The Extron DXP DVI Pro Series are high performance matrix switchers for single link DVI-D signals. They are HDCP compliant, and support resolutions up to 1920x1200 and HDTV 1080p/60, enabling simultaneous distribution of content-protected signal sources to one or more compliant displays. The series features intelligent technologies that help integrators ensure reliable system operation and compatibility between digital devices, including Key Minder®, HDCP Visual Confirmation, EDID Minder®, and Automatic Input Cable Equalization and Output Reclocking. Available in I/O sizes from 4x4 to 8x8, the DXP DVI Pro Series is ideal for applications that require reliable, high performance routing of DVI and HDMI digital signals between multiple devices.

To enhance and simplify integration of DVI-equipped sources and displays, the DXP DVI Pro Series features two key Extron technologies: EDID Minder and Key Minder. EDID Minder automatically manages EDID communications for each input/output tie. By maintaining continuous EDID communication with all sources, EDID Minder ensures that all DVI sources power up properly and maintain their video outputs whether or not they are actively connected to the digital display devices through the matrix switcher's outputs. For DVI signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching in professional AV environments while enabling simultaneous distribution of a single source signal to one or more displays. If a signal from an HDCP-compliant source is routed to a non-compliant display, the switcher outputs a full-screen green signal, providing immediate visual confirmation that the protected content cannot be viewed on the selected display.

DXP DVI Pro matrix switchers also feature automatic cable equalization for all inputs and output reclocking for each output. This reduces the need for additional signal conditioning equipment by compensating for weak source signals or signal loss when using long input cable assemblies. Automatic output reclocking restores signal integrity for improved performance. Signals are reshaped and the timing is restored to allow for transmission over long DVI cables. Additionally, all matrix switchers offer +5 VDC, 250 mA on the DVI outputs for powering external peripheral devices.

The DXP DVI Pro Series matrix switchers are ideal for various commercial, medical, military and government, and residential environments where distribution of high resolution, digital video signals is needed, and a fully digital pathway is essential to maintain the highest possible image quality, from multiple sources to multiple displays.

**Extron strongly recommends compatibility testing while designing and before installing any 3D system. There are several unique 3D formats in use by source devices and display manufacturers. The level of 3D product support is governed by pixel clock, signal format, and communication between source and sink devices. Please contact an Extron Application Engineer for more information.
