Extron Expands Twisted Pair Lineup With Three New High Resolution Switchers
Anaheim, California (June 9, 2004)
– Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce three new additions to its twisted pair product family. The SW2 MTP T 15HD A
, SW4 MTP T 15HD A
, and SW6 MTP T 15HD A
are two, four, and six input, one output computer-video and audio switchers with an integrated twisted pair transmitter. Each model transmits a selected computer video and summed mono (L+R) audio signal to a compatible twisted pair receiver. Each switcher also features a second audio output from a 3.5 mm captive screw connector for sending a balanced or unbalanced analog stereo audio signal to a local amplifier. The SW MTP 15HD A Series can be used with Extron Enhanced Skew-Free™ AV UTP cable (patent pending) or any CAT 5, 5e, or 6 data grade twisted pair cable for point-to-point cable runs of up to 600 feet (185 meters) with XGA signals, and 450 feet (135 meters) with UXGA signals. "The SW MTP 15HD A Series switchers are loaded with advanced features, including autoswitching, remote control via RS-232 or contact closure, and the ability to send high resolution video and audio signals over one UTP cable," says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing for Extron. "They are another innovative addition to Extron's complete line of twisted pair system solutions." The dual-function remote control port supports both RS-232 communication and contact closure control on the same 9-pin D-sub connector, allowing for a wide range of monitoring and control options. The RS-232 control supports bidirectional communication for remote monitoring and control using Extron MediaLink®, IP Link®, or third-party control system. The list price for the SW2 MTP T 15HD A is $990.00, the list price for the SW4 MTP T 15HD A is $1,190.00, and the list price for the SW6 MTP T 15HD A is $1,390.00. All three models are available now.
