Inputs: One HDMI; one DisplayPort; one universal 15-pin HD input for RGB, component video, S-video, or composite video
Outputs: Two HDMI, one DTP twisted pair output on RJ-45
Integrated three-input switcher with HDMI, DisplayPort, and universal Analogue video inputs - The Annotator 300 delivers fast, reliable input switching between HDMI, DisplayPort, and Analogue video sources. The universal auto-detecting Analogue video input automatically detects incoming RGB, component video, S-video, or composite video.
Three simultaneous video outputs - One DTP twisted pair output and two HDMI outputs are available for driving three displays.
Integrated DTP output supports transmission of HDMI with embedded audio and control up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a shielded CATx cable - The DTP output supports digital signal transmission of HDMI with embedded audio and control up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a shielded CATx cable, providing high reliability and maximum performance on an easily installed cable infrastructure.
Intuitive graphical annotation interface - A user-friendly on-screen display enables quick and easy annotation. Essential annotation tools are available for drawing freehand or lines, adding rectangular or elliptical shapes, typing text, highlighting an area of an image, pointing to an object on-screen, and using the screen as a whiteboard. Customization options are available for text and graphics, including point size and color.
Hardware-based graphics and video processing - The Annotator 300 features a fully hardware-based system architecture designed to deliver the performance and operational reliability essential for mission-critical applications.
Compatible with popular touch displays and graphics tablets - The Annotator 300 supports a wide variety of touch displays and graphics tablets from third-party manufacturers, and also can be used with a standard keyboard and mouse.
Capture and store images to a USB flash drive, internal memory, or a network location, plus the ability to recall annotated images - An image can be captured as a snapshot of the live video output, including annotations, and saved to internal memory, a removable USB flash drive, or a network location for archiving.
Print captured images using a network printer - The Annotator 300 supports connection to a printer on the network, enabling captured images to be sent directly to the printer without connecting to a PC.
Configurable Main and Confidence outputs - The outputs can be configured as separate Main and Confidence outputs with individually controlled visibility of annotation and OSD graphics.
HDCP compliant - Fully supports HDCP-encrypted sources, with selectable authorization for unencrypted content.
Supported HDMI specification features include data rates up to 6.75 Gbps, Deep Color, and HD lossless audio formats
Supports DisplayPort input signals at resolutions up to 2560x1600
Compatible with CATx shielded twisted pair cable - The Annotator 300 fully supports a maximum transmission distance of 330 feet (100 meters) for all compatible resolutions when used with CATx shielded twisted pair cable. Shielded twisted pair cabling with solid centre conductor sizes of 24 AWG or better is recommended for optimal performance.
Extron XTP DTP 24 shielded twisted pair cable is strongly recommended for optimal performance
Bidirectional RS-232 and IR pass-through for AV device control - Bidirectional RS-232 control and IR signals can be transmitted alongside the video signal over the DTP connection, allowing the remote device to be controlled without the need for additional cabling. Bidirectional control extension eliminates the need for control system wiring to remote devices.
Remote powering of DTP receiver - The Annotator 300 can provide remote power to a DTP receiver over the twisted pair connection, eliminating the need for a separate power supply at the remote unit.
Compatible with all DTP 230 and DTP 330 Series receivers, and DTP-enabled products - Enables mixing and matching with desktop and wallplate receivers, as well as other DTP-enabled products to meet application requirements.
DTP output is compatible with HDBaseT-enabled devices - The DTP output can be configured to send video and embedded audio, plus bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals to an HDBaseT-enabled display.
Auto-switching between inputs - Auto-switching allows for simple, unmanaged installation in locations such as in a lectern or under a conference table. When multiple inputs are active, the switching priority is configurable.
Auto Input Format Detection - For the universal Analogue video input, the Annotator 300 detects the incoming signal format, automatically reconfiguring itself to provide the appropriate decoding and signal processing. This feature can reduce the number of required outputs for a matrix switcher, lowering system cost while improving manageability.
Selectable output rates from 640x480 to 1920x1200, including HDTV 1080p/60 and 2K - Available output rates include computer video up to 1920x1200, HDTV rates up to 1080p/60, and 2K.
Advanced scaling engine with 30-bit processing and 1080i deinterlacing - Image scaling and video format conversion are performed at 30-bit precision for enhanced Colour accuracy and picture detail. High performance deinterlacing of 1080i signals from HD sources delivers optimized image quality.
Key Minder® continuously verifies HDCP compliance for quick, reliable switching - Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching in professional AV environments, while enabling simultaneous distribution of a single source signal to one or more displays.
EDID Minder® automatically manages EDID communication between connected devices - EDID Minder ensures that all sources power up properly and reliably output content for display.
SpeedSwitch® Technology provides exceptional switching speed for HDCP-encrypted content
Aspect ratio control - The aspect ratio of the video output can be controlled by selecting a FILL mode, which provides a full screen output, or a FOLLOW mode, which preserves the original aspect ratio of the input signal.
HDCP authentication and signal presence confirmation - Provides real-time verification of HDCP status for each digital video input and output. This allows for easy signal and HDCP verification through RS-232 or Ethernet, providing valuable feedback to a system operator or helpdesk support staff.
HDCP Visual Confirmation provides a green signal when encrypted content is sent to a non-compliant display - A full-screen green signal is sent when HDCP-encrypted content is transmitted to a non-HDCP compliant display, providing immediate visual confirmation that protected content cannot be viewed on the display.
HDMI to DVI Interface Format Correction - Automatically enables or disables embedded audio and InfoFrames, and sets the correct Colour space for proper connection to HDMI and DVI displays.
Seamless switching - Seamless cut through black and fade through black transition effects are available to enhance presentations by eliminating distractions during switching.
Auto-Image™ setup - When activated, the unit automatically optimizes the image by analyzing and adjusting to the video input signal. This can save time and effort in setting up a newly connected source, particularly in presentation environments where different guest presenter laptops with various output resolutions will be connected.
Auto Input Memory - When activated, the unit automatically stores size, position, and picture settings based on the incoming signal. When the same signal is detected again, these image settings are automatically recalled from memory.
Output Standby Mode - The unit can be set to automatically mute video and sync output to the display device when no active input signal is detected. This allows the projector or flat-panel display to automatically enter into standby mode to save energy and enhance lamp or panel life.
Power Save Mode - The unit can be placed in a low power standby state to conserve energy when not in use.
AFL™ - Accu-RATE Frame Lock - A patented technology exclusive to Extron that locks the output frame rate to a designated input to eliminate stuttering caused by frame rate conversion.
