DSC HD-HD HDMI to HDMI Scaler 60-1489-01

The Extron DSC HD‑HD is a compact high performance, HDCP-compliant scaler that converts between HDMI resolutions and frame rates. It accepts video from 480i up to 1920x1200, 1080p, and 2K, and offers high performance upscaling and downscaling with multiple output rates up to 1920x1200, including 1080p/60 and 2K. The DSC HD‑HD 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 on‑screen display, test patterns, and EDID Minder®. The DSC HD‑HD is ideal for applications that require scaling HDMI video to match the different capabilities and requirements of sources, displays, codecs, and other equipment. The compact form factor allows simple integration at a source, destination, or in a distribution system.

High Performance Video Processing

The DSC HD-HD 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.

Multiple Options for Control and Operation

The DSC HD-HD features front panel controls for quick access to functions. Remote configuration and control are available via USB. The on-screen menus provide control over the unit's functions and settings, including quick access to key parameters such as HDCP status and embedded audio format. Additionally, LED indicators on the front panel provide visual confirmation of input and output signal format, and signal presence. The DSC HD-HD is housed in a 1" (2.5 cm), quarter rack width metal enclosure and can be easily integrated into a variety of environments.
