Extron has introduced the XTP II CP 4i HD DMA 4K PLUS, an XTP input board that provides four HDMI inputs with multi-channel audio downmixing and stereo audio connectivity. It is HDCP 2.2-compliant and accommodates data rates up to 18 Gbps for support of video resolutions up to 4K/60 at 4:4:4 color sampling. Multichannel audio signals are maintained for HDMI switching and downmixed to two-channel PCM audio for independent routing within the system. Also, stereo audio can be embedded into the XTP signal stream for extension alongside video signals.
The XTP II CP 4i HD DMA 4K PLUS input board can be used with all XTP II CrossPoint matrixes, as well as original XTP CrossPoint models, with incoming signals being switched to an XTP output board for local or remote signal routing. This compatibility makes the HDCP 2.2-compliant input board an option for new and existing installations to support 4K video and audio switching and distribution. Extron says that the XTP II is the only AV technology platform that supports uncompressed 4K video while providing additional bandwidth to accommodate anticipated future video resolutions and formats.
