 RGB 201 Rxi One Input Interface with Audio 60-507-01 Retired

This product has been retired.

The Extron RGB 201 Rxi is a universal, analog computer-video interface with audio that includes a female 15-pin HD input connector and a buffered local monitor output. The RGB 201 Rxi is able to convert computer-generated, unbalanced audio to stereo or mono balanced line level audio, and has 30 memory locations for recalling resolution/frequency signal settings. It is also equipped with Extron's Enhanced ADSP™ - Advanced Digital Sync Processing technology to ensure compatibility with digital projectors and flat panel displays. and a DDSP™ - Digital Display Sync Processing DIP switch to bypass sync processing and horizontal and vertical centering. The RGB 201 Rxi is ideal for classrooms, auditoriums, and conference rooms that require only one input.

With a 15-150 kHz scanning range and 300 MHz (-3 dB) RGB video bandwidth, the RGB 201 Rxi is compatible with nearly every computer-video signal, including VGA–QXGA, Mac, Sun®, and SGI®. Optional adapters for Mac to VGA and SUN/SGI to VGA connection are available. It is housed in a compact 1U, half rack width durable metal enclosure and can be rack or under-desk mounted.


  • Input: RGB video on female 15-pin HD connector; audio on 3.5 mm stereo mini connector
  • Output: RGB video on female BNC connectors for RGsB, RGBS, or RGBHV; audio on captive screw connector
  • Compatible with VGA–QXGA, Mac, Sun®, and SGI® signals
  • 300 MHz (-3 dB) RGB video bandwidth
  • Enhanced ADSP™ - Advanced Digital Sync Processing — Increased horizontal and vertical shift resolution for improved centering control.
  • 30 memory locations for automatic signal setup — Automatically recalls horizontal and vertical position settings for 30 different input signals.
  • RS-232 control
  • Buffered local monitor output
  • Variable level and peaking — Boosts and equalizes video signals to compensate for signal loss and high frequency attenuation that occur in long cable runs.
  • DSVP™ - Digital Sync Validation Processing — Confirms input sources are active by scanning horizontal and vertical sync inputs and communicates over RS-232.
  • LCD display indicates signal frequency and resolution — Provides early and easy troubleshooting.
  • Vented, rack-mountable design — Housed in a compact 1U, half rack width durable metal enclosure that can be rack or under-desk mounted.
  • Internal universal power supply

Note: Part number 60-507-01 has been retired.
