The IPLinx Control application allows a user to switch between video sources and displays for video matrix switching or video walls using IPLinx hardware. A drag and drop of a source over a display will route the video from the source to the display. Multiple preset options provide users quick access to the previously saved layouts for common configurations. For user convenience, displays can be powered on or off though one touch on the application. Advanced settings enable users to hide or show devices as needed. A low resolution video preview of the source video stream provides a user with the current video content to properly route the source to the appropriate display with minimal confusion.
