Extron this week launched the HDMI DA2, a one-input, two-output distribution amplifier for HDMI video and embedded multi-channel digital audio. The HDMI DA2 supports HDMI at 6.75 Gbps, Deep Color up to 12-bit, 3D, Lip Sync and HD lossless audio formats. This HDCP-compliant distribution amplifier supports all HDTV rates including 1080p/60 and PC resolutions up to 1920×1200. It features two Extron-exclusive technologies: EDID Minder, which maintains continuous EDID communication between connected devices; and Key Minder, which authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices.
Features of the HDMI DA2 include automatic input cable equalization, automatic bit depth management, selectable output muting and indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting. Input cable equalization restores and reshapes incoming HDMI signals, reducing the need for additional signal conditioning equipment by compensating for weak source signals or signal loss from a long input cable.
