Extron today announced it will work with Dolby on enabling the Dolby Conference Phone to operate seamlessly with the Extron Pro Series AV control solutions. This extends Extron control capabilities to the Dolby Conference Phone, providing complete AV and conferencing control for the modern meeting space. When incorporated with an Extron Pro Series control system, a simple tap on a TouchLink Pro Touchpanel will control call volume as well as send commands that trigger automation events for display control, shades, lighting, and more. Occupancy sensors can also be added to automate system power to turn on displays when participants enter a room. The solution provides a new level of convenience, providing an effortless, centralized control of other in-room AV devices, all with the goal of delivering an exceptional collaboration experience.
“We are very pleased to team up with Dolby to share innovative control and collaboration solutions,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. “With this first collaborative effort, presenters will have the added convenience of full-featured room AV control while maintaining the powerful communications functions within the Dolby Conference Phone.”
“Extron’s flexible room control solutions allow administrators to maintain a user interface that is simple and consistent across any screen end users wish to leverage for calls or room control while using the Dolby Conference Phone,” said Patrick Ferriter, Vice President of Business Development, Communications Business Group, Dolby. “Users will not have to compromise a spectacular audio experience for convenience but can have both.”In addition to room AV control, this scalable technology includes Extron audio signal processors and digital video switching and distribution for a unified collaboration solution. Meeting attendees will benefit from a significant expansion of meeting collaboration features while enjoying the convenience of AV room control, all from familiar user interfaces.
