Extron Says its ‘DSC 301 HD’ Video Scaler Is Available

Scaler offers HDMI input/outputs, a configurable high-resolution analog input and a composite video input

Extron Electronics says its compact DSC 301 HD video scaler, offering HDMI input/outputs, a configurable high-resolution analog input and a composite video input, is available.
The DSC 301 HD is HDCP-compliant and it features an advanced scaling engine with 30-bit processing and 1080i deinterlacing, delivering output resolutions up to 1920 x 1200, including 1080p and 2K, Extron says.
The scaler includes EDID Minder, automatic input switching and it simplifies system connections by embedding audio from one of the three stereo inputs onto the HDMI output, the company says.
“The DSC 301 HD delivers high performance and a compelling feature set,” says Casey Hall, Extron’s vice president of sales and marketing. “With its compact form factor and integrator-friendly features, this scaler lends itself to basic conference room applications as well as more complex systems where multiple scalers are deployed into a large signal distribution system,” he says.
In addition, the DSC 301 HD offers several features that enhance and simplify AV system setup and operation, Extron says. For HDMI signals with protected content, “Key Minder” authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input sources and displays to ensure quick and reliable switching, the company says.
Congruently, EDID Minder ensures the display’s capabilities are communicated to connected video sources to obtain an optimal image, Extron says. Front panel controls, intuitive on-screen menus, plus USB and RS-232 connections provide flexible control and monitoring capability, the company says.
