Extron recently debuted their new FOX T USW 103, a three-input switcher with an integrated fiber optic transmitter for long haul transmission of HDCP-compliant HDMI, RGBHV or HD component video, plus stereo audio and RS-232 control signals over fiber optic cabling. Extron says this three-input switcher uses all-digital technology to provide pixel-for-pixel performance with signals up to 1920×1200, including HDTV 1080p/60.
Analog AV input signals are digitized to ensure that a high quality signal is transmitted to the final destination. To streamline installation and system operation, the FOX T USW 103 includes integration-friendly features such as EDID Minder, Key Minder, audio embedding, auto-input switching, RS-232 control and real-time system monitoring. The compact, low profile FOX T USW 103 allows for discreet installation such as beneath a table or in a lectern.
As part of the line of FOX Series fiber optic products from Extron, the FOX T USW 103 is compatible with FOX Series HDMI, DVI Plus, DVI and VGA receivers. This transmitter can also be used in combination with FOX Series matrix switchers for HDCP-compliant signal distribution systems up to 1000×1000 and larger. To ensure system operability, EDID Minder manages EDID communication between sources and destinations, and Key Minder continuously authenticates HDCP encryption.
