Crestron Extends Next Generation DM® 3.0 4K Product Line
Posted on Monday, January 12, 2015
transmitter, receiver, input and output cards, distribution amplifiers, DM
Ultra Cable, and 4K/60 Hz scaler grow the industry’s first and only complete 4K
certified distribution solution.
January 12, 2015 – The DM 3.0 family of products, the latest
generation of DigitalMedia™, continues to expand with more
standard-setting 4K products for every room.
“The world is adopting 4K at breakneck speed, which is rendering 2K technology
obsolete just as rapidly. There’s simply no point in purchasing 2K technology
any longer,” said Fred Bargetzi, Chief Technology Officer at Crestron.
“Additionally, we’re seeing more and more higher resolution devices, such as
2560x1440 output from Apple® laptops, which require more signal
bandwidth than switchers designed for 1080p and 2K distribution can provide.
We’re shipping the only complete certified 4K distribution solution today, and
we’re adding more 4K products all time.”
Crestron announced today that it is now shipping the following new products:
World’s first and
only 4K/60 Hz scaler
What makes the 4K DigitalMedia Receiver & Room Controller w/Scaler
(DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C) unique is its exclusive
scaler chip, developed in-house by Crestron. Other AV companies simply don’t
have this capability. It can convert any resolution and frame rate to any other
resolution and frame rate, up to 4096x2160 at 60 Hz.
transmitter and receiver
Both the Wall Plate 4K DigitalMedia Transmitter (DM-TX1-4K-C-1G) and Wall Plate 4K
DigitalMedia Receiver (DM-RX1-4K-C-1G) are powered over DM, so all
you need is a single cable. Using CEC, many devices can be controlled right
through their HDMI connections, eliminating the need for serial cables or IR
in both black and white, both devices utilize a standard electrical box for
tidy, discreet installation.
4K HDBaseT® input cards
The 4K DigitalMedia Input Card for DM Switchers (DMC-4K-C) and 4K DigitalMedia Input Card
w/Downmixing for DM Switchers (DMC-4K-C-DSP) provide a single DM or HDBaseT
input for any DM switcher with modular input card slots, and handles 4K and
Ultra HD video resolutions. Available with a DSP for stereo downmixing of
multichannel input signals to enable simultaneous distribution of multichannel
and 2-channel audio.
4K HDMI® output cards
The 2-Channel 4K DigitalMedia Output Card for DM Switchers (DMC-4K-HDO),
shipping Feb. 1, 2015, provides two 4K HDMI outputs and two balanced audio
outputs with volume control.
DM Ultra Cable
DigitalMedia Ultra Cable, Plenum Type CMP (DM-CBL-ULTRA-P) and DigitalMedia Ultra Cable,
Non-Plenum Type CMR (DM-CBL-ULTRA-NP) are proven to deliver error-free 4K HDMI signals
via HDBaseT over longer distances than other category cables. DM Ultra Cable is
the only cable that exceeds HDMI specification, which allows fewer than one
pixel error per billion, for HDBaseT distribution of 4K content up to 100
meters. A CAT7a shielded twisted pair cable, it’s engineered to deliver optimum
performance for 10 gigabit Ethernet; perfect for any application that requires
high-performance category cable.
4K HDMI distribution
The 1-to-2 4K HDMI Distribution Amplifier (HD-DA2-4K-E), 1-to-4 4K HDMI Distribution
Amplifier (HD-DA4-4K-E), and 1-to-8 4K HDMI Distribution
Amplifier (HD-DA8-4K-E) split one 4K HDMI source to two,
four, or eight separate outputs, respectively.
“These new products offer further proof that no other solution can compete with
the complete package you get with DM 3.0,” added Bargetzi. “With DM 3.0 you get
the most innovative products, an installed base of millions of HDMI and HDBaseT
ports, the most comprehensive training, and award-winning service and support,
including our new live online assistance. DM continues to evolve, innovation
More to come
Crestron will be introducing even more DM 3.0 4K products in 2015, further
cementing its position as the only complete 4K certified distribution system.
