Anaheim, California (February 8, 2017) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the IPCP Pro 255, a compact, high performance IP Link Pro control processor with a dedicated AV LAN port.It features advanced security standards and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, which ensure compatibility with multiple TouchLink® Pro touchpanels using a standard network infrastructure. Of the two Ethernet ports, the AV LAN is designed to control local AV devices, and safeguard them from outside intrusion or interference. The IPCP Pro 255 can be used with Extron LinkLicense®, which further enhances the capabilities of Extron Pro Series control systems. The IPCP Pro 255 is an ideal choice for controlling multiple devices and control signal types within AV systems requiring an isolated AV network.

"We are excited to add the IPCP Pro 255 to our growing line or IP Link Pro control processors," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "Just like it's larger sibling, the IPCP Pro 555, this control processor is well-suited for any presentation environment, but is ideal for demanding AV environments where having a segragated AV LAN can help protect valuable data from outside intrusion."

The IPCP Pro 255 features a DHCP server for the AV LAN that streamlines system setup and management. It automatically distributes IP addresses and network configuration parameters for the AV devices connected to the local AV LAN. The AV LAN port permits communications from the Ethernet port for remote management and firmware updates for Extron devices, and restricts other Ethernet traffic. The Extron IPCP Pro 255 can be configured using Global Configurator Plus or Global Configurator Professional software or programmed using Extron Global Scripter. For enterprise-wide applications, GlobalViewer® Enterprise can provide centralized AV resource monitoring, management, and control over a computer network.
