The Extron XTP SFR HD 4K is an XTP® scaling receiver for extending video, audio, bidirectional control, and Ethernet over one fiber optic cable. It accepts signals from XTP Fiber transmission products, and incorporates Extron Vector™ 4K scaling technology to deliver selectable HDMI video resolutions up to 4K with uncompromised image quality. For streamlined integration, it features on‑screen menus, audio de‑embedding to digital S/PDIF or analog stereo audio outputs, and relays for room control. Ethernet extension along with RS‑232 and IR insertion allow LAN access and remote AV device control. Signals can be delivered up to 700 meters (2,297 feet) over OM4 multimode fiber optic cable and up to 10 km (6.21 miles) over singlemode cable. The XTP SFR HD 4K is ideal for XTP Systems® that require long-haul distribution and scaling of 4K video.
Exclusive Vector 4K Scaling Technology The XTP SFR HD 4K delivers computer and video resolutions at selectable output rates from 640x480 up to UHD 3840x2160. The integrated Extron Vector 4K scaling technology delivers best-in-class image upscaling and downscaling using exclusive, high-precision processing algorithms for exceptional scaling performance. Selectable FILL and FOLLOW modes are available to ensure the proper aspect ratio of the output. FILL mode provides full screen output, while FOLLOW mode preserves the original aspect ratio of the input signal. Additionally, the color space and chroma sampling of the HDMI output can be automatically set to ensure compatibility with a connected DVI or HDMI display. The XTP SFR HD 4K scaling receiver enhances the video performance of XTP Systems by providing the optimal output resolution to match the display, and maximizes system compatibility by supporting a wide range of input video resolutions.
Built for Professional Integration To enhance and simplify integration of digital and analog AV devices, XTP endpoints utilize two Extron technologies: EDID Minder and Key Minder. EDID Minder automatically manages EDID communication between input sources and display devices, to ensure that sources power up properly and reliably send content for display. For HDMI and DisplayPort signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching. If HDCP-encrypted content is sent to a non‑compliant display, a full-screen green signal is transmitted to the destination, providing immediate visual confirmation that protected content cannot be viewed on the selected display.
In addition to high performance video, the XTP SFR HD 4K accepts audio signals over the one cable. The scaling receiver provides signal distribution for HDMI embedded audio or audio de-embedding with multi-channel S/PDIF or two-channel balanced/unbalanced analog stereo and PCM audio. To allow precise control of the audio, the receiver features volume adjustment and muting capabilities. This flexibility simplifies system design and reduces the number of cable runs between endpoints.
The XTP SFR HD 4K includes an RS‑232 and IR insertion port, allowing bidirectional control of an AV device using the same fiber optic cable. This feature simplifies integration with a control system for managing a remote display. Centralized 10/100 Ethernet communication can be implemented via the Ethernet extension port to reduce the number of independent network drops required within a system, and two built-in relays allow operation of a projector lift, screen, or similar device at the remote location.
Multimode and Singlemode Models Available The scaling receiver provides industry standard LC-type connectivity and is available in two formats: multimode and singlemode. The XTP SFR HD 4K MM model supports OM4 multimode fiber optic cable, which is typically used within office towers, retail centers, and larger houses of worship with moderate-range transmission distances of up to 700 meters (2,297 feet). The XTP SFR HD 4K SM model supports singlemode cable, offering long-range transmission capability up to 10 km (6.21 miles). It is used in large facilities, including digital signage and staging applications as well as connecting over very long distances between locations, such as corporate and university campuses. Because transmission of content is inherently secure and immune to outside interference, fiber applications are also favored in government, military, medical, and other sensitive environments.
Extron XTP Systems Extron XTP Systems provide a completely integrated switching and distribution solution for multiple digital and analog formats. They support local connectivity as well as extended transmission capability for sending high resolution video, audio, RS‑232, and Ethernet up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a shielded CATx cable and even greater distances over fiber optic cabling. Each system is HDCP compliant and delivers ultra‑fast, highly reliable digital switching with Extron's SpeedSwitch® Technology.
At the heart of a system is an XTP CrossPoint matrix switcher. The modular matrix switchers are expandable from 4x4 to 64x64, depending on frame size, and can be populated with a wide variety of XTP I/O matrix boards. Input and output boards provide direct HDMI, DVI, VGA, video, and audio connections to local sources and displays, and signal extension to remote endpoints when using XTP transmitters and receivers. The matrix switcher can also provide power to a remote XTP device over CATx cabling, depending on transmitter model.
The online XTP System Builder gives convenient access for complete system design. The tool also features a printable bill of materials, pricing, and quote submittal. Once the order is confirmed and received, the included XTP System Configuration Software enables easy setup and configuration right out of the box.
To configure, operate, and monitor the system in real time, user-friendly control software offers a complete view of all XTP devices from a computer. With hot‑swappable modular components, a wide selection of XTP transmitters and receivers, and advanced 24/7 system monitoring, XTP Systems are designed to provide continuous, trouble-free operation in the most critical applications.

In 2019 heeft er een project plaatsgevonden om de entree van het gebied ook werelderfgoed-waardig te maken, net als de rest. Een onderdeel van dit project was de bouw van het hulpgemaal De Fabriek. In deze replica is nu een filmzaal gevestigd. De audiovisuele inrichting van het filmhuis was enigszins complex.
