The MPS 601 features four HDCP-compliant HDMI inputs and two RGB video inputs with analog stereo audio. RGB video and analog audio are digitized and switched through the HDMI output. The MPS 601 utilizes EDID Minder, which maintains continuous extended display identification data communication between connected devices; and Key Minder, which continuously authenticates and maintains HDCP encryption between input and output devices to ensure quick and reliable switching.

The MPS 601 offers cable equalization on each HDMI input, automatic color bit depth management, indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as peripheral device powering. It also has multiple control options, including front panel, RS-232, contact closure and auto-input switching streamline integration. Housed in a 1U half-rack width metal enclosure, the MPS 601 can be rack-mounted, installed in a lectern or mounted under a table.
