 HDXP Plus 1616 16x16 3G-SDI Matrix Switcher 60-807-01 Retired

This product has been retired.

The Extron HDXP Plus 1616 matrix switcher is capable of routing all SMPTE and ITU standard digital serial video signals up to 2.97 Gbps, including dual-link HD-SDI and 3G-SDI digital video signals. In addition, the HDXP Plus 1616 will pass embedded audio, as well as ancillary ID and metadata information, along with the digital video signal. It is ideal for routing HDTV and other high resolution digital video sources for digital cinema projection, biomedical imaging, satellite mapping and visualization, rental and staging environments, and other applications.

Zero-Skew Design

The HDXP Plus Series utilizes a unique, zero-skew design that's optimized for the switching of SMPTE 372M dual-link HD-SDI digital video signals. Adjacent pairs of input and output connectors share equal data paths, ensuring that dual-link signals are switched without undesirable timing errors. Incoming signals are equalized to 330 feet (100 meters) or more on Extron RG6 or equivalent cable.

HDXP Plus matrix switchers automatically adapt to the input signal rate, and the output is automatically reclocked to the rate of the signal routed to it. In addition to automatic reclocking, users can also disable reclocking, on a per output basis, or preset output reclocking to a fixed rate. This ensures standards independence, now and in the future, with virtually any serial digital video data rate.

Switching Modes

The HDXP Plus Series features two discrete switching modes for ease-of-operation. Matrix Switching Mode provides for selection of any input to any or all outputs. Preview Mode allows any selected input to be routed to a separate, dedicated preview output. The preview output is in addition to the available program outputs, and eliminates the possibility of preview signals being inadvertently routed to a live program output during a presentation.

Control Features

The HDXP Plus Series is engineered with a range of innovative Extron control features designed to simplify operation in critical presentation environments.

Key features include I/O grouping, which allows SDI and HD-SDI inputs and outputs of different data rates to be grouped together, thus eliminating the chance that an input of one data rate will be switched to an output requiring a different rate.

Extron's DSVP™ - Digital Sync Validation Processing provides verification of both input data rates and reclocked output data rates through RS-232 as well as Ethernet. DSVP adds a level of confidence when designing a multi-rate digital video routing system with a variety of input and output digital signal types.

Ethernet Control

The HDXP Plus Series is equipped with an integrated, high performance Web server that provides technical support personnel with the ability to receive service and failure messages through an e-mail-enabled cell phone, PDA, pager, or e-mail account. Utilizing Ethernet control, the help desk can also view embedded Web pages to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot the switcher.
