Extron distribution amp supports 4K

AUTHOR: Inavate

Extron Electronics has released the DA2 HD 4K, a one input, two output HDMI distribution amplifier designed to support 4K applications.

It provides distribution of computer and video resolutions up to 4096x2160, including 1080p/60 with Deep Color. It is HDCP compliant, and supports data rates up to 10.2 Gbps, 3D, Lip Sync, and HD lossless audio formats. Automatic input cable equalisation ensures 4K signal integrity up to 50 feet when used with Extron HDMI Pro Series cables. Features include automatic colour bit depth management, selectable output muting, and Extron technologies for EDID and HDCP management. The DA2 HD 4K is ideal for applications that require the distribution of a 4K HDMI source signal to two displays.

EDID Minder automatically manages EDID by maintaining continuous EDID communication with each source, in an effort to ensure that sources power up properly and reliably output content for display. For HDMI signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption to support reliable transmission while enabling simultaneous distribution of a single source signal to two displays. It also provides +5 VDC, 250 mA on each output for powering peripheral devices, such as an Extron UHD4K 101 or HDMI 101 Plus cable equaliser.
