Extron introduces new 4K/60 HDMI distribution amplifiers
Extron Electronics has announced the new DA HD 4K Plus series one input, multiple output distribution amplifiers for HDMI signals at resolutions up to 4K/60 at 4:4:4 chroma sampling.
The distribution amplifiers are ideal for applications requiring the distribution of a 4K/60 HDMI source signal to multiple displays and are available in two, four, and six output sizes. All come with an external, universal power supply for worldwide power compatibility.
Supporting data rates up to 18Gbps, HDR, deep colour up to 12-bit, 3D and HD lossless audio formats, the DA HD 4K Plus series are HDCP 2.2 compliant. They also include integrator-friendly features, including automatic input cable equalisation, automatic colour bit depth management and selectable output muting via RS-232.
“We are pleased to introduce the next generation of Extron HDMI distribution amplifiers, meeting the increasing need for 4K video distribution. With 18Gbps data rate capability, the DA HD 4K Plus series provides the performance required to distribute 4K/60 signals at 4:4:4 chroma sampling, ensuring pristine performance for the most demanding applications,” says Extron Electronics vice president of worldwide sales and marketing Casey Hall.
Front panel indicators provide easy monitoring and troubleshooting to enhance and simplify integration, while outputs can be muted independently via RS-232 to allow content to be previewed on a local monitor.
The DA HD 4K Plus series also features Extron EDID Minder and Key Minder technologies to maintain continuous EDID communication between connected devices. This ensures simultaneous distribution of HDCP-encrypted source content.
