Crestron announced its new HD Digital Transport and Distribution System Specification (HD-DTDS) and DigitalMedia Certification (DMC) program. The new spec establishes an industry standard, and the DMC program ensures that AV professionals are fully educated and adhere to the standard. This sets a high benchmark for digital AV systems and gives clients the confidence that the industry remains a trusted and valued technology resource.

There are two levels of certification:

  • DigitalMedia-certified Designer (DMC-D)
    This track is a free one-day course that concludes with an exam that must be passed to earn certification and is a prerequisite for DMC-E. A DM-certified Designer understands the fundamental differences between analog and digital systems and the unique design considerations needed to ensure reliable operation. Consultants are widely adopting the HD-DTDS specification and earning DMC-D certification.
  • DigitalMedia-certified Engineer (DMC-E)
    The DMC-E certification builds upon the DMC-D class in a three-day program that details every aspect of system installation and commissioning. DM-certified engineers demonstrate proficiency in system setup, diagnostics, testing, and reporting. Only a DMC-E is equipped to fully execute and support a DM project. Written into the specification, only dealers with a DMC-E on staff will be qualified to bid on projects designed using the HD-DTDS. There is a $1,000 course fee for DMC-E courses, and seats are limited to only two people per company per class.
