"When William Beaumont Hospital and the Tyner family built a state-of-the-art Instructional Hybrid Operating Center for Cardiology they wanted to match the Learning Center with the same type of technology. National Communications Corporation teamed up with Extron to provide just that. We used XTP as the core of the signal transmission teamed up with a Quantum Elite Video Wall Processor and various other Extron devices to distribute audio and video to both the OR Viewing Room and the Instructional Classroom. Beaumont uses the system to train surgeons from all over the world in the latest cardiovascular medicine. Extron played an instrumental role in the planning phases and was available all the way through the installation process, providing excellent support and knowledge, both onsite and off. The ease of integration and reliability of the equipment is why we chose to work with Extron on all of our projects."

"The modularity and scalability of the XTP System allowed us to create a completely digital AV distribution system that fully supported our needs for switching of HD video formats with accompanying audio. The ability to accommodate local connectivity and remote locations via twisted pair transmission allowed us to route all signals through the XTP CrossPoint with additional flexibility for breakaway audio switching within the system."
"The XTP System switches between video formats with quickness and stability. The large offering of input & output boards gives flexibility for customizing system applications while minimizing the number of unused ports. The ability to output directly from the XTP CrossPoint over just one twisted pair cable saves cable cost and eliminates the need for additional transmitters, thus reducing required rack space too. XTP transmitters are great, as they can be powered remotely from the XTP CrossPoint and their small size makes for easy installation. This also makes them convenient for any interior design."
Systems Design Engineer
"You’re not doing complex configurations to get everything up and running; instead it's pull up the XTP software and you’re ready to go. Just 15 minutes out of the box and the XTP System is working."
"I had previous experience with several of the Extron technologies that are part of the XTP feature set. Their Key Minder and SpeedSwitch Technology work just as expected. The EDID and HDCP management features and setup also made installation a lot easier than with other manufacturers' products."

"I had the pleasure of using the XTP switcher on a project recently and I cannot say enough about this excellent Extron product. It was great that I did not need to use vital Ethernet ports from my PoE switch to power the transmitters and receivers. The switching was fast and EDID was a breeze to setup. That was a relief, as this can be tricky on some other digital switches. It was a great solution that addressed all the needs of our client."
"The XTP System provides the high performance that’s needed without detracting from the sophistication of Avnet’s Executive Conference Room."
"The decision to standardize on Extron is due to a number of factors, not least of which is our long experience with the reliability of the products and Extron's outstanding customer service."
"The XTP System was an ideal choice for its ability to maintain signal integrity over long distances and transmit video, audio, power, and also device control with just one twisted pair cable."
Sales & Engineer
"We were asked recently to design and install a Team Building Room for a higher education client. We selected the Extron XTP System over other solutions because of the routing flexibility it offered to meet current as well as future functional switching requirements. Installation and setup of the switch was relatively simple. What few questions we did have were quickly addressed by Extron Support remotely accessing the box to check that all settings were correct. With simplicity of cabling and connection, transmitting video, audio, control, and power over twisted pair with the XTP switch is the way to go."

"Extron XTP training has given me the tools needed to design, quote, and integrate XTP Systems with ease and confidence."
"We had a very short time frame to design the system, and get all the equipment in place, installed, commissioned, and ready for staff. This went extremely smoothly, but there is always that element of keeping your fingers crossed and hoping. Throughout the Olympics, the XTP was foolproof. It didn’t skip a beat."
"This was a new product so it wasn’t something that we had specific experience with, but we felt that the XTP would fit the purpose."
"We had a constant flow of celebrities, VIPs, and world media. The pressure to get things right was intense, and we were dedicated to keeping the AV side of things running smoothly. I was pleased to find out how easy the XTP System was to install, configure, and operate. The ‘works out of the box’ capability makes me much more confident deploying it in this type of application."
"Extron XTP Systems has given the industry a long-anticipated, future-proof solution for AV designs with digital signal distribution requirements. Our first XTP System was proposed and implemented last year in the Macau at Bank of China – Macau Branch. The Client stressed the demand for a highly reliable system that could be expanded upon for expected use over many years. The 4K readiness and modularity of XTP frames provided the exact product to address their needs. System deployment was easy with no requirement for complicated configurations. The outstanding and always reliable technical support offered by Extron throughout the design and installation phases gives us additional peace of mind when it comes to specifying XTP Systems into future AV projects."

"Thanks to the XTP System we were able to equip all the classrooms in a new college building project with Extron AV systems. The computer lab required a large matrix system to accommodate five displays and 28 inputs. The XTP System not only fit for the matrix capability but also gave us additional benefits, such as a centralized location to connect control, support for local inputs at the teaching desk, and the ability to send video, audio, and control over one twisted pair cable. It also turned out to be nice to send Ethernet since the original design did not include drops at the displays or input locations. Extron’s support, as usual, was fantastic throughout the entire project, although it wasn’t needed much since the system was so simple to install and configure."
