        This product has been discontinued. Please contact Crestron True Blue Support at 1-888-CRESTRON for a replacement solution or more information.

        The MPS-100 is a complete presentation control and signal routing solution for boardrooms and classrooms. Integrating the control system, multimedia switcher, audio controls and amplifier into a single 2-space rackmount package, the MPS-100 eliminates the need for separate components without forfeiting performance or flexibility.

        The MPS-100 is a complete presentation control and signal routing solution for boardrooms and classrooms. Integrating the control system, multimedia switcher, audio controls and amplifier into a single 2-space rackmount package, the MPS-100 eliminates the need for separate components without forfeiting performance or flexibility.

        System Switcher
        Right out of the box, the MPS-100 provides high-performance switching of 2 video and 3 RGB computer sources to a single projector or flat-panel display. Composite, S-Video, component and RGBHV signals can be routed to the appropriate inputs on the display device, with control of the display provided via Ethernet, RS-232 or IR. Input signal sensing is provided on every video and RGB input to enable auto-switching functionality and provide device power status information to the control system. Selectable sync impedance on each RGB input helps accommodate cable runs of varying lengths.

        NEW! RGB Pass-thru mode provides a quick path to integration with the groundbreaking Crestron DigitalMedia™ system. With just a single 15-pin VGA cable connected to a DM-MD6X1 DigitalMedia switcher, DMC-DVI input card, or any other DM product with an RGB input, the MPS-100 automatically routes whatever video signal is selected – whether RGB, component, S-Video, or composite – allowing seamless conversion to digital for distribution to HDTV displays and projectors throughout your facility.

        Touchpanel Output
        A second discrete output is provided on the MPS-100 to feed a preview signal to the system touchpanel or other monitor. This output is controlled separately from the main display output, allowing a different source to be viewed on the touchpanel. The touchpanel connection is facilitated through a choice of QuickMedia® (QM) or Crestron Home® (CH) CAT5 Balanced Video outputs, simplifying wiring to a wide range of Crestron touchpanels. The QM output supports high-resolution RGB and HDTV plus audio, while the CH output is limited to standard video and HDTV only (dependent upon the capabilities of the touchpanel).

        QuickMedia®
        The QM Touchpanel output can also be used to feed signals straight to the primary display device, providing a very streamlined, low-cost, long-distance wiring solution. The Crestron exclusive QuickMedia transport transmits high-resolution RGB, HD video, and stereo program audio signals up to 450 feet over a single inexpensive CAT5e type cable[1]. Just one CRESCAT-QM cable and a QM receiver are all that is required for complete signal routing and device control, eliminating all the bulky, expensive cabling that would otherwise be needed.

        Audio Features
        Five stereo audio inputs accept balanced or unbalanced line-level signals from computers and other program audio sources. To accommodate a wide range of signals, adjustable input compensation is employed to help maintain consistent volume levels when switching between sources.

        In addition to volume adjustment, the MPS-100's main PROGRAM output includes adjustable bass, treble, balance, and mute. Professional balanced line level outputs are provided, with mute relays for "thump" protection upon power up. A separate "fixed-level" LINE OUT with electronic mute provides a second set of balanced outputs to feed a recording device or assistive listening system.

        The QM Touchpanel output is controlled separately from the other audio outputs, allowing a different program source to be monitored on the touchpanel, or output to other audio equipment by way of an appropriate QM receiver or other QuickMedia device.

        Built-in Amplifier
        A 40-watt amplifier is built into the MPS-100, with three models available offering the choice of 8-ohm stereo, 70V mono, or 100V mono outputs. For larger rooms requiring more power, the MPS-100 supports plug-and-play compatibility with Crestron QM-Series amplifiers.

        Front Panel Control
        Out of the box, the MPS-100 front panel supports easy pushbutton routing of input sources to each of the outputs, and audio volume adjustment using the volume control knob. Dedicated buttons and indicators are also provided for separate control of system power and projector power. In addition, five preset buttons are included for custom functions such as lowering a projection screen, closing blinds, or selecting a lighting preset.

        The front panel label strips are easily customized using Crestron Engraver software or standard 3/8" tape labels, allowing for the clear designation of each input, output, and preset button. When selected, these functions will also appear on the LCD display as generic names (Input 1, 2...), or as custom names (DVD, Podium PC, Screen Up, etc.).

        Easy setup of the MPS-100 is facilitated through the LCD display without necessitating a computer. Together with 4 softkey buttons, 4 menu navigation buttons and the volume knob, the LCD enables configuration of IP network, audio, and other system settings. For security, the front panel controls can be password protected or locked out.

        2-Series Control System
        Integrated into the MPS-100 is a Crestron 2-Series Ethernet control system complete with e-Control®2 Web server and a host of RS-232, IR, digital input and relay control ports for integration with third-party equipment. A basic AV presentation room with projector, screen, keypad or small touchpanel, and wireless remote control can easily be set up in minutes using the MediaManager Wizard software. Or, a fully custom system can be programmed using SystemBuilder™ or SIMPL™Windows® software. Either way, the MPS-100 works with Crestron RoomView® Help Desk software, the industry's most comprehensive facility-wide asset management solution.

        Room Control Options
        Without requiring any programming, the MPS-100 can be controlled simply using a Crestron APAD LCD Controller or a selection of keypads. With custom programming, our complete line of Isys™ touchpanels and MediaManager FlipTops is supported. Equipped with an optional CNXRMIRD IR receiver, the MPS-100 allows any Crestron IR wireless touchpanel or handheld remote to be used for a low-cost wireless control solution. Or, adding an RF wireless gateway or Wi-Fi access point enables use of a wide range of 1-way and 2-way RF wireless handheld remotes and touchpanels.
