The new DTP CrossPoint 84 matrix switcher delivers all the capabilities needed to design and integrate a complete AV system including an 8×4 matrix switcher with 4K inputs and outputs, two built-in independent scalers, integrated DTP and XTP transmitters and receivers, and comprehensive audio DSP capabilities “unmatched in the industry” according to Extron.


“The DTP CrossPoint 84 is a 4K matrix switcher in a compact form factor that integrators can specify for a very wide range of applications to deliver significant cost savings for their clients,” says Extron sales and marketing VP, Casey Hall. With no integrated control processor or amplifier, the model gives system designers greater flexibility to add external units tailored to meet the needs of each installation, he says.

The model is ready for use with all of the latest 4K capable graphics cards, 4K cameras, and the growing number of displays with 4K and UHD native resolutions. DTP twisted pair inputs and outputs provide real flexibility in how and where AV and control signals can be distributed – integrators can choose from a complete offering of digital twisted pair transmitters and receivers with single and multi-input models available for furniture and wall-mount applications. The twisted pair inputs and outputs can also be used to connect to any display with an HDBaseT input or tie into a centralised, facility-wide XTP system to add local room-based AV systems.

A high performance scaler is paired to each of the two DTP outputs so incoming source signals can be optimised and converted to deliver high quality image content for display. Integrators can easily connect sources and displays and set up switching ties, with plug-and-play simplicity, automatic device negotiation, and nearly instantaneous switching delivered with Extron EDID Minder, Key Minder, and SpeedSwitch.

The integrated professional grade DSP features the same Extron 64-bit ProDSP technology in the award-winning DMP 128 digital matrix processors. Integrators can customise system designs and mixes, with fully configurable EQ, filters, dynamics and extensive matrix mixing options. If a large number of microphones or speaker destinations are needed, the model offers a digital audio expansion port that links the internal DSP to a DMP 128 for additional inputs and outputs, or to add AEC to a conferencing system. It can also be linked into a DMP 128 on a Dante network for further system expansion.
