EXTRON SHIPPING NEW 4K/60 @ 4:4:4 HDMI SCALERS
Extron has introduced the DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A and DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi, what it calls the AV industry’s first scalers that can process single-path 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 the Vector 4K scaling engine. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi provides the added flexibility of 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.
“The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A scalers are the AV industry’s first to support 4K resolutions at 60Hz with 4:4:4 signal processing. They 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. “This industry-leading 4K scaling performance is a direct result of our ongoing commitment to world-class engineering and research.”
The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A has a single HDMI input and output that support resolutions up to 4096×2160 at 60 Hz. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi features a pair of HDMI inputs and outputs. The additional input and output 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.
In addition to 4K signal integration and processing capabilities, the scalers offer several other features. Custom images can be displayed as a screen saver, HDCP notification, or corporate branding. An image can also be displayed as a logo with full position and keying control. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A and DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi also feature essential audio integration capabilities, including discrete, selectable analogue and digital audio muting, input gain and attenuation, and output volume control.
