Crestron® DM® Switchers provide the foundation for a complete DigitalMedia™ system, delivering an advanced 4K ultra high-definition AV signal routing solution that’s extremely flexible and installer-friendly. The DM-MD16X16affords ultra fast switching and pure, lossless distribution of HDMI® and other signals to support all the digital media players, HDTV receivers, computers, cameras, and display devices that fill any modern home or commercial facility. DigitalMedia thoughtfully manages all of the disparate AV signals and devices to deliver a transparent user experience, and to ensure an optimum video image and audio signal at every location.
The DM-MD16X16 is field-configurable to handle up to 16 AV sources of virtually any type. The outputs are also field-configurable to provide up to 16 DM, HDBaseT®, and/or HDMI outputs, or up to eight H.264 streaming outputs, in a single chassis.[1]A full selection of DM switcher input and output cards, DM transmitters, and DM receivers provides extensive connectivity throughout a residence or commercial facility, supporting a complete range of analog and digital signal types - all through one switcher!
Integrated Ethernet networking and USB distribution provide a complete connectivity solution combined with built-in Crestron control[2] for managing the displays and other room devices without necessitating any additional wiring. User-friendly operation, setup, and troubleshooting tools are provided through the DM-MD16X16 front panel, or via Crestron Toolbox™ software, to make setting up a complete multiroom 4K video distribution system easy.
4K Ultra HD
Crestron DigitalMedia continues to advance the standard for digital AV signal distribution, delivering the world’s first end-to-end 4K system solution. From day one, the DM-MD16X16was designed to meet the extreme bandwidth requirements for handling 4K and Ultra HD video signals.Support for 4K video also ensures support for the latest generation of computers and monitors with native resolutions beyond 1080p and WUXGA.
DigitalMedia 8G™
As the leader in HDMI and control system technologies, Crestron developed DigitalMedia (DM) to deliver the first complete HD AV distribution system to take HDMI to a higher level. DigitalMedia allows virtually any mix of HDMI and other AV sources to be distributed throughout a room, building, or campus. The latest generation of DMis called DigitalMedia 8G (DM 8G®). Engineered for ultra high-bandwidth and ultimate scalability, DM 8G provides a true one-wire lossless transport for moving high-definition video, audio, Ethernet, and control signals over a choice of twisted pair or fiber optic cable.
DM 8G handles uncompressed Full HD 1080p, Ultra HD, 2K, and 4K video signals with support for 3D, Deep Color, and HDCP 2.2.[3]Audio capabilities include the simultaneous distribution of stereo and multichannel surround sound signals, with support for high-bit rate 7.1 audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Atmos®, and DTS-HD Master Audio™ as well as uncompressed linear PCM. All signals are transported over one CAT type twisted pair cable or one strand of multimode or single-mode fiber. DM 8G enables wire distances up to 330 feet (100 m) via DM 8G+® (DM 8G over twisted pair copper wire)[4,9], 1000 feet (300 m) via DM 8G Fiber (DM 8G over multimode fiber)[5,9], or 7.5 miles (12 km) via DM 8G SM Fiber (DM 8G over single-mode fiber).
