Extron’s new Extron DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP is a new version of the DTP CrossPoint 84 featuring a built-in IP Link Pro control processor. This compact presentation matrix switcher is really a complete AV system in one box as it includes a 4K matrix switcher, two built-in independent scalers, integrated DTP and XTP transmitters and receivers, a mono or stereo amplifier, audio DSP capabilities and an advanced control processor that is uniquely expandable — last month we broke the news that Extron entered the large-system control market.
The DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP features a built-in Extron IP Link Pro control processor, with the same advanced features, processing power and technologies found in the standalone Extron IPCP Pro control processors. The DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP delivers high-speed processing and a plethora of control port capacity for complete, customizable control of an entire AV system, including all source devices and displays, plus room functions. Simply connect an Extron TouchLink Pro touch panel to the built-in Gigabit Ethernet switch to create a complete AV control system.
As with all Extron control systems, the DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP is very intuitive and easy to configure with Global Configurator software. The latest version of Global Configurator includes powerful, advanced features such as conditional logic, local variables, and macros. Global Configurator Professional adds unprecedented scalability with Controller Groups, a unique feature that allows a DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP to be combined with additional IP Link Pro processors to create a large-scale control system. This is ideal for controlling multiple systems, rooms, or even remote locations around the world. DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP systems throughout a facility, building, campus, or offices worldwide can be monitored and managed using Extron GlobalViewer Enterprise server-based software.
With the purchase of an Extron LinkLicense with the DTP CrossPoint 84 IPCP, a tablet or laptop can serve as the primary control interface for the AV system. A benefit of LinkLicense is the ability to use Extron GUI Designer software to design interfaces for specific user roles in an organization. LinkLicense works with Extron’s TouchLink for iPad app, and allows an interface to be duplicated to many additional devices. It simplifies deployment of AV system control for BYOD with a single license purchase per system and no per-user fees, and allows a standardized BYOD strategy for AV control across an organization.
