Anaheim, California (August 11, 2008) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce a new range of HDCP -compliant HDMI and DVI matrix boards for the SMX System MultiMatrix, Extron's modular, field -configurable matrix switching platform. These new matrix boards, available in I/O sizes from 4x4 to 8x8, bring the total number of SMX matrix boards to 35, covering all common analog and digital A/V signal types from composite video and wideband RGB to 3G -SDI, DVI, and HDMI, as well as stereo audio. The SMX System MultiMatrix is ideal for use in a wide variety of residential entertainment and media distribution applications where multiple signal types, such as high -definition and standard definition video, computer -video from game consoles or media center PCs, and stereo audio, must be routed to different rooms or zones.


"We designed the SMX system to be a highly adaptable platform for current and emerging A/V signal routing technologies," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron. "As new signal types enter the residential market, they can be easily incorporated into a previously -installed SMX frame with virtually no disruption to system operation."

The SMX HDMI Series Matrix Switcher Boards are designed for routing HDMI video signals with embedded audio and control signals. They support computer video to 1920x1200 and HDTV to 1080p at data rates up to 1.65 Gbps. SMX HDMI matrix boards are HDCP -compliant and, like the SMX DVI and DVI Pro matrix boards, provide +5 VDC, 250 mA of power on each output for external peripheral devices. They are available in four I/O sizes: 4x4, 4x8, 8x4, and 8x8.

The SMX DVI Pro Series Matrix Switcher Boards are designed for routing single link DVI -D video signals with HDCP - High -bandwidth Digital Content Protection to one or more displays. These HDCP -compliant matrix boards support computer video to 1920x1200 and HDTV to 1080p, and provide +5 VDC, 250 mA of power on each output for external peripheral devices. They are available in four I/O sizes: 4x4, 4x8, 8x4, and 8x8.
