EXTRON INTRODUCES 4K/60 @ 4:4:4 HDMI SCALERS
Extron Electronics has introduced the DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A and DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi scalers that can process 4K/60 video signals at 4:4:4. HDCP 2.2 compliant HDMI 2.0 inputs and outputs support data rates up to 18 Gbps. The scalers incorporate Extron’s Vector 4K scaling engine, developed internally by Extron’s expert team of signal processing engineers for critical-quality 4K applications. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi provides scaling and managing 4K/60 as a dual path signal. The scalers provide many integrator-friendly features, such as on-screen display, stereo audio embedding and de-embedding, internal test patterns, and the ability to display custom on-screen images and logos.
“We are extremely pleased to be the first to deliver scalers that support 4K resolutions at 60 Hz with 4:4:4 signal processing. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A scalers are ideal for critical-quality imaging of full-motion video and highly detailed graphics in the most demanding 4K applications,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “These scalers are the culmination of our many years of engineering and research and deliver industry-leading 4K scaling performance.”
The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A has a single HDMI input and output that support resolutions up to 4096×2160 at 60Hz. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi features a pair of HDMI inputs and outputs, with the additional I/O allow integration with source devices and displays that support 4K as two columns. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi can also accept two matched-resolution inputs for side-by-side display on a single screen, or provide duplicate outputs for driving a pair of displays.
