Anaheim, CA (September 14, 2006) - Extron Electronics introduces the MPX 866 A Media Presentation Matrix Switcher. The MPX 866 A combines three matrix switchers in a single, compact enclosure: an 8x6 VGA switcher; a 6x6 composite video and S -video switcher; and a 14x6 audio switcher. It provides outputs to match the VGA, S -video, and composite video inputs found on many projectors. It is ideal for applications where a variety of signal types such as computer, video, and audio must be supported in multi -display or multi -room, residential entertainment environments.

"This unique product combines three matrix switchers in a single product which provides great flexibility for residential applications," says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing for Extron. "With so much compatibility in one box, the MPX 866 A brings a new level of design flexibility to the home theater market."
To simplify video signal routing, the MPX 866 A is equipped with a built -in video transcoder capable of decoding composite video into S -video, and encoding S -video into composite video. In addition to dual, independent serial ports, MPX 866 A control options include front panel control, a front panel serial configuration port, and Extron IP Link® Ethernet monitoring and control for device management over a LAN, WAN, or the Internet, using standard TCP/IP protocols.
