Crestron debuts multiple products at InfoComm 2016
Crestron expanded its DigitaMedia series and range of digital signal processors at InfoComm 2016.
Crestron unveiled two additions to its DigitaMedia 3-Series presentation systems for single-display applications. The all-in-one DMPS3-4K-50 and DMPS3-4K-100-C systems feature a built-in Crestron 3-Series control system, analog and digital AV switching, 4K scaler, and direct LAN connectivity with Crestron Fusion software for network management.
Ideal for small rooms, the DMPS3-4K-50 is suited to connecting local sources to a local display, while the DMPS3-4K-100-C is designed to connect local sources to an extended display.
Crestron’s latest audio offerings include a line of five digital signal processors (DSPs) featuring a DSP programming tool, in addition to network-controlled, monitored and modular utility amplifiers that support audio over IP using Dante audio networking. All systems integrate with DigitalMedia, touch screens, Fusion Cloud, and UC technology.
The channel-strip architecture allows programmers to save, modify, and manage a library of custom strips. Built-in tools include a spectrum analyser, virtual mixer, EQ editor, and Crestron speaker profile library to ensure quick acoustic setup. New controls and functions can be added on-the-fly so programmers no longer need to re-wire and recompile to make changes. Its Saros line of speakers has also added a soundbar for commercial applications.
Crestron also launched its .AV Framework software at the show. The software allows integrators to deploy the presentation systems without custom programming, featuring auto-switching, plug-and-play connectivity with Crestron Connect It cable caddies, and automatic display on/off via CEC. The .AV Framework is now available in the latest DMPS3 Series presentation systems.
The company’s stand also highlighted its latest HDMI auto-switcher and extender pair for meeting rooms and classrooms. The HD-MD-400-C-E provides HDBaseT extension, a scaler for optimal image display for HD resolutions up to 2K, automatic switching, automatic display on/off via CEC, and ethernet connectivity, with no need for special programming. Both devices are powered using a single wall mount power pack (included), which can be connected either at the receiver or at the transmitter location.
