Extron’s new MPS 601 is a compact (half-rack width) six-input, one-output media presentation switcher for digital and analog sources. It offers four HDCP-compliant HDMI inputs and two RGB video inputs with analog stereo audio. RGB video and analog audio are digitized and switched through the HDMI output. The MPS 601 also features Extron EDID Minder, which maintains continuous EDID communication between connected devices and Key Minder, which continuously authenticates and maintains HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick switching.
The MPS 601 offers integrator-friendly features, including cable equalization on each HDMI input, automatic color bit depth management, indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as peripheral device powering. Multiple control options including front panel, RS232, contact closure and auto-input switching also help streamline integration into various environments. Housed in a 1U half-rack width metal enclosure, the compact MPS 601 can be rack-mounted, installed in a lectern, or mounted under a table.
