Crestron is showcasing its new DigitalMedia (DM) product line at Booth 5301. Crestron
Crestron’s DM-MD8X8 matrix switcher DM is the only complete, integrated solution that manages, controls and distributes all analog and uncompressed digital content over twisted pair or fiber. The core of a Crestron DM system consists of matrix switchers, repeaters and receivers. Flexible and modular, DM matrix switchers accept every type of signal and transmit them long distance as digital DM signals. Exclusive QuickSwitch HD technology pre-authorized HDCP keys and maintains a constant handshake for continuous, glitchfree HD switching. At the end points, DM receivers output HDMI to the display.
More than just another HDMI switcher or extender, Crestron DigitalMedia is a total digital system solution, accepting and distributing all analog audio and video, uncompressed digital signals, HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, HD-SDI, Ethernet and USB keyboard/mouse control. DM manages HDCP content protection, EDID resolution management and CEC device control. All content and data is managed, routed and transmitted long-distance over copper or multimode fiber.
Just like traditional AV distribution systems, the foundation of a DM system is the matrix switcher. DM matrix switchers are flexible, expandable card-based systems. The DM-MD8x8 and DM-MD16x16 feature a wide variety of input and output cards from which to choose. The DMMD8X8 is field-configurable to handle up to eight sources, and provide up to eight DM room outputs with expansion capability for even larger applications. The DMMD16X16 features 16 individually configurable and field-upgradeable input card slots, and a choice of eight or 16 factoryconfigured twisted pair or fiber DM outputs (or eight of each).
