The Crestron® HD-MD-400-C-E delivers an incredibly simple and costeffective multimedia presentation solution for classrooms and meeting
spaces. It allows a laptop or mobile device to be connected to one of three
inputs at a table or podium, and routes the signal to a display or projector
up to 230 feet (70 meters) away. An additional AV source can be connected
at the display device location or through an optional wall plate. Fully
automatic operation detects when a source is connected or disconnected
at any input and turns the display on and off, alleviating the need for any
control panels or remotes. Built-in scaling ensures an optimal video image
for SD and HD video signals, as well as for high-res computer signals.
Composed of a compact transmitter and receiver pair, the HD-MD-400-C-E
installs in minutes and requires no special programming. The transmitter
mounts beneath the table or inside the podium, while the receiver mounts
behind the display or above the projector. The only connection required
between the transmitter and receiver is a single CAT type twisted pair
cable.[1] A LAN port on the receiver allows for connection to an Ethernet
network to enable easy setup and configuration via a Web browser.
Advanced functionality is enabled through integration with a Crestron
control system.
Multimedia Computer/AV Auto-Switcher
The HD-MD-400-C-E handles high-definition video and computer sources
with resolutions up to Full HD 1080p60, 1080i30, or WUXGA 1920x1200.
Two HDMI® inputs, one VGA input, and one analog audio input are provided
on the transmitter to support the connection of computers, mobile devices,
and other media sources. An additional HDMI input is provided on the
receiver, which may be wired to an optional wall plate or used to connect
a Crestron AirMedia® wireless presentation gateway or other multimedia
source installed permanently at the display device.
The inputs on each component can be configured to switch automatically
or be controlled through a Crestron control system. Auto-detection on
each input enables plug-and-play simplicity, supporting HDMI, DVI, or
Dual-Mode DisplayPort signals via any HDMI input, and VGA, RGB, or
component video via the VGA input.[2,3] The analog audio input works in
tandem with the VGA input.[4]
HD-MD-400-C-E HD Scaling Auto-Switcher & Extender 400
A single HDMI output if provided on the receiver to feed the display device.
This output can support either HDMI or DVI signal types.[5] A stereo analog
audio output is also included to feed an optional sound bar or amplifier.[6]
HD Signal Extender
A single CAT type cable (sold separately) links the HD-MD-400-C-E
transmitter and receiver together. This cable can be up to 230 feet
(70 meters) in length, offering an ideal signal extender solution for virtually
any room with a single table or podium and one display device.[1]
HD Scaler
One might assume that any modern display device should support
whatever sources you connect to it. In fact, many displays just can’t
handle all the different formats and resolutions you’re likely to encounter
day-to-day in a dynamic presentation environment. With its built-in
professional scaler, the HD-MD-400-C-E enables support for a complete
range of digital and analog signals, ensuring that every source displays
reliably and beautifully. Automatic calibration is achieved using the
display’s EDID [7] — just connect the receiver to the display and it
intelligently converts and enhances the signal for optimal appearance on
the display screen.
EDID Format Management
To ensure that every source gets displayed at its optimal resolution and
format, the HD-MD-400-C-E provides comprehensive management of
the EDID information that passes between the display, scaler, and source
devices. Most applications require no changes to the default settings. For
applications requiring custom configuration, the HD-MD-400-C-E allows
for easy assessment of each device’s format and resolution capabilities,
with the ability to configure signals appropriately for the most desirable
and predictable behavior.

QuickSwitch HD™ Technology
Handling digital media signals means handling HDCP (High-bandwidth
Digital Content Protection), the encryption scheme used by content
providers to protect their DVDs, Blu-ray™ discs, and broadcast signals
against unauthorized copying. Viewing HDCP encrypted content requires a
source device to “authenticate” each display and signal processor in the
system and issue it a “key” before delivering an output signal. Crestron
QuickSwitch HD manages these keys to ensure fast, reliable switching and
immunity to “blackouts.”
Audio Extracting
Its analog audio output allows the HD-MD-400-C-E to extract the stereo
audio signal from digital sources to feed a sound bar, amplified speakers,
or a separate sound system.[6]
Embedded Device Control
To deliver fully automatic operation of the complete system, the
HD-MD-400-C-E can turn the display device on and off via its HDMI
connection using CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) commands, or via
the built-in RS-232 port.[8] For advanced applications using a Crestron
control system, all of the HD-MD-400-C-E’s HDMI and RS-232 ports can
be utilized to attain fully-programmable control of the display, sources, and
other devices in the room.

Enterprise Management Option
The optional .AV Framework™ Hub (CEN-AVF-HUB [9]) can be added
to enable centralized monitoring using Crestron Fusion® Enterprise
Management Software. A single “AVF Hub” can support up to 15
HD-MD-400-C-Es connected over an Ethernet LAN. Refer to the
CEN-AVF-HUB spec sheet for additional information.
Control System Integration
Fully programmable functionality can be enabled through integration with
a Crestron control system.
Low-Profile Installation
The transmitter and receiver components are each designed to be
mounted to a flat surface or placed on a shelf. Each component is compact
enough to fit discreetly inside a presentation lectern, beneath a table, on
a wall behind a flat-panel display, or on the ceiling above a projector. They
can even be attached to a single rack rail in the back of an equipment
cabinet. Both components are powered together using a single wall mount
power pack (included), which may be connected either at the receiver or
at the transmitter location. Power is carried between the transmitter and
receiver over the signal extension link connection.
Easy Setup
Simplified setup, configuration, and basic operation is provided through a
Web browser user interface. Essential controls and status indicators are
also provided on each unit for easy testing and troubleshooting without a
computer during installation.

Notes:
1. The maximum cable length for the signal extension link between the transmitter and receiver is
230 feet (70 meters) using Crestron DM-CBL-8G DigitalMedia 8G cable or third-party CAT5e
(or better). Shielded cable and connectors are recommended to safeguard against
unpredictable environmental electrical noise. All wire and cables are sold separately. The signal
extension link is a proprietary interface and is not compatible with HDBaseT®, DigitalMedia™
(DM®), Ethernet, or any other CATx based interface.
2. Each HDMI input requires an appropriate adapter or interface cable to accommodate a DVI or
Dual-Mode DisplayPort signal. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables are available separately.
3. The VGA input can accept RGB and component video signals through an appropriate adapter
(not included).
4. The analog audio input currently works exclusively with the VGA video input. The ability to
pair the analog audio input with an HDMI video input will be enabled through a future
firmware update.
5. The HDMI output requires an appropriate adapter or interface cable to accommodate a DVI
signal. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables are available separately.
6. The analog stereo audio output is only active when the input is receiving a 2-channel stereo
signal via either the analog input or HDMI.
7. EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) is data embedded in an HDMI, DVI, or VGA signal
that enables the display device to tell the scaler what resolutions and formats it can support,
allowing the scaler to configure itself automatically to feed an optimal output signal to
the display.
8. IR control capability will be enabled through a future firmware update.
9. Item(s) sold separately.
10. Supports any input resolution and scan rate that has a pixel clock of 165 MHz or lower.
11. With or without reduced blanking.
12. With reduced blanking only.
13. The transmitter and receiver are powered together by a single wall mount power pack
(included), which may be connected to either the transmitter or receiver, not both.
