The Extron DTP T DSW 4K 233 is a three input switcher for sending DisplayPort, HDMI, or analog video, audio, and control up to 230 feet (70 meters) over a shielded CATx cable to Extron DTP®‑enabled products. It provides DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA inputs, and one DTP 230 output. The DTP T DSW 4K 233 supports video signals at resolutions up to 4K, including 2560x1600. Analog stereo audio embedding and RS‑232 remote control facilitate integration in professional environments. Integrator-friendly features include EDID Minder®, auto-switching between inputs, audio input assignment, and bidirectional RS‑232 and IR pass-through for remote AV device control. The low profile enclosure enables discreet placement in lecterns, beneath tables, or wherever needed to meet application requirements.

The DTP T DSW 4K 233 provides reliable switching and transmission of DisplayPort, HDMI, and analog video signals. For simplified operation, the DTP T DSW 4K 233 can automatically switch between the digital and analog sources. Stereo analog audio can be embedded onto the digital video output signal for transport over DTP. To suit the needs of the application, there is also the option to send analog audio alongside the video and control signals over the shielded twisted pair cable to a DTP‑enabled matrix switcher, switcher, or signal processor. In addition, the analog input can be assigned to any of the three video inputs, or it can be set to follow the input switch.

To enhance and simplify integration of sources and displays, and to help ensure optimal system performance, the DTP T DSW 4K 233 features EDID Minder. EDID Minder is an Extron-exclusive technology that manages EDID communication between the display device and input sources to ensure that the correct video formats are displayed reliably.

The switcher supports simultaneous transmission of bidirectional RS‑232 and IR signals from a control system for AV device control. For added installation flexibility, the DTP T DSW 4K 233 transmitter can supply power to a DTP receiver over the shielded twisted pair cable. This simplifies installation and allows both devices to share one power supply. The DTP T DSW 4K 233 can be integrated with an Extron DTP CrossPoint® Presentation Matrix Switcher, and other DTP‑enabled products to support sources at remote locations. The switcher is housed in a 1" (2.5 cm) high, half rack width metal enclosure that allows for discreet placement in lecterns or beneath tables.

The DTP output can be configured for compatibility with HDBaseT-enabled displays to send digital video and embedded audio, plus bidirectional RS‑232 and IR signals up to 230 feet (70 meters) over a shielded CATx cable.

The DTP T DSW 4K 233 offers convenient control options, including front panel control, RS‑232, and contact closure with tally output. Configuration of the DTP T DSW 4K 233 is made simple with Extron’s PCS - Product Configuration Software with a user-friendly GUI that is very easy to navigate. This software application allows for expedited setup and commissioning, real-time operation and monitoring, plus the ability to configure several units in the same session.

Extron recommends Extron-certified XTP DTP 24 shielded twisted pair cable, shielded RJ‑45 plugs, jacks, and couplers engineered for optimum signal transmission with Extron DTP Series products. The XTP DTP 24 cable is certified to 475 MHz and utilizes a SF/UTP design with four unshielded 24 AWG twisted pair conductors inside an overall braid and foil shield for superior performance and noise immunity.
