This product has been retired.

The Extron Quantum® Connect is an HDCP-compliant videowall processor that delivers the same high quality video scaling, windowing capability, and reliable, real-time performance as Extron's flagship Quantum Elite. Quantum Connect is ideal for small to medium-sized videowalls with two to 14 screens in installations with permanent AV system configurations. It supports a wide variety of input, output, and windowing capabilities in a small form factor, and features high performance video scaling technology capable of producing superior quality images. The Quantum Connect is a non-expandable card-cage design that is populated at the factory with user-selected combinations of input and output cards for 3G-SDI, HDMI, DVI, RGB, HDTV or video sources. Each HDMI or DVI-I dual output card supports up to 128 video/graphic source windows.

The Quantum Connect maintains optimal full frame rate performance with a high-speed, 10 Gbps RAPT - Real-Time Asymmetric Packetized Transfer video/graphic bus that allows large numbers of inputs to be processed simultaneously, while preserving real-time control response and image performance.

When used in conjunction with HDCP-compatible displays, the HDMI input and output cards allow the display of HDCP-encrypted content on the videowall. A green window with an alert message will be displayed if HDCP-encrypted content is sent to a non-HDCP compliant display.

A variety of display scenarios can be pre-programmed or created on-the-fly using Quantum Connect Control Software, an intuitive control interface for setup and system operation. Many sources can be shown at small sizes, a few at large sizes, or many other combinations. All of this is complemented by high performance image scaling technology, which accurately preserves the original image quality at all window sizes.

The Quantum Connect is packaged into permanent configurations when shipped from the factory. Applications requiring greater scalability and the flexibility to expand over time should use the Quantum Elite processor.

The advantages of the Quantum Connect make it ideal for lobby displays in public spaces, digital signage in retail environments, and command and control displays.
