Anaheim, California (October 9, 2006) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the MLC 104 IP Plus. MediaLink Controller, designed to centralize control of a classroom presentation system. The MLC 104 IP Plus combines the best features, expandability, and value for easy-to-use classroom AV control. New features in the MLC 104 IP Plus include support for optional Extron IRCMs – Infrared Control Modules for controlling sources, such as VCRs and DVD players, and three digital I/O ports for controlling switches and relays. The MLC 104 IP Plus simplifies and standardizes the AV system user control interface. MediaLink controllers eliminate the need for multiple handheld IR remotes that can be lost or stolen; there no batteries to wear out, and no confusing menus to memorize. "Professors with little or no training can walk into any multimedia classroom equipped with the MLC 104 IP Plus and operate the AV system" says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing for Extron. "Installers will appreciate how simple and easy MediaLink products are to install, configure, and maintain. No computer programming knowledge is required." The MLC 104 IP Plus features built-in IP Link® Ethernet control and is configurable using Extron's free Global Configurator software which makes installation as simple as selecting choices from intuitive, drop-down menus instead of writing, compiling, and de-bugging complicated programming. The MLC104 IP Plus also supports GlobalViewer, Extron's free Web-based campus-wide AV resource management and remote control software application that provides a powerful, flexible way to manage, monitor and control MediaLink products. The MSRP price for the MLC 104 IP Plus is $1,090.00. Visit the press area of our Web site at www.extron.com/press for more information.
