Anaheim, California (June 30, 2009) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the new Digital Design Guide for Professional AV Systems, a practical approach to the integration of digital technologies into new and legacy presentation systems. The richly illustrated 80-page Guide is an essential reference as the AV industry adopts digital video and audio. It provides a comprehensive resource for AV system designers seeking to understand these emerging technologies and the many options available to them.

"AV integrators are facing the challenges and opportunities presented by the need to integrate digital and analog video into system designs," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron. "The Digital Design Guide addresses the AV industry's primary issue as it begins the transition from analog to digital – how to integrate new signal types and system topologies into AV presentation systems."

The Digital Design Guide explains each of the digital video formats most commonly used in commercial AV applications, including DVI, HDMI, HD-SDI, and DisplayPort. It also includes sample AV system designs, ranging from a simple classroom to a network operations center, that describe the practical aspects of these transitional AV systems, the type of equipment needed, and signal flow from one device to another. Following the system design section is a condensed catalog of Extron products designed for the integration of these digital technologies. Finally, the Guide offers a comprehensive glossary of terms related to digital video for professional AV applications.
