Extron Electronics has introduced the MLC Plus 84 D, which is an easy-to-use, two-gang Ethernet controller used for controlling common AV functions such as power, input switching, and volume.
As part of the new MediaLink Plus Series, it is designed with more powerful features, enhanced security, and Ethernet control. It has 11 backlit soft touch buttons and a variety of ports and inputs, including a remote volume control port for use with select Extron amplifiers. Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows the controller to receive power and communications over a single Ethernet cable. It is ideal for use in single display applications or anywhere that centralised, pushbutton AV control is needed.
“The MLC Plus 84 series are Extron’s first pushbutton controllers that can take advantage of advanced configuration options within our new GC Plus and GC Pro software. They are also the first of their kind to include Ethernet control for a wide variety of AV devices that can be remotely controlled from anywhere on the client’s network,’ says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron.
The MLC Plus 84 D is configured using Extron Global Configurator Plus or Global Configurator Professional software. It also integrates seamlessly with Extron’s GlobalViewer Enterprise software for complete AV resource monitoring, management, and control over a computer network. The MLC Plus 84 D mounts in a two-gang junction box, and includes a white Decora-style wallplate.
