Crestron Releases New QuickMedia Receiver

QM-RX1-2G Delivers AV Signal Routing and Control in a New Low Profile, Compact Design

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, June 3, 2009 - Crestron unveils its QM -RX1 -2G receiver, the latest addition to the QuickMedia (QM) family of AV transport solutions. QM integrates 16 separate cables into a single CAT5 -type wire, streamlining presentation system design and installation. Upon receipt of the QM signal the QM -RX1 -2G outputs the AV signals - which can include HD, high -res computer graphics and four channels of 24 -bit digital audio - to the display device.

With built -in display control, audio DSP and stereo amplifier, the QM -RX1 -2G provides complete connectivity for a display device, screen, lift, and speakers, and eliminates the need for outboard audio processing.

Perfect for installation behind a flat panel display or above a ceiling mounted projector, the QM -RX1 -2G mounts simply onto a standard 2 -gang US, UK, or European electrical box. Bidirectional RS -232 and IR/serial ports enable full control of the display device without additional wiring, and two relay ports are included on the QM -RX1 -2G to control a projection screen or lift. Signal routing occurs automatically, based on the input source selected at the QM transmitter.

A digital input port can accommodate a room occupancy sensor or power sensor for enhanced automation and monitoring. Connections for the display device and speakers are all positioned on the top and bottom of the receiver, while the QM cable and screen/lift connectors are behind the unit within the electrical box. The QM -RX1 -2G is available in black or white.
