Crestron Upgrades DigitalMedia Platform

Crestron this week introduced DigitalMedia 8G+, the next generation of its single-wire digital AV network infrastructure technology.

 

Crestron this week introduced DigitalMedia 8G+, the next generation of its single-wire digital AV network infrastructure technology. DigitalMedia 8G+ makes implementing a DM network easier by offering a choice of DM 8G Cable, CresFiber 8G, or now standard Cat-5e wiring.

"With the launch of DigitalMedia 8G+, our DM technology continues to advance the AV industry in the digital revolution," said Crestron executive vice president Randy Klein, in a statement.

DigitalMedia is an end-to-end solution that carries virtually any mix of digital and analog AV signals over a single wire. Uncompressed 1080p HD video with Deep Color, 3D video, and high-definition computer signals, plus HD digital audio, control, data, and Ethernet, are transmitted 330 feet over standard Cat-5e or DM 8G cable, or 1,000 feet using CresFiber 8G.

Crestron officials said DigitalMedia 8G+ provides a future-proof infrastructure and ensures that the highest resolutions, Deep Color, 4K projection, and other emerging technologies can be efficiently distributed and managed.

"DigitalMedia 8G+ offers a proven solution for distributing all digital and analog signals over one-wire, using one IP address, and completely eliminates all HDCP issues," said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron vice president of technology, in a statement. "An entire DM network appears as a single device on the corporate LAN, which makes it easy to install and manage."
