Extron Premieres New Universal Signal Processor

USP 507Anaheim, California (June 17, 2009)- Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the USP 507, a Universal Signal Processor that provides video scaling, transcoding, as well as analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog video conversion in a single product. The new USP 507 features a seven input switcher that supports all common analog and digital video formats, from composite video to DVI, RGBHV and optional SDI/HD-SDI. Advanced video processing automatically detects the input video format and applies high performance scaling. Two RGBHV outputs are standard, plus an Extron MTP Twisted Pair output that significantly enhances integration flexibility. In addition, optional output boards are available for scan-converted video, DVI, and HD-SDI. The USP 507 is ideal for applications that require universal compatibility to accept any input video format and produce high quality video for display.

"The integration of analog and digital sources within a single system design is one of the everyday challenges faced by A/V integrators," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron. "The USP 507, a major update to our popular USP 405, provides a simple, cost-effective solution for these mixed-signal applications, with the signal conversion and advanced image processing for which Extron is best known"

The USP 507 features a high performance 30-bit scaling engine with the ability to scale standard definition, high definition, and computer-video signals up or down in resolution. It accepts computer-video signals up to 1920×1200 and HDTV 1080p/60, and outputs RGB or component video at 81 selectable output rates up to 1920×1200, as well as HDTV 1080p/60. For increased system flexibility, the USP 507 offers up to four simultaneous outputs, including two RGBHV or component video outputs, Extron MTP Twisted Pair output, and an optional output that can be ordered as DVI, HD-SDI, or scan-converted video.

For more effective, professional presentations, the USP 507 includes glitch-free switching between video and RGB inputs with selectable cut or fade to black transitions. The USP 507 also features a PIP picture-in-picture mode that allows a video source and an RGB source to be shown on one display. Front panel controls are provided for quick access to functions. Remote configuration and control are available via RS-232 serial control and IP Link® Ethernet Control. An RS-232 serial loop-through port is also provided, so that commands from a control system can be passed on to an Extron audio switcher.
