QuickMedia® Wall Plate Media Center

A 2-gang wall mount multimedia interface, providing selectable inputs for video and computer sources with audio. QuickMedia transport allows distribution of WUXGA signals up to 450 feet over a single QuickMedia cable.

Crestron® MediaManager is a comprehensive family of affordable products fusing high-performance AV signal distribution, device control, and facility-wide system management. MediaManager simplifies the art of ProAV system design and installation with complete hardware, software, and low-cost wiring solutions. Whether installing a single boardroom or a campus-wide network of AV systems, MediaManager delivers power and value far beyond conventional products and designs.

The QM-WMC QuickMedia® Wall Plate Media Center provides an elegant wall mount multimedia interface solution for any MediaManager system, including applications ranging from small conference rooms to large banquet halls and auditoriums.

Wall Mount Multimedia Interface
The QM-WMC installs cleanly in a standard electrical box or trim ring. Individual inputs are provided for composite, S-Video, and RGB/component signals, each with corresponding stereo audio, to accept connections from portable AV devices and computers. A buffered monitor pass-thru connector is also provided to feed the RGB input signal to a local monitor.

Connectivity for LAN and other signals can easily be added by ganging the QM-WMC together with other 3rd-party wall plate devices. A Crestron C2N-DB or C2N-CBD series keypad may also be installed for a truly complete multimedia interface and control solution. Wiring for the QM-WMC is extremely simple requiring just a single CresCAT®QM cable (sold separately).

AV Switcher
The built-in 3X1 switcher includes audio breakaway to allow the three program audio inputs to be switched independent of the video and RGB inputs, or linked with them. Built-in video sensing on every video/RGB input can be utilized to trigger automatic input selection and power control.

Gated Mic Preamp (Optional)
Two gated microphone inputs may be added using the QM-WMIC Microphone Input Module (sold separately). Via two Neutrik® Combo connectors, the QM-WMIC supports both dynamic and condenser type microphones with software switchable 48V phantom power available at both XLR inputs. Balanced or unbalanced line-level sources can also be accommodated using the 1/4" TRS connections. Input gain and gating controls for each microphone/line input are fully adjustable at setup, and can also be controlled in real-time from a keypad or touchpanel.

QuickMedia® Transport
Using the revolutionary QuickMedia transport, all input signals are transmitted from the QM-WMC to any QuickMedia Receiver or Distribution Center over a single inexpensive CAT5e type cable[1]. Computer resolutions up to 1920 X 1200 pixels at 60Hz are supported over cable runs up to 450 feet. Audio signals are transmitted digitally with high-performance 24-bit resolution. QuickMedia dramatically simplifies system design and installation, affording a higher level of performance at a lower overall cost.

MediaManager System Integration
Whether using just one Wall Plate Media Center or several, complete system operation can be made transparent to the end-user with all signal routing occurring smoothly under the command of the MediaManager control system. Complete MediaManager systems are easy to design, program and adjust from start to finish using Crestron SystemBuilder™ software.
