Anaheim, California (March 10, 2005) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce two new Video Picture-in-Picture Processors, the PIP 422 and PIP 444. The PIP 422 displays two video windows within the same screen. The PIP 444 displays up to four video windows, and is designed as a replacement for the MVP 104GX. Both models accommodate composite video, S-video, or component video sources. These next-generation products offer an attractive combination of high performance and affordability for applications requiring the simultaneous display of multiple video sources such as videoconferencing, distance learning, usability labs, and event/staging. "The PIP 422 and PIP 444 are flexible, user friendly products that should satisfy any need to place multiple video windows on a single display," says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing for Extron. "They are the latest additions to Extron's new generation of high performance video and computer graphics picture-in-picture processors." Fully customizable picture-in-picture presentations can be created with the PIP 422 and PIP 444, using a series of independent, fine-tuning controls for each video window. These can then be quickly saved into and recalled from memory preset locations. Window transition effects including a cut, dissolve, or wipe are available to enhance presentations. Full front panel controls provide easy access to all functions. The PIP 422 and PIP 444 feature a dedicated, configurable input for each video window, and also provide a buffered loop-through output for each input. Picture-in-picture video is output simultaneously as composite video, S-video, and component video. Both models are quad standard compatible for worldwide video compatibility. The PIP 422 lists for $1,195, and the PIP 444 lists for $4,495. For availability, contact an Extron Customer Support Representative at 800.633.9876.
