Extron, a world leading manufacturer and supplier of audio visual solutions, have in the past few days announced the certification of multiple Canon professional-grade projectors for direct connection and quick setup within XTP Systems.
As a result of the new certification, the twisted pair inputs on the Canon WUX5800, WUX6700, WUX5800Z, WUX6600Z, WUX7000Z, and WUX7500 projectors can be set to be recognized as an XTP receiver. That means that video, audio, RS-232 control, and Ethernet signals can be transmitted directly to the device.
The announcement from Extron means that Canon are another world renowned name to join the list of leading display manufacturers offering commercial projectors and flat panel displays that have been certified for Extron XTP systems.
According to Extron, such certified projectors and displays are ideal for simple point-to-point installations or for use in combination with an XTP II CrossPoint or XTP CrossPoint matrix switcher for AV signal switching and distribution applications.
Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron, explained the potential benefits offered by the newly XTP certified projectors:
‘Consultants and integrators continually look for better ways to deploy streamlined designs and simplify the installation process…XTP-certified display devices such as the Canon projectors simplify designs, are easy to integrate, and provide transparent operation in the widest variety of commercial environments.’
