Anaheim, California (January 20, 2009) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce that all models in the DVI DA and DVI DA Plus series of DVI distribution amplifiers are now shipping. The DVI DA includes an existing two output version and a new four output version, while the new DVI DA Plus features four, six, and eight output versions. All models accept one single link DVI source and distribute digital video signals to multiple devices. They are compatible with DVI resolutions up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz, including HDTV 1080p/60. The DVI DA Plus models also feature EDID Minder®, which ensures that the DVI source powers up properly and maintains proper video output even if the digital display device is off, and source signal presence indication for quick, visual confirmation of system functionality. All of these distribution amplifiers are well-suited for a broad range of applications where a fully digital signal path from source to destination is preferred.

"Extron's growing line of DVI distribution products is a reflection of our commitment to help integrators create reliable end-to-end digital AV systems," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron. "We enhanced the DVI DA Plus models with EDID Minder® and source signal presence indication as a direct response to integrators requesting these advanced features in DAs."

All Extron DVI distribution amplifiers feature automatic input equalization, which restores and reshapes incoming DVI signals, minimizing jitter effects that can be a problem when DVI signals are routed through multiple active devices. The distribution amplifiers are housed in 1U high, rack-mountable enclosures and include an external, universal power supply for worldwide power compatibility
