        HD-MD-4K-300-2G-W

        4K 3x1 Scaling Auto-Switcher and DM Lite® Wall Plate Extender, White, over CATx Cable

        Provides a cost-effective multimedia presentation solution for classrooms and meeting spaces. Consists of a white 2-gang wall plate transmitter (HD-TX-201-C-2G-E Series) and a surface-mountable receiver (HD-RX-4K-210-C-E) that enable AV switching, scaling, and signal extension over a single CATx cable for up to 230 ft (70 m). Provides auto-switching HDMI® and VGA inputs on the transmitter and an additional HDMI input on the receiver. 4K scaling HDMI output ensures a reliable, high-quality video image. Supports 4K60 4:2:0 video.

        The Crestron® HD-MD-4K-300-2G provides a cost-effective multimedia presentation solution for classrooms and meeting spaces. Consisting of a wall plate transmitter (HD-TX-201-C-2G-E Series) and surface-mountable receiver (HD-RX-4K-210-C-E), the HD-MD-4K-300-2G extends an HDMI® or VGA signal over a CATx (CAT5e or higher) twisted pair cable. For resolutions up to 2K, the maximum transmission distance is 230  ft (70 m). For higher resolutions up to 4K, the maximum transmission distance is 130  ft (40 m).1

        NOTE: Power is transmitted over the CATx cable that connects the transmitter to the receiver.

        The transmitter provides one HDMI input and one VGA input with a complementary stereo analog audio input. The receiver provides an additional HDMI input that can be connected to a local AV source or to an optional Crestron media presentation wall plate (MP-WP152 Series, sold separately).

        The HD-MD-4K-300-2G is available in two models: HD-MD-4K-300-2G-W and HD-MD-4K-300-2G-B. The HD-MD-4K-300-2G-W includes a white HD-TX-201-C-2G-E Series wall plate transmitter. The HD-MD-4K-300-2G-B includes a black HD-TX-201-C-2G-E Series wall plate transmitter.

        Automatic Switching of Inputs
        Automatic switching among the HDMI and VGA inputs on the transmitter and the HDMI input on the receiver can occur based on the last connected input or on the routing priority assigned to each input. Switching behavior is configurable using the web interface or programmable using a Crestron control system. In  addition to automatic switching, input selection push buttons on the transmitter and receiver enable the desired input to be selected manually.

        NOTE: The analog audio input on the transmitter is switched in tandem with the VGA input and cannot be paired with an HDMI input. The analog audio input can also be used with an audio-only source with no video source connected.

        HDMI Output with 4K Scaler
        A single HDMI output with a built-in scaler connects the receiver to a display or other device with an HDMI input. Input  resolutions are automatically scaled to match the native resolution of the display device, resulting in optimal image quality. For applications requiring comprehensive EDID management, the web interface can be used to ensure that every input is displayed at its optimal resolution and format. Input resolutions up to 4K60 4:2:0 are supported.

        Audio De-embedding
        The analog audio output on the receiver enables the HD-MD-4K-300-2G to extract the stereo audio signal from digital sources to feed a sound bar, amplified speakers, or a separate sound system. The analog audio output is active only when the input is receiving a 2-channel stereo signal from the analog input or an HDMI input.

        Device Control
        Equipped with onboard control ports, the receiver can control various devices in a room. The COM (RS-232) port and CEC over the HDMI output can enable the display device to be turned on or off automatically without the use of a control system. With the use of a control system, the IR port can also control the display device. Two relay ports are provided for controlling a projection screen and other low-voltage contact closure activated equipment. Two Versiport I/O ports enable the integration of devices such as power sensors and motion detectors. An Ethernet port connection to a LAN also provides control by enabling use of the built-in web interface as well as connection to a control system.

        NOTE: The COM, IR, and Ethernet ports cannot be used to extend signals over the CATx cable connection between the receiver and the transmitter.

        Convenience Ethernet Port
        A convenience Ethernet port on the transmitter provides a 1000BASE-T network connection for a computer or other device, eliminating the need for a separate RJ-45 wall jack. The  Ethernet port on the front of the transmitter provides a pass-through to the parallel Ethernet port on the rear of the transmitter. The Ethernet port on the rear connects to the LAN.

        NOTE: The Ethernet port on the transmitter is independent of the Ethernet port on the receiver and cannot be used to extend Ethernet signals or interface with a control system.

        .AV Framework™ Technology Support
        In addition to a built-in web interface and control system programming, the built-in .AV Framework technology of the MPC3-201 and MPC3-302 control systems can be used to control the HD-RX-4K-210-C-E as a switcher. (For information about .AV Framework technology, visit www.crestron.com/avframework.)

        Crestron XiO Cloud™ Service Support
        The HD-MD-4K-300-2G is compatible with the Crestron XiO Cloud service, which is a platform for remotely provisioning, monitoring, and managing Crestron devices across an enterprise or an entire client base. The service enables installers and IT managers to deploy and manage thousands of devices in the amount of time it previously took to manage a single device. For more information, visit www.crestron.com/xiocloud.
