Extron Upgrades MediaLink(TM) System Configurator

Anaheim, California (October 9, 2006) - Extron Electronics announces the official launch of the MediaLink(TM) System Configurator , a free online application that enables customization of any of the 21 available MediaLink systems. System designers can easily customize a system by dragging and dropping system components using an intuitive graphical user interface that shows applicable choices for each design.

"The MediaLink System Configurator supports Extron's goal of creating easy-to-use, widely-available tools that help Extron Dealers, Consultants, and Instructional Technology Professionals choose the best classroom system solution." says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing for Extron. "We've incorporated some powerful new features based on feedback received during the beta testing conducted earlier this year. The latest features include additional speaker options, custom labels, and the ability to print an order summary that shows only MSRP pricing."

System design begins by selecting one of 21 base systems. Optional accessories can be added, such as wall plates and mounting hardware, and users can choose colors and cable lengths. Each system component shows up on the dynamic system diagram which also displays source input devices, such as VCRs, DVD players, and document cameras. During system configuration, a running price total and list of materials reflects changes in system design in real-time. Systems can also be saved for later recall. Extron dealers can order configured systems online through the Extron Dealer-only Web site at http://www.extron.com/mlsc.
