Anaheim, California (30 October 2008) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce two new models of the popular MLC 52 Series Basic MediaLink® Controllers designed to mount in a standard two-gang European junction box. Both models feature metal faceplates and are now also available in a new elegant and sophisticated Brushed Aluminum finish that complements a wide range of environments. The MLC 52 RS EU and MLC 52 RS VC EU MediaLink Controllers act as extended remote control panels, providing user-friendly control for a display's power and input selection. The MLC 52 RS VC EU also features an integrated volume control knob for use with Extron's popular MPA 122 Mini Power Amplifier. These new control panels are easy to configure using one of the hundreds of serial and IR device drivers found on the Extron Web site.

"We are continuing to expand our wide range of architectural mounting options for the European market in order to give installers additional flexibility," says Rainer Stiehl, Vice President of Marketing, EMEA for Extron. "These new compact control panels in the EU form factor are ideal for budget-conscious classroom and conference room presentation systems."

The MLC 52 RS EU and MLC 52 RS VC EU offer a central point of control for a display device's key functions, eliminating the need for a handheld IR remote control and making system operation much more efficient. With the MLC 52 Series controllers, there are no misplaced remotes to search for, no confusing menus to navigate, and no dead batteries to replace.

No matter what brand of display is installed in each presentation venue, MediaLink Controllers always provide a consistent control method from room to room. Presenters with little or no training can walk into any MediaLink equipped classroom and operate the AV system with minimal effort.
