Anaheim, California (February 24, 2011) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the MTPX Plus 6464, a 64x64 twisted pair matrix switcher for RGBHV, HD component video, standard definition video, audio, and RS-232. It is one of five models in the MTPX Plus 6400 Series of large-scale twisted pair matrix switchers, and incorporates industry-leading features of the MTPX Plus Series with new capabilities, including EDID Minder® for local inputs and outputs, RS-232 insertion from the Ethernet port to all MTP outputs, and switchable video pre-peaking on all outputs.

"With the availability of the MTPX Plus 6464, AV designers can now deploy twisted pair signal distribution in much larger systems," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "Its advanced features make system integration easier and eliminate the headaches encountered with other twisted pair solutions."

The MTPX Plus 6464, the largest in the MTPX Plus 6400 Series, is capable of switching local and remote AV signals to multiple destinations and is fully compatible with the entire Extron MTP product line. The MTPX Plus 6400 Series provides additional features to dramatically reduce costs associated with rack space, cabling, and installation. These features include dynamic skew equalization to maintain RGB color alignment at all times, video level and peaking compensation for brighter and sharper images, local RS-232 insertion ports to eliminate the need for control system wiring to remote displays, local high resolution video inputs and outputs to eliminate the need for additional transmitters and receivers, and local audio output volume adjustment and muting to eliminate the need for preamplifiers in many AV systems.

When paired with Extron MTP U Series Universal Transmitter and Receivers, MTPX Plus Series Twisted Pair Matrix Switchers allow VGA, component video, S-video, and composite video, 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. Using one cable for all signal types simplifies system wiring and requires only a single matrix switcher output and MTP U R Series receiver per display.

Additional models in the MTPX Plus 6400 Series include the MTPX Plus 4864, MTPX Plus 4848, MTPX Plus 6448, and MTPX Plus 6432

The MTPX Plus 6464 is part of the most comprehensive twisted pair product line in the industry and reflects Extron's commitment to providing twisted pair solutions for a broad range of applications.
