Extron shipping IN1608 switcher with HDBT

Extron Electronics has announced it is now shipping the IN1608 HDBT featuring an HDBaseT-compatible output for streamlined integration with HDBaseT-enabled displays.

This twisted pair output can be used to send digital video and embedded audio, plus bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals up to 330 feet (100 metres) over shielded CATx cable.

It includes an HDCP-compliant, multi-format video switcher, an advanced scaling engine, integrated DTP signal extension, an available high performance mono or stereo amplifier, and an available built-in IPCP Pro 350 control processor for complete AV system control.

The IN1608 can also remotely power each of the DTP transmitters over the same CATx cable, streamlining system design and installation.
