Simplified AV switching with powerful integration capabilities

If you’ve ever attended a concert seated at the rear and were unable to hear clear sound, you know how annoying it was! If you’ve attended a video conference and the image and sound did not carry, you know how helpless you felt! Audio and video that carry are a very important part of any communication process. And this is where your switcher comes into the picture.

If you want your switcher to send and receive control signals from up to 330 feet (100 metres) , then the Extron MPS 602 is the switcher for you! All MPS 602 Models Now Support DTP 330 Extenders.

The Extron MPS 602 is a simple-to-use, six input media presentation switcher for digital and analog sources. It offers digital video switching with three HDMI inputs and one DTP twisted pair input. It also offers analog video switching with two RGB inputs that are digitised for distribution to digital outputs.

For increased flexibility, the MPS 602 includes a DTP twisted pair output and an HDMI output that are switch-selectable. The DTP input and output work together with DTP endpoints to extend video, audio, and bidirectional control signals over a shielded CATx cable.

The MPS 602 also includes several audio switching and processing features, available power amplification, plus flexible control options for complete switching and distribution with local and remote display support.

DTP 330 twisted pair input and output

The DTP 330 twisted pair input on the MPS 602 can receive signals from a remote DTP 330 transmitter in areas such as a conference table, lectern, or wall for connecting a guest laptop. The DTP 330 twisted pair output can be used to transmit signals from an MPS 602 in a rack to a DTP 330 receiver behind a flat-panel display on a wall, above a ceiling-mounted projector, or any other remote location. DTP 330 transmitters and receivers are available in compact, low-profile enclosures.

The DTP 330 twisted pair input and output include additional, convenient, integrator-friendly features that help simplify installation. Bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals can be inserted from a control system and transmitted over the single CATx cable together with video and audio. This enables control of a source or display. The MPS 602 can also send power to the DTP 330 transmitter and receiver over the same CATx cable, streamlining system design and installation.

The MPS 602 features a unique independent switching capability for digital and analog RGB video sources. The MPS 602 digitises analogue RGB input signals to ensure that a reliable, high quality digital video signal is sent to the HDMI and DTP outputs. The RGB inputs can be switched independently to the local RGB output.
