output for the best quality.
About the MTPX Plus Switchers
The MTPX Plus matrix switcher (figure 1-1) distributes signals
that are compatible with the Extron MTP and VTT/VTR product
lines. The matrix switcher routes a TP input signal to any
combination of TP outputs. Depending on the MTP model,
the routed TP signal can include RGB or low resolution video
and either mono audio or transmitter-to-receiver RS-232 serial
communications. The matrix switcher can route multiple
input/output configurations simultaneously.

Four or eight (depending on the matrix size) 5-pole 3.5 mm
captive screw ports are available for direct mono audio outputs
to an audio device without an MTP transmitter.
N For low resolution MTPs (S-video and composite video) on
the TP inputs and outputs, the MTPX Plus audio circuits
are compatible only with the newer generation, mono audio
models. See the MTP transmitter/ receiver to determine
which MTP models you have.
Four, eight, or 16 (depending on the matrix size) 3-pole 3.5 mm
captive screw ports are available for bidirectional RS-232 signals
from a dedicated source (rather than from the selected input) to
be directly inserted into the signal set routed to the TP output.
The matrix switcher can be remotely controlled via its Ethernet
LAN port or either of two serial ports using either Extron’s
Windows®-based Matrix Switchers Control Program or the
Simple Instruction Set (SIS™).

For any transmission distances above 350' (100 m), turn on the transmitting
device’s (MTP transmitter or MTPX Plus) pre-peak function. See the
MTP Transmitter/Receiver User’s Manual and/or the Output pre-peaking
SIS commands on page 4-8.
N The minimum TP cable length should be 50' (15m).
N It is possible to exceed the recommended distance; however,
image quality may be reduced.
N The MTPX output can be extended by 50 feet (15 m) for
those outputs that have a Pre-Peak feature that is turned on.
N The transmitters, receivers, and matrix switcher are
designed for and perform best with Extron Enhanced
Skew-Free A/V cable terminated in accordance with
the TIA/EIA T 568 A wiring standard. CAT 5, 5e,
and 6 cables are acceptable, but less preferable. We also
recommend the use of preterminated and tested cables.
Cables terminated on site should be tested before use to
ensure that they comply with Category 5 specifications.

transmision line that encompass a transmission daisy
chain. For example, the maximum suggested range for
1024 x 768 video output by the switcher is 550’ (168 m)
with Pre-Peak on whether the transmission line consists
of the transmitter, switcher, and a single receiver or
a transmitter, the switcher, and three daisy-chained
receivers.
N For daisy-chained units, the first receiver in the chain
should be at least 50’ (15 m) from the switcher when the
Pre-Peak feature is on.
N For daisy-chained units, any receiver in the chain closer
than 350’ (105 m) may experience some form of overpeaking when the Pre-Peak switch is on.
TP Skew Equalization
Skew exists between wire pairs when the physical length of one
wire pair is different from another. Skew affects the displayed
image when the differential length between wire pairs exceeds
2 feet, causing the timing of the red, green, and blue video
signals to appear out of alignment (horizontal registration
errors). The signals transmitted on the shortest pair are shifted
to the left if you are using white lines on a black background.
A white vertical line on a black field can appear as individual
red, green, and blue lines that are close together; the signal
transmitted on the shortest wire pair leads the other colors and
appears to the left on the display. As the transmission cable
length increases, the skew effect increases.
The MTPX Plus's input and output skew equalizer functions
provide separate time delay circuits on the red, green, and blue
video lines. This allows you to properly align the red, green,
and blue video signals on the displayed image. When correctly
set, the red, green, or blue video signal on the shortest wire pair
is delayed to properly converge the displayed video image.
UTP cable test equipment measures and reports wire pair
length. The report on the various pair lengths can be used to
properly equalize pair skew. If UTP cable test measurement
cannot be done, pair skew can still be equalized by viewing a
crosshatch test pattern with a critical eye.

