XTP CP 4i VGA Four Input Board, Universal VGA w/ Stereo Audio 70-941-01

The XTP CP 4i VGA Input Board features universal video inputs that automatically detect incoming RGBHV, HD component video, and S-video signals. It provides the capability to connect a variety of local analog video sources to XTP Systems®. The XTP® board digitizes all incoming formats, and applies SD Pro processing to deinterlace 480i and 576i video signals for reliable display on a variety of output devices. It also features analog stereo audio inputs for independent routing of audio signals.

The XTP CP 4i VGA board switches high resolution video signals up to 1920x1200, including 1080p/60, and stereo audio. All incoming AV signals are digitized and can be switched to any XTP CP output board for local or remote signal distribution within XTP Systems. Extron-exclusive SD Pro processing ensures compatibility with HDMI and DVI-equipped displays, without the need for additional scalers. Other integrator-friendly features include automatic input format detection, a substantial variety of picture controls, and EDID Minder®, which automatically manages EDID communication between the source and destination, ensuring reliable transmission of the digitized signal.

Four balanced/unbalanced stereo audio inputs with audio breakaway capability, volume adjustment, and muting capabilities add switching and distribution flexibility. Audio signals are digitized to two-channel PCM digital audio for separate audio routing within the system. Audio breakaway provides the capability to separate audio signals from corresponding video signals for switching to different destinations. These digitized signals can also be embedded into the signal stream of the HDMI, DVI, and XTP twisted pair outputs.

Extron XTP Systems

Extron XTP Systems provide a completely integrated switching and distribution solution for multiple digital and analog formats. They support local connectivity as well as extended transmission capability for sending high resolution video, audio, RS‑232, and Ethernet up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a shielded CATx cable and even greater distances over fiber optic cabling. Each system is HDCP compliant and delivers ultra‑fast, highly reliable digital switching with Extron's SpeedSwitch® Technology.

At the heart of a system is an XTP CrossPoint matrix switcher. The modular matrix switchers are expandable from 4x4 to 64x64, depending on frame size, and can be populated with a wide variety of XTP I/O matrix boards. Input and output boards provide direct HDMI, DVI, VGA, video, and audio connections to local sources and displays, and signal extension to remote endpoints when using XTP transmitters and receivers. The matrix switcher can also provide power to a remote XTP device over CATx cabling, depending on transmitter model.

The online XTP System Builder gives convenient access for complete system design. The tool also features a printable bill of materials, pricing, and quote submittal. Once the order is confirmed and received, the included XTP System Configuration Software enables easy setup and configuration right out of the box.

To configure, operate, and monitor the system in real time, user-friendly control software offers a complete view of all XTP devices from a computer. With hot‑swappable modular components, a wide selection of XTP transmitters and receivers, and advanced 24/7 system monitoring, XTP Systems are designed to provide continuous, trouble‑free operation in the most critical applications.
