Crestron® MPC is a family of 2-Series control systems designed for installation in a wall or podium. Perfect for classrooms, meeting rooms, lecture halls, and training facilities, the MPC-M5 provides a fully-programmable user interface featuring an attractive and intuitive layout of pushbuttons with customizable backlit labeling and wireless remote capability.

Available in white or black, the MPC-M5 is constructed to handle the rigors of everyday use in a corporate or educational environment. An assortment of programmable control ports provides for interfacing with AV equipment, lighting, shades, screens, and other room devices. Ethernet connectivity allows for integration with Crestron Fusion® Cloud as part of a complete managed enterprise solution.

Control Simplified
The MPC-M5 is engineered to be easy to integrate and use, yet versatile enough to suit each application perfectly. Its 10 programmable “hard key” buttons can be freely programmed for system power, input source selection, transport control, volume adjustment, lighting presets, and any other functions. Custom backlit labeling of the buttons is facilitated using an assortment of pre-printed labels or Crestron Engraver software.

Wireless Remote
A range of options is available for adding wireless remote control to the MPC system. Its built-in IR receiver allows the use of any Crestron or third-party IR remote that supports RC-5 commands. Adding a CEN-GWEXER wireless gateway enables support for Crestron infiNET EX® and ER wireless remotes and touch screens.[1]

Built-in Control Ports
Through its onboard control ports, the MPC-M5 interfaces directly with the video display or projector, projection screen, lift, occupancy sensors, and other devices in the room. In addition to high-speed Ethernet, there is a bidirectional RS-232 COM port, an IR/serial port, two relays, and two digital input ports right on the rear panel.

Power over Ethernet
Using PoE technology, the MPC-M5 gets its operating power right through the LAN wiring. PoE (Power over Ethernet) eliminates the need for a local power supply or any dedicated power wiring. A PoE Injector (PWE-4803RU [1]) simply connects in line with the LAN cable at a convenient location. Crestron PoE switches (CEN-SW-POE-5 or CEN-SWPOE-16 [1]) may also be used to provide a total networking solution with built-in PoE.

Crestron Fusion® and SNMP
As part of a complete managed network in a corporate enterprise, college campus, convention center, or any other facility, the MPC-M5 works integrally with Crestron Fusion Cloud to enable remote scheduling, monitoring, and control of rooms and technology from a central help desk. Built-in SNMP support enables integration with third-party network management software, allowing control and monitoring in a format that’s familiar to IT personnel.
