Extron Introduces New Generation of Video Picture-in-Picture Processors
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.
