iMedia Receiver with 3 IM Inputs

  • A simple, affordable solution for single-display computer presentation
  • Supports up to 3 IM transmitters
  • iMedia Transport for fast and easy single-cable installation

Crestron's iMedia provides an extremely simple and affordable computer presentation solution for small conference rooms and training rooms. No comparable solution comes close to matching iMedia's speed and ease of installation, intuitive operation, and incredibly low cost.

The iMedia Transport
The iMedia transport utilizes a single CAT5e* cable to transmit computer RGB and stereo audio signals to a single projector or plasma display. A typical XGA signal (1024 X 768 pixels at 60Hz) can be transmitted up to 84 feet using iMedia, while higher resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 can be handled over shorter distances. Audio is transmitted digitally at 20-bit, 48 kHz resolution. Control and power signals are also contained on the same wire, eliminating the need for separate control or power cables.

Three-Input iMedia Receiver
Mounted at the projector or plasma display, the IM-RX3 receives iMedia (IM) signals from up to three IM transmitters, breaking out the RGB, audio, and control signals for connection to the display device. Adjustable bandwidth compensation is provided on each IM input to maximize image quality over long cable runs.

Integrated Audio
The IM-RX3 includes a built-in 20 watt stereo amplifier to drive a pair of 8 ohm speakers. Balanced line-level outputs are also provided to allow the audio signal to be connected directly to inputs on the display device or fed to a pair of powered speakers. Onboard digital signal processing affords adjustment of master volume, bass, treble and balance settings at setup.

Display Control
The IM-RX3 contains both IR and bidirectional RS-232 ports to enable full control of the display device. Two relay ports are also included for control of a projection screen or lift. In addition, the four digital input ports can accept the direct connection of room occupancy sensors and power sensors for enhanced automation and monitoring.

e-Control®2 and RoomView™
Despite its simple design and low cost, the IM-RX3 also supports Crestron's powerful e-Control 2 XPanel and RoomView applications, delivering the industry's best help desk and resource management solution for any number of rooms equipped with iMedia.

Fast, Easy Setup
System setup takes mere minutes using iMedia Wizard software, providing easy start to finish configuration, adjustment, and documentation.

* For iMedia use CRESCAT-IM-P cable, or quality CAT5e/CAT6 cable having a maximum delay skew of 15nS per 100m.
