Crestron bolsters DigitalMedia AV distribution family

AUTHOR: Inavate

Crestron has added the DM-RMC-SCALER-C to its DigitalMedia AV distribution family. The digital receiver and room controller features a built in HD scaler.

The product provides a single HDMI output that produces high-definition resolution in any room on a DigitalMedia 8G+ network. Regardless of the display used, DM-RMC-SCALER-C will accept and scale any video source, from standard 480i to HD 1080p60 with Deep Colour.

It features 3D to 2D conversion and allows 3D content to be fed simultaneously to separate 3D and 2D displays, where multiple display screens are operating on the same network. For custom applications such as video walls, the DM-RMC-SCALER-C provides a zoom capability on its output to display a portion of the source image. With a separate DM-RMC-SCALER-C for each display, a video wall of up to 16 displays can be created using this feature.

The compact, low profile unit can be hidden behind a display or above a ceiling mounted projector. Using a single CAT5e or DM 8G cable, the DM-RMC-SCALER-C connects to a Crestron DigitalMedia switcher or transmitter and delivers a clean signal up to 100 meters without any degradation.

Crestron’s DigitalMedia 8G+ is the only one-wire high definition AV network. 8G+ distributes all analogue and digital content – including 1080p with Deep Colour, 3D HD video, 1920x1200 computer signals, digital audio, control data and Ethernet – long distances over a single cable without the need for compression or repeaters.
