Extron unveils IN1608 with HDBaseT compatibility

Extron Electronics has introduced the IN1608 HDBT scaling presentation switcher 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.

The IN1608 can serve as the central component for audio system integration. It includes eight-input audio switching, two mic/line inputs, HDMI audio embedding and de-embedding, and several audio processing features for mixing, ducking and tone adjustments.

IN1608 SA models feature a 2 x 50 watt Class D stereo power amplifier, while IN1608 MA models include a 100 watt Class D mono power amplifier.
