Extron Electronics announced the availability of the DVS 510, a 10-input, multiformat presentation scaling switcher that accepts and scales standard definition, HDTV, DVI, and RGB signals to a common, high-resolution output rate. The DVS 510 is HDCP-compliant and features simultaneous DVI and two analog RGB/YUV outputs. It is a true presentation switcher for professional environments, according to the company, with audio switching for all video input sources, an available 50W stereo integrated amplifier, picture-in-picture, and glitch-free switching. The DVS 510 also offers flexible control options including front-panel control, Ethernet, RS-232, USB, and IR.
"The DVS 510 is ideal for larger presentation environments where several AV source devices need to be integrated, including HDCP-compliant products such as Blu-ray Disc players and cable or satellite receivers," said Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron, in a statement. "It delivers high-performance video and graphics processing, plus all the essential features for streamlining integration and delivering professional-quality AV presentations."
The DVS 510 includes a 30-bit scaling engine with the ability to scale standard definition video, HDTV, and RGB signals up or down in resolution. It accepts computer-video signals up to 1920x1200 and HDTV 1080p/60, and outputs DVI and analog RGB or component video at selectable output rates up to 1920x1200 resolution, as well as HDTV up to 1080p/60.
The DVS 510 is available with two audio output variations, including the standard DVS 510 with fixed and variable line-level outputs, and the DVS 510 SA, which adds a stereo integrated amplifier with 25W rms output per channel into 4 or 8 ohms. The DVS 510 SA has an Extron-exclusive, efficient, Class-D amplifier design with patented Class D Ripple Suppression technology that provides a smooth, clean audio waveform and an improvement in signal fidelity over conventional Class D amplifier designs.
For more effective, professional presentations, the DVS 510 includes glitch-free switching between video and high resolution inputs with selectable cut or fade to black transitions, according to the company. The DVS 510 also features a PIP picture-in-picture mode that allows a video source and a high resolution source to be shown on one display. Several PIP presets are available, including side-by-side windows, and the PIP window can be dynamically sized and positioned anywhere in the image.
