The switchers support all HDTV rates including 1080p/60 with 12-bit Deep Color, and PC resolutions up to 1920×1200. Front panel LED indicators provide visual confirmation of signal presence. Input cable equalization for each input compensates for cables up to 50 feet in length, Extron says. The SW HDMI LC switchers are ideal for sending HDMI video and embedded multi-channel digital audio to a single display.
“The SW HDMI LC switchers bring Extron quality, reliability, and performance to HDMI switching applications, providing integrators and end-users alike with [an] extra measure of confidence,” said Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron, in a statement.
Input cable equalization corrects for signal loss due to lengthy input cables, ensuring signal integrity for up to 50 feet of Extron HDMI Pro Series cable at 1080p/60 with 8-bit color. The switchers also supply +5 VDC, 250mA on the HDMI output, providing power for peripheral devices such as an Extron HDMI 101 cable equalizer.
Convenient control options allow for easy integration into a variety of environments. These include front panel control, auto-input switching, IR, and RS-232 control. The SW HDMI LC switchers are housed in rack-mountable 1U, half rack width metal enclosures.
