The Extron MTPX Plus 168 Twisted Pair Matrix Switcher represents the next generation of twisted pair integration. Local video and audio inputs and outputs enable direct connection of equipment that is located within the same rack as the MTPX Plus 168 matrix, greatly reducing system complexity by eliminating additional MTP transmitters and receivers. The MTPX Plus 168 also provides dynamic skew equalization on all inputs and outputs. This industry first innovation ensures that MTP cable skew is eliminated —no matter which combination of input/output cable lengths are selected. Yet another innovative feature, local RS-232 insertion ports, allows a control system located near the MTPX Plus to connect to and control remote displays over the same MTP output cable that carries the AV signal.
