Configuring for Control

Configuring for Control

Extron pioneered configurable AV control systems with the MediaLink® family of push-button controllers. When Extron started thinking about ways to expand the control capabilities of these controllers, we explored how our configurable control approach could be applied to touchpanel interfaces. As a result of this new thinking, TouchLink® touchpanels were created. These revolutionary touchpanels became the industry’s first fully configuration-based touchpanels with the power to handle the control needs of single display rooms, dual display rooms, divisible rooms, multi-image systems, and video conference suites. This accredited online training program will provide you with the knowledge and hands-on skills to fully configure a TouchLink-based control system. These systems are made up of a TouchLink touchpanel, IP Link® control processor, and user-friendly configuration software.

The online Configuring for Control program is designed to provide individuals with an understanding of the best practices for the planning, design, and implementation of single-room Extron configurable control systems. This program builds on our popular Extron AV Associate certification program which includes intensive training on AV technologies, products, and applications.


This training program is ideal for individuals who are required to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot AV control systems, including design engineers, system integrator installers, system integrator project managers, control system programmers, and sales professionals.


There are no educational prerequisites. Successful completion of the Extron AV Associate Certification program is recommended.
