Anaheim, California (June 9, 2004) - Extron Electronics announces the MLC 226 IP MediaLink® Controller with IP Link®. The MLC 226 IP is an economical and intuitive remote control panel that provides universal projector and room control in any small-scale environment, such as classrooms and boardrooms. Like other controllers in Extron's MediaLink family, it can also be combined with any of the MediaLink Switchers. In addition, the MLC 226 IP is loaded with even more innovative features, including Extron's exclusive IP Link technology, a high performance intelligent network solution specifically engineered to meet the needs of professional AV environments. "The MLC 226 IP is a great step forward in functionality," says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing for Extron. "By offering a simplified control panel in conjunction with network connected AV resource management capability, the new MediaLink controllers present end users with an easy way to control local AV system functions, and at the same time, give facility managers an impressive range of monitoring and help desk capabilities for AV installations throughout a building or even an entire campus." IP Link enables the MLC 226 IP and attached equipment to be monitored and accessed from any computer connected to a Local Area Network (LAN), Wide Area Network (WAN), or the Internet. By offering Web-based monitoring and AV resource management via a PC, PDA, or cell phone, the MLC 226 IP is able to provide proactive maintenance, event scheduling, remote technical support, and theft alerts. With an improved user interface to streamline operations, the full-featured MLC 226 IP also provides trouble-free configuration, customizable backlit buttons, room control relays, compatibility with secondary control panels, and a wide selection of mounting options.