Selected SIS™ Commands
The switchers have Simple Instruction Set (SIS ) commands that
you can use for operation and configuration. You can run these
commands from a PC connected to either of the switcher’s serial
ports or the Ethernet port. See i, j, and l, on pages 2-5 and
2-6, for connection information.
™
Establishing a network (Ethernet) connection
Establish a network connection as follows:
1.
Open a TCP socket to port 23 using the switcher’s IP
address.
N The factory default IP address is 192.168.254.254.
The switcher responds with a copyright message including
the date, the name of the product, firmware version, part
number, and the current date/time.
N If the switcher is not password-protected, the device is now
ready to accept SIS commands.
N If the switcher is password-protected, a password prompt
appears.
2.
If the switcher is password-protected, enter the appropriate
password.
If the password is accepted, the switcher responds with
Login User or Login Administrator.
If the password is not accepted, the Password prompt
reappears.
Connection timeouts
The Ethernet link times out and disconnects after a designated
period of time of no communications. By default, this timeout
value is set to five minutes but the value can be changed. See
the Configure port timeout SIS commands on page 4-14.
Number of connections
A switcher can have up to 200 simultaneous TCP connections,
including all HTTP sockets and Telnet connections. When
the connection limit is reached, the switcher accepts no new
connections until some have been closed. No error message or
indication is given that the connection limit has been reached.
To maximize performance of your switcher, the number of
connections should stay low and unnecessary open sockets
should be closed.
Verbose mode
Telnet connections to a switcher can be used to monitor
for changes that occur on the switcher, such as front panel
operations and SIS commands from other Telnet sockets or a
serial port. For a Telnet session to receive change notices from
the switcher, the Telnet session must be in verbose mode 3. See
the Set verbose mode command on page 4-14. In verbose
mode 3, the Telnet socket reports changes in messages that
resemble SIS command responses.
Host-to-switcher instructions
The switcher accepts SIS commands through either serial port.
SIS commands consist of one or more characters per command
field. They do not require any special characters to begin or end
the command character sequence. Each switcher response to an
SIS command ends with a carriage return and a line feed (CR/
LF = ]), which signals the end of the response character string.
A string is one or more characters.
N The table that begins on the next page is a partial list
of SIS commands. For a complete listing, refer to the
MTPX Plus User's Manual.
N Extron recommends leaving the default timeout at
5 minutes and periodically issuing the Query (Q)
command to keep the connection active or disconnecting
the socket and reopening the connection when necessary.

Another way to operate the switcher, to set the skew
adjustments, the level and peaking, and the output pre-peaking
(see "Optimizing the video", beginning on page 4-17), is via
the Windows®-based Matrix Switchers Control Program. This
program is contained on the Extron Software Products CD-ROM
(included with the switcher). Run this program on a PC
connected to either of the switcher’s serial ports or the Ethernet
port. See i, j, and l, on pages 2-5 and 2-6, for connection
information. The program must be installed on a Windowsbased computer and cannot be run from the CD-ROM.

Setting MTPX level/peaking
The simplest and surest way to set the input level/peaking is to
use the included MTP signal generator and the Auto-calibration
utility within the Matrix Switchers Control Program as follows:
6.
Repeat steps 1 through 5 for each MTPX Plus input.
If, for any reason, you choose not to auto calibrate, or if
you want to fine tune the adjustment, you can manually
set the values as follows:
N To manually set the input level/peaking, proceed to step 7.
7.
1.
Disconnect the power and RJ-45 cables at the MTP
transmitter connected to the MTPX Plus input to be
adjusted.
Connect an oscilloscope (preferred) or a monitor
(acceptable) to local output (VGA ouptut) 1.
8.
If using an oscilloscope, apply a white field test pattern to
the input to be optimized via an MTP transmitter.
2.
Connect the two cables to the included MTP signal
generator.
3.
If the input cable between the transmitter and the MTPX
Plus is longer than 300' (90 m), place the MTP signal
generator’s Pre-Peak switch on (up).
If using a monitor, apply a grayscale or Color Bars
test pattern to the input to be optimized via an MTP
transmitter.

11. Observe the oscilloscope or the monitor with a critical
eye while you adjust the input level/peaking setting to
compensate for signal loss between the transmitter and the
MTPX.
After a few moments, the program reports whether or not
the calibration succeeded and the original and new settings
for the input level/peaking adjustment.
12. If necessary, repeat steps 7 through 11 for each input.
5.
Disconnect the power and RJ-45 cables from the MTP
