DigitalMedia Private Network Mode delivers simplified network management and reduces cost of multiple IP addresses

Rockleigh, NJ, May 4, 2012 – Crestron DigitalMedia, the complete and proven standard that delivers high-definition audio and video signals long distance over one wire, now operates using just one IP address (Private Network Mode). With private network mode the DigitalMedia switcher uses only one IP address, and all DigitalMedia peripherals, such as receivers and transmitters, are moved off the public network. Private Network Mode significantly streamlines home and organizational infrastructures, conserving IP addresses, reducing costs and simplifying system management and troubleshooting.

“Private network mode drastically simplifies integration with the LAN and other IT infrastructure -- whether in a single home or massive corporate campus,” says Crestron VP of Technology, Fred Bargetzi. “Now, all DM peripherals are managed by the switch, and you only need one IP address. All this with virtually zero configuration.”

Beginning today, new DigitalMedia switchers will include Private Network Mode functionality. For currently installed DM switchers, download the latest update from the Crestron website to get the latest features. No programming changes are necessary.
