Perfect for AV control in classrooms

This product is perfect for AV control in classrooms or any other budget-sensitive applications. Even though hardware cost is a consideration, not having to program these systems makes this solution truly affordable.

Using this fully-functioning presentation system for every room makes the meeting experience smoother. Each of these presentation systems resides on the managed network.

You can use the MP-B10 everyday in a typical classroom, meeting room, lecture hall, or training facility. It has 10 programmable “hard key” buttons. These can be programmed for any function, such as system power, input source selection, transport control, and lighting presets.

You can also facilitate custom backlit labeling of the buttons by using an assortment of pre-printed labels or by using Crestron Engraver software. You can also adjust audio volume and other parameters by using the continuous-turn control knob and the LED bargraph.

The MP-B10 requires just one wire for operation. It can be powered through the network wiring, using either Cresnet or PoE (Power-over-Ethernet). It also uses a built-in IR receiver to provide a gateway for Crestron IR wireless touchpanels and handheld remotes.
