ANAHEIM, Calif. —Extron Electronics recently introduced the DSC HD-HD, a compact high-performance, HDCP-compliant scaler that converts among HDMI resolutions and frame rates. The unit accepts video from 480i up to 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, 1080p and 2K, and offers upscaling and downscaling with multiple output rates up to 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, including HDTV 1080p/60 and 2K.
The DSC HD-HD features video signal processing with 1080i deinterlacing and deep color processing for improved image quality. It includes many integrator-friendly features such as on-screen display, test patterns and EDID Minder.
The DSC HD-HD is targeted at applications that require scaling HDMI video to match the different capabilities and requirements of sources, displays, videoconferencing codecs and other equipment. The compact form factor allows simple integration at a source, destination, or in a distribution system.
“AV integrators often need a simple solution for matching different HDMI video resolutions in professional AV systems,” said Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron. “The DSC HD-HD includes a powerful scaling engine and video processing capabilities that ensure consistent, reliable HDMI cross conversion with great picture quality, plus EDID management in a low profile enclosure that saves valuable rack space.”
The DSC HD-HD offers several features that enhance and simplify AV system integration. EDID Minder automatically manages EDID communication between the source and display to ensure reliable operation. Easily accessible on-screen menus provide control over the unit’s functions and settings, including quick access to key parameters such as input and output video formats and resolutions.
