At ISE in Amsterdam last week, Extron announced a new version of the MGP 464: the MGP 464 HD-SDI. As the newest model within Extron’s family of Four Window Multi-Graphics processors, the MGP 464 HD-SDI offers two HD-SDI inputs and two DVI inputs, along with analog RGBHV input capability. The availability of HD-SDI inputs allows for easy integration of professional HD video equipment, visualization processors, and medical imaging devices equipped with HD-SDI high definition digital video outputs. The MGP 464 is for use in command and control, network operations centers, videoconferencing, medical facilities, courtrooms, boardrooms, and other sophisticated A/V environments where critical, high quality multi-window displays are required.
With the addition of the new HD-SDI model, the MGP 464 is now available in three versions: the MGP 464 base model with four RGBHV inputs, the MGP 464 DI which adds four DVI inputs, and the MGP 464 HD-SDI with two DVI and two HD-SDI inputs. All versions of the MGP 464 feature high-resolution analog RGBHV inputs as well as 15 virtual inputs for standard definition video sources. All three models accept up to 19 input sources and feature a true 19×4 input matrix switcher that allows any source to be displayed in any or all four windows, which are combined onto a single output. Simultaneous analog and DVI outputs are provided for RGB up to 1600×1200 or HDTV 1080p/60. To read all about the MGP with HD-SDI, visit here.
Nice. I’ve worked with the MGP-464, and I like it a lot. The addition of HD-SDI in a product in its class allows us to round out distribution and switching systems for a number of HD purposes.
