Extron Announces Two Output HDMI Distribution Amplifier

Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the HDMI DA2, a one input, two output distribution amplifier for HDMI video and embedded multi-channel digital audio. The HDMI DA2 supports HDMI specification features including data rates up to 6.75 Gbps, Deep Color up to 12-bit, 3D, Lip Sync, and HD lossless audio formats. This HDCP-compliant distribution amplifier supports all HDTV rates including 1080p/60 and PC resolutions up to 1920×1200. It features two Extron-exclusive technologies: EDID Minder®, which maintains continuous EDID communication between connected devices; and Key Minder®, which authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices. The compact HDMI DA2 is ideal for applications that require the distribution of an HDMI source signal to two displays.

“AV system designers and integrators have been asking for a distribution amplifier that not only splits an HDMI signal but manages communication between the source and the displays,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “The latest addition to our growing line of HDMI products, the HDMI DA2 with EDID Minder, fills their need for a reliable, high performance HDMI distribution amplifier, and offers a host of integrator-friendly features.”

To enhance and simplify integration, the HDMI DA2 offers integrator-friendly features, including automatic input cable equalization, automatic bit depth management, selectable output muting, and indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting. Input cable equalization restores and reshapes incoming HDMI signals, reducing the need for additional signal conditioning equipment by compensating for weak source signals or signal loss from a long input cable. The HDMI DA2 automatically adjusts color bit depth based on the display EDID, preventing color compatibility conflicts between source and display. Outputs can be muted independently via RS-232, allowing content to be previewed on a local monitor. Additionally, the distribution amplifier provides immediate visual confirmation of EDID status, HDCP authentication, and signal presence confirmation for each port via front panel LED indicators.
