QuickMedia® Transmitter Computer Center
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-TX2-CC affords a portable or rack-mounted computer interface solution for QuickMedia-based MediaManager systems. The QM-TX2-CC can be used in a variety of applications to send computer signals to one or more displays using the Crestron exclusive single-wire QuickMedia transport.
Dual Computer Interface
The QM-TX2-CC is ideal for installation in a presentation podium, computer station, or central equipment rack to transmit computer signals to a QM Receiver or Distribution Center using just a single inexpensive CresCAT®QM cable. It's also perfect for portable use, requiring just one RJ45 plus a 4-pin Cresnet connection in any standard wall plate or floor box to provide an extremely simple yet versatile computer input anywhere in the room. Since it's powered by Cresnet, it doesn't even require a connection to AC power.
Two independent DB15HD computer inputs are provided on the QM-TX2-CC, each with corresponding stereo audio, to accept connections from two separate computer sources. Both inputs support RGBHV signals up to WUXGA 1920 x 1200. Buffered monitor pass-thru connectors are also included to feed the input signals to local monitors.
Professional Balanced Audio
Two balanced stereo line-level audio inputs are provided. Audio breakaway capability allows the audio inputs to be switched independent of the RGB inputs, or linked with them.
Built-in 2x1 Switcher
All RGB and audio signal switching is performed onboard the QM-TX2-CC. Switching can be controlled programmatically from any remote keypad or touchpanel, or right from the front panel. Built-in signal sensing on each RGB input can be utilized to trigger automatic input selection, as well as other system functions such as device power control.
IR Control Port
A single IR output port is included on the QM-TX2-CC to enable programmable control of a multimedia computer or other IR-controllable device.
Using the revolutionary QuickMedia transport, the selected input signals are transmitted from the QM-TX2-CC to any QuickMedia Receiver or Distribution Center over a single inexpensive CAT5e type cable*. 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 QM transmitter 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.
