Anaheim, California (July 30, 2013) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the DTP T USW 233, a three input switcher for sending HDMI or analog video, audio, and control up to 230 feet (70 meters) over a single CATx cable to an Extron DTP 230 receiver. It is HDCP compliant and provides two HDMI inputs, one RGBHV or component video input, and one DTP 230 twisted pair output. The analog signals are digitized to ensure a high quality digital video signal is transmitted to the DTP 230 receiver. The switcher also offers many integrator-friendly features, such as EDID Minder, auto-switching between inputs, audio input assignment, and remote powering. These features plus the low profile enclosure make the DTP T USW 233 ideal for discreet placement in lecterns, beneath tables, or in other locations.
"Integrators and consultants are often challenged to find the ideal products that meet the connectivity requirements at the conference table or lectern," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The DTP T USW 233 combines digital and analog AV switching with twisted pair extension into one compact product that simplifies the installation and design of most installations."
The DTP T USW 233 provides reliable switching and transmission of HDMI signals, supporting Deep Color up to 12-bit and embedded HD lossless audio formats. For simplified operation, the DTP T USW 233 can automatically switch between the digital and analog sources. In addition, the analog audio input can be assigned to any of the three video inputs, or it can be set to follow the input switch. To simplify integration of sources and displays, the switcher features two Extron-exclusive technologies: EDID Minder and Key Minder. EDID Minder manages EDID communication between the display device and input sources to ensure that the correct video formats are displayed reliably. For HDMI signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching.
The switcher includes an RS-232 and IR insertion port, enabling simultaneous transmission of bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals from a control system using the same twisted pair cable that transmits video and audio. For added installation flexibility, a single external power supply can be used to remotely power the DTP T USW 233 transmitter or a DTP 230 receiver over the twisted pair cable. The DTP T USW 233 offers convenient control options, including front panel control, RS-232, and contact closure with tally output for easy integration into a variety of environments.
