“The DTP2 CrossPoint 82 delivers the highest level of performance and capability in the industry for this category,” said Casey Hall, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Extron. “The combination of market-leading video and audio processing technologies, plus its secure control capabilities, gives designers and integrators a versatile solution that can be applied to a wide range of designs.”
The DTP2 CrossPoint 82 delivers all the core functionality of a conventional AV system, in a single enclosure that replaces as many as ten separate components. In addition to saving substantial space in a rack, the compact enclosure makes it easier to standardize on a common system design throughout a facility, and to adapt this DTP2 CrossPoint matrix switcher to many different environments where equipment space may be limited.
The Bottom Line: This fully featured presentation matrix switcher is designed for versatility and is well suited for presentations with content on multiple displays, and for providing a variety of AV system configurations to serve multi-purpose and divisible rooms.
