Anaheim, California (May 17, 2018) – Extron is pleased to announce the certification of multiple Canon professional-grade projectors for direct connection and quick setup within XTP Systems. The twisted pair inputs on the Canon WUX5800, WUX6700, WUX5800Z, WUX6600Z, WUX7000Z, and WUX7500 projectors can be set to be recognized as an XTP receiver. This enables video, audio, RS-232 control, and Ethernet signals to be transmitted directly to the device. Canon joins the many industry-leading display manufacturers offering commercial projectors and flat panel displays that have been certified to be connected directly to an XTP twisted pair transmitter for simple point-to-point installations or in combination with an XTP II CrossPoint or XTP CrossPoint matrix switcher for AV signal switching and distribution applications.
“Consultants and integrators continually look for better ways to deploy streamlined designs and simplify the installation process,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “XTP-certified display devices such as the Canon projectors simplify designs, are easy to integrate, and provide transparent operation in the widest variety of commercial environments.”
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 video with resolutions up to 4K, audio, RS‑232/IR, and Ethernet up to 330 feet (100 meters) over 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.
