Crestron DigitalMedia™ Wall Plate Provides Easy Digital Connectivity in Every Room


ROCKLEIGH, NJ - Crestron today announced the release of the DM -TX -400 -3G wall plate transmitter, which ensures simple and convenient connectivity for computers, laptops and the latest digital sources such as MacBooks® and Blu -ray players. The DM -TX -400 -3G provides a full assortment of HDMI, VGA and analog AV inputs. All signals are digitally transmitted digitally up to 450 feet over DigitalMedia™ (DM) cable. A DM -TX -400 -3G installs anywhere in the room for easy access, and can be wall, lectern or floor -mounted using a standard triple -gang box.

"DM wall plates give you remote input connectivity for virtually any AV source," explains Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. "They are the perfect solution for integrating digital and analog sources via a single cable." A USB HID device port allows a mouse/keyboard to control a computer or other host device in another part of the room or a central equipment rack.

DM provides a seamless upgrade path from analog to digital without replacing installed equipment. The Crestron MPS, for example, is engineered to transmit all analog signals from the MPS to the DM -TX -400 -3G over one VGA cable. A single DM cable connects the transmitter to a DM matrix switcher or room controller, which sends HDMI to the display.

Crestron DigitalMedia is the only complete, integrated solution for the digital age, accepting all analog audio and video, high -res computer, HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, Ethernet and USB keyboard / mouse control and distributing them over a single copper wire or fiber.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
