Anaheim, California (February 2, 2011) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the IPCP 505 and IPCP 305, two new IP Link® control processors, designed to support larger configurable control systems. These control processors integrate Ethernet connectivity into AV systems, giving users the ability to remotely control, monitor, and troubleshoot AV equipment, including display devices and switchers. With a high-performance embedded Web server, multiple bidirectional serial ports, relays, flex I/O ports, including Ethernet and an eBUS™ port, these control processors are ideal for applications that require control for multiple devices within a large-scale AV system. Bidirectional ports provide simultaneous two-way control and monitoring of serially controlled devices such as displays, switchers, and other AV equipment.
"With the IPCP 505 and IPCP 305, Extron is meeting requests for configurable control that supports larger, more complex AV systems," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "Integrators will appreciate the larger capacity of the IPCP 505, as well as the increased capabilities of both control processors when used in conjunction with Extron's new Global Configurator 4 configuration software."
The IPCP 505 and IPCP 305 are configured with the free, easy-to-use Global Configurator software. Using Free GlobalViewer® Web-based AV resource management and remote control application, users can manage, monitor, and control both Extron and third-party equipment such as projectors, displays, computer monitors, VCRs, and DVD players. Additionally, the new processors can interface with other network-enabled devices. Each control processor can communicate with up to six TouchLink™ interfaces over a standard Ethernet network, allowing utilization of existing network infrastructure. They integrate seamlessly with Extron’s award-winning GlobalViewer Enterprise software and Free GlobalViewer Web application for complete AV resource monitoring, management, and control over a computer network.
