Anaheim, California (June 11, 2010) - Building upon the success of the existing MTPX Plus Series, Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the MTPX Plus 6400 Series large-scale twisted pair matrix switchers. Available in 12 different I/O sizes, from 16x48 to 64x64, the MTPX Plus 6400 Series expands on the industry-leading features of the MTPX Plus Series with new advanced features, 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. The MTPX Plus 6400 Series further facilitates system integration and eliminates many of the headaches normally encountered with other twisted pair solutions.

"Since its introduction nearly three years ago, the MTPX Plus Series has become the AV integrator's matrix switcher of choice for twisted pair applications," says Casey Hall, Vice President Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The addition of these new larger sizes and key technology advancements provide system designers with a complete family of products that take full advantage of the benefits offered by twisted pair signal distribution."

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.

The MTPX Plus 6400 Series is part of the most comprehensive twisted pair product line in the industry, and Extron's commitment to provide complete twisted pair solutions for every application.
