Extron is pleased to announce the latest version of MediaLink for iPad, version 1.1.
This AV control system app, designed for the Apple iPad, provides an additional point of control for systems with Ethernet-enabled MediaLink controllers and their associated control modules. With this app, users can wirelessly control their AV system using a Wi-Fi network, allowing them the freedom to move from room to room.
This latest release adds powerful new features, including support for Extron control modules to expand the app’s functionality in more applications and an enhanced Room Manager that eliminates the previous version’s 12 room limit, giving users the ability to use the app in larger scale installations. MediaLink for iPad 1.1 supports all generations of iPads and iPad mini and is now available for download on the App Store.
“Since its launch last spring, MediaLink for iPad has delivered the convenience of wireless, handheld AV control into hundreds of applications,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “This latest version integrates many new features that users have asked for, making this an even more powerful and flexible app.”
In addition to the features mentioned above, MediaLink for iPad version 1.1 also features Auto-reconnect, which recalls the previous session even after the app is closed, and Auto-lock override that keeps the iPad screen on and allows the app to stay active at all times.
As in the previous version, each button press is tracked in real time between the app and the controller, so that both stay in sync. MediaLink for iPad supports Extron MLC 104 IP Plus and MLC 226 IP MediaLink Controllers that are configured using Global Configurator.
