Extron touchpanels offer contemporary aesthetic
Extron Electronics has released two newly-designed, fully configurable 7-inch touchpanels: the TLP 710MV and TLP 710TV. Both feature a ‘contemporary’, thin bezel design, which Extron believes will complement the aesthetics of any environment.
The manufacturer reportedly designed the new models after customers asked for a touchpanel that incorporated the ‘sleek’ look and feel of Extron’s 10-inch TLP 1000 Series, but in a more compact form factor.
The touchpanels work in conjunction with any Extron IP link control processor, and are designed for use in A/V system applications that require complete, interactive control of conferencing systems, displays, switchers, and source devices.
The 710 series includes an 800 x 480 resolution touchscreen and incorporates PoE – eliminating the need for a local power supply. Each model has a built-in MTP twisted pair receiver, which accepts either S-video or composite video signals over standard Cat-5 cable. This enhanced connectivity provides integration flexibility and aids in cable management by minimising the number of connections at the touchpanel.
GUI Configurator software makes configuration of the touchpanel easy, and eliminates the need for additional graphics programs. This software offers ready-to-use templates for single display rooms, dual display rooms, divisible rooms, multi-image systems and video conference suites.
The TLP 710MV mounts on a wall, lectern, or other flat surface, while The TLP 710TV is designed to sit on a tabletop or install on a VESA mount. The touchpanels and IP link control processors communicate using a standard Ethernet network, allowing utilisation of existing infrastructure.
