Extron launches media presentation switcher

Extron Electronics has introduced the MPS 601, a compact six input, one output media presentation switcher for digital and analogue sources.

It offers four, HDCP-compliant HDMI inputs and two RGB video inputs with analog stereo audio. RGB video and analog audio are digitized and switched through the HDMI output. The MPS 601 features two Extron-exclusive technologies: EDID Minder, which maintains continuous EDID communication between connected devices; and Key Minder, which continuously authenticates and maintains HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching.

The MPS 601 offers cable equalization on each HDMI input, automatic color bit depth management, indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as peripheral device powering.
