More Info

The CS501 Control Switcher from Lumens centralizes control of multimedia devices to streamline technology implementation and use. In addition, easy setup speeds the integration of the devices into a unified system. The main components of the switcher system are the CS501C Main Box, CS501P Control Panel, and CS501C CAT5 Converter.

The easy to install CS501 Control Switcher uses a single controller and a separate switcher. Whether used in a school, boardroom, broadcast / duplication studio, showroom, or conference room, this switcher provides signal processing and source control capabilities for personal computers, notebooks, document camera, audio and DVD players, and cable televisions. These devices are controlled using infrared or RS-232 signals. In addition, output to the monitor and projector can be controlled independently for flexibility.

Easy to Use & Centralized Control of All Multimedia Equipment

The CS501 Switcher offers a complete solution for managing a range of multimedia devices. From a single panel mounted on the wall or a lectern, it allows you to control a wide array of multimedia equipment. With clearly marked buttons, it allows you to roll down the projector screen, turn on projectors, microphones, document cameras, computers, or DVD players, and be ready to teach. A simple push of a button turns off all devices, including the classroom lights. The system eliminates the need to juggle multiple remote controls or to worry about forgetting to turn off all the electronic equipment.


The switcher can be connected with a wide range of AV and multimedia equipment. The system controls the connected devices using either IR or RS-232, providing additional flexibility in installation. In addition, this switcher delivers an independent output signal to monitors and projectors so as to give educators the flexibility to view images on a projector while simultaneously displaying DVD or document camera images using the computer monitor.

Easy to Install

A single box combines an audio visual controller and signal switcher in one box so installers can easily hook up cable TVs, computers, monitors, document cameras, microphones, speakers, projectors, and projector screens. The system utilizes standard cables such as CAT5, VGA, and C-video cables, eliminating the need for special cables or connectors. The included CAT5 converter allows for simple connection to projectors, which are often mounted on ceilings. In addition, the separate user control panel is also wired to the main switch / controller box via a standard CAT5 cable. The sleek and easy-to-read user panel can be mounted on a wall or lectern for easy access.
