Extron just announced it’s shipping the DTP2 T 204, a four-input switcher with integrated DTP2 transmitter for sending HDMI and control up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a shielded Catx cable to an Extron DTP-enabled product. It supports computer and video resolutions up to 4K@60Hz at 4:4:4 color sampling. This HDCP 2.3-compliant switcher includes features such as EDID Minder, Key Minder and selectable HDCP authorization. Ethernet control enables centralized system management. The half-rack width enclosure enables discreet placement within lecterns, beneath tables, or wherever needed to meet application requirements.
The DTP2 T 204 switcher provides reliable routing of HDMI video at data rates up to 18 gigabits per second, along with HDR, Deep Color up to 12-bit, 3D and embedded HD lossless audio formats. For simplified installation, it can be remotely powered by a DTP2‑enabled product over the twisted pair connection. It can also be configured to provide power to the connected DTP2 receiver product. DDC communication of EDID and HDCP is continuously maintained between source and display to ensure direct compatibility and optimal signal transmission between devices. The DTP2 T 204 switcher also features contact closure and tally outputs for integration with Extron Show Me cables.
