New Larger HDMI Switchers for 4K Video

Publish date:

Anaheim, California (September 19, 2017) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce two larger models to the SW HD 4K Series of switchers for HDMI signals. The SW6 HD 4K and SW8 HD 4K provide six or eight HDMI inputs. Both switchers support video signals at resolutions up to 4K, as well as data rates up to 10.2 Gbps, 3D, Lip Sync, and HD lossless audio formats. They feature Extron EDID Minder technology, which maintains continuous EDID communication with connected devices and ensures that the HDMI sources power up properly and maintain correct video output.

"The Extron SW HD 4K switchers are a favorite among AV integrators, and many have asked for the same robust feature set in larger sizes," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The new SW6 HD 4K and SW8 HD 4K provides reliable signal switching for larger system designs, while maintaining the same ease of setup and installation as the two- and four-input switchers."

To enhance and simplify integration, the SW HD 4K Series switchers provide automatic input cable equalization up to 50 feet when used with Extron HDMI Pro Series cable, automatic color bit depth management, indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as peripheral device power on the HDMI output. The SW HD 4K Series switchers offer front panel, RS‑232, IR, contact closure, and auto-input switching control options for integration into a wide variety of environments.
