Crestron is making its commitment to Ultra HD (4K) well known. The company just announced plans to start shipping its end-to-end 4K distribution system.
Under the DigitalMedia moniker, Crestron is now offering the DMC-4K-HD Input Card, the DMC-4K-HD-DSP Input Card, Type 8 DMCO Output Cards, the DM-RMC-4K-100-C DM Receiver, the DMB-4K-I-HD Input Blade, the DMB-4K-O-C Output Blade, the HD-EXT3-C Extender, the HD-XSPA AVR with integrated DM Receiver, the HD-RX3-C Receiver, and the HD-TX3-C Transmitter.
“DigitalMedia is more than ‘4k ready;’ it’s 4K already,” said Tom Barnett, Crestron’s marketing director. “In fact, DM was built to handle 4K since our very first 8x8 switcher. While others are ‘getting ready,’ we’re shipping a complete 4K solution today. Now, your customers can distribute 4K and other resolutions, such as 2560x1440 output from Apple laptops, that require more signal bandwidth than switchers designed for 1080p and 2K distribution can provide.”
The company is also offering discounts through its DM 4K Upgrade Program. Besides saving a few bucks, Crestron says that the upgrade is easy as swapping out cards and receivers! If all eligible cards in the switcher are upgraded, Crestron will even restart its 3-year warranty. Ask your dealer for more information.
