Extron MPS 409 - Media Presentation Switcher
Five switchers in one enclosure:- 3x1 HDMI switcher
- 2x1 DVI switcher
- 2x1 VGA/HDTV component video switcher
- 2x1 composite video switcher
- 9x1 analog stereo audio switcher
- The Extron MPS 409 is a multi-format presentation switcher for digital and analog signals. It combines five independent switchers in a single compact enclosure: 3x1 HDMI with embedded audio, 2x1 DVI, 2x1 VGA/HDTV component video, 2x1 composite video, and 9x1 analog stereo audio.
- The MPS 409 features three selectable switching modes, including the ability to route all DVI and HDMI sources to the display using a single HDMI cable.
- Continuous EDID communications between the DVI and VGA sources and the display device ensures the reliable display of video. HDMI and DVI inputs and outputs are HDCP compliant, ensuring display of content protected media.
- The MPS 409 is ideal for use in single-display applications that require a hybrid switcher for integration of digital and analog video sources and associated audio signals.
- Switcher Modes
- Multiple switcher modes provide flexible signal routing capabilities to address the varying system switching environments. Users can choose among three switcher modes: Combine Switcher, Single Switcher, and Separate Switcher modes.
- Combine Switcher mode – Allows up to five HDMI and DVI source devices to be routed to a single HDMI-enabled digital display. Analog audio connected through the 3.5 mm stereo jack, from the corresponding digital video input, is routed to the local and program audio outputs. This mode can be used when the switcher is in Separate or Single Switcher mode.
- Single Switcher mode — Allows one-touch switching. When one of the nine inputs is selected, video and associated audio input signals are routed to the outputs of its group; the selected audio is also routed to the program audio output. In this mode, outputs of the other groups are muted.
- Separate Switcher mode — Allows independent switching of any given group. This effectively segregates switching operations so that the MPS 409 becomes four separate video switchers. While operating in separate switcher mode the program audio can be output from any group, while cueing up for another group, without interruption.
