Anaheim, California (March 12, 2014) - Extron is pleased to introduce LinkLicense, a simple way for people to use their tablet or laptop as the primary control interface in an Extron control system. LinkLicense gives integrators the freedom to choose control interfaces based on their customers’ specific needs, and gives users a much broader choice of control interfaces. All IPCP Pro control processors may be purchased with or without a LinkLicense.

"The BYOD – Bring Your Own Device trend continues to grow, and Extron has found a way of helping integrators easily add this flexibility to any Extron control system with an IPCP Pro control processor," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "LinkLicense simplifies deployment and implementation of BYOD system designs by streamlining the purchasing process for this technology, and standardizing a consistent BYOD approach across an organization."

System designers use Extron's GUI Designer software to build custom interfaces to fit the needs of the users and the resolution of the target device. A unique benefit of LinkLicense is the ability to use GUI Designer to design interfaces for specific user roles. This capability allows a technician to view a custom, power-user interface that gives him full access to all controls and functions of the system. A presenter’s interface, on the other hand, would include only the controls and functions he would typically use. All interfaces are stored on the IPCP Pro control processor and can be viewed on tablets or laptops without the need to deploy or install expensive third party Apps. LinkLicense is easily accessed through the TouchLink for iPad App, as well as any Silverlight-enabled Web browser.
