MediaControl

Modular Media Control Technology

Applications for conferencing and presentation areas require comprehensive control of media equipment and room infrastructure. The targeted use of these technologies enables optimum integration of technical solutions for room control such as lighting, ambience and climate control as well as optimised operation of media technology.

What is MediaControl?

MediaControl is a freely programmable control system developed by us for audio, video and building technology. Our media control system can be used to control audio routers, lighting systems, video switchers, projection technology, room functions (heating, ventilation etc.) and to integrate video surveillance. Ideal applications include: Meeting and conference rooms, museums, alarm systems, conventions and video conferences. It can also be connected to our stage manager systems or PANTURA.

Control Panels / Touch Panel


6.5″ to 19″ touch panel (wired or W-LAN) with sturdy, tilting metal housing. The touch-sensitive screens offer excellent video preview and are connected to the central control unit network.

Central Control Unit


The heart of the system is a 19″ – 2 U rack height control unit, which can be connected to several BUS expanders and supplemented with additional modules.

Mobile Operating Terminal


The Wi-Fi touch panel is an ideal solution for mobile media operation. It is TCP/IP-capable and offers brilliant reproduction with high-end video graphics.

BUS Expander


The 19″ 2 U BUS expansion unit is equipped with a repeater module for 4 additional P-DATA buses and is used to expand the central control unit and accommodate additional modules.
