iMedia Receiver with Video & Mic Input Crestron
IM-RXV1-M & IM-RXV3-M
The iMedia Transport
The iMedia transport utilizes a single CAT5e* type cable to transmit computer RGB,
video, and stereo audio signals to a single display device. A typical XGA signal
(1024 X 768 pixels at 60 Hz) can be transmitted up to 84 feet using iMedia, while
higher resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 can be handled over shorter distances.
Composite video signals can be transmitted up to 218 feet. Audio is transmitted
digitally at 20-bit, 48 kHz resolution. Control and power signals are also contained
on the same wire, eliminating the need for separate control or power cables.
* For iMedia use CresCAT-IM cable, or quality CAT5e/CAT6 cable having a maximum delay skew of
15ns per 100m.
iMedia Recevier
Mounted at the display device, the IM-RXV1-M and IM-RXV3-M receive the
iMedia signal from up to three IM transmitters, breaking out the RGB, video, audio,
and control signals for connection to the display device. Adjustable bandwidth
compensation is provided to maximize image quality over long cable runs.
Integrated Amplifier
The IM-RXV1-M and IM-RXV3-M include a built-in 20 watt stereo amplifier to
drive a pair of 8 ohm speakers. Balanced line level outputs are also provided to allow
the audio signal to be connected directly to inputs on the display device or fed to a
pair of powered speakers. Onboard digital signal processing affords adjustment of
audio levels, plus bass, treble, and balance settings at setup via software.
Wireless Microphone Input
The inclusion of a balanced line input allows the connection of a wireless
microphone receiver, audio mixer, or mic preamp to support speech reinforcement
capabilities. Microphone level is adjustable right at the IM transmitter by holding the
SELECT button and turning the VOLUME knob.
Display Control
The IM-RXV1-M and IM-RXV3-M contain both IR and bidirectional RS-232 ports
to enable full control of the display device. Two relay ports are also included for
control of a projection screen or lift. In addition, the three digital input ports can
accept the direct connection of room occupancy sensors and power sensors for
enhanced automation and monitoring.
e-Control®2 and RoomView®
Despite their simple design and low cost, the IM-RXV1-M and IM-RXV3-M support
Crestron's powerful e-Control 2 XPanel and RoomView applications, delivering the
industry's best help desk and resource management solution for any number of rooms
equipped with iMedia.
Fast, Easy Setup
System setup takes mere minutes using iMedia Wizard software, providing easy
start-to-finish configuration, adjustment, and documentation.

Setup
Network Wiring
When wiring an iMedia system, consider the following:
•
Use Crestron Certified Wire.
•
Use Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment.
•
Provide sufficient power to the system.
CAUTION: Insufficient power can lead to unpredictable results or damage
to the equipment.
IM Wiring
Using a proprietary signal routing solution, RGBHV, composite video, audio, power
and control signals are all transported using a single cable solution called iMedia.
The iMedia transport system port is capable of managing computer RGB, composite
video, and audio signals simultaneously through one CresCAT-IM cable, simplifying
installations.
Routing CresCAT-IM cable (low-skew CAT5e) is less expensive and a much
simpler solution for wiring iMedia systems than routing multi-colored,
multi-conductor coax cable. All Crestron products using the iMedia transport system
are capable of sending and receiving iMedia signals via CresCAT-IM cable.
Installation of any iMedia device is as simple as installing one iMedia cable from
output to input. Installations are affordable and fast.
Pin Assignments
The pin assignment is based on the EIA/TIA 568B RJ-45 Jack standard.
Power is supplied to the IM transmitters via the audio circuit.
To determine which pin is number 1, hold the cable so that the end of the eight pin
modular jack is facing you, with clip down and copper side up. When looking down
at the copper connections, pin 1 is on the far right.

Crestron IM-RXV1-M & IM-RXV3-M
iMedia Receiver with Video & Mic Input
Signal Selection
The RGB signal connected to the IM transmitter is delivered to the display device
(e.g., projector) via the RGBHV output of an IM receiver. The composite video
signal connected to the IM transmitter is delivered to the display device (e.g.,
projector) via the composite video output of an IM receiver. Each IM transmitter
possesses a SELECT button (IM transmitters with video have two SELECT
buttons) that activates an input. The receiver automatically routes the last activated
input to the RGB or composite video output and deactivates any prior selection. In
addition, the display's power and input selection commands can be controlled via the
IR or COM port.
Video Resolution and Cable Length
The receiver can accomplish frequency compensation on each input to achieve
correct operation. This compensation scheme is effective for CresCAT-IM cables as
long as the maximum skew of 15 ns per 100 meters is not exceeded.
NOTE: For proper operation and performance of every iMedia system, always use
CresCAT-IM cable.

Uploading and Upgrading
Crestron recommends using the latest programming software and that each device
contains the latest firmware to take advantage of the most recently released features.
However, before attempting to upload or upgrade it is necessary to establish
communication. Once communication has been established, files (for example,
programs or firmware) can be transferred to the device). Finally, program checks can
be performed (such as creating an IP table) to ensure proper functioning.
Establishing Communication
Use Crestron Toolbox for communicating with the IM-RXV1-M and IM-RXV3-M;
refer to the Crestron Toolbox help file for details. There are two methods of
communication.
Direct Serial Communication
