Anaheim, California (February 6, 2019) - Extron is pleased to announce the ISS 608, an eight-input seamless switcher for the dynamic presentation and scaling of DisplayPort and HDMI content at resolutions up to 4K/60 @ 4:4:4 at a maximum data rate of 18 Gbps. Advanced, presentation-enhancing features include Extron Vector 4K scaling technology and multiple transition effects, as well as logo insertion, video keying, and PIP to complement primary content. An independent Preview output facilitates confident delivery of content. For streamlined integration, the switcher provides audio management and multiple control options, including an intuitive front panel, RS-232, and Ethernet. Matrix Mode adds automatic, seamless transitions to any matrix switcher with HDMI outputs. The features and capabilities of the ISS 608 provide a true seamless switching solution for high-end presentation environments and live events.

“Increasingly, digital presentation applications require advanced capabilities, such as high-performance image scaling, logo and title overlays, and sophisticated switching effects,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. “This switcher provides all of these, plus DisplayPort and HDMI inputs with program and preview outputs, making the ISS 608 perfect for environments that require enhanced switching capabilities..”

The ISS 608 provides six HDMI 2.0 and two DisplayPort 1.2 inputs that support signals up to 4096x2160 at 60 Hz with 4:4:4 color sampling. HDCP 2.2 compliance and Extron technologies such as Key Minder ensure compatibility with high value, encrypted 4K content. The switcher’s multiple transition effects include wipes with selectable direction and duration, a dissolve with selectable duration, and a seamless cut, eliminating distracting jumps, glitches, and delays for clean, production-style source switching. Separate Preview and Program outputs enable the operator to review sources on a local monitor before switching them to the viewing audience.
