Extron Intros Enterprise A/V Software

Extron Electronics has introduced GlobalViewer Enterprise, a new server-based software for managing and supporting larger A/V installations using a Web browser. It provides an easy upgrade path for existing users of Extron's free GlobalViewer Web application using configuration wizards, not programming. Compatible with any Web browser, GlobalViewer Enterprise provides enhanced help desk functionality, enterprise-wide global scheduling and monitoring, time-stamped A/V system data collection for reporting, and also supports integration of rooms controlled by other programmable control systems, such as AMX and Crestron. The easy-to-use interface offers a view of the entire enterprise in a single window and access to detailed room data with just a click of a mouse.

"GlobalViewer Enterprise is built on Extron's philosophy of delivering configuration-based control solutions and, therefore, does not require any programming knowledge," says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing for Extron Electronics. "It represents a step up in both scale and sophistication from our free GlobalViewer Web application."

Built on Microsoft .NET technology, GlobalViewer Enterprise integrates seamlessly with third-party schedule/resource management software for viewing room availability and managing meeting schedules. Additional features include WebCam support for help desk applications, proactive firmware management capabilities, and user-definable hotlists for keeping track of vital system administration tasks. GlobalViewer Enterprise offers the security and power needed to remotely manage large IP Link-enabled A/V installations that span not only buildings, but cities, states, and countries.
