Anaheim, California (March 10, 2005) – Extron Electronics introduces the new CrossPoint 450 Plus Series of Ultra-Wideband Matrix Switchers. Replacing Extron's popular CrossPoint Plus Series, the new CrossPoint 450 Plus Series now offers significantly higher 450 MHz (-3 dB) RGB bandwidth for the most demanding high resolution computer-video and audio routing systems. The CrossPoint 450 Plus Series is loaded with a host of new standard features, including Extron's exclusive Advanced Digital Sync Processing (ADSP™) technology, IP Link® Ethernet control technology, and audio output volume control.

"With substantially higher bandwidth and integrated features like IP Link, the CrossPoint 450 Plus Series combines industry-leading, high performance with an expanded feature set at a new, lower price to create one of the best values on the market today," says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing for Extron. ADSP technology corrects sync waveform and restores low sync voltage level, ensuring strong and reliable image reproduction with any LCD, DLP, plasma, or other digital display device. IP Link is an IP integration technology that enables AV resource management, diagnostics, and control, such as remote selection of I/O ties and adjustment of audio input and output levels, from any authorized Web portal. Audio output volume control simplifies system design by eliminating the need for separate audio preamplifiers. The CrossPoint 450 Plus Series is designed for optimum performance in command and control centers, biomedical imaging and training facilities, and other mission-critical environments. It consists of 22 models in 11 I/O sizes, ranging from 8x4 up to 32x32, including a new 8x16 size. Each I/O size is available in two versions: "HV" for switching RGBHV signals and "HVA" for switching RGBHV signals and stereo audio.
