Extron’s industry first HDMI scalers14 April 2016
Extron has introduced the DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A and DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi, which are claimed to be the industry’s first scalers able to process 4K/60 video signals at 4:4:4.
The scalers incorporate the Extron Vector 4K scaling engine and HDCP 2.2 compliant HDMI 2.0 inputs and outputs, which support data rates up to 18 Gbps. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi provides the added flexibility of scaling and managing 4K/60 as a dual path signal. Both scalers also include integrator-friendly features such as on-screen display, stereo audio embedding and de-embedding, and the ability to display custom on-screen images and logos.
“We are extremely pleased to be the first to deliver scalers that support 4K resolutions at 60Hz with 4:4:4 signal processing. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A scalers are ideal for critical quality imaging of full motion video and highly detailed graphics in the most demanding 4K applications,” said Casey Hall, VP of sales and marketing for Extron. “These scalers are the culmination of our many years of engineering and research and deliver industry-leading 4K scaling performance.”
The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A has a single HDMI input and output that support resolutions up to 4,096 x 2,160 at 60Hz. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi features a pair of HDMI inputs and outputs. The additional input and output allow integration with source devices and displays that support 4K as two columns. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi can also accept two matched-resolution inputs for side-by-side display on a single screen, or provide duplicate outputs for driving a pair of displays.
