Extron Readies Bigger Touch Panels
Extron this week introduced two larger, high-resolution TouchLink touch panels.
Extron TLP 1000MV
The larger, 1024x600 resolution touchscreen surface provides room for sophisticated controls and graphics. The new touch panels also incorporate an MTP Twisted Pair receiver, which accepts either S-video or composite video input over standard Cat-5 cable, enhancing connectivity and streamlining cable management. Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows the touch panels to receive power via the Ethernet connector, eliminating the need for a local power supply.
The TLP 1000MV mounts on a wall, lectern, or other flat surface, while the TLP 1000TV sits on a tabletop or on a VESA standard mount with an optional adapter.
"The new TouchLink touch panels answer our customers' requests for bigger, configurable touch panels with flexible mounting options," said Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron, in a statement. "Their larger size and higher resolutions accommodate the advanced controls needed for sophisticated applications."
GUI Configurator software makes configuration of the touch panel easy, with no graphic design skills required, Extron said. The software offers ready-to-use templates for single display rooms, dual display rooms, divisible rooms, multi-image systems, and video conference suites. The designs may be used as is, or customized for the application by changing individual graphic elements.
The TLP 1000MV and TLP 1000TV work in conjunction with any Extron IP Link Control Processor, such as the Extron IPL 500 Control Processor. The touch panels and IP Link Control Processors communicate using a standard Ethernet network, allowing utilization of existing infrastructure.
