DESCRIPTION
SPECIFICATIONS
The Extron IPL M PDP-ES is a compact Ethernet control card that installs in
Pioneer Electronics plasma displays that support the Pioneer ES (Expansion
Solution) COMM port card format. The IPL M PDP-ES features an integral Web
server and enables remote, proactive monitoring and troubleshooting of the
display.
Preloaded control pages provide basic control and monitoring functionality for
compatible Pioneer plasmas displays. Using the built-in control pages, an
administrator can monitor the display status in real time, turn the plasma ON or
OFF, change signal input selections, and more -- from a remote location via a
network connection. The device can be scheduled to turn itself ON and OFF
daily at preset times. The IPL M PDP-ES can be configured to send an e-mail
alert for various events, such as if the plasma’s internal temperature exceeds a
user-configurable threshold.
The IPL M PDP-ES uses an integrated, high performance Web server with
memory for storing HTML, JavaScript, Flash™ animation, and graphics files.
Customizable Web pages can be created and stored using off-the-shelf software
programs, such as Macromedia® Dreamweaver® and Microsoft® FrontPage®.
GlobalViewer™ Software
Extron’s GlobalViewer™ software is a Web based application that runs on the
Web server built in to the IPL M PDP-ES. GlobalViewer software is a free
application with robust features including multiple room views, real-time device
status, e-mail notification, and event scheduling that does not require
programmers or HTML knowledge. GlobalViewer software extends the asset
management functionality of the IPL M PDP-ES, allowing status information for
multiple Pioneer plasmas to appear directly in a single GlobalViewer screen
along with the data for other IP Link-enabled products.
FEATURES
■ IP Link™ Interface Module – Compact Ethernet control card installs in
Pioneer Electronics plasma displays that support the Pioneer ES
(Expansion Solutions) COMM card format.
■ Integrated control, scheduling, and monitoring capabilities –
Preloaded control pages provide basic native functionality. The
IPL M PDP-ES is fully compatible with GlobalViewer for extended remote
management capabilities.
■ Bi-directional RS-232 port – The IPL M PDP-ES features one 9-pin D-sub
serial port that will pass through standard Pioneer commands.
■ Integral Web server – Each IP Link interface features a built-in Web
server with memory available for storing device drivers, built-in control
pages, GlobalViewer control pages, and customized Web pages.
■ Global compatibility – All IP Link products use industry standard
Ethernet communication protocols, including ARP, DHCP, ICMP (ping),
TCP/IP, UDP/IP, Telnet, HTTP, and SMTP.
■ High performance architecture – Web pages are served many times
faster (6 Mbps transfer rate) than similar products, so data is refreshed at
a consistently high speed.
■ Multi-user support – Each IP Link device supports multiple concurrent
users, improving system throughput by sending information in parallel.
■ Multiple levels of security with password protection – User access level
authorizes limited entry to only pre-designated functions, while
administrator access level permits full access to advanced settings.
