In the last of a trio of announcements this past week, Extron Electronics revealed that they were now shipping their new XTP SR HD 4K scaling receiver. The world leading audio visual solution manufacturers described the new product as featuring Extron Vector 4K scaling technology for uncompromised image quality.
The XTP SR HD 4K scaling receiver is HDCP 2.2 compliant, and enables extension of 4K video up to 330 feet (100 meters) over one shielded CATx cable. Joining Extron’s existing XTP 4K twisted pair products, the new addition to the company’s line offers even more options for bringing 4K resolutions into existing and new XTP Systems.
Speaking as part of Extron’s shipping announcement, the organisation’s vice president of sales and marketing Casey Hall explained some of the XTP SR HD 4K’s major features and the benefits they provide:
‘The XTP SR HD 4K scaling receiver brings added flexibility for integration of end-to-end XTP Systems with the highest level of 4K support…Whether you are upscaling or downscaling, the Vector 4K 4:4:4 colour processing and high performance frame rate conversion retains original colour detail and delivers images free of visual artefacts.’
The new XTP SR HD 4K receiver provides multiple capabilities for streamlined operation and integration. It employs advanced scaling technology to convert all input signals to the desired optimal output resolution, audio de-embedding to digital S/PDIF or analog stereo audio outputs, and can be remotely powered from XTP CrossPoint Matrix Switchers.
