Anaheim, California (June 17, 2009)- Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the MTP U T A D, a Universal MTP Twisted Pair Transmitter designed with multiple video and audio inputs that can be installed in any two-gang decorator-style wallplate. It offers dedicated inputs for VGA, HD component, S-video, and composite video with audio, and automatically switches to the active source, transmitting the signal over a single CAT 5-type cable. The MTP U T A D eliminates the need for multiple transmitter units and multiple cables for each source, and dramatically reduces the number of matrix switcher inputs required. It provides the integration friendly features designers and integrators have come to expect from Extron, including EDID emulation, auto-input switching, contact closure remote control for input selection, buffered local monitor output, and switchable video output pre-peaking.

"When used with our Universal MTP Receivers, this new Universal MTP Transmitter offers savings in cost, installation time, equipment, and rack space," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron Electronics. "A single universal transmitter and receiver pair can replace up to four individual dedicated transmitters and four individual dedicated receivers."

The MTP U T A D Universal Transmitter is compatible with all Extron MTP Series Twisted Pair products, including receivers, distribution amplifiers, switchers, and matrix switchers, to create a wide range of simple and complex AV systems. It is ideal for use in twisted pair applications that require support for multiple video formats and audio.
