Gefen EXT-MFP Description

The Gefen EXT-MFP Multi-Format Audio/Video Processor is a compact and powerful presentation switcher with cutting edge format conversion and scaling abilities. It supports input and output resolutions up to 1080p Full HD and 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), with HDCP. Its unique features include an intuitive and elegant web server interface, an easy-to-use On Screen Display (OSD), IP (Telnet and UDP) control, RS-232 control, IR control, independently password-protected user and administrator access, advanced EDID management, a wide variety of video inputs including Mac and PC compatible DisplayPort, independent and configurable audio and video routing, input selection via contact closure, assignable input naming, and a compact form factor that can be surface or rack mounted, or placed on a shelf. The EXT-MFP features full compatibility with the Gefen Syner-G™ software, including Discovery, Show-Me, and IP configuration. It is a complete and cost-effective solution for managing video and audio in classrooms, conference rooms, command centers, and as the backbone of any other high performance system that needs to interface with multiple sources, AV formats, and resolutions in a dynamic environment.

How It Works

If the unit is to be placed on a shelf, attach the included self-adhesive rubber feet to the bottom of the unit. If two units are to be mounted in a standard 19-inch wide rack using the Gefen EXT-RACK-1U-GRY (available separately), attach the EXT-MFP on the EXT-RACK-1U-GRY using the two machine screws provided. The Multi-Format Processor can also be surface-mounted using the included L-Brackets. Attach these brackets to the sides of the EXT-MFP, using the four machine screws provided, two per side. For more information, see the user manual. Each of the following inputs is available on the EXT-MFP: HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, VGA, and Composite. Connect these inputs to compatible AV or video sources, using high quality cables specific to each format and resolution. Connect up to two displays or downstream equipment to the HDMI and DVI outputs. Connect up to two digital audio sources to Optical and Coax inputs. Connect up to two analog audio sources to the L/R 1 and L/R 2 inputs using 3.5mm mini-stereo cables. This product can be controlled via the front panel push buttons or the included IR remote control, in conjunction with its on screen display. It can also be controlled via its web server interface, IP control (Telnet or UDP), or RS-232. To facilitate independent IR control of multiple units of EXT-MFP installed in close proximity, the handheld remote can be programmed via its DIP switches to output 4 distinct sets of IR codes, and the Multi-Format processor can be programmed though its OSD, web server interface, Telnet/UDP, or RS-232 to respond to these specific sets of commands. Please see the user manual for further details. To control the unit via IR, point the remote towards the display of the unit. If the Multi-Format Processor is not located within the line of sight of the handheld remote, attach a Gefen EXT-RMT-EXTIRN IR Extender to its IR Ext port and install it in a location where it can receive the IR commands. For IP control, connect a CAT-5 cable from your Local Area Network to the IP Control port. For RS-232 control, connect the a DB-9 cable from the EXT-MFP to an automation control device. Connect the included power supply to the 12V DC power supply jack and to an available electrical outlet. To remove the power supply plug from the unit, disengage the lock by pulling back on its plastic sleeve. Press and release the Power button to toggle between On and Standby modes. When the processor is powered-on, the Power LED will glow in blue. A red power LED indicates that the unit is in Standby. The audio/video LED indicators on the front of the processor will glow bright green when the corresponding input is selected.
