Crestron today announced the release of fiber versions of the DigitalMedia 8G™ transmitter/switcher, matrix switcher input and output cards and receiver/room controller.

Uncompressed digital signals, HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, Ethernet and USB keyboard/mouse control are seamlessly distributed up to 1000 feet. All signals and communications are managed over the single multimode fiber strand, making installation faster, cheaper and easier than ever.


The world's first 8 gigabit AV distribution and control network, DM 8G delivers unprecedented, ultra -high speed and long distance transmission of all data, Ethernet and control, plus analog and digital AV signals. "DigitalMedia 8G is the fastest and most powerful AV network ever developed," explained Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. "As a true one -wire platform, 8G also saves integrators a lot of time and money, significantly reducing material and labor costs of cabling and the number of terminations."
