Extron is already shipping its new IN1608 IPCP with built-in Extron IP Link Pro control processors. The IN1608 IPCP is a scaling and presentation switcher, together, that includes an HDCP-compliant, multi-format video switcher, Extron’s scaling engine, an integrated DTP transmitter and receivers for signal extension up to 330 feet (100 meters), a mono or stereo amplifier, DSP audio processing, and an advanced control processor that is expandable.
The IN1608 IPCP features a built-in IP Link Pro control processor, with the same features, processing power, and technologies found in the standalone Extron IPCP Pro control processors. The IN1608 IPCP delivers high-speed processing and 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 touchpanel to the built-in Gigabit Ethernet switch to create a complete AV control system.
The IN1608 IPCP is can be configured with Extron’s Global Configurator software and features conditional logic, local variables, and macros as well as scalability with Controller Groups, a unique feature that allows an IN1608 IPCP to be combined with additional IP Link Pro processors to create a large-scale control system.
With the purchase of an Extron LinkLicense with the IN1608 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 seamlessly 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.
