The Extron MGP 464 Pro is a powerful, high resolution multi-window processor that enables the simultaneous display of four images on a single screen. Full HDCP compliance at all HDMI video inputs and outputs assures worry-free presentation of protected content. The MGP 464 Pro includes an HDMI background input connection, which enables the windows to be placed over a live video display and allows cascading multiple processors to generate more windows at the output. The MGP 464 Pro also provides two simultaneous outputs that generate HDMI and RGBHV video, simplifying integration with different display devices. The MGP 464 Pro is ideal for applications that require side-by-side display of critical quality graphics and video content from multiple sources.

A wide range of input sources can be accommodated, including HDMI, 1920x1200 computer video, composite video, HDTV 1080p/60, and 2K. The MGP 464 Pro is also available with optional HDMI and 3G-SDI/HD-SDI inputs. The internal input matrix switcher and multiple high performance video scalers allow any of up to 19 available inputs to be scaled and placed in any of up to four windows for picture-in-picture display. In addition, the MGP 464 Pro outputs selectable scan rates, including 1920x1200 computer video, HDTV 1080p/60, and 2K through analog RGB or component video, as well as HDMI.

To enhance and simplify integration of sources and displays, the MGP 464 Pro features Key Minder®, an Extron-exclusive technology. For HDMI signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching in professional AV environments. When receiving an HDCP-encrypted HDMI input source, the MGP 464 Pro displays a green screen on any video output connected to a non-HDCP compliant display. This provides immediate visual confirmation that protected content cannot be viewed on the display.

The MGP 464 Pro offers an advanced feature set, which enables custom multi-image displays, including picture-in-picture window positioning, size, zoom, priority, image freeze, bordering with selectable colors, and text labeling. The MGP 464 Pro incorporates picture and window fine tuning controls for unlimited picture-in-picture customization. Windows can appear and disappear using elegant effects, including wipes and dissolves for enhanced, professional quality multi-image presentations.

With the integrated Graphic Still Store, screen captures of the current output can be stored for use as presentation background images. Alternatively, BMP bitmap graphics can be uploaded from a PC via the Ethernet port, and recalled as a background. In addition, live video from an HDMI source can serve as the background to any presentation. Images stored on the MGP 464 Pro can be downloaded to a PC through Ethernet for archival use.

The MGP 464 Pro features full front panel controls for comprehensive, integrator and user-friendly access to all functions. Remote control of the MGP 464 Pro is available via RS-232 with Extron SIS™ - Simple Instruction Set. Ethernet control enables remote management and support from any computer with a Web browser. In addition, the included Windows®-based control program provides complete, real-time operation of the MGP 464 Pro. The software enables control of all functions and configuration options, including window sizing and positioning, virtual video input configuration, and Graphic Still Store.
