Extron Electronics says its MTPX Plus 6464, a 64×64 twisted pair matrix switcher for RGBHV, HD component video, standard definition video, audio, and RS-232 is now available.
It is one of five models in the MTPX Plus 6400 Series of large-scale twisted pair matrix switchers, and incorporates industry-leading features of the MTPX Plus Series with new capabilities, including EDID MinderÂ for local inputs and outputs, RS-232 insertion from the Ethernet port to all MTP outputs, and switchable video pre-peaking on all outputs, the company says in a written statement.
The MTPX Plus 6464, the largest in the MTPX Plus 6400 Series, is capable of switching local and remote AV signals to multiple destinations and is fully compatible with the entire Extron MTP product line. The MTPX Plus 6400 Series provides additional features to dramatically reduce costs associated with rack space, cabling, and installation. Those features include dynamic skew equalization to maintain RGB color alignment at all times, video level and peaking compensation for brighter and sharper images, local RS-232 insertion ports to eliminate the need for control system wiring to remote displays, local high resolution video inputs and outputs to eliminate the need for additional transmitters and receivers, and local audio output volume adjustment and muting to eliminate the need for preamplifiers in many AV systems, the company says.
“With the availability of the MTPX Plus 6464, AV designers can now deploy twisted pair signal distribution in much larger systems,” says Casey Hall, Extron’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Its advanced features make system integration easier and eliminate the headaches encountered with other twisted pair solutions,” he says.
