Anaheim, California (June 17, 2009)- Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce over 40 new digital video products for integrating DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort. This comprehensive product lineup includes modular and fixed I/O DVI and HDMI matrix switchers in sizes up to 16x16, new DVI switchers with up to eight inputs, high performance DVI and HDMI cables in lengths up to 200 feet (60 meters), and a new line of DisplayPort cables and adapters designed for use in commercial AV systems. This new lineup demonstrates the continuing commitment by Extron to the development of digital video technologies and solutions for the AV presentation market.

"Extron has a long history of developing digital products, going back nearly a decade with the release of some of the industry's first DVI distribution and extension products," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron. "We are pleased to offer what has now become a complete, end-to-end product line that includes digital video interfaces, cables, switchers, and distribution products that deliver the exceptional performance, operational reliability, and integration-friendly features for which Extron is known."

The DCX 1600 modular digital matrix switcher provides HDCP-compliant DVI and HDMI switching and is compatible with signal resolutions up to 1920x1200 and 1080p/60.
