        A 3-gang wall-mount Crestron® control system with 15 programmable buttons, customizable backlit labeling, LED feedback, 5-way nav pad, volume control knob, and 17 various control ports.

        Crestron® MPC is a family of 2-Series control systems designed for installation in a wall or podium, delivering the industry's best multimedia room control technology in a convenient, space-saving design. Perfect for classrooms, meeting rooms, lecture halls, and training facilities, the MPC-M25 provides a fully-programmable user interface featuring an attractive and intuitive layout of pushbuttons with customizable backlit labeling, volume control, 5-way navigation pad, and wireless remote capability.

        Available in white or black, the MPC-M25 is constructed to handle the rigors of everyday use in a corporate or educational environment. Numerous programmable control ports afford plentiful connectivity for a roomful of audio, video, and lighting equipment. The onboard e-Control® web server provides for complete integration as part of a facility-wide managed control network.

        Simplified Control

        The MPC-M25 is engineered to be easy to integrate and use, yet versatile enough to suit each application perfectly. Its 15 programmable hard key buttons can be freely programmed for system power, input source selection, transport control, lighting presets, and any other functions. Custom backlit labeling of the buttons is facilitated using an assortment of pre-printed labels or Crestron Engraver software. The 5-way directional navigation pad enables full control of DVD players, displays, and other devices that utilize an onscreen menu. Adjusting audio volume and other parameters is enabled using the continuous-turn control knob and LED bargraph.

        Configuring a complete MPC media presentation control solution is simplified using SIMPL programming, allowing limitless programmability from the award-winning platform that's familiar to every Crestron dealer. Uploading and updating a facility full of MPC systems is managed easily over the network, or individually via the front panel USB port.

        Wireless Remote

        A range of options is available for adding wireless remote control to the MPC system. Its built-in IR receiver allows use of any Crestron IR wireless touchpanel or handheld remote without requiring a separate receiver or gateway. For greater range and freedom of movement, MPC also supports Crestron's full line of RF wireless and Wi-Fi® communication-based products.

        Wired Expansion

        Adding a second control panel or just adding a few more buttons is easy using the MP-B10 and MP-B20 Media Presentation Button Panels. With Cresnet® network and Ethernet built-in, the MPC-M25 works seamlessly with Crestron's entire line of keypads and touchpanels, lighting dimmers and shade controllers, signal processors and switchers, and much more.

        Built-in Control Ports

        Through a host of onboard control ports, the MPC-M25 interfaces directly with the video display or projector, DVD player, TV receiver, projection screen, lift, occupancy sensor, and other devices in the room. In addition to Cresnet and high-speed Ethernet, there are two bidirectional RS-232 COM ports, two IR/serial ports, six isolated relays, and four input ports right on the rear panel.

        Audio and Video Control

        The MPC-M25 is ideal for small room systems utilizing a single display device with computers and other sources connected directly to it. But like any 2-Series control system, MPC is fully scalable to suit larger applications with several program sources, microphones, or even multiple displays. Simply add a C2N-VEQ4 module to enable 4 channels of audio volume and EQ control. Or, use any of Crestron's QuickMedia® wall plate and FlipTop interfaces, switchers, and receivers for a total signal routing, processing, and amplification solution.

        Ethernet and e-Control®2

        Built-in Ethernet facilitates secure high-speed network connectivity, enabling extensive capabilities for remote system maintenance and control, and providing an interface to other Crestron control systems. The onboard Web server provides the foundation for Crestron's exclusive e-Control 2 Xpanel technology, providing secure IP-based remote control. SSL encryption prevents hackers from breaching the system and accessing its controls.

        RoomView® and SNMP

        The MPC-M25 communicates directly with Crestron's exclusive RoomView help desk software, the industry's most comprehensive facility-wide solution for remote monitoring and asset management. Built-in SNMP support also enables integration with third-party network management software, allowing full control and monitoring from the IT Help Desk or NOC in a format that's familiar to IT personnel.

        Cresnet® Client Mode

        Selectable Cresnet Client Mode enables the MPC-M25 to become a Cresnet keypad controller and expansion module as part of a larger Crestron system, providing a deluxe user-interface with local control ports built in for interfacing to nearby devices.

        Ambient Light Sensor

        The MPC-M25's built-in light sensor has a range of uses, from controlling its own backlight intensity, to providing ambient lighting level data to a central building management system.
