Anaheim, California (June 23, 2014) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Extron DTP CrossPoint 84, the new go-to product for presentation systems. This highly versatile, compact presentation matrix switcher delivers all of the technologically advanced capabilities necessary to design and integrate a complete AV system in one box, including a 4K matrix switcher, two built-in independent scalers, integrated DTP and XTP signal extension, a high performance mono or stereo amplifier, comprehensive audio DSP capabilities unmatched in the industry, and an advanced control processor that is uniquely expandable. The DTP CrossPoint 84 is the new industry standard for fully integrated AV systems, greatly simplifying system design and installation, and dramatically reducing total cost of ownership.

"We are very excited to be shipping the DTP CrossPoint 84, an industry-leading 4K presentation switcher that delivers complete system integration in a single product," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The functionality and performance offered by the DTP CrossPoint 84 are unmatched in the industry and include a powerful integrated audio DSP, two built-in high performance scalers for high quality video output, and a built-in IP Link Pro control processor that delivers the most powerful, advanced capabilities available in a configurable control system."

The DTP CrossPoint 84 can immediately be put to use for integration with the latest 4K-capable sources and displays. The DTP twisted pair inputs and outputs provide extraordinary flexibility in how and where AV and control need to be distributed. They can be used to connect to any display with an HDBaseT input, or tie into a centralized, facility-wide XTP System to add local room-based AV systems. A high performance scaler is paired to each of the two DTP outputs, so that incoming source signals can be optimized to deliver the highest quality image content for display. The DTP CrossPoint 84 also includes Extron EDID Minder, Key Minder, and SpeedSwitch for easy integration of sources and displays.

The integrated professional-grade audio DSP technology in the DTP CrossPoint 84 is unparalleled in the AV industry, based on the same Extron ProDSP technology in the highly regarded DMP 128 and DMP 64 digital signal processors. Integrators can customize system designs and mixes any way desired, with fully configurable EQ, filters, dynamics, extensive matrix mixing options, and so much more. A unique digital audio expansion port links the internal DSP to a DMP 128 for additional inputs and outputs for supporting a large number of microphones or speaker destinations, or to add AEC to a conferencing system. The DTP CrossPoint 84 can also be linked into a DMP 128 on a Dante network for even greater system expansion possibilities. In addition to the built-in DSP, a built-in mono or stereo 100 watt amplifier is included, featuring the same Extron core technologies found in the renowned, ENERGY STAR® qualified XTRA Series that delivers very high energy efficiency plus professional grade audio performance.

The DTP CrossPoint 84 features a built-in Extron IP Link Pro control processor, with the advanced features, processing power, and breakthrough technologies found in the standalone Extron IPCP Pro 350 control processor. The DTP CrossPoint 84 allows complete, customizable control of an entire AV system, including all source devices and displays, plus room functions. It is very intuitive and easy to configure with the latest version of Global Configurator™ software, which includes powerful, advanced features such as conditional logic, local variables, macros, and controller groups for combining with additional IP Link Pro processors to create large control systems. The purchase of an Extron LinkLicense with the DTP CrossPoint 84 allows a tablet or laptop to serve as the primary control interface for the AV system.
