The HD-CTL-101 is an 8K Smart Display Controller with HDMI® connectivity that provides a variety of options for controlling displays without a control processor. Ideal for unified communications, digital signage, and presentation spaces, the HD-CTL-101 can be configured to automatically power displays on and off based on schedule, room occupancy, or video sync detect. The HD-CTL-101 can also be utilized in residential systems to control a variety of devices such as garage doors and TV lifts.
CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) can control the source and display devices via the HDMI connection, potentially eliminating the need for dedicated serial cables or IR emitters, as well as eliminating the need for a control system. CEC over the HDMI output can also enable the display devices to be turned on or off automatically.
Built-In Web Interface
Full configuration of the HD-CTL-101 can be accomplished using the built-in web interface. To simplify system installation, the configuration of a single unit can be downloaded to a computer or mobile device and then uploaded to multiple HD-CTL-101 units.
The HD-CTL-101 provides comprehensive management of EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) to ensure that every source is displayed at the optimal resolution and format. For applications requiring a custom configuration, the HD-CTL-101 enables assessment of the format and resolution capabilities of any device that is connected to the HDMI output. The HD-CTL-101 provides the ability to configure signals appropriately for the most desirable and predictable behavior.
8K60 4:4:4 and HDR Support
The HD-CTL-101 supports video resolutions up to 8K60 with 4:4:4 color sampling. HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision® are also supported.
The HD-CTL-101 includes advanced security features and protocols. Using 802.1X authentication, Active Directory® credential management, PKI authentication, TLS, SSH, and HTTPS, the HD-CTL-101 provides a true enterprise-grade AV switcher.
XiO Cloud® Service Support
The HD-CTL-101 is compatible with the XiO Cloud service, which is an IoT (Internet of Things) platform for remotely provisioning, monitoring, and managing Crestron devices across an enterprise or an entire client base. Built on the Microsoft® Azure® software platform and using industry-leading Azure IoT Hub technology, the XiO Cloud service enables installers and IT managers to easily deploy and manage thousands of devices.
