Anaheim, California (March 20, 2014) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Extron DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP, a new model of the DTP CrossPoint 84 featuring a built-in IP Link Pro control processor for complete and powerful AV system control. The industry-leading DTP CrossPoint 84 is the new go-to product for presentation systems. This highly versatile, compact presentation matrix switcher delivers all of the technologically advanced capabilities necessary to design and integrate a complete AV system in one box, including a 4K matrix switcher, two built-in independent scalers, integrated DTP and XTP transmitters and receivers, a high performance mono or stereo amplifier, comprehensive audio DSP capabilities unmatched in the industry, and an advanced control processor that is uniquely expandable. The DTP CrossPoint 84 is the new industry standard for fully integrated AV systems, greatly simplifying system design and installation, and dramatically reducing total cost of ownership.

We are very excited to be offering the DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP, an industry-leading 4K presentation switcher like no other for delivering total system integration, including control of an entire AV system," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The DTP CrossPoint 84 now includes a built-in IP Link Pro control processor with the most powerful, advanced capabilities available in a configurable control system. It can even be expanded to create large-scale control systems – an industry-first from Extron."

The DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP features a built-in Extron IP Link Pro control processor, with the same advanced features, processing power, and breakthrough technologies found in the standalone Extron IPCP Pro control processors. The DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP delivers high-speed processing and abundant control port capacity for complete, customizable control of an entire AV system, including all source devices and displays, plus room functions. Simply connect an Extron TouchLink Pro touchpanel to the built-in Gigabit Ethernet switch to create a complete AV control system.

As with all Extron control systems, the DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP is very intuitive and easy to configure with Global Configurator software. The latest version of Global Configurator includes powerful, advanced features such as conditional logic, local variables, and macros. Global Configurator Professional adds unprecedented scalability with Controller Groups, a unique feature that allows a DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP to be combined with additional IP Link Pro processors to create a large-scale control system. This is ideal for controlling multiple systems, rooms, or even remote locations around the world. DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP systems throughout a facility, building, campus, or offices worldwide can be monitored and managed using Extron GlobalViewer Enterprise server-based software.

With the purchase of an Extron LinkLicense with the DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP, a tablet or laptop can serve as the primary control interface for the AV system. A unique benefit of LinkLicense is the ability to use Extron GUI Designer software to design interfaces for specific user roles in an organization. LinkLicense works seamlessly with Extron's TouchLink for iPad app, and allows an interface to be duplicated to many additional devices. It simplifies deployment of AV system control for BYOD with a single license purchase per system and no per-user fees, and allows a standardized BYOD strategy for AV control across an organization.
