The Extron SW HD 4K PLUS Series of two, four, six, and eight-input HDMI switchers support 4K/60 with 4:4:4 Colour sampling. They are designed for video signal switching between multiple HDMI sources to a single display. The switchers are HDCP compliant, and support data rates up to 18 Gbps, HDR, 12-bit Deep Color, 3D, and HD lossless audio formats. The SW HD 4K PLUS Series is easy to operate using front panel controls or auto-switching. Ethernet, RS-232, and contact closure ports provide ample options for integration with any control system. All models feature EDID Minder®, which maintains continuous EDID communication with connected devices and ensures that the HDMI sources power up and maintain video output. The switchers provide automatic input cable equalization up to 25 feet (7.6 meters) on Extron HDMI Pro Series cable.
To enhance and simplify integration, the SW HD 4K PLUS Series provides integrator-friendly features, including automatic input cable equalization, automatic Colour bit depth management, indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as peripheral device power on the output. Automatic input cable equalization corrects for signal loss due to lengthy input cables, ensuring signal integrity up to 25 feet (7.6 meters), when used with Extron HDMI Pro Series cable. The SW HD 4K PLUS Series automatically adjusts Colour bit depth based on the display EDID, preventing Colour compatibility conflicts between source and display. Front panel LED indicators provide immediate visual confirmation of HDCP authentication and signal presence for each input and output. If HDCP‑encrypted content is transmitted to a non‑compliant display, a full-screen green signal provides immediate visual confirmation that protected content cannot be viewed on that display. The SW HD 4K PLUS Series also provides +5 VDC, 250 mA on the HDMI output for powering peripheral devices such as an Extron HD 4K 101 Plus cable equalizer.
The SW HD 4K PLUS Series two and four‑input models are housed in 1U, half rack width enclosures that are suitable for mounting in a rack or under a table. The six and eight‑input models are housed in 1U, full rack width enclosures and come standard with brackets for mounting in a rack.
