Extron introduces DTP 4K Switchers for DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA with audio embedding

Extron Electronics recently introduced the DTP T DSW 4K 233 and DTP T DSW 4K 333, three input switchers for sending DisplayPort, HDMI, or VGA, audio, and control over a shielded CATx cable to Extron DTP-enabled products. The DTP T DSW 4K 233 extends signals up to 230 feet (70 meters), while the DTP T DSW 4K 333 extends signals up to 330 feet (100 meters). They provide DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA inputs, and one DTP output. Both DTP T DSW 4K models support video resolutions up to 4K, including 2560×1600 and 1080p/60 Deep Colour. Analog stereo audio embedding and RS-232 remote control facilitate integration in professional environments. Integrator-friendly features include EDID Minder, auto-switching between inputs, audio input assignment, and bidirectional RS-232 and IR pass- through for remote AV device control. The low profile enclosure and remote power capability enable discreet placement in lecterns, beneath tables, or wherever needed to meet application requirements.

“The DTP T DSW 4K multi-format switchers allow integration of the latest digital video formats alongside legacy VGA sources, with convenient input connectivity at the conference table or lectern,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “The small form factor, along with audio embedding and auto- switching capability, makes these switchers a great choice for collaborative AV environments.”

The DTP T DSW 4K 233 and DTP T DSW 4K 333 can be set up to automatically switch when they detect active video signals, making them ideal for automatic routing and unattended operation. Stereo analog audio can be embedded onto the digital video output signal for transport over DTP. In addition, the analog audio input can be assigned to any of the three video inputs, or it can be set to follow the input switch. For added installation flexibility, the DTP T DSW 4K switchers can be remotely powered by Extron DTP-enabled products over the shielded twisted pair cable. They also offer a selectable HDBaseT output mode that provides compatibility with any HDBaseT-enabled display.
