Anaheim, Calif.-based Extron announced it is now taking orders for the Quantum Ultra II 610 and Quantum Ultra II 305. Per the company, the products are the next generation of Extron videowall processors that provide advanced connectivity and throughput capabilities.

Features of the Quantum Ultra II

The 18 Gbps HDMI connections on the 4K input and output cards facilitate single-path 4K/60 signals and are HDCP 2.3 compliant. Additionally, the 8K-ready HyperLane video bus supports more than 20 4K/60 sources. Embedded HDMI audio from any source can be routed independently to one or more active canvasses.

The Quantum Ultra II has various features including portrait and landscape output support, output overlap, bezel compensation and custom output resolutions. Thus, it ensures compatibility with nearly any display.

“Quantum Ultra II expands the performance and capabilities of our innovative Quantum Ultra videowall processors,” says Casey Hall, vice president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Extron. Hall adds that it offers single-path 4K/60 HDMI connectivity with an enhanced, dedicated 500 Gbps HyperLane video bus. Thus, the Quantum Ultra II provides a powerful platform for the most demanding 4K videowall applications.

Modular Architecture

Moreover, the Quantum Ultra II utilizes a modular architecture consisting of a card frame, input cards and output cards to meet the needs of any application. The Quantum Ultra II 610 is a 6U, 10-slot card frame. It supports any combination of input and output cards for I/O sizes up to 36×4, 4×36, or anything in between. On the other hand, the Quantum Ultra II 305 is a 3U, 5-slot card frame for small to medium-sized videowalls. It can support multiple videowalls with mixed resolutions and screen orientations.

The Quantum IN4HDMI 4K PLUS input card accepts up to four single-path 4K/60 HDMI signals. Meanwhile, the Quantum IN4HDMI accepts one 4K/60 HDMI, two 4K/30, or four 2K signals.

The Quantum IN SMD 100 decodes up to four 1080p/60, eight 1080p/30, or 16 SD resolution streams. It is also compatible with MPEG-2, Motion JPEG, and H.264 streams. The OUT4HDMI 4K PLUS output card delivers four HDMI signals up to 4K/60. The OUT4HDMI and OUT4DTP output cards deliver from one to four outputs at resolutions from 1024×768 to 4K/60.

The company adds that output on the OUT4DTP is selectable and offers DTP, XTP, and HDBaseT twisted pair output modes for signal extension up to 330 feet (100 meters) in a wide variety of mission-critical environments.
