Extron Now Shipping Four-Channel DTP Output Card for Quantum Ultra with Selectable DTP / XTP / HDBaseT Output Modes

10/10/2017 6:04 PM

Anaheim, California (October 10, 2017) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new Quantum OUT4DTP, a four-channel DTP output card for the Quantum Ultra videowall processor. The Quantum OUT4DTP card sends video signals up to 330 feet (100 meters) over shielded CATx cable. In four-channel mode the unit supports resolutions up to 2K. Dual-channel mode supports two single path 4K/30 signals, while single-channel mode supports one dual-path or quad path 4K/60 signal. Output format selection provides a choice of DTP, XTP, or HDBaseT output modes. Power insertion on the Quantum OUT4DTP enables remote powering of DTP receivers, eliminating the need for separate power supplies at the remote units. Bidirectional RS-232 and IR insertion provides control of AV devices by transmitting data alongside the video signal over DTP connections, allowing the remote device to be controlled without the need for additional cabling.

"The award-winning Quantum Ultra has been recognized for its industry leading performance and quality," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The new four-channel DTP output card adds reliable twisted pair signal transmission for videowall system applications that require long cable runs."

Quantum Ultra is a modular 4K videowall processor with high-performance scaling and windowing technology which accommodates a wide range of applications. It features the Extron Vector 4K scaling engine and HyperLane video bus capable of carrying a multitude of high-resolution sources for unmatched real-time performance. A single processor can support multiple videowalls with mixed resolutions and screen orientations, providing flexible system design with minimal complexity and cost. Portrait and landscape output support, output overlap, mullion compensation, and custom output resolutions provide compatibility with nearly any display technology. RS-232 and Ethernet interfaces provide direct connections for control systems. Quantum Ultra’s configurability, features, and performance make it a future-ready solution for any videowall application.
