Publish date:

Anaheim, California (August 27, 2015) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new XTP II CrossPoint 6400 matrix switcher with a 50 Gbps digital switching backplane that delivers the highest level of performance in the Pro AV industry. Representing a monumental leap in engineering and product design, XTP II enables the deployment of an AV system infrastructure with a switching bandwidth that exceeds the data rate required to distribute 4K/60 video with 4:4:4 chroma sampling at 16 bits per color. It is the only AV technology platform that supports uncompromised 4K video while providing additional bandwidth to accommodate anticipated future video resolutions and formats. These matrix switchers can be configured with a variety of boards, including any of the existing products in the XTP Systems family and the new series of XTP 4K fiber optic boards and endpoints. XTP II is the definitive AV industry standard you can depend on now and in the future to meet the challenges of 4K and beyond.

"We are very excited to be the first to offer a 50 Gbps switching backplane with our new XTP II line, and the wider range of frames up to 64x64 ensure that each XTP System is the right size for the application," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "To meet today’s requirements as well as the emerging video standards of tomorrow, integrators can feel confident installing an XTP System, knowing that Extron is there to support them at every stage."

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 to send video, audio, bidirectional RS‑232 and IR, and Ethernet up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a shielded CATx cable, and even greater distances over fiber optic cabling. The larger matrix switcher sizes up to 64x64 provide a wide range of possibilities for new applications and system upgrades to support emerging video standards and formats. Designed with an eye toward the future, XTP Systems are known in the industry to offer complete end-to-end AV system solutions of uncompromised quality and performace.
