Extron Electronics, a world leading manufacturer of all kinds of audio visual solutions, have recently announced that they are now shipping their new SW4 12G HD-SDI four-input, two-output 12G-SDI switcher.
The SW4 12G switches multi-rate SDI video, embedded audio, and other ancillary data between four source devices, according to Extron’s shipping announcement, and delivers simultaneous output signals to a pair of SDI displays or sink devices.
The new switcher, too, is able to support video resolutions up to 4K/60, HDR, and data rates up to 11.88 Gbps, including all common serial digital video data rates specified by SMPTE and ITU standards.
Automatic input cable equalisation and output re-clocking are also provided in order to ensure signal integrity over long cable runs. Ease of integration into a variety of applications and environments, what’s more, is ensured thanks to the switcher’s RS-232, front panel, and auto-input switching control options.
Speaking in light of the announcement of the SW4 12G’s immediate availability, Extron’s vice president of global sales and marketing, Casey Hall, explained in a nutshell what the new Extron AV solution provides users:
‘Broadcast quality with Pro AV features are rolled into a four-input switcher engineered to meet your system design requirements…The SW4 12G HD-SDI provides 12G-SDI signal switching for Pro AV environments requiring 4K/60 video support.’
