A complete AV distribution platform with unmatched performance and powerful integration features that streamline system design and integration. XTP Systems easily scale from small to large applications without additional complexity. They are completely integrated switching and distribution systems for digital video and audio, supporting local AV connectivity as well as remote devices over shielded CATx and fiber optic cable. XTP Systems is the definitive AV industry standard you can depend on now and to meet the challenges of an 8K future.
XTP II CrossPoint Series
AV Infrastructure for an 8K Future
The Extron XTP II CrossPoint modular matrix switchers are the first in the AV industry to offer a 50 Gbps digital switching backplane. Representating a monumental leap in engineering and product design, XTP II lets you design and deploy AV systems with switching bandwidth that exceeds the data rate required to distribute 4K/60 video with 4:4:4 chrome sampling at 16 bits per color.
The XTP II CrossPoint is the only AV technology platform that supports uncompressed 4K video while providing additional bandwidth to accommodate anticipated video resolutions and formats, such as 8K. These matrix switchers can be configured with a variety of input and output boards to support 4K/60 HDMI, DVI, and SDI, plus 4K signal extension over twisted pair and fiber optic cable.
Modular Frame Design
XTP Systems provide a modular, field-upgradeable, and hot-swappable design. The wide selection of input and output boards provide a completely integrated local and remote signal switching and distribution solution for maximizing AV system integration. The XTP II CrossPoint Matrix is available in three configurable I/O sizes, 16x16, 32x32, and 64x64.
Wide Selection I/O Boards
To streamline integration, a full selection of XTP® input and output boards offer local connectivity and extended transmission capability using a single CATx or fiber optic cable. Each input and output board supports four sources or display connections.

XTP CrossPoint Output Boards
Local I/O to Support HDMI 2.0b
HDMI 2.0b I/O boards with HDCP 2.2 deliver 18 Gbps throughput for HDR support and switching 4K/60 with 4:4:4 chroma sampling at 8 bits per color. For enhanced design versatility, the XTP II CP 4i HD DMA 4K PLUS input board features multi-channel audio downmixing and stereo audio connectivity. Multi-channel audio signals are maintained for HDMI switching and downmixed to two-channel PCM audio for independent routing within the system. The XTP II CP 4o HD AT 4K PLUS output board provides Dante digital audio output. This output board enables audio transport of up to four stereo audio signals over a network using standard Internet protocols.
Beyond switching local HDMI, SDI, DVI, VGA, video and audio signals, XTP Systems offers 4K twisted pair and fiber I/O boards for extension of video, audio, bidirectional control, and Ethernet up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a shielded twisted pair cable and up to 500 meters (1,640 feet) over OM4 multimode fiber optic cable and up to 10 km (6.21 miles) when using singlemode cable.
4K Twisted Pair and Fiber Optic Switching and Transmission
Twisted pair and fiber optic I/O boards and endpoints deliver end-to-end capability for extending 4K video along with audio, control, and Ethernet over a single cable. HDCP 2.2 compliant, XTP 4K Twisted Pair supports signal transmission up to 330 feet (100 meters) and remote powering of endpoints.
XTP 4K Fiber offers a completely integrated solution that incorporates Extron-exclusive, custom designed optical modules. These XTP 4K Fiber products provide increased distance performance up to 500 meters (1,640 feet) over OM4 multimode fiber optic cable and up to 10 km (6.21 miles) when using singlemode cable.
Audio Signal Routing and Management
XTP Systems provide easy integration of analog audio alongside digital embedded signals and offers extensive signal routing and management options. Two separate audio switching planes gives increased flexibility to deliver audio breakaway, digital audio de-embedding, multi-channel audio routing and downmixing, and analog stereo audio embedding without requiring additional components. HDMI, Dante, and stereo audio outputs provide convenient connectivity to the sound reinforcement system. The XTP II CP 4o HD AT 4K PLUS Dante output board adds the capability to take any four stereo audio signals that are routed through the XTP system and transport them as Dante audio. Transmission is over a network using standard Internet protocols. This XTP output board also supports AES67, along with Audinate® Dante Controller and Dante Domain Manager software.
Vector 4K Scaling Technology
The Vector 4K scaling engine incorporates Extron-engineered, multi-tap, bicubic interpolation, which creates a new pixel by averaging adjacent pixels above, below, to the sides, and diagonally of the new pixel. This produces sharp, accurate output, preserving single-pixel detail that other scaling methods lack.
Vector 4K algorithms continually and dynamically adapt, ensuring optimal processing for upscaling, downscaling, or 1:1 pass-through applications. Two less robust alternatives to bicubic interpolation are “nearest neighbor interpolation,” whereby a pixel is duplicated to an adjacent pixel, and “bilinear interpolation”, which creates a new pixel by averaging adjacent pixels above, below, and to the sides of the pixel being created. Both of these methods can produce substandard output, resulting in data loss that may render the content unusable.
Reliability and Performance by Design
Designed and engineered to the highest standards, the 50 Gbps backplane delivers bandwidth performance that exceeds HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 signal requirements for all 4K/60 rates and gives future support for emerging resolutions such as 8K.

We design and manufacture our Everlast Power Supplies in-house, employing premium-quality components and highly efficient, modern topologies for thermal management, transistor switching, energy dissipation, and virtually every other critical aspect of the power system. Each Everlast Power Supply is built with the same care and meticulous attention to detail as our award-winning high-end video products.
Demonstrated Reliability. Proven Performance.
Typical AV power supplies have an average MTBF, Mean Time Between Failure, rating of around 30,000 hours, calculated by using the stated specifications of the individual components.
To ensure that our Everlast power supplies meet Extron standards of performance and quality, we subjected each model of our PS Desktop Series to actual, not calculated, accelerated operation life testing, using a heat chamber at an ambient temperature of 85°C. The power supplies were operated under load for over 2 years. Under these grueling conditions, each hour in the heat chamber is like 64 hours in the real world.
Based on this actual accelerated operational life testing, we achieved MTBF benchmarks of 280,000 hours up to an incredible 1,000,000 hours, or the equivalent of over 114 years, depending on the model. We know of no other company that has gone to such lengths to guarantee power supply reliability. Simply put, our Everlast Power Supplies deliver unprecedented, demonstrated reliability and longevity in the most demanding professional AV environments.
