The Extron DVS 605 is a high performance, HDCP-compliant video scaler with three HDMI inputs, two universal analog video inputs, and simultaneous HDMI and analog high resolution outputs. The DVS 605 features advanced Extron video signal processing with deinterlacing of signals up to 1080i, Deep Color processing, and true seamless switching for professional-quality presentations. Designed for professional AV integration, the DVS 605 offers flexible control options including Ethernet, RS-232, USB, and contact closure. The DVS 605 is available with optional audio switching plus HDMI audio embedding/de-embedding, and a 3G-SDI/HD-SDI output with genlock.

Five Input Multi-Format Video Switcher

To accommodate a variety of sources, the DVS 605 features three HDMI inputs plus two universal analog video inputs that can automatically detect and process RGB computer video, HDTV, component video, S-video, and composite video. The DVS 605 provides the capability to integrate digital and analog video devices, with HDCP compliance to enable integration of Blu-ray Disc players and cable or satellite HD receivers. Auto-switching between inputs streamlines system operation as well as integration with presentation switchers or matrix switchers.

EDID Minder and Key Minder

To enhance and simplify integration of sources and displays, the DVS 605 Series features two Extron-exclusive technologies: EDID Minder® and Key Minder®. EDID Minder manages EDID communication between the display devices and input sources to ensure that the correct video formats are displayed reliably. For HDMI signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching. When receiving an HDCP-encrypted HDMI input source, the DVS 605 outputs a full-screen green signal on any video output connected to a non-HDCP compliant display. This provides immediate visual confirmation that the protected content cannot be viewed on this display.

High Performance Video Processing

The DVS 605 features an advanced scaling engine that can scale HDMI, RGB, HDTV, and standard definition video signals up or down in resolution. It 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. The DVS 605 accepts and outputs signals up to 1920x1200, including 1080p/60 and 2K.

The DVS 605 provides simultaneous outputs for HDMI and analog RGB or component video. An additional 3G-SDI/HD-SDI output with genlock is also available. Selectable FILL and FOLLOW modes are 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.

Create Professional Quality Presentations with Seamless Switching and Picture-in-Picture

The advanced video processing in the DVS 605 enables high quality, professional presentations with true seamless switching between Inputs 1 to 4 with selectable cut or dissolve transitions. The DVS 605 also features a flexible PIP picture-in-picture mode that allows any two video sources connected to Inputs 1 to 4 to be shown on one display. Several PIP presets are available, including side-by-side windows, and the PIP window can be dynamically sized and positioned anywhere in the image.

Audio Switching Models Available

All DVS 605 models provide automatic lip sync compensation for video processing delay. The DVS 605 A and DVS 605 AD feature five input audio switching to accompany incoming video sources. DVS 605 models with audio switching also feature HDMI audio embedding and de-embedding, plus gain and attenuation adjustments for each analog input. Audio outputs include fixed and variable balanced/unbalanced on captive screw connectors, as well as S/PDIF on coaxial RCA. Additionally, the DVS 605 AD can embed up to eight channels of audio onto the 3G-SDI/HD-SDI output.

Multiple Options for Control and Operation

The DVS 605 features front panel controls for quick access to functions. Remote configuration and control are available via USB, RS-232, and Ethernet, plus contact closure to control input switching. Housed in a 1U, full rack width metal enclosure, the DVS 605 can be easily integrated into many environments.
