Extron has announced that its XTP II CrossPoint Series officially supports the recently announced HDMI 2.1 specification, as well as DisplayPort 1.4. When Extron introduced the XTP II CrossPoint Series in 2015, its 50Gbps digital backplane represented a leap in engineering and product design. XTP II already supports the HDMI 2.1 specification’s range of higher video resolutions and refresh rates, including 8K @ 60Hz and 4K @ 120Hz with HDR. XTP II frames are the only AV switching platform that supports the 48Gbps data rate of HDMI 2.1.
“The XTP II platform was developed to anticipate advancements in technology, such as the ultra-high resolutions and increased data rates specified by HDMI 2.1,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “XTP II CrossPoint frames ensure the core of the AV systems installed today can stay in place as the rest of the installation evolves.”
XTP II CrossPoint matrix switchers are engineered to exceed the bandwidth required by HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 signals. Three modular frames are available for 16×16, 32×32, and 64×64 I/O configurations, and feature EverLast power supplies engineered by Extron.
