Anaheim, California (January 25, 2018) - Extron is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new DA HD 4K PLUS Series HDMI distribution amplifiers for signals up to 4K/60 @ 4:4:4 chroma sampling.

They also include integrator-friendly features such as automatic input cable equalization, automatic color bit depth management, and selectable output muting via RS-232. The DA HD 4K PLUS Series distribution amplifiers are available in two, four, and six output sizes, and are ideal for applications that require the distribution of a 4K/60 HDMI source signal to multiple displays.
