The Extron MLC 55 RS EU MediaLink® Controller is an economical, easy-to-use keypad controller for common AV functions such as power, input selection, and volume in single display applications. It features a sleek, new look with beveled edges, rounded corners, and redesigned backlit buttons. The faceplate hides the mounting screws and configuration port, giving the controller a refined, uncluttered appearance. The MLC 55 RS EU is specifically designed for mounting in a two-gang EU junction box or enclosure. The controller can be configured using the Extron MLC 55,62,64 Series configuration software.

Simple, Consistent Control in Every Room

The MLC 55 RS EU acts as an extended remote control panel, providing user-friendly control for a display's power, volume, and input selection. Because the controller offers a central point of control for a display device's key functions, it eliminates the need for the display's IR remote control, making operations much more efficient. With the MLC 55 RS EU, there are no misplaced remotes to search for, no confusing menus to navigate, and no dead batteries. No matter what brand of display is installed in each presentation venue, the MLC 55 RS EU MediaLink Controller always provides a consistent control method from room to room. Presenters with little or no training can walk into any room equipped with a MediaLink controller and operate the AV system with minimal effort.

Configurable Buttons for Flexible Control Options

No programming knowledge is necessary to install the MLC 55 RS EU MediaLink Controller. The four buttons on the right-hand side default to Volume Up, Volume Down, Select PC Input, and Select Video Input. Using the configuration software these buttons can be configured to send out any RS-232 or IR command supported by the display, making it easy to customize the controller to meet the needs of most single-display AV systems. For example, three of the four buttons could be configured for input selection, with the fourth button dedicated to video mute or auto image. Each button can store up to four separate commands, providing additional flexibility to meet the specific control requirements for most display devices. When a button is configured for Macro mode, all of the stored commands associated with that button are sent with a single button press. In Toggle mode, the button steps through a series of two, three, or four commands, issuing a single command with each press of the button.

Easy to Configure

No programming knowledge is necessary to configure MLC 55 RS EU MediaLink Controllers. When used with the supplied Windows®-based configuration software, installation files can be saved and used to duplicate additional MLC 55 models. The files can also be archived for later use.
