Extron Now Shipping Three Input Switcher with Integrated DTP Transmitter
Extron’s new DTP T USW 233 is a three input switcher for sending HDMI or analog video, audio and control up to 230 feet (70 meters) over a single CATx cable to an Extron DTP 230 receiver. It is HDCP compliant and provides two HDMI inputs, one RGBHV or component video input and one DTP 230 twisted pair output. Analog video input signals are digitized to ensure a high quality digital video signal is transmitted to the DTP 230 receiver. The switcher also offers features including EDID Minder, Key Minder, auto-switching between inputs, audio input assignment and remote powering. The low profile enclosure makes the DTP T USW 233 ideal for discreet placement in lecterns, beneath tables or in other environments requiring input switching and signal transmission.
The DTP T USW 233 provides reliable switching and transmission of HDMI signals, supporting Deep Color up to 12-bit and embedded HD lossless audio formats. For simplified operation, the DTP T USW 233 can automatically switch between the digital and analog sources. In addition, the analog audio input can be assigned to any of the three video inputs, or it can be set to follow the input switch.
The switcher includes an RS232 and IR insertion port, enabling simultaneous transmission of bidirectional RS232 and IR signals from a control system using the same twisted pair cable that transmits video and audio. For added installation flexibility, a single external power supply can be used to remotely power the DTP T USW 233 transmitter or a DTP 230 receiver over the twisted pair cable. The DTP T USW 233 offers convenient control options, including front panel control, RS-232, and contact closure with tally output for easy integration into a variety of environments.
