ATLANTA, GA — Visix, Inc. has integrated Extron’s IP Link Ethernet control technology into its web-based visual communications application, AxisTV, so users can efficiently manage displays in digital signage applications. The integrated solution will be unveiled at the InfoComm 2008 show in Las Vegas.
The first release from Visix is designed to support the Extron IPL T S1 Ethernet Control Interface and will be available for purchase in June. Users can access an unlimited number of IP Link devices from a single browser interface to manually control an array of display functions or schedule on/off cycles. The integrated solution from Visix is designed to control display functions closely associated with digital signage, but integrators with programming knowledge can further expand functionality.
“Depending on the size of the deployment, users can annually recognize hundreds or even thousands of dollars in potential energy savings by turning displays off when not in use,” stated Trey Hicks, Vice President of Sales with Visix. “Not only can users help reduce carbon emissions, but they can extend the life of their displays and reduce the likelihood of image retention,” furthered Hicks.
“Controlling displays with an IP Link device in this application is transparent,” stated Lee Dodson, Extron Vice President of Marketing. “The Extron IP Link interface works in concert with the Visix AxisTV application, allowing the digital signage user to manage both media content and display hardware from a single browser interface.”
