Crestron Provides Added Functionality with Six New QuickMedia (QM) Transmitters

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, May 21, 2009 - The latest additions to the QM line of transmitters come in a variety of form factors, including portable/rack -mountable, wall and floor mount. A key new feature is a built -in Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) chip, which supports the entire computer graphics VESA standard.

Other common features include built -in signal sensing on each input, to trigger automatic input selection and other operations, such as device power control. A single IR output port enables programmable control of a local DVD player, multimedia computer or other IR -controllable AV device.

The QM -TX2 -MC and QM -TX2 -CC both have built -in 2x1 switchers. Local switching control can be achieved via the front panel, no programming required. The QM -TX2 -MC has RGB and video (composite, s -Video, or component) inputs; the QM -TX2 -CC has two RGB inputs.

The QM -WMC -VCC (with a built -in 3x1 switcher) and QM -WCC -2 (with a built -in 2x1 switcher) are wall plate models that fit in standard 2 -gang electrical boxes using a Decora® style faceplate (not supplied). Both include audio breakaway, to allow the audio inputs to be switched independently of or linked to their corresponding video/RGB inputs. Buffered monitor pass -thru connectors are also provided.

The QM -WMC -VCC has individual video inputs for composite, component, and RGB signals, each with corresponding stereo audio, to accept connections from portable AV devices and computers. The QM -WCC -2 has dual RGB and stereo audio inputs to support two separate computers or other RGB sources.

Both the QM -WCC -1 (wall mount) and QM -FBCC -1 (floor mount) have a single RGB input with stereo audio to connect with a computer or other RGB source.

The QM -FBCC -1 has the smallest form factor in the QM transmitter line. It installs cleanly in a Hubbell SystemOne floor box or poke -through using their Style Line® Sub -plate and Universal Cover. Its slim dimensions and standard screw spacing may also make it suitable for use with a variety of other floor box systems.
