offer an incredible opportunity to extend live presentations to
individuals unable to attend an event due to time, distance, or other
physical barriers. Streaming and recording are effective ways that
organizations can use to communicate and educate, by capturing
the presentation experience and delivering that same information
and insight to viewers anywhere.

RCP 101 Series - Remote Control Panels for SMP Series
Extron RCP 101 Series remote control panels feature backlit transport controls for
remote operation of Extron SMP Series products. A USB port provides convenient
access to a thumb drive or external portable storage. RCP 101 panels have status
and alarm indicator lights with an audible buzzer. A 15 foot (4.5 meter) USB cable is
included. RCP 101 panels may be used with Extron USB Extender Plus Series twisted
pair extenders to support distances up to 330 feet (100 meters). Available in decoratorstyle, MK, and EU versions; the EU version is compatible with Flex55 enclosures or
EU junction boxes. RCP 101 Series panels include black and a white faceplates to

compliment a wide range of environments. MK model is available in white only.
Instructors, trainers, athletic departments, and media centers benefit from the SMP 111 Streaming Media Processor, and are able to record
and stream their sessions with ease. Providing a flexible platform to record to both the internal flash storage and provide a duplicate copy on
a USB drive, makes the process of documenting an event very efficient. Coupled with the ability to automatically upload the recordings to
content management systems after the session, and provide a live stream to services such as YouTube, and Facebook Live all at the same
time, makes this a complete system in a very small package. Supporting an HDMI source, such as a camera, computer, or an entire upstream AV system, the input scaling engine manages resolution changes and matches the desired recording and separate streaming resolutions.
Adding a microphone or auxiliary audio source in addition to the HDMI source audio is easily configured, and the two audio sources can be
mixed together. Flexible streaming presets allow for rapid adjustment of streaming configurations to serve multiple tasks, such as streaming to
an overflow room before switching the stream to a hosting service.
