Media Presentation Switcher

The Extron MPS 601 is a compact six input, one output media presentation switcher for routing digital and analog sources to a single display. 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. RGB inputs support video resolutions up to 2K. The HDMI inputs and output support resolutions up to 4096x2160 at 30 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling, and data rates up to 10.2 Gbps. The switcher features EDID Minder®, which maintains continuous EDID communication with connected devices and ensures that the sources power up properly and maintain correct video output. The MPS 601 is ideal for applications that require the routing of digital and analog sources to a single display.

MPS 601 (Brochure)

For ease of integration, analog audio inputs can be assigned. In normal operation, the analog audio inputs follow the corresponding RGB input. Alternately, they can be assigned to follow preset groups of digital and RGB inputs, enabling the grouped inputs to share a common analog audio input. Analog audio assignment is available for digital and RGB inputs supporting video resolutions up to 2K. For 4K digital video inputs, the embedded digital audio whether present or not, will be switched through the HDMI output.

The MPS 601 offers integrator-friendly features, including cable equalization on each HDMI input, indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as peripheral device powering. Automatic input cable equalization corrects for signal loss due to lengthy input cables, ensuring signal integrity up to 50 feet (15 meters) for 4K video signals when used with Extron HDMI Pro Series cable. Front panel LED indicators provide immediate visual confirmation of HDCP authentication and signal presence for each input and the output. The MPS 601 also provides +5 VDC, 250 mA on the HDMI output for powering peripheral devices such as a HD 4K 101 Plus cable equalizer.

The MPS 601 provides multiple control points allowing for streamlined integration into various environments. Convenient control options include front panel, RS‑232, contact closure with tally, and auto-input switching. The six contact closure ports with tally allow for remote selection and muting of an input via a simple push-button control. Housed in a 1U half-rack width metal enclosure, the compact MPS 601 can be rack-mounted, installed in a lectern with the Extron Half Rack Shelf System, or mounted under a table with the Extron UTS Series Under Table Shelf System.
