The Crestron AirMedia 2.0 AM-300 enables secure wired and wireless presentation in lounges, lobbies, and open spaces; in addition to integrating with popular calendaring platforms. It's easy to deploy and manage, and increases workflow by turning underutilized spaces into productive meeting spaces.
The AirMedia® Presentation System 300 (AM-300) enables secure wired and wireless presentation in lounges, lobbies, and open spaces, and integrates with popular calendaring platforms. It is ideal for organizations with a dispersed workforce, open floor plans, and reliance on mobile devices to present. It is secure, easy to deploy and manage, increases workflow, and facilitates collaboration by turning underutilized spaces into productive meeting spaces while supporting the many different platforms and services employees and guests have on their personal devices.
The AM-300 device mounts invisibly behind a wall mount display and enables wired or wireless presentation with auto-switching. It features built-in AirMedia 2.0 wireless presentation capability, plus HDMI® and DM® inputs, HDMI out to the display (HD or UHD), and auto-on/off display control via CEC, serial, or IR. Connecting any source selects that input automatically and instantly displays the source image on the display. There’s no programming required, no dongles to plug in, and no remotes to lose or batteries to replace.
Crestron AirMedia technology allows for wireless presentation of content from a laptop, smartphone, or tablet device via a Wi-Fi® wireless network. With AirMedia, anyone can walk into the room with a Windows® or MacBook® laptop and connect without wires, enabling the presentation of any content including Full HD video at frame rates up to 30 fps. iPhone®, iPad®, and Android® devices can present PowerPoint®, Excel®, Word, and PDF documents, as well as pictures, videos, or any app content with full-screen mirroring.
In addition to AirMedia, the AM-300 includes an HDMI input for direct connection of a mini-PC or other local source, or a portable laptop computer via an optional wall plate or cable. A DM input (DM 8G+®) is also provided, allowing a DM 8G+ transmitter to be installed at any convenient location in the space to facilitate connection of a laptop or other source. The DM input may also be used to connect to a DM switcher, which may be located up to 330 feet (100 meters) away, to support the display of content from another room or other remote location. The DM input supports 4K signals, and the HDMI input supports HD 1080p signals.
When no presentation source is connected, the AM-300 displays a customizable welcome screen on the room display with simple instructions for connecting and presenting. Integration with Microsoft® Exchange, Office 365®, G Suite™, or Crestron Fusion® calendaring allows the space’s availability and details about the current scheduled meeting to appear on screen. As the meeting progresses, gentle notifications appear periodically to indicate how much time is left in the meeting and what’s scheduled next for the space. Pop-up messages, sent from Crestron Fusion, may also appear prominently on screen in the event of an emergency or other important announcement.
AirMedia presentation spaces can be centrally monitored and managed through integration with the Crestron Fusion enterprise management service. Adding an optional wireless occupancy sensor enhances monitoring and automation capabilities by reporting and logging when people are present in the space, and turning the display on and off accordingly. Crestron Fusion also supports room scheduling, with the ability to integrate with an expanded selection of popular third-party calendaring applications.
