DESCRIPTION
Features
The MPX 866 A is a media presentation matrix switcher that combines
three switchers in a single, compact enclosure: an 8x6 VGA switcher; a
6x6 composite video and S-video switcher; and a 14x6 audio switcher.
n 300 MHz (-3 dB) RGB video bandwidth, fully loaded – Designed
for routing most common high resolution computer-video rates
without signal degradation. The MPX 866 A provides a minimum
300 MHz (-3 dB) of RGB video bandwidth at full performance
capability when one input drives all outputs.
The MPX 866 A provides outputs to match the VGA, S-video, and
composite video inputs found on many projectors. To simplify video
signal routing, the MPX 866 A is capable of encoding S-video to
composite video and decoding composite video to S-video.
The MPX 866 A provides an ideal, one-box solution for many
presentation systems or divisible-room applications, where multiple
displays or a variety of room configurations must be supported.
VGA Switcher
As an 8x6 VGA switcher, the MPX 866 A features 300 MHz (-3 dB)
RGB video bandwidth, fully loaded. This ensures that the MPX 866 A
delivers exceptionally high performance when routing high resolution
computer-video. All inputs and outputs are on female 15-pin HD
connectors. The VGA switcher is compatible with RGBHV, RGBS, RGsB,
RsGsBs, and component analog video formats.
Composite Video and S-Video Switcher
The 6x6 video switcher integrated into the MPX 866 A offers
150 MHz (-3 dB) video bandwidth, fully loaded. All inputs and
outputs are on female BNC connectors. Two inputs are configured for
composite video only while four of the inputs can accept composite
video or S-video.
n 150 MHz (-3 dB) video bandwidth, fully loaded – Ensures
switching and distribution of composite and S-video signals without
degradation. The MPX 866 A provides a minimum 150 MHz (-3 dB)
of video bandwidth at full performance capability when one input
drives all outputs.
n Video genlock (composite video and S-video only) – Allows for
vertical interval switching and enables smooth, seamless transitions
when switching between synchronous video sources.
n Bi-directional video transcoding – Encodes S-video to composite
video and decodes composite video to S-video.
n High quality digital decoder with time base stabilization –
Broadcast-quality digital decoder eliminates jitter, dot crawl, and
other decoding artifacts while also stabilizing and improving the
video from older analog VCRs or worn videotapes. This feature
applies to composite to S-video decoded signals only.
n Audio input gain and attenuation – Allows users to set the level of
audio gain or attenuation for each audio input channel, eliminating
noticeable differences when switching between sources.
When switching between video inputs, vertical interval switching
is possible for smooth, seamless transitions between synchronous
video sources. Two outputs are configured for encoding S-video to
composite video while the other two outputs will decode composite
video to S-video. The video switcher is compatible with NTSC 3.58,
NTSC 4.43, PAL, and SECAM video standards.
n Audio output volume control – Can be set dynamically for each
channel through the front panel, IP Link, or serial control, eliminating
the need for audio preamplifiers in many system designs.
Audio Switcher
The MPX 866 A also includes a 14x6 audio switcher, with all inputs
and outputs on captive screw connectors. Audio can be switched
independently from any video group. The MPX 866 A supports both
audio follow video and audio breakaway modes. Full adjustment of
both audio input gain and attenuation and audio output volume and
muting is available via the front panel, RS-232, or IP Link.
n QS-FPC™ - QuickSwitch Front Panel Controller – Provides a
discrete button for each input and output, allowing for simple,
intuitive operation.
All audio adjustments can be saved when the unit is shut down. When
the switcher is powered back up, it recalls the last configuration and
the saved audio settings are restored. The advanced audio capabilities
of the MPX 866 A facilitate system integration by eliminating the need
for separate audio preamplifiers in many system designs, which, in
turn, contributes to an overall savings in equipment expense.
Front Panel and RS-232 Control Options
The MPX Plus 866 A is equipped with both primary and secondary RS-232
serial ports for divided room applications. An RS-232 configuration
port is featured on the front panel of the MPX Plus 866 A to enable
easy configuration without having to access the switcher’s rear panel.
IP Link Ethernet Control
The MPX 866 A is equipped with Extron’s IP Link, an intelligent
network solution specifically engineered to meet the needs of
professional A/V environments – from K-12 classrooms to large
universities, businesses, and residential media systems.
n Audio Breakaway – Provides the capability to break an audio
signal away from its corresponding video signal, allowing the audio
channels to be operated as a separate matrix switcher.
n Global presets – Thirty-two global presets can be saved and
recalled, with 26 presets accessible via the front panel. This timesaving feature allows you to set up I/O configurations and store
them in memory for future use.
n RS-232 front panel control port – Using serial commands, the
MPX 866 A can be controlled and configured via the Extron
Windows®-based control program, or integrated into third-party
control systems. Extron products use the SIS™ - Simple Instruction
Set command protocol, a set of basic ASCII code commands that
allow for quick and easy programming.
n IP Link Ethernet monitoring and control – Engineered to meet
the needs of professional A/V environments, IP Link enables the
MPX 866 A to be proactively monitored and managed over a LAN,
WAN, or the Internet, using standard TCP/IP protocols. IP Link provides
for remote selection of input and output ties, adjustment and control
of audio input and output levels, and advanced system diagnostics.
n Front panel security lockout – Prevents unauthorized use in
non-secure environments.
n Rack-mountable – 2U, full rack width metal enclosure.
n Internal international power supply – Provides worldwide
power compatibility.
