Extron has announced the introduction of the HD CTL 100, a low-cost, easy-to-use workspace controller that is designed for automatic display control in small meeting rooms and huddle spaces.
The Extron HD CTL 100 offers plug-and-play automation, with no remotes to lose and no button to press.
When an active signal is connected to the HDMI input, the controller automatically turns on the display and selects the correct input via CEC control. It’s fully operational out of the box when using CEC, with automatic power control that allows users to collaborate with minimal interaction with the AV hardware. When no signal is detected, the system will power down after a predetermined time period.
The HD CTL 100 also easily integrates with the Extron OCS 100 occupancy sensor to automatically power the system on when users enter the room. When a ShareLink wireless collaboration gateway is connected, support is added for wireless bring your own device (BYOD) convenience. This provides effective collaboration and content sharing from a wide variety of mobile devices.
Additionally, the HD CTL 100 supports HDMI data rates up to 18Gbps and video resolutions up to 4K/60 with 4:4:4 chroma sampling.
“The HD CTL 100 is the latest in our growing family of compact, powerful collaboration tools designed to add convenience and increase efficiency within today’s modern meeting spaces. The HD CTL 100 is ideal for small collaboration spaces where it can automatically switch display inputs and control display power while remaining tucked away out of site,” says Extron vice president worldwide sales and marketing Casey Hall.
