This product has been retired.

The Extron CrossPoint 450 Plus 1616 Series is designed to route ultra-wideband RGBHV and stereo audio signals. Both 16x16 matrix switchers feature 450 MHz (-3 dB) bandwidth, fully loaded, and are also fully compatible with RGBS, RGsB, HDTV, component video, S-video, and composite video signals.

Housed in rack-mountable, 19-inch wide enclosures, CrossPoint 450 Plus Series matrix switchers come standard with RS-232 and RS-422 serial control capability. The unique advantage of serial control is Extron's SIS™ - Simple Instruction Set. SIS simplifies serial control by utilizing a limited set of easy to read, ASCII command codes.

The CrossPoint 450 Plus Series also features three proprietary Extron technologies: ADSP™ - Advanced Digital Sync Processing, IP Link® Ethernet Control, and DSVP™ - Digital Sync Validation Processing.

ADSP Technology

Extron's ADSP technology is an all-digital process that corrects and restores the sync signal as it passes through the switcher. First, ADSP restores sync to TTL levels, 5.0 V p-p, ensuring that the projector or monitor accurately locks to sync and displays a stable image. Second, ADSP corrects the signal waveform to create sharp rising and falling edges, ensuring a more stable and reliable image in systems with different signal sources or cable lengths. Whether signal losses and distortion are caused by long cable runs, variations in display graphic card outputs, or low sync levels from many laptop computers, ADSP significantly reduces sync related problems, improving signal compatibility with many digital display devices.

IP Link Ethernet Control

The CrossPoint 450 Plus Series is equipped with Extron's IP Link, an IP integration technology specifically engineered to meet the needs of professional AV environments — from K-12 classrooms to large universities, businesses, and residential media systems.

IP Link is built around an integrated, high performance Web server that features global compatibility with industry standard Ethernet communication protocols, multi-user support, and GlobalViewer® software. GlobalViewer, a Web-based application, enables a variety of AV resource management functions including proactive maintenance and remote technical support from any administrator authorized LAN, WAN, or Internet client.

On the CrossPoint 450 Plus Series, IP Link provides technical support personnel with the ability to receive service and failure messages through an e-mail-enabled cell phone, PDA, pager, or e-mail account. Utilizing IP Link, the help desk can also view embedded Web pages to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot the switcher for the following:

AV Resource Management

  • Remotely select input and output ties for audio only, video only, or audio and video
  • Name and select global I/O presets
  • Set audio input and output volume levels
  • Set RGB delay time for glitch-free transitions
  • Upload firmware updates via the Internet

Operating Status and Diagnostics

  • Monitor primary and redundant power supply voltages
  • Monitor operating temperature
  • Recall firmware revision and other data for improved Help Desk support
  • Provides immediate notification via e-mail for loss of input signal, power supply failure, and other critical service information


  • Verifies active sources by polling inputs for horizontal and vertical sync rate information
