Extron just launched a tiny fully featured control system in the form of the IPCP Pro S1 xi, a control processor designed for centralized AV control in small to medium-size applications. Extron says the IPCP Pro S1 xi features enhanced performance with greater processing power and twice the memory of its IP Link Pro series. Ethernet monitoring and control allows users to manage AV devices using a standard Ethernet network. It also features one bidirectional RS-232 serial port with hardware and software handshaking, advanced security standards and Gigabit Ethernet, which ensures compatibility with multiple TouchLink Pro touch panels, Network Button Panels and IPL EXP expansion interfaces using a standard network infrastructure.
The Extron IPCP Pro S1 xi can be configured using Global Configurator Plus or Global Configurator Professional software or programmed using Extron Global Scripter. For enterprise-wide applications, GlobalViewer Enterprise can provide centralized AV resource monitoring, management and control over a computer network. In addition, the IPCP Pro S1 xi supports Extron LinkLicense, which further enhances the capabilities of Extron control systems.
