Extron today announced it will work with Dolby on enabling the Dolby Conference Phone to operate seamlessly with the Extron Pro Series AV control solutions. This extends Extron control capabilities to the Dolby Conference Phone, providing complete AV and conferencing control for the modern meeting space. When incorporated with an Extron Pro Series control system, a simple tap on a TouchLink Pro Touchpanel will control call volume as well as send commands that trigger automation events for display control, shades, lighting and more. Occupancy sensors can also be added to automate system power to turn on displays when participants enter a room.
In addition to room AV control, this scalable technology includes Extron audio signal processors and digital video switching and distribution for a unified collaboration solution. Extron says meeting attendees will benefit from a significant expansion of meeting collaboration features while enjoying the convenience of AV room control, all from familiar user interfaces.
