Whitman-Hanson is also a shining example of how design consultants, architects, AV integrators, and end-users can work together from the inception of a project to achieve great results. After a feasibility study determined that renovating the existing, sixty-plus year-old school buildings would be cost-prohibitive, it was decided to start from scratch on a new, energy-efficient, , square foot building on the same property. This ground-up approach allowed the designers, architects, and consultants to optimistically aim toward some exciting and challenging goals. One of the main project goals was for the school to become a model for 21st Century social and academic teaching and learning which responds to the most recent advancements in teaching, learning, technology, and social behavior.

About This Item The CrossPoint Ultra is a 16x8 ultra-wideband matrix switcher designed to deliver exceptional performance in the most demanding, very high resolution computer-video and stereo audio routing systems. CrossPoint Ultra is ideal for complex AV routing applications that require efficient, reliable operation at the highest computer-video resolutions without signal loss or degradation.

Ultra-wideband performance High demand applications require high performance signal routing. This means that the matrix switcher is virtually transparent to the AV signal path supporting the most demanding, high resolution system designs with multiple levels of signal processing. Ultra-low crosstalk Crosstalk interference occurs when electrical signals "leak" from one component or circuit board signal line to another due to improper shielding or isolation.

CrossPoint Ultra matrix switchers are engineered to achieve superb channel-to-channel isolation of dB or better at MHz. This minimizes signal leakage across video channels, and eliminates signal bleed-through that can compromise critical imaging or high-security presentation environments.

Ultra-efficient power supply Temperature has the highest impact on component life. Efficient enclosure design and, in particular, the power supply, can drastically cut down on heat generation and power consumption.

CrossPoint Ultra matrix switchers use a single, highly-efficient, cool-running power supply, allowing the utilization of a fan-free enclosure. Ultra-low power consumption CrossPoint Ultra is engineered for use in high-demand, rack-mount applications with other AV signal processing devices. Through efficiency of design and the careful selection of high-quality, long-life electronic components, CrossPoint Ultra draws less than 52 watts at VAC under full load, less than a standard desk lamp.

Low power consumption equates to less heat generation which translates to a lower cost of ownership and an increased product lifespan. The result is optimum reliability around the clock, year in and year out. Ultra-flexible control With so many makes and models of control systems available, you need a matrix switcher that can work with any or all of them, and one that does not lock your system design into a single closed, proprietary control protocol.

This means that the matrix switcher is virtually transparent to the AV signal path for the most demanding, high resolution system designs with multiple levels of signal processing. Ultra-low power consumption — Less than 55 watts at full load — Draws less than 55 watts under full load for increased product life with very low cost of operation.

RGBHV switching — Switches separate horizontal and vertical sync to ensure proper sync polarity, providing a more stable image. This ensures a stable sync signal for improved signal compatibility with any LCD, DLP, plasma, or other digital display device. DSVP then transmits the horizontal and vertical sync information to the user through the serial or Ethernet ports. The new sync signals precede the RGB signals, so there is no glitch shown during the transition. The time delay between the RGB and sync signals is adjustable up to five seconds through front panel, Ethernet, or serial control.

HVA models switch both balanced and unbalanced stereo audio Audio input gain and attenuation — Allows users to set the level of gain or attenuation for each audio input channel, eliminating noticeable volume differences when switching between sources. Audio output volume adjustment and muting — Can be set dynamically for each channel through the front panel or serial control, eliminating the need for an audio preamplifier in many system designs.

Audio breakaway — Provides the capability to break an audio signal away from its corresponding video signal, allowing the audio and video signals from one source to be switched to different destinations. Ultra-flexible control — Standard front panel, RS, and Ethernet control simplifies and enhances integration with any control system.

Tri-color, backlit buttons — Can be custom labeled for easy identification. The buttons illuminate red, green, or amber, depending on function, for ease of use in low-light environments. RS and RS control port — Using serial commands, CrossPoint Ultra can be controlled and configured via the included Windows-based control software, or integrated into a control system.

The serial port also makes it easy to install firmware updates. Ethernet control provides for remote selection of input and output ties, adjustment and control of audio input and output levels, and advanced system diagnostics.

Front panel security lockout — Prevents unauthorized use in non-secure environments. In lockout mode, a special button combination is required to operate the switcher from the front panel controller. Rooming — All models can be programmed to group selected outputs into specific "rooms," each with its own set of unique presets. Each room can support up to 16 outputs.

A total of 10 rooms, with 10 presets per room, are available. Optional remote controls — Available control panels and keypads provide the flexibility to control the matrix switcher from a remote location. Rack-mountable metal enclosure — CrossPoint Ultra is housed in inch wide metal enclosure and features integrated rack ears for ease of installation.
