Comment

The Crestron HD-MD-400-C-E is the most cost-effective way to install an auto input switcher for 2 HDMI’s as well as 1 VGA with auto input sensing. The product offers an additional input for a wireless presentation device at the screen location. It also uses CAT 5/6 between TX and RX allowing for routing through an existing conduit. Over and above these functions, it also allows for remote switching on of a monitor or projector.

AUTO SENSING

The Crestron HD-MD-400-C-E Transmitter-Receiver delivers an incredibly simple and cost-effective multimedia presentation solution that is particularly suited for classrooms and meeting spaces. In essence, this device allows a laptop or mobile device (either HDMI or VGA) to be connected to one of three inputs at a table or podium and routes the signal to a display or projector up to 70 meters away.

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 complicated panels or remote controls. Built-in scaling ensures an optimal video image for SD and HD video signals, as well as for high-resolution computer signals, and the HD-MD-400-C-E unit supports integration with a Crestron control systems for fully programmable functionality.
