The CP HD 8K I/O boards accept HDMI 2.1 data rates up to 40.1Gbps
Designed to route video, audio, bidirectional control and Ethernet, the XTP II CrossPoint Series matrix series has been enhanced with the development of the CP HD 8K I/O Boards. Accepting HDMI 2.1 data rates up to 40.1Gbps and enabling support of uncompressed 8K video with HDR, the HDCP 2.3-compliant boards provide input equalisation and output re-clocking in addition to connecting active HDMI cables. The XTP II CP HD 8K I/O Boards provide up to 50Gbps backplane of XTP II CrossPoint Series matrix switchers for accommodating a combination of resolutions, frame rates and colour bit depths supported within the HDMI 2.1 specification.
The Californian manufacturer has added a new wall plate transmitter in the form of the 4K/60 4:4:4 HDMI DTP2 T 201 D. Capable of supporting video resolutions up to 4K/60 at 4:4:4 colour sampling and HDCP 2.3-compliant, the one-gang model can transmit HDMI signals up to 100m over a shielded CATx cable to other Extron DTP-enabled products. Supporting CEC pass-through and embedded HD lossless audio formats, the transmitter wall plate can be applied in point-to-point applications or with an Extron IN1800 Series presentation switcher or other DTP-enabled products.
Enabling content to be shared from computers, tablets or smartphones on a display, Extron has created the ShareLink Pro 1100 4K wired and wireless presentation system. Support for Windows 10 sharing via Miracast will soon be made available using an optional adapter without the need to download software. ShareLink Pro systems support simultaneous display of up to four devices, including an HDMI-connected device, and dynamically updates the display layout as new content is shared or removed. Wireless and wired sources with computer and video resolutions up to 4K are supported for connection to 4K displays, with the HDMI input supporting wired connections from any connected source. Extron GlobalViewer Enterprise (GVE) software allows multiple units to be managed across an enterprise or campus. Designed to display the entire screen for more fluid and easy collaboration sessions, the ShareLink Pro 1100 allows full-screen mirroring for all devices including Mac/Windows computers and Android/iOS tablets and smartphones. In addition, centralised management tools enable simultaneous configuration, firmware updates, management, monitoring and control of multiple units from one central location.
