When space is limited or for cosmetic reasons the interface that runs an A/V system needs to be small, a 5-inch touchpanel like one from Extron is an ideal solution. When larger touchpanels are available, it’s natural to ask yourself if a pint-size option will have the power and polish required to control a large A/V setup.
Extron believes small doesn’t have to mean skimpy, and proves it with the newest addition to its comprehensive TouchLink Pro line of touchpanels. Measuring a mere 5 inches, the redesigned TLP Pro 525M wall mount TouchLink Pro touchpanel boasts eight times more memory than its predecessor thanks to an onboard quad-core processor.
The boast in memory equates to faster loading of background graphics and crisper page flips. Enhancing its user friendliness is an integrated light sensor that adjusts the screen brightness as the ambient light in the room changes. Whether you’re conducting a presentation with the lights on or off, the touchpanel will be easy to see.
In addition to improving the performance and usability of the touchpanel, increased RAM provides ample memory and processing power to support new features and capabilities for future firmware updates. Bottom line, with its contemporary looks and ability to learn new tasks, the 525M touchpanel is a futureproof solution.
Compatible with all Extron IP Link Pro control processors, the 525M has a resolution of 800×400, is smudge resistant, and employs PoE (Power over Ethernet). The latter allows the touchpanel to receive power and communicate over a single Ethernet cable, offering a quick, simple installation.
The TLP Pro 525M can be mounted in one of three ways: recessed into the wall, surface mounted, or rack mounted. Extron offers mounting kits to support all three options.
Extron has made configuring the touchpanel easy, too. Like all of its touchpanels, the TLP Pro 525M can be customized using the company’s GUI Designer software. This interface design tool offers ready-to-use templates for a wide variety of rooms and presentations environments.
