Easy installation, swap out MPS for DMPS and you're digital
Installation is easy so you can seamlessly transition any classroom, conference room or boardroom to true HD digital by simply swapping out an existing MPS with DMPS-300-C. You can use the existing CAT5e wiring that's already in place, so there are no new wires to pull or connectors to terminate.
All-in-one design for the digital age
Integrated DM 8G+™ inputs and outputs make connections to every room simple, providing a true one-wire interface for remote sources and display devices using your choice of standard CAT5e wire or premium DM 8G® Cable. Supporting wire lengths up to 330 feet (100 meters), DMPS-300-C can also provide an ideal interface to a central DigitalMedia switcher as part of a larger multi-room or room-combining system, offering unlimited scalability for any size campus.
Whether in the classroom, boardroom or videoconference room, DMPS-300-C makes complex signal routing easy for any room full of AV and computer sources, microphones, display devices, speaker zones, touch screens and codecs.
