The Extron SW MTP 15HD A Series is a versatile family of switchers for selecting and transmitting VGA and audio signals to presentation displays over a single UTP - unshielded twisted pair cable. 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 switchers that transmit RGBHV, RGBS, RGsB, HDTV, and other high resolution video and audio signals to a compatible MTP receiver. The SW MTP 15HD A series of switchers can be used with Extron Enhanced Skew-Free AV UTP cable or any CAT 5, 5e, or 6 data grade twisted pair cable for point-to-point cable runs of 600 feet (185 meters) or more with XGA signals, and 450 feet (135 meters) or more with UXGA signals.

Each model accepts two, four, or six computer video and audio inputs on female 15-pin HD connectors and 3.5 mm stereo audio jacks. The switcher transmits the selected computer video and summed mono audio signal to a compatible twisted pair receiver. Also, the switcher features a second audio output from a 3.5 mm captive screw connector for sending a balanced or unbalanced line level stereo audio signal to a local amplifier, recording device, or video conferencing codec.

Each switcher can be controlled using the front panel or remotely via contact closure or RS-232 signals. The dual-function remote control feature allows for numerous installation and control options. For example, the switcher can be installed in a secure location, such as an equipment rack or cabinet, and the control of the switcher can be managed using the optional Extron IR 102 Universal Remote Control Kit, KP 6 Keypad Remote Control, or IP Link control interface to create cost-effective solutions with maximum functionality.

Using the autoswitching feature, the switcher can be set to switch automatically to the active source. For example, a number of wall plate receptacles can be installed around a room, each routed to a different input of the switcher. When an active computer-video source is connected to the wall plate, the switcher automatically selects that input. When two or more sources are detected at the same time the highest numbered input is automatically selected. The autoswitch function can be enabled or disabled via front panel buttons.

The compact SW MTP 15HD A Series of switchers are designed for easy integration into new and existing AV environments. The entire family of Extron MTP 15HD products sets the price/performance standard for audio/video twisted pair technology. The MTP 15HD Series is a complete twisted pair system including transmitters, receivers, and switchers, providing the ability to send, route, and distribute high resolution video, audio, and control signals. The SW MTP Series is ideal for systems where high resolution video signals must be transmitted long distances to a display where conduit space is limited or for audio/video systems where cabling might be exposed or visible.
