Dante is a key player in the Extron XTP II CrossPoint Series, offering a range of modular matrix switchers with HDCP 2.3 compliant outputs, including the XTP II CP 4o HD AT 8K, which supports uncompressed 8K HDMI video and Dante audio.
Extron XTP II CrossPoint Series modular matrix switchers feature a 50 Gbps backplane to deliver a future-proof AV infrastructure that supports convenient growth and upgrade without needing to replace equipment. The newest board to join the XTP Systems family is the XTP II CP 4o HD AT 8K, an XTP output board with four HDMI and four Dante® digital audio outputs. It is HDCP 2.3 compliant and supports HDMI 2.1 performance at video resolutions up to 8K/30 HDR video with 4:4:4 color sampling at data rates up to 40.1 Gbps. Dante output adds the capability to take any four stereo audio signals that are routed through the XTP® system and transport them as Dante audio over a network using standard Internet protocols. This XTP output board supports convenient integration as part of a complete networked audio system solution.
“As transmission over networks increase in popularity, our customers are looking to support uncompressed 8K HDMI video plus Dante audio in one switching system,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. “XTP now supports 8K HDMI and Dante audio with our new XTP II CP 8K output board, facilitating convenient system expansion with our complete line of Dante-enabled audio processing products.”
