DSC DP-HD A DisplayPort to HDMI Scaler with Audio De-Embedding 60-1454-01

The Extron DSC DP‑HD A is a high performance, HDCP-compliant scaler that converts DisplayPort signals to HDMI. It accepts DisplayPort video at resolutions up to 3840x2160 @ 30 Hz with reduced blanking, and offers high performance scaling with multiple output rates up to 1920x1200, including 1080p/60 and 2K. The DSC DP‑HD A features advanced Extron video signal processing with deinterlacing of signals up to 1080i, and Deep Color processing. It includes many integrator-friendly features such as auto-memory presets, on‑screen display, test patterns, EDID Minder®, stereo audio de‑embedding, and a DisplayPort input loop-through, while the compact enclosure simplifies installation. The DSC DP‑HD A is ideal for interfacing high resolution DisplayPort signals into AV systems with an HDMI switching and distribution infrastructure.

High Performance Video Processing

The DSC DP-HD A provides high performance deinterlacing of all interlaced signals up to 1080i, and Deep Color processing to deliver optimal image quality. Automatic 3:2 and 2:2 pulldown detection maximizes image quality for content sources originating from film. Additionally, the color space and chroma subsampling of the HDMI output can be automatically set to ensure compatibility with a connected DVI or HDMI display.

Selectable FILL and FOLLOW modes are also available to ensure the proper aspect ratio of the output. FILL mode provides full screen output, while FOLLOW mode preserves the original aspect ratio of the input signal.

Enhanced Audio Capabilities

The DSC DP-HD A delivers essential audio integration capabilities, including DisplayPort stereo audio de-embedding, selectable audio muting, and output volume control. The DSC DP-HD A includes a convenient analog two channel audio output, for sending de-embedded audio to a sound system or other audio destination. This output can be set for stereo or dual mono.

Multiple Options for Control and Operation

The DSC DP-HD A features front panel controls for quick access to functions. Remote configuration and control are available via RS-232 and USB. The on-screen menus provide control over the unit's functions and settings, including quick access to key parameters such as input and output video formats and resolutions. Additionally, LED indicators on the front panel provide visual confirmation of input and output signal format, and signal presence. The DSC DP‑HD A is housed in a 1U, half rack width metal enclosure and can be easily integrated into a variety of environments.
