 PIP 444 Four Window Video PIP Processor 60-606-01 Retired

This product has been retired.

The Extron PIP 444 is a video picture-in-picture processor for the creation and presentation of multiple video windows on a single display. It delivers high performance video processing, and is easy to operate and configure. The PIP 444 is ideally suited for videoconferencing, distance learning, usability labs, event staging, and other applications that require the capability to simultaneously display multiple video sources on one screen.

The PIP 444 displays up to four windows within the same screen. It offers a high level of flexibility, making the PIP 444 ideal for integration into a variety of AV systems. Each window has its own dedicated input, which is fully configurable to accept composite video, S-video, or component video sources in NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.43, PAL, or SECAM. Each input also has a buffered loop-through for source monitoring.

The PIP 444 features internal video transcoding, so that picture-in-picture video is output simultaneously as composite video, S-video, and component video. The output is selectable as either NTSC 3.58 or PAL. All inputs and outputs are on BNC connectors for easy integration into AV system designs. The PIP 444 also includes video genlock for integration into CCTV and broadcast applications.

Fully customizable picture-in-picture presentations can be created with the PIP 444. Independent, fine-tuning controls are used for each window to adjust size, position, contrast/brightness, color/tint, overlay priority, and more. Window configurations can be saved to 20 available user memory presets and then quickly recalled. Additional customization features include image freeze control, background and window border color selection, and window caption text labeling.

The PIP 444 features full front panel controls for quick access to all functions. Remote configuration and control are available via RS-232 or RS-422 with the Extron SIS™ - Simple Instruction Set. The PIP 444 is firmware upgradeable for incorporation of new features and capabilities.
