The Extron IN1608 is an HDCP-compliant scaling presentation switcher with four HDMI inputs, two universal analog video inputs, and two Extron DTP® inputs. It includes dual HDMI outputs, one DTP output, an integrated Class D audio power amplifier, and a built‑in IPCP Pro 350 control processor for complete AV system control. The DTP inputs and output work with DTP endpoints to extend video, audio, and bidirectional control signals. Each DTP transmitter/receiver link requires just a single shielded CATx cable. The IN1608 provides the convenience of supporting local and remote sources and displays, with fast and reliable source switching, and a high performance scaling engine for HDMI and analog sources. The IN1608 also includes a host of audio switching and processing features. Models are available with an HDBaseT-compatible output.

Integrated Digital Twisted Pair Extension

The two DTP twisted pair inputs can receive signals from remote DTP transmitters in areas such as a conference table, lectern, or wall for connecting a guest laptop. The DTP twisted pair output can be used to transmit from an IN1608 in a rack to a DTP receiver behind a flat-panel display on a wall, above a ceiling-mounted projector, or any other remote location. DTP transmitters and receivers are available in compact, low-profile enclosures, plus decorator-style wallplate and floorbox versions to suit the installation requirements of a specific application.

The DTP twisted pair inputs and output include additional convenient, integrator-friendly features designed to help simplify installation. Bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals can be inserted from a control system and transmitted over the single shielded CATx cable together with the video and audio, enabling control of a source or display. Additionally, the IN1608 can send power to select DTP transmitters and receivers over the same shielded CATx cable, streamlining system design and installation.

The IN1608 supports a maximum transmission distance of 330 feet (100 meters) when paired with a DTP 330 transmitter or receiver. Shorter distances can be covered using economical DTP 230 endpoints to extend video, control, and audio signals up to 230 feet (70 meters).

Models Available with an HDBaseT-Compatible Output

For integration flexibility, IN1608 HDBT models include a twisted pair output that is HDBaseT compatible. This output can be used to send digital video and embedded audio, plus bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals up to 330 feet (100 meters) over shielded CATx cable to any HDBaseT-enabled display.

Built for Digital Video Integration

To simplify integration of HDMI sources and displays, and to help ensure optimal system performance and dependability, the IN1608 features three Extron-exclusive technologies: EDID Minder®, Key Minder®, and SpeedSwitch®.

    Communications — external device (pass-through, unidirectional or bidirectional) (RS-232/IR over DTP or RS-232/IR over HDBT)
        NOTE     Protocol is mirrored between the connected twisted pair endpoints and the "Over DTP" or "Over HDBT" ports on the IN1608. Signals from a control device pass into each IN1608 "Over DTP"  or "Over HDBT" port, are embedded with the twisted pair signal, and sent to individual twisted pair Tx or Rx endpoints for control of remote sink or source devices.

    The "Over DTP" or "Over HDBT" ports are simply pass-through connections to twisted pair endpoints. There is no RS-232 or IR insertion from any IN1608 control port to the “Over DTP” or "Over HDBT" ports.
