Extron Electronics is releasing the XTP R HWP 201, a Decora-style wallplate receiver for XTP Systems. It features a Extron-exclusive design specifically to handle the space constraints behind wall-mounted displays. The HDMI output connector is oriented upward at a 90° angle, which minimizes stress on the cable and allows for a low-profile flat panel display installation. This HDCP-compliant receiver accepts XTP signals from up to 330 feet (100 meters) away over a single shielded CATx cable and outputs video, audio, control, and Ethernet to the display. It also provides HDMI audio de-embedding with analog stereo audio output and volume control. For simplified integration, the wallplate receiver can be remotely

"We recognize that AV system designers and integrators are constantly being asked to close the gap between the wall and a flat panel display for aesthetic and security reasons," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The XTP R HWP 201 gives them the discreet, reliable, and easy to integrate solution they've been waiting for."
The XTP R HWP 201 supports video signals up to 1920x1200, including 1080p/60 Deep Color and 2K. In addition to HDMI video, it delivers embedded digital audio signals or can de-embed the audio for two-channel balanced/unbalanced analog stereo audio output. Integrator-friendly features include EDID Minder for continuous EDID communication between devices, Key Minder that authenticates and maintains HDCP encryption for quick and reliable transmission, a convenient cable tie-down point to ensure a secure and reliable HDMI connection, along with LAN and bidirectional control ports for the display. An RS-232 and IR insertion port on the front panel of the XTP R HWP 201 allows bidirectional control to further simplify integration with a control system for managing the display.
