Charge and Present Simultaneously  
Simple all-in-one design allows for charging while collaborating via USB-C.  Connect and conduct presentations on a laptop with USB-C such as MacBook, PC, or Chromebook and receive up to 60w of charging power without adapters! 

Auto Switch  
Switch between sources and displays using auto-switching, front panel controls, or via RS232.  Control third-party display connected to the switcher automatically when the switcher sees a connected source via RS232 or CEC.  As an added bonus, the USB host is auto switching too!  The USB-C connector not only passes AV and Power, but it acts as a second host port.  When a USB-C host device is connected, the USB hub will auto switch the host, making USB-C the new USB host and automatically giving access to the room camera, microphone, and peripherals.  Unplug the USB-C and the USB-B now automatically becomes the host.  

Creating a “Zoom Room”?  Simply leave a room PC permanently connected while allowing a user to easily connect a laptop, auto switch, and launch a different service at any time — it’s simple to use and smart!!  Supports 2x1 AV auto switching with HDMI and USB-C input and a single HDMI output, with video resolutions up to 4Kx2K@60Hz 4:4:4, HDR, and multichannel audio.

EDID Management  
In addition to passing native EDID information from the display to an input, DigitaLinx Soft Codec Switcher (DL-SCU21C) offers multiple built-in EDID settings to choose from, simplifying an installation. The switcher will de-embed 2-channel analog audio for audio reinforcement which is de-embedded from the HDMI output.

 Everything You Need from Source to Screen
Complete your Soft Codec Switcher setup with the DigitaLinx Extender Set with IR (DL0HD70LS-H2) which will deliver 18G 4K HDR up to 70m, and connect a full selection of HDMI, USB, and optical cables.
