Extron introduces HDMI switchers

Extron Electronics has announced that its SW HDMI LC two and four input switchers are now shipping. These switchers support HDMI 1.3 specification features, including data rates up to 6.75 Gbps, Deep Colour, Lip Sync, and HD loss-less audio formats.

HDCP compliance ensures interoperability with other HDCP-compliant devices. The switchers support all HDTV rates including 1080p/60 with 12-bit Deep Colour, and PC resolutions up to 1920x1200. Front panel LED indicators provide visual confirmation of signal presence. Input cable equalisation for each input compensates for cables up to 50 feet in length. The SW HDMI LC switchers are ideal for sending HDMI video and embedded multi-channel digital audio to a single display.
Input cable equalisation corrects for signal loss due to lengthy input cables, ensuring signal integrity for up to 50 feet of Extron HDMI Pro Series cable at 1080p/60 with 8-bit colour. The switchers also supply +5 VDC, 250mA on the HDMI output, providing power for peripheral devices such as an Extron HDMI 101 cable equaliser.
