Extron Game Changer - All-in-one AV System

Extron has recently released the DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP, which is a All-in-one 8x4 matrix switcher, scaler, audio DSP, audio power amplifier, and control processor. 

There are similar competitive products around, but the game changer for me, is the price point that Extron are bringing this to market. Similarly specified components systems are at least double the price of the DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP. 

 The matrix switcher offers regular HDMI and HDMI over CAT6 inputs and outputs, for Extron DTP and XTP products. The outputs have an additional HDBaseT option for Flat Panel Displays and Projectors with HDBaseT inputs. 

Add a touchpanel, Connection Panel/s, display/s and speakers and you have a very good AV system for almost any Boardroom, Training or Video Conference Room. 

 The only thing missing on this device, is analog display inputs. Fortunately Extron have a wide variety of scaler switcher to cater for this. 

 Can't wait to specify these in our AV systems.
