The Crestron MPC family of AV room controllers delivers the most simple, cost-effective routing and control solution on the market today. Perfect for small classrooms and meeting rooms, the MPC-M5 features a built-in 2-Series control system fits onto a standard 2-gang electrical box with space to accommodate all wiring and connections. Seamless integration with Crestron RoomView software via Ethernet enables IT/AV managers to remotely monitor, manage, and control every room on the network.

A fully programmable user interface, the MPC-M5 is available in black or white, and features an attractive, intuitive layout of 10 pushbuttons with corresponding LED feedback, customizable backlit labeling, and wireless remote capability. It can be programmed for any function, including system power, input source selection, transport control, volume adjustment, and lighting presets. Like all MPC models, the MPC-M5 mounts in a wall or podium.

Through its onboard control ports, the MPC-M5 interfaces directly with the video display or projector, DVD player or TV receiver, projection screen, lift, occupancy sensor, and other room devices. In addition to high-speed Ethernet, there are a bidirectional RS-232 COM port, an IR/serial port, two relays, and two input ports right on the rear panel.

The MPC line is easy for instructors to learn and use, and can be implemented consistently in every room, lecture hall, or auditorium. The MPC-M5 communicates directly with Crestron’s exclusive RoomView help desk software. Built-in SNMP support also enables integration with third-party network-management software, allowing full control and monitoring from the IT Help Desk or NOC in a format that’s familiar to IT personnel.
