The What Else: In addition to increases in performance, these new processors feature advanced security standards and gigabit Ethernet, which ensures compatibility with multiple TouchLink Pro touchpanels and Network Button Panels using a standard network infrastructure.

The IPCP Pro xi Series can be configured using Global Configurator Plus or Global Configurator Professional software or programmed using Extron Global Scripter. For enterprise-wide applications, GlobalViewer Enterprise can provide centralized AV resource monitoring, management, and control over a computer network. In addition, the IPCP Pro xi Series supports Extron LinkLicense, which further enhances the capabilities of Extron Pro Series control systems. These compact control processors come in quarter rack and half-rack sizes, and the DIN rail mount option for additional mounting flexibility.

“We are very excited to offer our new IPCP Pro xi Series, our most powerful control processors to date,” said Casey Hall, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Extron. “With eight models to choose from, it's easy to match the right IPCP Pro xi control processor to your application."

The Bottom Line: With up to four times more memory and significantly-enhanced processing power for increased deployment speeds and improved runtime functionality, this new series is designed to excel in even the most demanding AV applications.
