DTP2 CrossPoint 82
The DTP2 CrossPoint 82 is an all-in-one AV matrix switching solution that sets a new benchmark standard for professional matrix switching environments. It supports video resolutions up to 4K/60 @ 4:4:4 for all video inputs and outputs. Built-in Extron DTP2 input and output connections extend video, audio, and control signals up to 330 feet (100 meters) over CATx cable. Extron patented Vector 4K Scaling, ProDSP audio processing, integrated IPCP Pro control processor and available 100 watt Class D power amplification make the DTP2 CrossPoint 82 the ideal, all-in-one matrix switcher for meeting rooms and classroom applications.
4K/60 @ 4:4:4
With a maximum data rate of 18 Gbps, the DTP2 CrossPoint 82 supports computer and video resolutions up to 4K/60 with full 4:4:4 chroma sampling. The Extron-exclusive Vector 4K scaling engine applies precision 30-bit processing and maintains 4:4:4 chroma sampling to ensure pristine image quality at the output. This level of processing retains fine image and color detail such as single pixel lines and text in computer content.
Competing scalers commonly process in the YCbCr, or component domain, employing 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 chroma subsampling. This decreases the bandwidth required to process the signal, at the expense of reduced color detail. Chroma subsampling may be acceptable when processing full-motion video content, but with PC-generated content, subsampled color can negatively impact the clarity of the image. Vector 4K 4:4:4 color processing retains the fine color details present in the original source.
4K/60 Matrix Switching
The DTP2 CrossPoint 82 supports 4K/60 signals at all video inputs and outputs. Matrix switching between the inputs and outputs enables a wide range of design possibilities to meet the audio and video requirements of boardrooms, lecture halls, or other applications with multiple sources and displays.
Vector 4K Scaling
The Vector 4K scaling engine incorporates Extron-engineered, multi-tap, bicubic interpolation, which creates a new pixel by averaging adjacent pixels above, below, to the sides, and diagonally of the new pixel. This produces sharp, accurate output, preserving single-pixel detail that other scaling methods lack.
Vector 4K algorithms continually and dynamically adapt, ensuring optimal processing for upscaling, downscaling, or 1:1 pass-through applications. Two less robust alternatives to bicubic interpolation are “nearest neighbor interpolation,” whereby a pixel is duplicated to an adjacent pixel, and “bilinear interpolation,” which creates a new pixel by averaging adjacent pixels above, below, and to the sides of the pixel being created. Both of these methods can produce substandard output, resulting in data loss that may render the content unusable.
For fast, glitch-free video switching performance in demanding applications, four seamless transition effects are available on the scaled DTP2 output.
- Cut through Black — instantly cuts the current input to black, then cuts to the new input
- Fade through Black — fades the current input to black, then fades to the new input
- Seamless Cut — freezes the current video frame, then instantly cuts to the new input
- Seamless Fade — freezes the current input video frame, then fades to the newly selected input
HDMI and DTP2 Outputs
The DTP2 CrossPoint 82 features one HDMI output and one scaled DTP2 twisted pair output. They are independent and support convenient display of single or individual inputs within the system. The DTP2 output can extend video, audio, and control signals to a display located up to 330 feet (100 meters) away.
Image storage and keying
JPEG, PNG, and BMP image files can be uploaded for use as logos or supplementary content and displayed on the scaled DTP2 output. Logos can be positioned anywhere on screen. Image transparency is supported, including Alpha channel, level keying, and color keying. Full screen images up to 4096 x 2160 resolution can also be recalled to provide information to the presentation audience.
In many professional AV installations, audio quality is just as important as video performance. DTP2 CrossPoint matrix switchers are built for easy accessibility and flexible processing of audio signals.
Audio from sources such as microphones or music players can be embedded onto the video output. Audio that is present in the video output can be extracted and routed for additional processing or amplification.

Everlast Power Supplies
We design and manufacture our Everlast Power Supplies in-house, employing premium-quality components and highly efficient, modern topologies for thermal management, transistor switching, energy dissipation, and virtually every other critical aspect of the power system. Each Everlast Power Supply is built with the same care and meticulous attention to detail as our award-winning high-end video products.
AV hardware manufacturers typically use generic off-the-shelf power supplies from 3rd party vendors. These mass-produced power supplies are frequently designed to meet a low price point, employing the least expensive components meeting the minimum manufacturing spec. Using a plastic fan assembly instead of a superior metal alternative, or a cheap diode vs. an efficient transistor, or a 10 cent capacitor instead of a 20 cent version might save some pennies in manufacturing costs, but those savings can turn into expensive liabilities when the product fails to power up. These high-volume, low-cost power supplies often employ older design principles and dated topologies.
