Extron GUI Configurator is an intuitive design tool that makes creating and maintaining Extron TouchLink® touchpanel user interfaces easy, even for those without graphic design skills. Begin with ready-to-use design templates, or start from scratch and build your own layout using our comprehensive software. The touchscreen design templates are fully customizable and matched carefully to popular AV system applications. In many cases, all the input sources, display control, and environmental settings are already in place. Each template is fully developed and includes complete, detailed documentation of its application and capabilities.

Ready-to-use Templates

GUI Configurator software includes ready-to-use templates for single display rooms, dual display rooms, divisible rooms, multi-image systems, and videoconference suites

Since system designs vary, our templates can be customized to suit the specific needs of any application. GUI Configurator’s intuitive design environment enables a wide variety of design choices for buttons, colors, logos, font styles, and more.

Start From Scratch and Design Your Own Layout

A wide array of design options enables users to develop their own touchscreen layouts to meet almost any system requirement.

GUI Configurator software’s resource library of shapes, graphics, and sounds provide a wide variety of choices for design of pages and pop ups to provide transport controls, multi-state buttons, 3D effects, video windows, dynamic text, and more. In addition, users can import their own images and audio files into GUI Configurator and use the resource management tool to provide further customization capabilities. The Designer Window displays the layout design in progress, so the changes can be seen while the customization occurs.

Upload Finished Designs to TouchLink Touchpanel

Once the touchscreen layout design is completed, the process for uploading the design files to a TouchLink Touchpanel is simple. GUI Configurator connects to one or more TouchLink Touchpanels over the network for uploading the layout project data. In addition, project data can be saved to disk for future use.
