Extron Electronics, a world leading manufacturer of audio visual and enterprise solutions, have recently announced the availability of what they describe as an easy to use workspace controller. Named the Extron HD CTL 100, the company state that the new solution is designed for automatic display control in small meeting rooms and huddle spaces.
In order to deliver ease of installation, the Extron HD CTL 100 boasts ‘Plug and Play automation’, with no remotes to lose and no buttons to press. When an active signal is connected to the HDMI input, the HD CTL 100 automatically turns on the display and selects the correct input via CEC control.
To provide greater flexibility and to suit a wider range of applications, the new controller also easily integrates with Extron’s OCS 100 occupancy sensor to automatically power the system on when users enter the room. Support for wireless BYOD convenience, what’s more, can be added by connecting a ShareLink wireless collaboration gateway.
Speaking about the newly available workspace controller, Extron’s vice president of worldwide sales and marketing, Casey Hall, explained how it fits in with the company’s existing enterprise solutions:
‘The HD CTL 100 is the latest in our growing family of compact, powerful collaboration tools designed to add convenience and increase efficiency within today’s modern meeting spaces…The HD CTL 100 is ideal for small collaboration spaces where it can automatically switch display inputs and control display power while remaining tucked away out of sight.’
