Anaheim, Calif. -Extron recently introduced its Global Configurator Professional software, which is used to manage control systems and applications that range in scope from single projector classrooms to large, elaborate control system designs. The new software included features such as conditional logic and variables, and uses macros to provide flexibility for more sophisticated control scenarios.

The Controller Groups feature expands AV system design potential for much larger systems requiring multiple IP Link Pro control processors. Global Configurator Professional promises advanced configuration capabilities, enhanced features and streamlined integration to control system design.

“We designed Global Configurator Professional based on the needs of integrators who demand advanced configuration software that can handle a broad range of AV applications,” said Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron. “Using Global Configurator Professional software in conjunction with our new IP Link Pro control processors and TouchLink Pro touchpanels, you can unleash the full potential of your next control system design.”

Global Configurator Professional is a good choice for configuring Extron Pro Series control systems. Conditional logic allows advanced functionality by making “if” and “else” statements available. With the help of conditional logic, one can easily set up operations that are dependent upon occurrence and non-occurrence of certain events.

The Controller Groups feature allows up to four IP Link Pro control processors to be grouped and work as one big controller. This feature targets advanced systems that require more control ports than are offered in a single control processor. A new class of drivers brings greater AV system performance and capabilities. Global Configurator Professional also features new serial-over-Ethernet drivers that expand control capability through devices such as Extron XTP Systems.
