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-FTMC mounts flush in any tabletop surface for a clean, professional appearance. The sleek design of the "FlipTop" lid features an integrated keypad to provide programmable pushbutton control at every interface location. Wiring for the QM-FTMC is extremely simple requiring just a single CresCAT™QM cable (sold separately).
Individual inputs are provided for composite, S-Video, and RGB/component signals, each with corresponding stereo audio, to accept connections from portable AV devices and computers. For complete connectivity, the QM-FTMC also includes an RJ45 LAN pass-thru connector and AC power receptacle.
The customizable keypad provides 10 to 20 programmable pushbuttons for control of AV, lighting, and other functions. All button caps are engravable and include LED feedback indicators. Two LED bargraphs are also provided to display level settings and other parameters. To prevent accidental button presses, the keypad is automatically disabled whenever the lid is not
AV Switcher and Mic Preamp
The built-in 3X1 switcher includes audio breakaway to allow the three program audio inputs to be switched independent of the video and RGB inputs. Additionally, 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 a keypad or touchpanel.
Using Crestron's revolutionary QuickMedia transport, all input signals are transmitted from the QM-FTMC 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 on every video/RGB input 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.
