Extron Adds New 5″ Wall Mount Touch Panel

Extron just introduced the TLP Pro 525M 5″ wall mount TouchLink Pro touch panel. The TouchLink Pro touch panel has been redesigned with a new, high-performance quad-core processor, eight times more memory and an 800×480 capacitive touchscreen built with scratch and smudge-resistant edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass. The TLP Pro 525M also features PoE – Power over Ethernet, which allows it to receive power and communication over one Ethernet cable.

Extron says the TLP Pro 525M is built for today with an eye on the future. With its improved graphics engine, quad-core processor and increased RAM, you’ll see faster background graphic loads and crisper page flips. These enhancements offer an enhanced user experience now, while providing ample memory and processing power to support exciting new features and capabilities in the future via firmware updates. Three new mounting accessories, the RWM 2 Recessed Wall Mount, SMK 2 Surface Mount Kit and the RM5 Rack Mount kit all aid integration while providing a broad variety of mounting options. All TouchLink Pro touch panels can be customized using Extron GUI Designer software. This interface design software offers ready-to-use templates for a wide variety of rooms and presentation environments.
