Anaheim, California (May 10, 2016) - Extron Electronics is delighted to announce that the new DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A and DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi scalers won prestigious awards at two major shows on two separate continents last month. The scalers won Best of Show at InfoComm China 2016 from the editors of InfoAV China. They also won the NewBay Best of Show award at the 2016 NAB show from Sound & Video Contractor magazine. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A and DSC HD-HD Plus A xi are the AV industry’s first scalers that can process 4K/60 video signals at 4:4:4. HDCP 2.2 compliant HDMI 2.0 inputs and outputs support data rates up to 18 Gbps. The scalers incorporate the Extron exclusive Vector 4K scaling engine, developed internally by Extron's expert team of signal processing engineers for critical-quality 4K applications. The scalers provide many integrator-friendly features, such as on-screen display, stereo audio embedding and de-embedding, internal test patterns, and the ability to display custom on-screen images and logos. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A scalers are ideal for critical-quality imaging of full-motion video and highly detailed computer graphics in the most demanding 4K applications.

"We are extremely honored that our new industry-leading 4K scalers have won Best in Show awards at two major shows on two separate continents," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The culmination of many years of engineering and research, the DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A scalers represent one of our most significant engineering developments to date."

The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A and DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi incorporate the Extron-exclusive Vector 4K scaling engine. Vector 4K is the latest generation of Extron scaling, engineered in-house for critical-quality 4K signal processing. The Vector 4K scaling engine delivers the power and precision required to manage 4K content. Whether integrating legacy sources with 4K displays, or downscaling 4K content to HD displays, Vector 4K provides unparalleled processing and clarity for any 4K application.

The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A has a single HDMI input and output that support resolutions up to 4096x2160 at 60 Hz. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi features a pair of HDMI inputs and outputs. The additional input and output allow integration with source devices and displays that support 4K as two columns. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi can also accept two matched-resolution inputs for side-by-side display on a single screen, or provide duplicate outputs for driving a pair of displays.

In addition to 4K signal integration and processing capabilities, these scalers offer several features that enhance and simplify AV system integration. Custom images can be displayed as a screen saver, HDCP notification, or corporate branding. An image can also be displayed as a logo with full position and keying control. The DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A and DSC HD-HD 4K Plus A xi also feature essential audio integration capabilities, including discrete, selectable analog and digital audio muting, input gain and attenuation, and output volume control.
