Features

  • Video scaler with audio switching, seamless switching, and keying capability
  • Inputs: RGBHV or HD component video color space on five female BNCs; RGB pass-through, component video, or RGB with composite video sync from SCART connectors on five female BNCs; three composite video or S-video on female BNCs; optional SDI Serial Digital Interface on female BNC - DVS 406 AD
  • Outputs: Simultaneous RGB output on five female BNCs and a female 15-pin HD
  • Scales composite video, S-video, component video, and optional SDI inputs with RGBHV pass-through
  • 55 selectable output rates from 640x480 to 1400x1050, including HDTV 1080p/60 — The DVS 406 offers 55 user-selectable computer-video output rates, up to 1400x1050 and including HDTV 720p, 1080i, and 1080p/60.
  • Accepts balanced/unbalanced stereo audio signals for each video input on captive screw connectors
  • HDTV component video to RGB converter — Converts HDTV component video input signals to RGB, eliminating the need for external switching by a display device.
  • DMI™ - Dynamic Motion Interpolation — DMI technology is an advanced motion detection and compensation method used to deliver the best aspects of still and motion video.
  • Patented 3:2 and 2:2 pulldown detection — Advanced film mode processing techniques which help maximize image detail and sharpness for NTSC or PAL sources that originated from film.
  • AFL™ - Accu-RATE Frame Lock — A patented technology exclusive to Extron that solves frame rate conversion issues experienced by video scalers.
  • Aspect ratio conversion — Ability to horizontally and vertically size any video input to meet a specific aspect ratio. Three memory presets for aspect ratio are available for each input by pushing each input button repeatedly.
  • Seamless switching with a cut or variable-rate dissolve — Switching is seamless to and from the RGB video on input one. Presentations can be enhanced by eliminating distracting visual jumps, glitches, and distortion commonly seen when switching between computer and video sources.
  • Quad standard video decoding — The DVS 406 uses a digital, four-line adaptive comb filter to decode NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.43, PAL, and SECAM for integration in systems worldwide.
  • Variable top and bottom vertical blanking — Eliminates edge noise caused by tapehead switching and captioning.
  • Keying capability — Title information or other content from an input source can be displayed over the current image. The content is keyed into the display at a selected luminance level.
  • Front panel security lockout — This feature locks out all front panel functions except for input selection; all functions however, are available through RS-232 control.
  • RS-232 control port — Using serial commands, the DVS 406 can be controlled and configured via the Extron Windows®-based control program, or integrated into third-party control systems. Extron products use the SIS™ - Simple Instruction Set command protocol, a set of basic ASCII code commands that allow for quick and easy programming.
  • Optional IR 901 handheld IR remote control — The optional Extron IR 901 Remote Control allows for input source switching, Image Freeze Control, and direct access to picture adjustments.
  • Rack-mountable 1U, full rack width metal enclosure
  • Internal international power supply — The 100-240VAC, 50/60 Hz, universal power supply provides worldwide power compatibility.

Note: Part numbers 60-363-02 and 60-363-04 have been retired.
