Extron releases surround sound processor
Extron’s SSP 200 high-performance surround sound processor is designed for pro-AV applications in corporate and commercial environments.
Available now, the new processor automatically decodes Dolby and DTS formats from HDMI sources to discrete audio outputs. Providing up to ten built-in outputs, plus additional outputs via an EXP port, the SSP 200 provides the flexibility needed for multimedia system requirements, including support for the latest immersive formats of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.
An upmix function synthesises exceptional multichannel audio from stereo content.
The SSP 200 is housed in a 1U, half rack width enclosure that is rack mountable and occupies a fraction of the space required by a consumer surround processor or AV receiver. It can be controlled and configured using RS 232 serial control or via a network connection.
Extron vice president of sales and marketing, Casey Hall, says the SSP 200 address the increasing demand to provide immersive audio systems in boardrooms and auditoriums.
“It offers a host of integrator-friendly features not found on other surround sound processors, all provided in a compact half-rack package that makes the SSP 200 the AV professional’s clear choice over bulky consumer receivers.”
