Anaheim, California (February 4, 2009) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the MGP 464 HD-SDI. As the newest model within Extron's popular 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 video equipment, visualization processors, and medical imaging devices equipped with HD-SDI high definition digital video outputs. The MGP 464 is ideal for use in command and control, network operations centers, videoconferencing, medical facilities, courtrooms, boardrooms, and other sophisticated AV environments where critical, high quality multi-window displays are required.

"HD-SDI is becoming more common as a high data rate transport of choice for AV presentation and imaging products," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron. “The MGP 464 HD-SDI provides high performance video scaling and multi-window processing capabilities to enable multi-image display of these high resolution digital video sources."

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 19x4 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 1600x1200 or HDTV 1080p/60. In addition to a host of features for fully customizing PIP presentations, static or full-motion images can be incorporated as backgrounds. The MGP 464 includes Extron's innovative Graphic Still Store, a feature that enables live screen captures, or images uploaded from a PC, to be stored for use as presentation background images. In addition, live video from a DVI source can also serve as the background to any PIP presentation.
