The HC 403 combines video switching, scaling, signal extension, and system control into a transmitter and receiver pair at a price point that fits any application. The HC 403 features one HDMI and one VGA input at the decorator-style wallplate transmitter, and one HDMI input at the receiver. Advanced Extron scaling technology ensures excellent image quality with maximum detail and color accuracy. Built-in control capabilities facilitate automatic source switching, display control, and integration with occupancy sensors for an intuitive, effortless user experience. Designed for professional integration, the HC 403 low-profile wallplate transmitter and compact receiver are ideal for discreet placement in walls, lecterns, or wherever required.

Effortless Collaboration

The HC 403 is easy-to-use and fully operational out of the box. Automatic power control and switching allow users to collaborate with minimal interaction with the AV hardware. The system powers the display on when a presenter connects a source device, and automatically switches to new source devices as they are connected. When no signal is detected, the system will power down after a predetermined time period. For further flexibility, integration with Extron OCS 100 occupancy sensors can automatically power the system on when users enter the room. Connecting a ShareLink wireless collaboration gateway to the receiver’s HDMI input adds support for wireless BYOD – Bring Your Own Device environments, providing effective collaboration and content sharing from a wide variety of mobile devices.

Reliable Operation

The HC 403 is a highly reliable AV system solution designed for professional requirements. It delivers high quality extension of video and audio signals for maximum performance and reliability. Multiple input connections are provided to support a wide range of video sources and resolutions. Advanced Extron video scaling ensures excellent video quality and EDID Minder technology ensures a consistently reliable image at the display.

Easy to Integrate

The HC 403 is simple to install and easy to set up. Robust signal extension over CATx eliminates the need for long video cables. For simplified installation, remote power capability enables a single supply connected at the receiver to provide power to both the transmitter and receiver.

Managing system AV settings is easy with Extron PCS – Product Configuration Software, which also allows convenient control of multiple systems. Ethernet connectivity facilitates management, monitoring, and control of AV devices over a standard network. The HC 403 offers built-in control processing, eliminating the need to connect additional equipment. Ethernet, RS-232, IR, CEC, and digital I/O ports are available on the receiver to control and interface with displays, sensors, switchers, or other equipment. No programming is required. Configuration is simple using Global Configurator, Extron’s powerful software for AV control systems.

Available with Zoom Room Control

Extron has partnered with Zoom Video Communications to extend professional AV system control capabilities to Zoom Rooms. This provides a one-touch user experience for conferencing, collaboration, and AV room control. There’s no more need to switch devices - a single interface on your Extron TouchLink® Pro Series touchpanel is all you need to control every conferencing and audiovisual function. The HC 400 Series Global Configurator System Template enabling Zoom Rooms functionality is freely downloadable.

Expandable Functionality

HC 403 system solutions can be expanded for even more functionality with a variety of compatible products. Wireless collaboration may be added with a ShareLink gateway and GlobalViewer Enterprise software can be used for remote device management.

HC 403 is compatible with TouchLink Pro touchpanels and NBP network button panels for complete user control. Purchasing a LinkLicense for User Interfaces upgrade will enable a mobile device or computer to serve as the primary control interface for the AV system.
