remote control of the MLC 226 IP and connected external sources
DESCRIPTION
The Extron MLC 226 IP MediaLink® Controllers are enhanced control panels for controlling A/V
equipment in any small classroom or boardroom. They standardize the interface for all display
systems, making them easier to use, set up and maintain. All MLC 226 IP models include
IP Link with GlobalViewer®, a free Web-based A/V resource management and remote control
software application.
The MLC 226 IP MediaLink Controller offers several enhanced control capabilities including
six input selection buttons, two bidirectional serial ports for display and switcher control, three
unidirectional serial/IR control ports, six relays, and support for optional IRCM - Infrared Control
Modules to control VCRs, DVDs, and other IR controllable equipment.
The flexible MLC 226 IP acts as an extended remote control panel. It is not a switcher; instead,
as a controller, it tells the display when to switch between its various inputs. Presenters with
little or no training can walk into any multimedia classroom and operate the A/V system. The
MLC 226 IP includes universal display control for a display's power, input switching, and
volume control. The MLC 226 IP features backlit buttons that can be custom-labeled for
easy identification. Because the buttons illuminate, they are helpful for presenters in low-light
environments. The input selection and room/function buttons on the MLC 226 IP can be utilized
for source selection and relays, as well as sending various RS-232 or IR commands.
The MLC 226 IP is designed to work with almost every Extron switcher, including the
MediaLink Switchers, which are specifically designed to complement MediaLink Controllers.
MediaLink Switchers are available to accommodate a variety of video, RGBHV, and audio signals
while providing unique features that expand A/V system capabilities. The MLC 226 IP can also
work as a stand-alone device to control a display without the aid of a switcher.
Room Control
In addition to display and source control, the MLC 226 IP also offers the ability to control many
other devices in the room. Room lighting, screens, projector lifts, window shades and other
equipment can be controlled using the controller's six relays.
• Pre-printed button labels included
• Optional SCP 226 Secondary Control Panel — Duplicates the MLC 226 IP's front
panel buttons and offers a second control point within a room.
• Integral high performance Web server with 7.25 MB flash memory — Features a
built-in Web server with memory available for storing device drivers, GlobalViewer, and
custom user Web pages.

MLC 226 IP Series
Description
(continued)
IP Link® Ethernet Control
The MLC 226 IP is equipped with Extron's IP Link, a high performance intelligent network
integration solution specifically engineered to meet the needs of professional A/V environments
— from small K-12 classrooms to large universities and businesses. When used with
GlobalViewer, IP Link facilitates key A/V resource management functions including:
• Proactive maintenance — GlobalViewer can store and display information about
connected devices like serial numbers, owner identification, maintenance history, and
installed firmware versions. This centralized data can be collected and used to reduce
maintenance costs and guide future purchasing decisions. For instance, a projector can
be polled routinely to track lamp usage and total life time. When lamp usage reaches a
predetermined number of hours, the MLC 226 IP can send a report via e-mail.
• Event scheduling — GlobalViewer uses the real-time clock and calendar in IP Linkenabled devices to maximum value. User-defined tasks are easy to configure and
schedule with the GlobalViewer and don't require high-level programming skills. For
instance, an administrator may want to turn off all projectors every Friday at close
of business. The administrator can schedule the system to turn off all projectors at a
specified time, and raise all projection screens that were left down.
Web-Based A/V Resource Management with Free GlobalViewer and
GlobalViewer Enterprise
MLC 226 IP Series Controllers support both the free GlobalViewer ® Web application and
GlobalViewer Enterprise software for advanced A/V resource management capabilities.
GlobalViewer® Enterprise server-based software is the next step up for managing larger A/V
installations. It provides an easy upgrade path for existing users of Extron's GlobalViewer
Web application using configuration wizards, not programming. Compatible with most Web
browsers, GlobalViewer Enterprise provides enhanced help desk functionality, enterprise-wide
scheduling and monitoring, and time-stamped A/V system data collection for reporting. Built
on Microsoft® .NET® technology, GlobalViewer Enterprise integrates with third-party facility
scheduling software for viewing room availability and managing meeting schedules. As with
Extron's free GlobalViewer Web application, no programming is required.
TCP/IP
Network
• Remote technical support — Technicians can troubleshoot systems remotely because
GlobalViewer provides the real-time status of connected devices. Information such as
connection status, power state, and current input selection is displayed in a central
location. For many connected devices, technicians can toggle power on or off, switch
sources, control volume, and more without leaving their office. Many common problems
can be resolved without a trip to where the equipment is located.
• Theft alerts — IP Link-enabled products are always on and routinely poll their attached
devices for status information. If any serially controlled device such as a projector or
plasma display is physically disconnected from the network, the MLC 226 IP monitoring
its status will know immediately. In such an event, it can send an e-mail message
notifying security personnel of the possible theft. For fast action, e-mails can be sent to
multiple addresses including cell phones and wireless PDAs.Easy System Configuration
Using Global Configurator Software
The MLC 226 IP can be fully configured using Extron's Global Configurator software. Extron
creates and administers a wide selection of drivers for use with the MLC 226 IP which enable
control of basic display functions such as power, input selection, and volume adjustment. Users
can customize drivers or go to the Extron Web site to download RS-232 or IR drivers compatible
with the latest and most popular display and source devices.
