Extron Introduces New HDCP-Compliant Multi-Window Processors

Enables simultaneous display of multiple images on a single screen

Anaheim, California (April 15, 2013) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the MGP 462 Pro and MGP 464 Pro, two new powerful, high resolution multi-window processors that enable the simultaneous display of multiple images on a single screen - two windows for the MGP 462 Pro and four windows for the MGP 464 Pro. Full HDCP compliance at all HDMI inputs and outputs assures worry-free presentation of protected content. The MGP Pro also provides two simultaneous outputs that generate HDMI and RGBHV video, simplifying integration with different display devices. The MGP 462 Pro and MGP 464 Pro are ideal for applications that require side-by-side display of critical quality graphics and video content from multiple sources.


"With HDMI input and output capability on the MGP 462 Pro and MGP 464 Pro, integrators and their customers can display HDCP-encrypted content in multiple windows and easily incorporate digital video sources into the AV system," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "These multi-window processors include essential features that deliver fast and reliable switching for HDCP-encrypted content, providing enhanced performance and flexibility for mission critical applications."

To enhance and simplify integration of sources and displays, the MGP 462 Pro and MGP 464 Pro feature Key Minder®, an Extron-exclusive technology that authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching. In addition, the MGP Pro includes Extron's innovative Graphic Still Store, a feature that enables screen captures of the current output, or images uploaded from a PC, to be stored for use as presentation background images. Live video from an HDMI source can also serve as the background to any presentation.

For large-scale applications, two or three MGP 462 Pro or MGP 464 Pro units may be cascaded to create displays with six to 12 windows. Optional HDMI and 3G-SDI/HD-SDI inputs enable easy integration of digital video sources into AV systems, and together with the HDMI output, allow the MGP 462 Pro and MGP 464 Pro to operate within an all-digital video system.
