This product has been discontinued. Please contact Crestron True Blue Support at 1-888-CRESTRON for a replacement solution or more information.

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.

The MP2 combines a control system and audio/video switcher in a single box to provide a cost-effective total room control solution. Easily configured with Crestron SystemBuilder™ software, the MP2 is all that is needed to select and control all of the room's AV and environmental resources including VCRs, DVD/CD players, projectors, screens, lighting and more. The MP2 is ideal as the master control processor for a small stand-alone AV system, and serves equally well slaved to another 2-Series control processor to add audio/video switching and control port expansion.

4x2 Video Switcher
The high-bandwidth 4x2 video crosspoint switcher distributes video from four composite sources to two destinations—great for displaying one source on a plasma display while previewing another on a Crestron touchpanel. Alternatively, the switcher may be configured as a 2X1 S-Video switcher. Built-in video-sensing on each input can be used to provide device power status information to the control system, and to detect signal presence for auto-switching.

The video routing capabilities of the MP2 can be extended by adding the C2N-MMS S-Video/RGBHV matrix switcher.

7x1 Audio Switcher/Processor
The 7x1 audio switcher provides balanced and unbalanced inputs for seven stereo audio sources. Built-in volume, bass, treble and mute controls and a 6-band graphic/parametric equalizer allow for precise adjustment and complete control of the audio signal. All audio settings and presets may be recalled and controlled from a Crestron touchpanel, keypad or other user interface. Crestron Digital Media Tools software (DMT) provides the installer with a simple utility for setting input levels and equalization settings.

2-Series Engine
At the heart of the MP2 is the powerful 2-Series engine. Our exclusive enhanced real-time operating system makes the MP2 the fastest, most reliable control system available. The MP2 features two built-in COM ports, four IR/Serial ports, four I/O Versiports, and four isolated relays, and supports the full range of Crestron touchpanels, keypads, and Cresnet peripherals.

Cresnet®
Cresnet is the communications backbone for many Crestron touchpanels, keypads, lighting controls, and other devices. The Cresnet bus is a simple, yet flexible 4-wire network that provides rock-solid bidirectional communication for numerous Cresnet devices.

Cresnet Slave Mode
Selectable Cresnet Slave Mode enables the MP2 to be configured as a Cresnet slave device, effectively transforming it into a Cresnet expansion module. Such flexibility can offer a cost-effective solution for system expansion, providing a host of additional control ports in a single module.

IR Wireless Option
When equipped with an optional CNXRMIRD IR receiver, the MP2 provides a low-cost wireless control solution using any Crestron IR wireless touchpanel, or a third-party universal IR remote.
