Anaheim, California (Jan 12, 2015) - Extron is pleased to introduce Extron Control, a new app that gives users complete access to any Extron control system, directly from their iPad. After a quick initial setup, the iPad connects to the desired room, allowing for a seamless, highly-responsive control experience. The app automatically loads the user interfaces present on any Extron control product without a lengthy setup and customization process. The familiar interfaces emulate the TouchLink touchpanel or MediaLink controllers in your room, as all button presses are kept in sync between the app and your Extron control devices. Extron Control is available for download from the iTunes App Store. Existing users of the TouchLink App will automatically receive Extron Control when they update. Since MediaLink for iPad will be retired, Extron is offering education institutions special pricing on the Control App through the Apple Volume Pricing Program.

"Based on customer feedback, we combined MediaLink for iPad and TouchLink for iPad into one powerful control solution," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "With this one new app, you'll be able to control multiple touchpanels and button panels from any location within your wireless network."

Other powerful features include the ability to quickly add rooms and switch between rooms, and auto-reconnect which recalls the previous session even after the app is closed. Technicians will appreciate this new app as it supplements the control of any room and provides easy access for troubleshooting. Extron Control is compatible with projects created in Extron Global Configurator 3.5 or Global Configurator Plus and Professional.
