The Crestron® HD-MD-400-C-E delivers an incredibly simple and cost-effective multimedia presentation solution for classrooms and meeting spaces. It allows a laptop or mobile deviceto be connected to one of three inputs at a table or podium, and routes the signal to a display or projector up to 230 feet (70 meters) away. An additional AV source can be connected at the display device location or through an optional wall plate. Fully automatic operation detects when a source is connected or disconnected at any input and turns the display on and off, alleviating the need for any control panels or remotes. Built-in scaling ensures an optimal video image for SDand HD video signals, as well as for high-res computer signals.
Composed of a compact transmitter and receiver pair, the HD-MD-400-C-E installs in minutes and requires no special programming. The transmitter mounts beneath the table or inside the podium, while the receiver mounts behind the display or above the projector. The only connection required between the transmitter and receiver is a single CAT type twisted pair cable.A LAN port on the receiver allows for connection to an Ethernet network to enable easy setup and configurationvia a Web browser. Advanced functionality is enabled through integration with a Crestron control system.
