The Extron XTP CP 4K Input and Output Boards enable extension of video, audio, bidirectional control, and Ethernet over a shielded CATx cable. These XTP® I/O boards are HDCP 2.3 compliant and support video signals at resolutions up to 4K. To streamline integration, embedded digital audio signals can be routed independently. Ethernet extension along with RS‑232 and IR insertion provide LAN access and remote AV device control. Signals can be sent up to 330 feet (100 meters) over shielded twisted pair cable. Available in four-input and four-output models, each twisted pair port can supply remote power to XTP endpoints and the TouchLink 12", 15", and 17" Pro Touchpanels . The XTP CP 4K I/O boards support signal routing and extension over long distances within XTP Systems®.

Each XTP port on a board is partnered with an accompanying Ethernet extension port that allows for convenient transmission of 10/100 Ethernet over the one twisted pair cable. In addition, bidirectional RS‑232 and IR insertion is provided for AV device control at remote locations.

The XTP CP 4i 4K is an XTP input board capable of receiving signals from remote source locations up to 330 feet (100 meters) away. It supports four XTP inputs along with Ethernet extension and features four local bidirectional RS‑232 and IR insertion ports for simultaneous control of remote devices.

For audio, the input board provides comprehensive audio management with the ability to independently route stereo audio from XTP transmitters to any or all compatible switcher outputs. The XTP CP 4i 4K can also de‑embed two‑channel PCM audio from HDMI signals for separate analog stereo audio signal routing. Incoming signals can be switched to an XTP output board for local or remote signal distribution.

The XTP CP 4o 4K is an XTP output board capable of transmitting signals to remote destinations up to 330 feet away. It supports four XTP outputs along with Ethernet extension, and features four bidirectional RS‑232 and IR insertion ports for simultaneous control of remote AV devices.

The XTP CP 4i 4K (70-940-21) and XTP CP 4o 4K (70-943-21) boards also can remotely power select XTP transmitters and receivers over the same CATx cable used for sending AV signals. This reduces the need to separately power XTP devices at remote locations.

Extron recommends Extron-certified XTP DTP 24 shielded twisted pair cable, shielded RJ‑45 plugs, jacks, and couplers engineered for optimum signal transmission with Extron XTP Systems. The XTP DTP 24 cable is certified to 475 MHz, and utilizes a SF/UTP design with four unshielded 24 AWG twisted pair conductors inside an overall braid and foil shield for superior performance and noise immunity.

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 up to 10 km (6.21 miles) over fiber optic cable. 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, 3G-SDI, 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.
