DA HD 4K Series

The Extron HDMI DA Series of distribution amplifiers reliably distributes one HDMI source signal to two, four, or six displays. The HDMI DA Series supports HDMI specification features including data rates up to 6.75 Gbps, 12-bit Deep Color, 3D, Lip Sync, and HD lossless audio formats. The HDCP-compliant distribution amplifiers support HDTV 1080p/60, 2K, and PC resolutions up to 1920x1200. The HDMI DA Series features two Extron technologies: EDID Minder® that maintains continuous EDID communication between connected devices and Key Minder®, which continuously authenticates HDCP encryption between all devices, ensuring the simultaneous distribution of source content to all displays. The HDMI DA Series is ideal for applications that require the distribution of an HDMI source signal to multiple displays.

To enhance and simplify integration, the HDMI DA Series offers integrator-friendly features including automatic input cable equalization, automatic color bit depth management, selectable output muting, indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as peripheral device power on each output. The DAs provide automatic input cable equalization up to 50 feet at 1080p/60 with 8-bit color on Extron HDMI Pro Series cables. Input cable equalization restores and reshapes incoming HDMI signals, reducing the need for additional signal conditioning equipment by compensating for weak source signals or signal loss from a long input cable.

The HDMI DA Series automatically adjusts color bit depth based on the display EDID, preventing color compatibility conflicts between source and display. Outputs can be muted independently via RS-232, allowing content to be previewed on a local monitor. The distribution amplifiers provide immediate visual confirmation of EDID status, HDCP authentication, and signal presence confirmation for each port via front panel LED indicators. The HDMI DA Series also provides +5 VDC, 250 mA on each output for powering peripheral devices such as a UHD4K 101 or HDMI 101 Plus cable equalizer.

The HDMI DA2 is housed in a 1-inch (2.5 cm) high, quarter rack width metal enclosure that can be mounted in a rack or discreetly installed behind a display. The HDMI DA2 can also be mounted beneath a desk or other furniture surface with the MBU 125 Mount Kit. It includes an external, universal power supply for worldwide power compatibility. The HDMI DA4 and HDMI DA6 are housed in 1U high, half rack width metal enclosures and are equipped with internal universal power supplies. For under-desk mounting, the MBU 123 is recommended.
