Anaheim, California (June 8, 2012) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of HDMI Input and Output Cards that add HDMI connectivity and HDCP compliance to the Extron Quantum Elite Videowall Processing System. These cards enable presentation of Blu-ray Disc, digital satellite or cable, and other HDCP-encrypted sources on HDCP-compliant displays. The Quantum HDMI Input Cards accept two HDMI inputs at resolutions up to 1920x1200 and HDTV 1080p/60. The Quantum HDMI Output Cards include two HDMI outputs for driving two videowall displays at resolutions up to 1920x1200 and HDTV 1080p/60, and display up to 128 windows per output card.

The Quantum Connect videowall processor is also available in HDCP-compliant system configurations.
"We've developed new HDMI input and output options for Quantum systems in response to the growing demand for AV Integrators to create videowalls that present Blu-ray, digital satellite, or other HDCP-encrypted sources," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "This new HDMI input and output capability solves the complexity of managing and presenting HDCP-encrypted content over multiple displays. Integration-friendly features include immediate visual indication of non-HDCP compliant displays and Key Minder® that continuously authenticates HDCP-compliant devices to ensure quick and reliable switching in professional AV environments."
