The Extron IN1608 xi 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 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 DTP output is configurable for HDBaseT compatibility. The IN1608 xi 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 xi also includes a host of audio switching and processing features.
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 xi 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.
To simplify integration of HDMI sources and displays, and to help ensure optimal system performance and dependability, the IN1608 xi features three Extron-exclusive technologies: EDID Minder®, Key Minder®, and SpeedSwitch®. EDID Minder manages EDID communication between the display devices and input sources to ensure that the correct video formats are displayed reliably. For HDMI signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching. With SpeedSwitch Technology, the IN1608 xi delivers exceptional, virtually instantaneous switching speeds for HDCP-encrypted content.
