Extron Electronics recently introduced the IPCP Pro 555, a versatile, high
performance IP Link Pro control processor with a dedicated AV LAN port. It features
advanced security standards and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, which ensure
compatibility with multiple TouchLink Pro touchpanels using a standard network
infrastructure. Of the two Ethernet ports, the AV LAN is designated to control local
AV devices, and is secure from outside interference or intrusion. The IPCP Pro 555
can be used with Extron LinkLicense, which further enhances the capabilities of
Extron Pro Series control systems. The IPCP Pro 555 is an ideal choice for
controlling multiple devices and signal types within AV systems requiring an isolated
AV network.

“Extron recognizes that network security is a growing concern for our customers,”
says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “While all of our
Pro Series control processors use advanced security protocols to safeguard your
data, the new IPCP Pro 555 offers the added benefit of a dedicated AV LAN port that
further protects the AV network from intrusion and interference.”

The IPCP Pro 555 features a DHCP server for the AV LAN that streamlines system
setup and management. It automatically distributes IP addresses and network
configuration parameters for the AV devices connected to the local AV LAN. In
addition, the AV LAN port permits communications from the Ethernet port for
remote management and firmware updates for Extron devices, and restricts other
Ethernet traffic. The IPCP Pro 555 is configured using Extron Global Configurator
Plus or Global Configurator Professional, which provide powerful customization
options. It is also compatible with GlobalViewer Enterprise software for complete,
centralized AV resource monitoring, management, and control over a computer
network.
