Extron’s XTP II CrossPoint Series is currently the only AV technology platform in the industry to support the recently announced HDMI 2.1 specification, as well as DisplayPort 1.4. Extron says that it’s because of its 50 Gbps digital backplane — so no upgrades of existing installs are required. The XTP II already supports the HDMI 2.1 specification’s range of higher video resolutions and refresh rates, including 8K@60 Hz and 4K@120 Hz with HDR. Extron also says that the XTP II frames are the only AV switching platform that supports the 48 Gbps data rate of HDMI 2.1 — meaning that it can even be used with 8K in the future.
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 Extron’s EverLast power supplies.
