Extron XTP and Pro Series control help NCSOFT deliver the games the world plays
Extron’s XTP and Pro Series Control helps NCSOFT, an international leader in the multiplayer online gaming industry, keep pace and high-performance scene switching and colour depths which are integral to advanced game development and presentation.
Headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, the project included the auditorium and convention hall with an LED display at the front of each room while displays mounted on the side walls augment viewing.
Content is sourced from local laptops and connected mobile devices as well as HD robotic cameras.
Integration firm YOUNGJUN TNC worked closely with NCSOFT to design an XTP system for each room to support HDMI and SDI signals with 4K@60 4:4:4 video routing. The XTP system is operated using Exton Pro Series control products.
“The Extron XTP Systems and Pro Series control products provide all that is needed for this multiplayer online game developer and international leader in the video game industry,” YOUNGJUN TNC director Denis Park says.
The XTP II CrossPoint matrix switcher was chosen or its flexibility, robust integration features, modular frame and redundant power supplies. Its built-in technologies streamline the exchange of EDID and HDCP-encrypted content.
A 50Gbps backplane provides the bandwidth for 4K@60 at 4:4:4, as well as the 48Gbps data rate of 8K video. Each control system is based on an Extron IP Link Pro processor that includes the LinkLicense for User Interfaces upgrade.
