3x1 QuickMedia® Mini-Switcher
The QM-MDM3X1 is a compact 3x1 QuickMedia switcher designed to expand the input capacity of a single QM-RMCRX-BA Receiver or any device with a QM Input port. It attaches directly to the top of a QM-RMCRX-BA, providing inputs for up to three QuickMedia Wall Plates, FlipTop Boxes, and other QM Transmitters. It can also be installed beneath a table* or in a closet* to provide localized switching of any three QM sources.
The QM-MDM3X1 behaves as a midpoint QM device just like any other QM switcher. All signal routing is provided over inexpensive CAT5e type cable† via Crestron's exclusive QuickMedia transport, supporting the distribution of high-resolution RGB, video, stereo audio and microphone signals up to a total of 450 feet end-to-end. Up to two QM-MDM3X1's or other QuickMedia Switchers, Distribution Centers, and Distribution Amplifiers may be cascaded in a given QuickMedia signal path† to support larger system configurations.
Regardless of the configuration, 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. Audio breakaway capability allows audio signals to be selected independent of video signals.
Four (4) built-in Cresnet ports provide for distribution of Cresnet control signals and power. The QM-MDM3X1 can furnish up to 41 Watts Cresnet power when powered by a dedicated PW-2420RU power supply, or 16 Watts if powered by a PW-2410RU. The QM-MDM3X1 may also be powered directly from any 2-Series control system or Cresnet power supply via the Cresnet network.
