Extron recently introduced their new Touchlink Pro control systems—an all-in-one AV solution that combines a TouchLink Pro touchpanel with an integrated IP Link Pro control processor. Multiple devices can be controlled directly from the Ethernet port and the included port expansion adapter makes it easy to add traditional control ports when needed, directly to the touchpanel.
The port expansion adapter provides convenient control directly from the touchpanel, with two bi-directional RS-232 ports, one digital input, one IR port, and two relays. These new TouchLink Pro control systems can be customized using Extron GUI Designer software, which provides ready-to-use templates. They are configured using Extron’s Global Configurator Plus or Global Configurator Professional software. All TouchLink Pro control systems integrate with Extron’s GlobalViewer Enterprise software for complete AV resource monitoring, management, and control over a computer network. Features in future releases of TouchLink Pro control systems include support for programming, LinkLicense, and controller grouping.
