Anaheim, California (June 18, 2008) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce over 20 new products for integrating DVI and HDMI sources and displays, including DVI and HDMI matrix switcher boards for the SMX System MultiMatrix, and the first products from Extron for dual link DVI applications including an Extender and an Equalizer. Extron is also introducing two Fiber Optic Extenders for long distance DVI transmission, four DVI distribution amplifiers, and two scalers for converting analog RGB signals to DVI and HDMI.

"We are pleased to offer these new products to address our customers' increasing needs for reliable, integrator-friendly solutions for incorporating DVI and HDMI in their system designs," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron. "Our DVI and HDMI product line enables integrators to design and build a fully digital video pathway, maintaining pristine image quality from source to display."

Extron expands the scope of DVI and HDMI signal distribution solutions with four new DVI DAs with up to eight outputs, and the SMX DVI Pro Series and SMX HDMI Series matrix switcher boards for the SMX System MultiMatrix Modular Multi-Plane Matrix Switchers. The boards are available in 4x4, 4x8, 8x4, and 8x8 sizes, and are HDCP compliant. For dual link DVI applications, Extron offers the DVI DL 101, a dual link DVI equalizer that attaches to the end of a long DVI cable run, and automatically provides the necessary active equalization to ensure optimal image quality. The DVI DL 201 is a transmitter and receiver set for sending dual link DVI signals over three economical and integration-friendly CAT 5-type cables. Both products extend DVI signals significantly beyond the 5 meter (15 foot) limitation for DVI cables.

For long-haul transmission, the DVI 104 provides an effective, economical solution for extending DVI signals up to 500 meters (1,640 feet) over four fiber optic cables, while the FOXBOX 4G DVI fiber optic transmitter and receiver set sends DVI, audio, and RS-232 signals over a single fiber up to 30 km (18.75 miles). Finally, the RGB-DVI 300 and RGB-HDMI 300 are scalers that convert incoming analog component video or RGB signals to DVI and HDMI, respectively, with selectable output rates up to 1920x1200, including HDTV 1080p/60.
