The XPA U 1004 SB and XPA U 2002 SB feature Extron's Class-D amplifier design with defeatable auto standby
Extron has introduced its XPA U 1004 SB and XPA U 2002 SB, Energy Star-qualified audio power amplifiers which feature flexible channel pairs that can drive 8Ω, 4Ω, 70V or 100V loads. The individually bridgeable channel pairs of the XPA U 1004 SB can deliver two 100W channels into low-impedance systems or one 200W channel into low- or high-impedance systems, while the XPA U 2002 SB delivers 200W and 400W, respectively. A rotary switch on the rear panel of the amplifier is said to make it quick and easy to select the desired output mode. The convection-cooled, plenum-rated enclosures do not require empty rack spaces for ventilation and include rackmount hardware. Both models feature Extron's Class-D amplifier design with defeatable auto standby, fast wake up from standby and its patented Class-D Ripple Suppression. XPA Ultra SB models also support remote volume and mute control using an Extron VCM, VC or select MediaLink controllers.
The ISS 608, meanwhile, is an eight-input seamless switcher for the dynamic presentation and scaling of DisplayPort and HDMI content at resolutions up to 4K/60 @ 4:4:4 at a maximum data rate of 18Gbps. Features include Extron Vector 4K scaling technology and multiple transition effects, as well as logo insertion, video keying and PIP to complement primary content. For streamlined integration, the switcher provides audio management and multiple control options, including RS-232 and Ethernet. Matrix Mode is said to add automatic, seamless transitions to any matrix switcher with HDMI outputs.
