Extron Electronics, a world leading manufacturer of audio visual solutions, have recently introduced a new IP Link Pro Control Processor with device and AC power control. Named the IPCP Pro PCS1 high-performance IP Link Pro control processor, the new processor is described as being unique in combining a variety of AV control ports and the ability to supply and manage device power.
In order to provide what Extron describe as ‘worldwide compatibility’, the IPCP Pro PCS1 Processor features IEC power connectors and is rated for 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz operation. What’s more, the compact AV solution also boasts advanced security standards and Gigabit Ethernet, which ensure compatibility with multiple TouchLink Pro touchpanels using a standard network infrastructure.
As well as all of the above, the new IP Link Pro Control Processor also supports the leading AV Company’s own LinkLicense, which further enhances the capabilities of Extron Pro Series control systems. All of that, therefore, makes the IPCP Pro PCS1 an ideal choice for controlling multiple devices and control signal types, as well as device power within an AV system, according to Extron.
Casey Hall, the vice president of worldwide sales and marketing for Extron, explained exactly why that is the case:
‘The IPCP Pro PCS1 is a versatile and powerful addition to our IP Link Pro family of control processors…It’s ideal for providing centralized AV control in a broad range of presentation environments and for managing power to multiple devices. Its compact size makes it easy to fit in an equipment rack or behind a display for power management and AV control in collaboration spaces.’
