Anaheim, California (May 16, 2018) - Extron is pleased to introduce the new IN1804, a series of compact four-input scalers that provide state-of-the-art video scaling, switching and integration features that set a new benchmark standard for the industry. They support HDMI 2.0b data rates up to 18 Gbps and incorporate the Extron-exclusive Vector 4K scaling engine with 4:4:4 chroma sampling and 30-bit internal video processing for best-in-class image quality. Offering a host of features including seamless switching effects, logo keying, still image recall, and optional twisted pair input / output capability, the IN1804 Series scalers provide the performance and flexibility to support the most demanding presentation environments.

“The IN1804 Series sets the bar for 4K/60 4:4:4 switching and scaling with uncompromised image quality and advanced features,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “These next generation scalers deliver the highest performance for the most demanding applications and give customers flexibility in addressing a wide variety of system designs.”

Two available IN1804 models provide signal extension over shielded twisted pair cable. The IN1804 DI includes a DTP2 twisted pair input that can receive signals from remote DTP and DTP2 transmitters mounted at a conference table, lectern or wall. The IN1804 DO has a DTP2 twisted pair output that can send signals to a DTP or DTP2 receiver mounted behind a flat panel display, above a ceiling mounted projector, or in other remote locations. DTP transmitters and receivers are available in compact, low-profile enclosures, plus wallplate and floorbox form factors to suit a range of professional environments.

In addition to supporting DTP endpoints, the IN1804 DI and IN1804 DO can be integrated into an XTP CrossPoint matrix switcher system. This is ideal for facility-wide AV system applications with a centralized AV signal distribution infrastructure, as well as several presentation spaces with local AV switching and processing. An IN1804 DI in a room can connect into an XTP CrossPoint matrix switcher in a central equipment rack or closet to receive shared AV resources, or a connected IN1804 DO can distribute a local presentation to several destinations in a facility.
