MLC 52 MediaLink Controller

Extron's MLC 52 MediaLink Controllers are economical control panels for A/V control in classroom environments. All four models are designed for controlling displays via IR, while RS models also offer unidirectional RS-232 serial control capabilities. The MLC 52 Series allows staff members with little or no training to walk into a multimedia classroom and operate the A/V system with ease.

In this course, you'll learn everything you need to know about setting up and configuring the Extron MLC 52 MediaLink Controller — from downloading and installing the software to adding commands to the controller's front panel buttons. If you are new to the MLC 52, we recommend you work your way through the topics in order as they appear, as each topic builds on the previous one. This course is designed to allow you to learn at your own pace, so take your time and feel free to repeat any section at any time. If you have some experience with the MLC 52, you can simply click on any topic you like and start from there.
