        • (8) digital/analog input, digital output ports

        CNMSX-AV is the cost-competitive option in Crestron's new generation of control systems. The CNMSX-AV is fully expandable, a perfect choice for many small to mid-sized control applications.

        Ideal for: boardrooms, training centers, conference centers, videoconferencing, lighting control, environmental control, command and control centers, high tech homes.

        Crestron's CNMSX-AV is a high performance, integrated control system with dynamic expansion capabilities. Performance, value, reliability and a link to future technology are what set MSX apart from other control systems.

        The CNMSX-AV offers communication never before available in a control system. Crestron's exclusive DPA (Direct Processor Access) provides a direct link to any LAN or Internet connection via Ethernet. The MSX system's DPA card slot accommodates 10BaseT, 100BaseT and future communication protocols like ATM and Firewire. Each MSX control system has its own user-assigned IP address, seamlessly integrating with your computer network.

        MSX control systems provide the link to all the technology you want to control. Compatible with every Crestron control panel, touchpanel, wireless transmitter, interface and network device, Crestron's MSX systems put you in control - the Crestron way.
