Designed for Full Audio System Integration
In addition to video matrix switching and scaling of the DTP outputs, the DTP CrossPoint 82 4K can serve as the central component for full audio system integration. It includes audio switching and breakaway for all eight video sources, four mic/line inputs that can be matrix mixed into any output, as well as HDMI audio embedding and de‑embedding. The DTP CrossPoint 82 4K also provides highly flexible configuration and processing options for the audio inputs and outputs, and for distributing the audio in a system. Each video input, including DTP endpoints, can be accompanied by embedded digital audio or separate analog audio.
Audio from the DTP CrossPoint 82 4K can be output with or without processing, as HDMI embedded audio, two‑channel analog audio, S/PDIF digital audio, or amplified with the matrix switcher’s integrated mono 70 volt or two‑channel stereo power amplifier - MA and SA models. Multi-channel bitstream formats are routed directly to the outputs, without de‑embedding or processing. The DTP CrossPoint 82 4K amplifier-equipped models deliver stereo power amplification with 50 watts rms per channel into 4 ohms or 25 watts rms per channel into 8 ohms, or mono 70 volt amplification with 100 watts rms output. These integrated amplifiers feature an Extron exclusive Class D amplifier design with patented CDRS™ - Class D Ripple Suppression technology that provides a smooth, clean audio waveform and an improvement in signal fidelity over conventional Class D amplifier designs.
ProDSP, Acoustic Echo Cancellation, and Automixer for Complete Audio System Design and Optimization
All DTP CrossPoint 82 4K models feature Extron ProDSP, the same full-featured, high performance audio signal processing found in the Extron DMP 128 and DMP 64 digital signal processors. Extron’s exclusive ProDSP is engineered from the ground up using a powerful 64‑bit floating point DSP engine to provide very wide dynamic range and reduce the potential for clipping. ProDSP also utilizes studio grade 24‑bit audio converters with 48 kHz sampling to maintain audio signal transparency. ProDSP is loaded with a comprehensive selection of powerful, easy‑to‑configure tools to control level, dynamics, filters, delay, ducking, loudness, and feedback suppression.
Truly professional grade DSP allows full audio system design, precise optimization and fine tuning, and proper gain structure. The four mic/line inputs can be matrix mixed into any of the eight stereo output buses to create finely tuned audio zones for the corresponding outputs. In addition, these inputs can be routed to any of the eight “virtual” buses to allow inputs to be processed together as a group, before routing into the output buses. If desired, mic/line input signals can be mixed with the signal processing bypassed. The flexible routing and mixing capabilities of the DTP CrossPoint 82 4K allow system designers to create simple or complex signal management schemes to accommodate a wide variety of system application requirements.
The DTP CrossPoint 82 4K includes four independent channels of high performance AEC - acoustic echo cancellation, as well as selectable noise cancellation, for conferencing applications. AEC is essential for effective remote room-to-room conversations, ensuring clear, natural sounding communication for all participants. Extron AEC features advanced algorithms that deliver fast echo canceler convergence for optimal intelligibility, even in challenging conditions such as double-talk when talkers from both ends are speaking simultaneously, or when near end talkers use wireless microphones. The DTP CrossPoint 82 4K also features an automixer with gated and gain sharing modes for managing up to eight groups of microphone signals. This allows for fine-tuning to avoid the “chopped” sound characteristic of a traditional automixer when a mic is gated off. For a natural sounding mic mix, the automixer also offers a gain sharing mode when the NOM - number of open microphones is bypassed, allowing all mics to gate on.
Setup and optimization is easy with the intuitive DSP Configurator™ Software. The flexible on‑screen layout offers fast access to all digital audio signal processing tools, as well as AEC and noise cancellation settings for the DTP CrossPoint 82 4K. This includes level control, dynamics, filters, delay, ducking, loudness, feedback suppression, and matrix mixing, as well as real-time metering for ERL - echo return loss, ERLE - echo return loss enhancement, and TER - total echo reduction levels.
Integrate with Extron Audio Processors for Larger Systems
An Extron digital audio expansion port is included on all DTP CrossPoint 82 4K models for interfacing with an Extron DMP 128 Digital Matrix Processor. This allows a 16x16 I/O channel transport between devices, and the DMP 128 provides an additional 12 inputs and eight outputs for microphones, multiple speaker zones, assistive listening, and more. A linked DMP 128 also offers additional capabilities such as POTS analog phone interfacing with the DMP 128 C P. Many unique and scalable system designs are possible when linking a DTP CrossPoint 82 4K to a DMP 128 AT in a Dante™ network. As an example, this can be ideal for supporting a large number of microphones in a city council meeting chamber, or in a lecture hall for distance learning.
