Extron is shipping the IPCP Pro S1 xi compact control processor, which is designed for centralized AV control in small to medium-size applications. Extron says the IPCP Pro S1 xi features greater processing power and twice the memory of the P 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. This ensures compatibility with multiple TouchLink Pro touch panels, Network Button Panels and IPL EXP expansion interfaces using a standard network infrastructure. The IPCP Pro S1 xi is an option for AV applications that require a compact control processor.
The Extron IPCP Pro S1 xi can be configured using Global Configurator Plus or Global Configurator Professional software. It also can be 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.
