Crestron | MP2E | Integrated AV Control System with Ethernet

Integrated AV Control System with Ethernet
Crestron's MediaManager is a comprehensive family of affordable products
fusing high-performance AV signal distribution, device control, and
facility-wide system management. MediaManager simplifies the art of ProAV
system design and installation with complete hardware, software, and
low-cost wiring solutions.
The MP2E combines an Ethernet control system and audio/video switcher in a
single box to provide a cost-effective total room control solution.
Easily configured with Crestron SystemBuilder™
software, the MP2E is all
that is needed to select and control all of the room's AV and
environmental resources including VCRs, DVD/CD players, projectors,
screens, lighting and more. With a unique combination of high-performance
features and performance at an affordable price, the MP2E is the ideal AV
control solution for college campuses, corporate meeting and training
centers, and other multi-room facilities.
4x2 Video Switcher
The high-bandwidth 4x2 video crosspoint switcher distributes video from
four composite sources to two destinations—great for displaying one source
on a plasma display while previewing another on a Crestron touchpanel.
Alternatively, the switcher may be configured as a 2X1 S-Video switcher.
Built-in video-sensing on each input can be used to provide device power
status information to the control system, and to detect signal presence
for auto-switching.
The video routing capabilities of the MP2E can be extended by adding the
C2N-MMS S-Video/RGBHV matrix switcher.
7x1 Audio Switcher/Processor
The 7x1 audio switcher provides balanced and unbalanced inputs for seven
stereo audio sources. Built-in volume, bass, treble and mute controls and
a 6-band graphic/parametric equalizer allow for precise adjustment and
complete control of the audio signal. All audio settings and presets may
be recalled and controlled from a Crestron touchpanel, keypad or other
user interface. Crestron's Digital Media Tools (DMT) software provides the
installer with a simple utility for setting input levels and equalization
2-Series Engine
At the heart of the MP2E is the powerful 32-bit Freescale ColdFire®
processor. Crestron's exclusive enhanced real-time operating system makes
the MP2E the fastest, most reliable control system available. The MP2E
features two built-in COM ports, four IR/Serial ports, four I/O
Versiports, and four isolated relays, and supports Crestron's full range
of touchpanels, keypads, and Cresnet peripherals.
Cresnet is the communications backbone for many Crestron touchpanels,
keypads, lighting controls, and other devices. The Cresnet bus is a
simple, yet flexible 4-wire network that provides rock-solid bidirectional
communication for numerous Cresnet devices.
Cresnet Slave Mode
Selectable Cresnet Slave Mode enables the MP2E to be configured as a
Cresnet slave device, effectively transforming it into a Cresnet expansion
module. Such flexibility can offer a cost-effective solution for system
expansion, providing a host of additional control ports in a single
Crestron pioneered the IP-based control system to harness the vast
possibilities of Ethernet and the Internet for remote control, monitoring,
programming, and diagnostics. The MP2E is designed to deliver the world's
most advanced IP control solution with full-duplex 10/100 Ethernet,
built-in Web server and email client, and support for both static and
dynamic IP addressing.
Crestron's award-winning e-Control 2 XPanel solutions offer the most
flexible range of IP control possibilities available. Using a Windows®
computer or CE/PocketPC™ PDA device, e-Control 2 provides an amazing
control GUI that looks and behaves just like a Crestron Isys® touchpanel.
Every Ethernet-enabled 2-Series control system works directly with
Crestron's exclusive RoomView Help Desk software for the industry's most
comprehensive facility-wide asset management solution.
Built-in SNMP support enables network management of Crestron control
systems using third-party SNMP software. As an alternate or supplement to
RoomView, SNMP allows full control and monitoring from the IT Help Desk
NOC in a format that's familiar to IT personnel.
All Ethernet-enabled 2-Series control systems support SSL (Secure Sockets
Layer), the industry standard for protecting sensitive network
IR Wireless Option
When equipped with an optional CNXRMIRD IR receiver, the MP2E provides a
low-cost wireless control solution using any of Crestron's IR wireless
touchpanels, or a third-party universal IR remote.
