A modular output card for DM-MD8X8, DM-MD16X16, or DM-MD32X32 switchers. Provides two independent 4K DM 8G+® outputs, plus one HDMI® output in parallel with the first DM 8G+ output. Supports 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR video signals.
The DMC-4KZ-CO-HD is an output card designed for use with any card-based Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher. It provides two independent DM 8G+® outputs, plus one HDMI® output. The HDMI output carries the same signal as the first DM 8G+ output. Both DM 8G+ outputs are compatible with HDBaseT®. Using a single CAT type twisted pair cable, each DM 8G+ output enables connection to a DM 8G+ receiver, the input of another DM® switcher, or an HDBaseT certified display device or receiver.
4K60 4:4:4 & HDR Support
Crestron DigitalMedia (DM) was the world’s first AV signal distribution solution to deliver end-to-end 4K signal management for large-scale commercial and residential applications. DM “4KZ” cards and endpoints enable new and existing DM systems to handle full 4K60 4:4:4 video signals, as well as HDR video signals (HDR10), without having to replace any wiring or switchers. DM 4KZ technology employs VESA® Display Stream Compression (DSC) to enhance the capabilities of DigitalMedia to handle the extreme bandwidth requirement of resolutions beyond 4K30 4:4:4 and 4K60 4:2:0. DSC is a lightweight, line-based 2:1 compression standard that delivers visually lossless performance for 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR signals. DSC is applied only to 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR input signals. All other signals are transported uncompressed.
Any Crestron DM system that supports 4K can be upgraded to handle 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR by simply installing a DM 4KZ based transmitter or input card at each source connection and a DM 4KZ based receiver or output card at each display connection. The DMC-4KZ-CO-HD is designed to replace an existing DMC-4K-CO-HD or DMC-4K-CO-HD-HDCP2 output card without requiring any extra configuration or programming. Upgrading to the DMC-4KZ-CO-HD is only necessary when using the card’s HDMI output.
Engineered for ultra high-bandwidth and ultimate scalability, DigitalMedia 8G+ (DM 8G+) provides a true one-wire lossless transport for moving high-definition video, audio, power, Ethernet, and control signals over twisted pair copper wire.
