Extron Electronics has introduced Data Logger, a free asset management tool for collecting AV system statistics for data analysis.
Data Logger is a customized Microsoft Excel spreadsheet application that allows administrators to automatically gather up-to-date lamp hour and usage statistics for AV equipment located facility wide.
Data Logger works in conjunction with the Extron MLC 104 IP and MLC 226 IP MediaLink controllers that feature IP Link technology to collect critical system information such as frequency of usage for each front panel button and current lamp hours of connected projectors. Administrators can use Data Logger to determine exactly how often each AV resource has been used in a given range of time. This information can help schedule classroom usage and plan equipment purchases. Data can be collected periodically and archived as a file, allowing resource usage and lamp hour consumption to be monitored over time.
