Extron MediaLink Gives Teachers Instant Access to Classroom Technology

Extron MediaLink ControllerExtron technology played a key role in the success of AVI-SPL’s recent integration for Cranbrook Schools’ newest addition, the Kingswood School for Girls.

Cranbrook, a collection of private schools located in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., needed to give its instructors at Kingswood full control of each classrooms’ presentation devices. Specifically, the school wanted its teachers to be able to operate devices from its room’s lectern. To accommodate, AVI-SPL installed Extron MediaLink controllers in each of the lecterns, allowing teachers to control SMART boards and projectors, laptops and media players from one location, and switch sources instantly. The Extron MLC 104 IP handles all signal control and features Ethernet control to facilitate remote AV resource management.

“Working with Extron made it all possible,” says AVI-SPL Systems Integration Engineer Mark Hothem.
