As the perfect front end for Crestron's MediaManager family of low-cost AV distribution products, the ingenious QuickMedia® FlipTop line provides a range of elegant, integrated multimedia interface and control solutions in a stylish flush mount tabletop design.
Handsomely finished in either black anodized or brushed aluminum, the QM-FTCC-TPS4 mounts flush in any tabletop surface for a clean, professional appearance. The sleek design of the "FlipTop" lid features an integrated color touchpanel to enable complete system control at every interface location. Wiring for the QM-FTCC-TPS4 is extremely simple requiring just a single CresCATQM cable (sold separately).
The bright 3.6" active matrix color touchscreen provides a fully-customizable user interface for control of AV, lighting, and other functions. With 16-bit Isys® graphics, the QM-FTCC-TPS4 produces astounding 3D graphics, dynamic text, and full-motion animations complete with WAV file audio feedback. Ten programmable pushbuttons are also included featuring translucent buttons with white LED backlighting and engravable faceplate. To prevent accidental button presses, the touchpanel and pushbuttons are automatically disabled whenever the lid is not fully opened.
Inputs are provided for one RGB/component signal with corresponding stereo audio to accept a connection from a computer or other high resolution source. For complete connectivity, the QM-FTCC-TPS4 also includes an AC power receptacle.
Cable Storage Compartment
Connectivity for computer signals is facilitated using easy pull-out RGB and audio cables (included), which attach to inputs hidden beneath the table surface and stow neatly within the FlipTop compartment when not in use. Excess cable simply drops out-of-sight below the box through
grommeted holes provided in the bottom plate. Network connectivity is easily included using any third-party LAN cable.
Gated Mic Preamp
Two gated microphone inputs are included via terminal block connectors located below the table surface. Both dynamic and condenser type microphones are supported with software switchable 48V phantom power available at both microphone inputs. Balanced or unbalanced line-level sources such as wireless microphones can also be accommodated. Input gain and gating controls for each microphone/line input are fully adjustable at setup, and can also be controlled in real-time from the touchpanel.
Using Crestron's revolutionary QuickMedia transport, all input signals are transmitted from the QM-FTCC-TPS4 to any QuickMedia Receiver or Distribution Center over a single inexpensive CAT5e type cable*. Computer resolutions up to 1920 X 1200 pixels at 60Hz are supported over cable runs up to 450 feet. Audio signals are transmitted digitally with high-performance 24-bit resolution. QuickMedia dramatically simplifies system design and installation, affording a higher level of performance at a lower overall cost.
MediaManager System Integration
Whether using just one FlipTop box or several, complete system operation can be made transparent to the end-user with all signal routing occurring smoothly under the command of the MediaManager control system. Built-in video sensing can be utilized to trigger automatic input selection and power control. Complete MediaManager systems are easy to design, program and adjust from start to finish using Crestron SystemBuilder software.
