Extron today introduced Extron Control, a new app that gives users complete access to any Extron control system, directly from their iPad.
After initial setup, the iPad connects to the desired room allowing for a seamless, responsive control experience. The app automatically loads the user interfaces present on any Extron control product without a lengthy setup and customisation process.
The familiar interfaces emulate the TouchLink touchpanel or MediaLink controllers in a room, as all button presses are kept in sync between the app and any Extron Control devices.
Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron, said: "Based on customer feedback, we combined MediaLink for iPad and TouchLink for iPad into one powerful control solution. With this one new app, you'll be able to control multiple touchpanels and button panels from any location within your wireless network."
Other features of the Extron Control app include the ability to quickly add rooms and switch between rooms, and auto-reconnect, which recalls the previous session even after the app is closed. The app is compatible with projects created in Extron Global Configurator 3.5 or Global Configurator Plus and Professional.
Extron Control is available for download from the iTunes App Store. Existing users of the TouchLink App will automatically receive Extron Control when they update. Since MediaLink for iPad will be retired after the introduction of the new app, Extron is offering educational institutions special pricing on the Control App through the Apple volume pricing programme.
