Crestron bolsters DigitalMedia 8G line

AUTHOR: Inavate

Crestron has bolstered its line of DigitalMedia 8G distribution technology with the DM-RMC-200-C DigitalMedia 8G Receiver and Room Controller.

It features a built-in HD video scaler and 30-watt stereo amplifier. It provides a single HDMI output, plus speaker and line level audio locally to each display. DM-RMC-200-C accepts any video source from standard 480i to HD 1080p60 with Deep Colour, plus all computer sources.

DM-RMC-200-C extracts the audio from the HDMI signal for easy connection to high-quality external speakers or an amplifier.

The built-in 30-watt stereo amplifier conveniently provides power to drive a pair of local speakers, or the line output can be used to connect directly to an input on the display device, a pair of amplified speakers, or a local AV receiver, amplifier, or sound system.

For custom applications such as video walls, DM-RMC-200-C provides zoom capability on its output to display just a portion of the source image. Using this feature, multiple units may be combined to configure a high-definition video wall composed of up to 16 individual displays. All that is required is a separate DM-RMC-200-C for each display. Also, 3D to 2D conversion allows 3D content to be fed simultaneously to separate 3D and 2D displays for added flexibility and video performance in settings where multiple screen types are installed.
