Extron ships MediaLink Controller26 January 2010
Extron Electronics has begun shipping the MLC 62 RS EU MediaLink controller.
Designed for AV equipment in classrooms and meeting facilities, it mounts in a single size European junction box.
The unit features eight customisable backlit soft touch buttons providing control capabilities for common AV functions including display power, input switching, and volume control.
The controller serves as a replacement for a display’s handheld IR remote, providing a simp0le system for a projector or flat panel display, eliminating problems related to misplaced IR remotes, confusing menus, and dead batteries.
"Like the MLC 52 series, the new MLC 62 RS EU provides a simple method of AV control, but now includes expanded control and configuration capabilities," said Rainer Stiehl, VP marketing, EMEA, for Extron. "In addition, the backlit soft touch buttons provide an elegant look that will complement any environment."
The unit offers IR and unidirectional RS-232 for universal display control, two relays for controlling screens and lights, and a digital input for interfacing with switches and sensors.
