MediaButtons allows control of a single screen by using icons to change which source is being viewed.  It is useful in installations where control of just one screen is desired in a specific place such as an office or conference room.

MediaCommand enables control of MediaSwitcher from a command line interface.  This allows for script based control of the video matrix.
