Extron introduces iPad Control App for TouchLink and MediaLink

AUTHOR: Inavate

Extron has introduced Extron Control, a new app that gives users complete access to any Extron control system directly from their iPad.

Extron Control allows an iPad to connect to the desired room and assume control. The app also automatically loads the user interfaces present on any Extron control product on to the iPad. The interfaces emulate the TouchLink touchpanel or MediaLink controllers in your room and all button presses are kept in sync between the app and your Extron control devices.

Other features include the ability to add rooms and switch between rooms as well as auto-reconnect which recalls the previous session even after the app is closed. Extron Control 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, Extron is offering education institutions special pricing on the Control App through the Apple Volume Pricing Program.
