Model Version Description Part #
MTP SW6 Six Input Switcher 60-928-01

The Extron MTP SW6 is a six input, one output MTP switcher that is fully compatible with all MTP transmitters, receivers, distribution amplifiers, and matrix switchers. The switcher is designed for applications where up to six MTP transmitters need to be switched to a single MTP receiver to provide a complete twisted pair switching solution from source to display. When paired with the Extron MTP Universal Receiver, the MTP SW6 is ideal for applications where a variety of signal formats, including composite, S-video, component, HD component, or RGB, must be switched to a single display. Using the MTP U T A D Universal Transmitter with the MTP SW6 considerably expands the inputs and overall system flexibility, making it a unique twisted pair switching solution.

The MTP SW6 provides the capability to store unique settings for each input, including video level and peaking, as well as dynamic skew equalization, ensuring optimal image quality with various input cable lengths. These settings are automatically recalled when an input is selected.

The MTP SW6 features four flexible methods of control -- front panel, RS-232, contact closure, and auto-input switching, which automatically switches to the highest-numbered input with an active video signal. The local RS-232 insertion port eliminates the need for a separate control cable infrastructure and extends serial control over long distances.

The MTP SW6 also provides compatibility for stereo sound systems as its local dual mono audio output with volume control distributes mono audio feeds into two channels. An output video pre-peaking feature provides additional compensation for optimal performance with the longest cable runs, ensuring the highest quality signal at the display. The switcher is housed in a compact, 1U, half rack width enclosure.
