The Extron MLS 102 VGA
Model Version Description Part #
MLS 102 VGA Two Input VGA & Audio 60-497-04

The Extron MLS 102 VGA Switcher is a compact, two input switcher utilizing 15-pin HD connectors. Inputs one and two utilize 3.5 mm stereo mini jacks for easy integration to Extron VGA with audio cables. Inputs three and four provide unbalanced audio on captive screw connectors. An additional input is an active auxiliary line level mono audio input that can be mixed with any of the other four selectable inputs. When used with a TouchLink® Control System or MediaLink® Controller, input selection and volume control are easily achieved using RS-232 or the controller's user interface. Input selection can also be controlled using the MLS 102 VGA switcher's front panel buttons.

Housed in a quarter rack width metal enclosure, the MLS 102 VGA is ideal for installation in podiums and other space-constrained areas.
