Crestron Expands its DigitalMedia™ Line to Serve Residential Market

Indianapolis, IN, September 8, 2011 - Crestron today introduced its new DigitalMedia™ Distribution Centers, the latest addition to its revolutionary one wire DigitalMedia 8G+™ solutions that deliver pure high -definition audio and video signals to multiple rooms. DigitalMedia Distribution Centers distribute pure uncompressed digital and analog audio/video content, plus Ethernet, control signals and more over long distances to up to six rooms, all over a single wire. Featuring next generation DigitalMedia 8G+ technology, DM -MD6X4 and DM -MD6X6 deliver reliable, analog and 1080p signal routing over any choice of wire including standard CAT5e, DM 8G® Cable or CresFiber® 8G. Now, it's easy and affordable to enjoy the magic of high -definition digital content throughout the home from HDTV receivers, Blu -ray Disc™ players, media servers, computers, and other HD digital sources.

"Our new DM Distribution Centers now make the DigitalMedia™ experience accessible to every size home and budget," said Crestron VP of Technology, Fred Bargetzi. "DigitalMedia is the only solution that brings all of your content together so you can enjoy it throughout the house. We make it easy."

DigitalMedia Distribution Centers accept, manage and distribute virtually any signal type, plus control and Ethernet, over distances up to 300 feet using standard CAT5e cable. Homeowners with existing Crestron CNX -PVID systems can upgrade to Crestron DigitalMedia 8G+ systems without rewiring. Revolutionary at the time, the wildly popular Crestron PVID was the first video over CAT5 solution and became the standard in thousands of homes worldwide. DigitalMedia provides an easy, seamless transition from analog to digital using existing wires.

"DM Distribution Centers provide the simplest connectivity for high -definition home entertainment throughout the house, while supporting the highest quality HD digital video formats and flawless HDMI switching to each room," adds Bargetzi.

More than just an HDMI switcher, DigitalMedia 8G+ distributes all analog and pure high -definition digital content - including 1080p with Deep Color, 3D high -definition video, 1920x1200 computer signals, digital AV, control, data, and Ethernet - long distances over a single DM 8G® cable or CresFiber® 8G, without any need for compression or repeaters.
