Extron Ships 4-In Switcher with Integrated HDMI Extender
Extron announces the DTP2 T 204, a 4-in switcher with DTP2 transmitter, sending HDMI and control 100 meters over shielded CATx.
It supports computer and video resolutions up to 4K/60 at 4:4:4 colour sampling. This HDCP 2.3-compliant switcher includes many integrator-friendly features, such as EDID Minder, Key Minder, and selectable HDCP authorisation. Ethernet control enables centralised system management. The half-rack width enclosure enables discreet placement within lecterns, beneath tables, or wherever needed to meet application requirements.
“We designed the DTP2 T 204 to be flexible and robust, with true 4K/60 switching capability plus long-distance signal transmission,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. “With four HDMI inputs, auto-input switching, and Ethernet capabilities, it has the versatility to be the central switcher for meeting and classroom AV installations, as well as being integral to larger DTP Systems.”
The DTP2 T 204 switcher provides reliable routing of HDMI video at data rates up to 18 Gbps, along with HDR, Deep Colour up to 12-bit, 3D, and embedded HD lossless audio formats. For simplified installation, it can be remotely powered by a DTP2‑enabled product over the twisted pair connection. It can also be configured to provide power to the connected DTP2 receiver product. DDC communication of EDID and HDCP is continuously maintained between source and display to ensure direct compatibility and optimal signal transmission between devices. The DTP2 T 204 switcher also features contact closure and tally outputs for integration with Extron Show Me cables.
