The MPS 409 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. Three selectable switching modes–Combine Switcher, Single Switcher, and Separate Switcher–include the ability to route all DVI and HDMI sources to the display via single HDMI cable, offering added flexibility.

The EDID Minder provides continuous EDID communications between the HDMI, DVI, and VGA sources and the display device, and offers reliable display of video, says the company. HDMI and DVI inputs and outputs are HDCP compliant.

The new presentation switcher also offers a variety of audio control features, including front-panel mic and program audio output volume controls that allow for easy and separate adjustment of mic and program audio volumes. Audio input gain and attenuation allows users to set individual audio input levels so there are fewer noticeable volume differences when switching between sources. The mic talk over feature automatically reduces program audio when it detects a microphone signal, removing the need for a separate, stand-alone audio ducking processor.

The MPS 409 is suited to use in single-display applications that require a hybrid switcher for integration of digital and analog video sources and associated audio signals, including conference rooms, classrooms, training facilities, and rental/staging. It is expected to begin shipping this month.
