Featuring a High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), this allows the unit direct digital video connection to a display device. In addition, the RT-20 has serial
RS-232C remote capabilities, which allows it to be controlled by products from industry leaders such as Crestronâ„¢ and AMXâ„¢.
The front panel of the RT-20 is crafted from a 1/2″ thick piece of solid aluminum, which is carefully machined and finished to create the unique look of Lexicon’s home theater line. The uncluttered front panel is user friendly and provides basic controls and the signature blue display. The top and sides are covered by a single piece of aluminum that wraps around the sides to the bottom of the unit and is coupled to the chassis with flush mounted machine screws.
For the best possible performance, an HDMI output offers digital video with available up-conversion to 720p or 1080i. For analog video output, the RT-20 features 14-bit/216 MHz digital-to-analog converters, progressive scan component video output, and BNC-style component video output connectors. The video digital-to-analog converters ensure the pristine digital video image does not degrade during the conversion to analog. The RT-20 automatically converts the frame rate of film sources, which are recorded at 24 frames per second, to 60 frames per second for improved picture quality. Progressive scan component video output (BNC or RCA) converts interlaced video signals into progressive video signals, which doubles the amount of video information being sent to a compatible display device. The result is a more stable, â€œflicker-freeâ€ image with fewer video artifacts. Comprehensive video adjustments complement exceptional video performance, allowing the RT-20 to be fine-tuned for any type of display device.
The RT-20 features three S/PDIF digital audio outputs: one AES/EBU, one coaxial (RCA) and one optical (Toslink) connector, allowing for external decoding and processing of Dolby Digital, dts and PCM sources. The RT-20 also has built-in 24-bit/192 kHz digital-to-analog converters for all analog output channels to enable high-bandwidth formats, such as DVD-A and SACD, to be enjoyed in full resolution without any reduction in the sampling rate or digital word length. The result is pristine, high-quality audio from any disc.
