MLC 104 IP PLUS
MLC 104 IP Plus
The MLC 104 IP Plus MediaLink Controller with
built-in IP Link Ethernet Control is an easy-touse control panel for any small classroom or
meeting room. It is designed to control a wide
range of smaller A/V systems and enables Webbased remote diagnostics, asset management,
and support. The MLC 104 IP Plus standardizes
the control interface for all systems, making them
simple to use. Standardization also makes setup
and maintenance easier to support.
IP Link Ethernet Control
The flexible MLC 104 IP Plus 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 equipped with the
MLC 104 IP Plus and operate the A/V system.
The MLC 104 IP Plus includes universal display
control for a display’s power, input switching, and
volume control. For one-button functionality, the
MLC 104 IP Plus features backlit buttons that
can be custom-labeled for easy identification.
Because the buttons illuminate, they are helpful for
presenters in low-light environments.
Universal Projector Control
The MLC 104 IP Plus is also capable of learning IR
commands for centralized control of external source
devices, such as DVD players and VCRs, when used
with an optional IRCM - Infrared Control Module.
Especially vital for high traffic areas, the
MLC 104 IP Plus is housed in a secure two-gang
enclosure. It has the same look and functionality
regardless of where it is mounted: a lectern,
desk, wall, rack, or wall box.
®
The MLC 104 IP Plus is equipped with Extron’s
IP Link®, an IP integration technology specifically
engineered to meet the needs of professional A/V
environments — from small K-12 classrooms to
large universities and businesses. The MLC 104 IP
Plus is fully supported by our Free GlobalViewer®
Web-based A/V resource management application
and GlobalViewer® Enterprise server-based A/V
resource management software.
Each MLC 104 IP Plus is equipped with a
dedicated port for communicating with virtually
any projector or display via IR or bidirectional
RS-232. Hundreds of device drivers are available
for download at no charge from our Web site at
www.extron.com.
Room Control
External devices such as lighting, screens,
projector lifts, or other products can be controlled
via three digital I/O ports and the dedicated IR
port on the MLC 104 IP Plus. Each digital I/O port
is configurable as a digital input or digital output
and can interface with a variety of devices, such
as sensors, switches, LEDs, and relays. The
dedicated IR port is ideal for control of display
devices and source equipment, such as VCRs
and DVD players.
the touch of a single button can trigger commands
to turn on a projector, select the projector’s
computer video input, and select a source input
on a MediaLink Switcher.
Configurable, Backlit Buttons
With the MLC 104 IP Plus, presenters with little
or no training can walk into any multimedia
classroom and operate the A/V system. The
backlit buttons on all MediaLink Controllers are
configurable to control input switching, power,
and volume. Because the buttons illuminate,
they are simple to see and operate in low-light
environments.
Control Modules
A wide selection of Extron Control Modules
is available for customized remote control of
external devices such as VCRs, DVD players, and
audio tape decks, as well as screens, lighting,
and basic audio adjustments. Integrating DVD
and VCR Control Modules into a MediaLink
system eliminates the clutter and confusion that
comes with multiple handheld remote controls.
Versatile Mounting Options
Several mounting options are available for
the MLC 104 IP Plus. Additional mounting kits
are available for local input expansion, or to
accommodate installations in lecterns, external
wall boxes, equipment racks, or desks.
Macro Capability
The backlit source selection and room control
buttons of the MediaLink Controllers can be
configured to execute multiple actions through
serial RS-232 and IR control ports. For instance,

MEDIALINK PRODUCTS ARE SIMPLE AND EASY TO CONFIGURE…
NO PROGRAMMING KNOWLEDGE IS REQUIRED
®
Extron’s free Global Configurator puts all of the
most commonly used system monitoring and control
options at your fingertips. One of the costliest
aspects of building an A/V asset management
system, in terms of human resources and time,
is programming. A/V system programming can
be a complex task that requires the skills of an
experienced programmer.
Extron’s configuration approach offers tremendous
benefits over traditional system programming
methods, particularly for those who have mediumto-large installations to connect, monitor, and
maintain. Configuring the MLC 104 IP Plus is as
simple as selecting choices from intuitive, dropdown menus instead of writing, compiling, and debugging complicated computer source code. Should
system changes need to be made in the future,
such as a new VCR or DVD player, an experienced
programmer is not required.
Nearly Anyone Can Configure A System
System Changes Take Less Time
Non-programmers can use our free Global
Configurator software to build a complete A/V asset
management and monitoring system, freeing up
programmers for other projects.
Configuration means that initial system setup time
is reduced and there’s no need to delay making
changes because you are waiting for a hard-to-find
programming resource.

IR Learning
Extron creates and administers a wide selection of
commonly used projector control drivers. These IR
and serial RS-232 drivers allow MediaLink Controllers
to communicate with a display device. They enable
control of basic projector functions such as power,
input selection, and volume adjustment. Go to the
Extron Web site at www.extron.com to download
drivers for the latest and most popular projectors.
In environments where customizable projector
control is needed, integrators can easily enter in
their own RS-232 commands. RS-232 commands
can be assigned to any button using the provided
configuration software. The MediaLink Controllers
will work with virtually any projector.
Serial RS-232 is the preferred method of control;
however, many ultra portable projectors can only
support IR control. Various MediaLink Controller
models can learn IR commands from virtually any
IR controllable device. IR learning can also be used
in conjunction with optional IRCM Control Modules
that control source devices such as VCRs, DVD
players, and audio tape decks.

Free GlobalViewer Software
Remote Technical Support
Proactive Maintenance
Event Scheduling
Technicians can troubleshoot systems remotely
because Free GlobalViewer provides real-time
status of connected devices. Information such as
connection status, power state, or current input
selection is displayed in a central location. For
many connected devices, technicians can toggle
power On/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.
Free GlobalViewer can store information about
connected devices such as serial numbers,
owner identification, maintenance history,
usage data, and installed firmware versions.
This centralized data can be used to reduce
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 104 IP Plus can send an e-mail
notification.
Free GlobalViewer uses the real-time clock and
calendar in IP Link-enabled devices to maximum
value. User-defined tasks are easy to configure
and schedule with Free GlobalViewer and do
not 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.
