Extron launches new four-input scalers
Electronics manufacturer Extron has just announced the immediate availability of new IN1804, a series of compact four-input scalers that provide state-of-the-art video scaling, switching and integration features.
They support HDMI 2.0 data rates up to 18Gbps and incorporate the Extron-exclusive Vector 4K scaling engine with 4:4:4 chroma sampling and 30-bit internal video processing for best-in-class image quality.
They also offer seamless switching effects, logo keying, still image recall and optional twisted pair capability.
“The IN1804 Series sets the bar for 4K/60 4:4:4 switching and scaling with uncompromised image quality and advanced features,” says Extron vice president of sales and marketing Casey Hall.
“These next generation scalers deliver the highest performance for the most demanding applications and give customers flexibility in addressing a wide variety of system designs.”
Two available IN1804 models provide signal extension over shielded twisted pair cable.
The IN1804 DI includes a DTP2 twisted pair input that can receive signals from remote DTP and DTP2 transmitters mounted at a conference table, lectern or wall.
The IN1804 DO has a DTP2 twisted pair output that can send signals to a DTP or DTP2 receiver mounted behind a flat panel display, above a ceiling mounted projector, or in other remote locations. DTP transmitters and receivers are available in compact, low-profile enclosures, plus wallplate and floorbox form factors to suit a range of professional environments.
Both can be integrated into an XTP CrossPoint matrix switcher system making it ideal for facility-wide AV system applications with a centralized AV signal distribution infrastructure, as well as several presentation spaces with local AV switching and processing.
