Anaheim, California (June 11, 2014) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the IN1608 IPCP, new models within the IN1608 product family that feature built-in Extron IP Link Pro control processors for complete and powerful AV system control. The IN1608 IPCP is a highly versatile scaling presentation switcher that delivers the technologically advanced capabilities necessary to design and integrate a complete AV system in one box, including an HDCP-compliant, multi-format video switcher, an advanced scaling engine, integrated DTP transmitter and receivers for signal extension up to 330 feet (100 meters), a high performance mono or stereo amplifier, comprehensive audio processing, and an advanced control processor that is uniquely expandable. The IN1608 IPCP is the new industry standard for fully integrated AV systems, greatly simplifying system design and installation, and dramatically reducing total cost of ownership.
"The IN1608 has been extremely popular with our customers and we are very excited to be shipping the IN1608 IPCP for delivering total system integration," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "This scaling presentation switcher is now available with a built-in IP Link Pro control processor that delivers powerful capabilities for complete, customizable control of an entire AV system."
The IN1608 IPCP features a built-in 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 IN1608 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 IN1608 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 an IN1608 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. IN1608 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 IN1608 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.
