MPC3-101-B 3-Series® Media Presentation Controller 101, Black
A wall-mounted, PoE-powered 3-Series Control System® automated processor and control panel in one. Features a modern appearance with customizable backlit capacitive buttons. Mounts in a 1-gang U.S. electrical box. A retrofit 2-gang U.S. wall mounting option is also available.
The 3-Series® Media Presentation Controller 101 (MPC3-101) is a wall-mounted, PoE-powered 3-Series Control System® automated processor and control panel in one. Its modern appearance and customizable backlit capacitive buttons provide an ideal user interface for controlling AV and other functions. It offers fully-programmable functionality, supports web and cloud-based configuration and management, and integrates with Crestron Fusion® software as part of a complete managed enterprise solution.
Crestron® MPC3 series controllers are perfect for classrooms, meeting rooms, lecture halls, and training facilities – wherever a simple yet powerful controller is needed but space is limited. Use the MPC3-101 to control a video display or AV system, adjust lighting and window shades, or any other custom application.
The MPC3-101 is designed for flush-mount installation in a wall using a 1-gang U.S. electrical box (not included). It can also be installed in a podium with no back box. A retrofit mounting bracket is also available to allow installation over a 2-gang U.S. electrical box, which offers an easy upgrade solution to replace an older MPC-M5 series controller.
Customizable Backlit Capacitive Buttons
The MPC3-101 features nine backlit capacitive buttons, which can each be labeled using the icon chips provided, or custom labeled using laser-engravable chips (sold separately). Each button is backlit blue when active and white when inactive to provide clear indication of what media source or lighting scene is currently selected. Four additional buttons are included at the bottom along with a volume gauge for control of volume, mute, and power.
All buttons on the MPC3-101 are custom programmable to control any device or function. Built-in proximity sensing wakes the buttons as you approach, and autobrightness control maintains optimal visibility of the buttons under varying lighting conditions.
For information about ordering custom icon chips, refer to the MPB3/MPC3-BTN3-B ENGRAVED web page. Refer to the PDF version of the MPC3-101 spec sheet for the supplied icon chips.
3-Series® Control Engine
The MPC3-101 features an integrated, enterprise-grade 3-Series control processor. Crestron 3-Series delivers a dynamic and secure control system platform capable of managing a room full of disparate technologies. Its Modular Programming Architecture (optional) allows the MPC3-101 to run multiple programs simultaneously for increased efficiency and flexibility. Rock solid networking and IP control afford seamless integration with other systems and devices, with add-on control capability using Crestron touch screens, wireless remotes, and mobile device apps with remote management through Crestron Fusion® software and XiO Cloud® service.
No Programming Required!
Built‑in .AV Framework™ software technology delivers a fully functional AV presentation system with simplified web‑based configuration and a choice of control options and add‑ons. For complete details on the capabilities supported by .AV Framework, visit www.crestron.com/avframework .
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE technology, the MPC-101 gets its operating power directly 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) simply connects in line with the LAN cable at any convenient location. Crestron PoE switches (CEN-SW-POE-5 or CEN-SWPOE-16) may also be used to provide a total networking solution with built-in PoE. All PoE injectors and switches are sold separately.
