Six Input MTP Twisted Pair Switcher

The Extron MTP SW6 is a six input, one output MTP switcher that is fully compatible with all MTP transmitters, receivers, distribution amplifiers, and matrix switchers. The switcher is designed for applications where up to six MTP transmitters are required to be switched to a single MTP receiver to provide a complete twisted pair switching solution from source to display. When paired with the Extron MTP Universal Receiver, the MTP SW6 is ideal for applications where a variety of signal formats, including composite, S-video, component, HD component, or RGB, must be switched to a single display.

The MTP SW6 provides the capability to store unique settings for each input, including video level and peaking, as well as dynamic skew equalization, ensuring optimal image quality with various input cable lengths. These settings are automaticallly recalled when an input is selected.

Input Level and Peaking Compensation

The MTP SW6 twisted pair switcher maintains image quality by providing video level and peaking compensation on each input for brighter and sharper images. These easily applied adjustments compensate for signal loss over long cable runs and the differences between the cable lengths of each input. Settings are stored in memory for each input and instantaneously recalled with each input selection.

Dynamic Skew Equalization

The MTP SW6 features integrated skew equalization for all inputs to compensate for both the input cable length and output cable length. This advanced feature reduces installation time and the need for additional equipment, while providing superior performance and image quality. As with level and peaking compensation, adjustments for skew are stored in memory for each signal path and applied automatically during operation, enabling RGB color alignment at all times.

Local RS-232 Insertion Port

The local RS-232 insertion port on the MTP SW6 transmits video and bi-directional serial control over a single CAT 5-type cable. With direct insertion of bi-directional serial control signals into the MTP output, the need for additional control system wiring to the remote display is eliminated and serial control is extended beyond the recommended 100-foot distance.


The Extron MTP U T A D is a two-gang decorator-style, Universal Twisted Pair Transmitter with dedicated VGA, HD component video, S-video, composite video, and audio inputs for sending a wide variety of video signals along with summed mono audio signals over a single CAT 5-type cable.


When paired with the Extron MTP U T A D Universal Twisted Pair Transmitter and Extron MTP U Series Universal Twisted Pair Receivers, the MTP SW6 allows composite video, S-video, component video, or RGBHV, along with audio or RS-232 control signals, to be sent over a single CAT 5-type cable and output on the appropriate connector at the display.

MTP U Series Universal Receivers

MTP U Series universal receivers are fully compatible with the MTP SW6 and all MTP Series transmitters. With their compact size, they can fit just about anywhere: in equipment racks, under tables and desktops, or next to a projector.

The three models in the series are the MTP U R A that accepts video and audio signals, the MTP U R RS that accepts video and bidirectional RS-232 control signals and offers skew compensation, and the MTP U R RSA SEQ that accepts video, audio, and bidirectional RS-232 control signals and provides skew compensation. The receivers come in compact metal enclosures with versatile mounting options.
