RMC3

3-Series® Room Media Controller

Discontinued

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

Provides a compact 3-Series® control system featuring the Crestron IFE micro form factor. Conveniently powered via PoE and fits almost anywhere to suit a variety of specialized applications.

The Crestron® RMC3 provides a secure, high‑performance, cost-effective control processor and interface for controlling and monitoring a single display device, a small AV system, lighting and shading, climate control, security, energy management, and many other specialized applications. A small form factor allows the RMC3 to be placed just about anywhere, with the option to attach it to a flat surface or DIN rail using the included mounting bracket. The RMC3 can fit easily behind a video display or above a projector, and provides enough control ports to control the display device along with a screen or lift.

3-Series Control Engine
The RMC3 features an integrated, enterprise-grade 3-Series® control processor. Crestron 3-Series control engines deliver a dynamic and secure control system platform capable of managing a room of disparate technologies. Reliable networking and IP control afford seamless integration with other systems and devices, with add-on control capability using Crestron touch screens, wireless remotes, and mobile device apps, as well as remote management through Crestron Fusion® software and the XiO Cloud® service.

Modular Programming Architecture
The RMC3 is designed to run a single program out of the box. The optional SW‑RMC3‑10PROG modular programming architecture (MPA) add-on allows the RMC3 to run up to ten programs simultaneously.1 Programmers can develop and run independent, device‑specific programs, enabling each program to be optimized for a specific function and allowing for changes to be made to one program without affecting the whole system.

Control Apps and XPanel
Native to every 3-Series control system, Crestron XPanel technology transforms any laptop or desktop computer into a virtual Crestron touch screen. Crestron control apps deliver the Crestron touch screen experience to iPhone®, iPad®, and Android™ devices, to safely monitor and control a residence or commercial facility using the one device that goes with you everywhere.

Onboard Control Ports
Through a full complement of onboard control ports, the RMC3 can be integrated with a wide variety of audio, video, lighting, motorized shades, thermostats, door locks, sensors, security systems, and other equipment.

  • Ethernet provides an interface for connecting to the building network and controlling Crestron AV switchers, audio processors, power controllers, and other IP controllable equipment.
  • Cresnet® network connectivity provides support for Crestron lighting dimmers, motorized shades, sensors, thermostats, keypads, and more.2
  • Onboard RS‑232, IR, relay, and digital input control ports enable direct integration with all types of third‑party equipment.

Expanded connectivity can be provided to the RMC3 via Crestron control port expansion modules, Ethernet to Cresnet bridges, wired Ethernet I/O extenders, or Wi-Fi® network I/O extenders (all sold separately).

Built-In .AV Framework Software
The RMC3 provides native support for .AV Framework™ software, which is a web‑based management solution that is used to deploy scalable Crestron enterprise room solutions without requiring any programming. Built-in .AV Framework technology delivers a fully functional AV presentation system with simplified web‑based configuration and a choice of control options and add‑ons. For more information, visit www.crestron.com/avframework.

Crestron Fusion Room Monitoring and Scheduling
Crestron Fusion provides an integrated platform for creating smart buildings that save energy and enhance worker productivity. As part of a complete managed network in a corporate enterprise, college campus, convention center, or any other facility, the RMC3 works with Crestron Fusion to enable remote scheduling, monitoring, and control of rooms and technology from a central help desk or mobile app. It also enables organizations to reduce energy consumption by tracking real-time usage and automating control of AV, lighting, shades, and HVAC. For more information, visit www.crestron.com/fusion.

XiO Cloud Provisioning and Management
3-Series control systems leverage the power and flexibility of XiO Cloud services, enabling users to remotely provision, monitor, and manage supported Crestron and third-party devices across an enterprise network. XiO Cloud can be used to configure and load programs to the control system before it is received, making the control system fully functional as soon as it is connected to the network. XiO Cloud is built on the Microsoft® Azure® software platform and utilizes Microsoft's industry leading Azure IoT Hub technology. XiO Cloud enables installers and IT managers to deploy and manage thousands of devices simultaneously. Unlike other virtual machine based cloud solutions, Azure services provide unlimited scalability to suit the ever growing needs of an enterprise. For more information, visit www.crestron.com/xiocloud.

SNMP Support
Built‑in SNMP support enables integration with third‑party IT management software, allowing network administrators to manage and control Crestron systems on the network in an IT‑friendly format.

BACnet Support
Native support for the BACnet communication protocol provides a direct interface to third-party building management systems over Ethernet, simplifying integration with HVAC, security, and other systems. Using BACnet, each system runs independently but communicates together on one platform.3

Power over Ethernet
Using Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology, the RMC3 gets its operating power directly through the LAN wiring, eliminating the need for a local power supply or any dedicated power wiring. A PoE Injector (PWE‑4803RU) simply connects in line with the LAN cable at any convenient location. Crestron PoE switches may also be used to provide a total networking solution with built‑in PoE. All PoE injectors and switches are sold separately.

Integrator Friendly Enclosure
The RMC3 features the Crestron IFE form factor, a compact Integrator Friendly Enclosure design that fits almost anywhere and enables a variety of installation options. Its shape allows multiple RMC3 and other IFE compliant devices to be stacked together. Using the included mounting bracket, it can be fastened to a flat surface or snapped onto a standard DIN rail. Rack mount and pole mount kits are also available (sold separately).

  1. Enabling Modular Programming Architecture (MPA) on the RMC3 requires the purchase of one SW‑RMC3‑10PROG license. The license enables support for running up to 10 simultaneous programs on a single RMC3. The license is not required if only one program is run on the RMC3. To obtain a license for the RMC3, complete the Request for SW‑RMC3‑10PROG License form. For questions, contact license@crestron.com.
  2. The NET (Cresnet) port on the RMC3 is a 3-pin connector which provides connectivity for Cresnet data only, not power. The Cresnet power conductor does not terminate to the RMC3. An external Cresnet power supply is required to provide power for Cresnet devices.
  3. A BACnet and IP license is required. A free license is available to support up to 50 BACnet objects on a single 3‑Series control system. Enabling support for more than 50 BACnet objects requires the purchase of one SW‑3SERIES‑BACNET‑50+ license. The RMC3 supports a maximum of 500 BACnet objects when dedicated for BACnet use only. Actual capabilities are contingent upon the overall program size and complexity. To obtain the license, visit www.crestron.com/bacnetlicense.
