Extron Electronics introduced the MLC Plus 84 EU and MLC Plus 84 MK. These easy-to-use, two-gang Ethernet controllers are used for controlling common AV functions such as power, input switching, and volume.

As part of the new MediaLink Plus Series, these controllers are designed with more powerful features, enhanced security, and Ethernet control. They each have nine 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 controllers to receive power and communications over a single Ethernet cable. They are 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,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “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.’

The MLC Plus 84 EU and MLC Plus 84 MK are configured using Extron Global Configurator Plus or Global Configurator Professional software. They also integrate seamlessly with Extron’s award-winning GlobalViewer Enterprise software and Free GlobalViewer Web application for complete AV resource monitoring, management, and control over a computer network. The MLC Plus 84 EU mounts in a two gang size European junction box, and the MLC Plus 84 MK mounts in a two gang MK junction box.
