Crestron DigitalMedia™ Presentation System 300 Leads Transition From Analog to Digital at ISE 2012

DMPS-300-C Delivers High-Definition Presentation Solution for Classrooms, Boardrooms and Video Conferencing; New Analog Trade-in Program Offers 50% Credit for any Crestron MPS

Crestron will unveil its new DigitalMedia™ Presentation System 300 (DMPS-300-C), the next generation of the legendary MPS Multimedia Presentation System, at ISE 2012 in Amsterdam. At a budget-friendly price point, DMPS-300-C provides everything needed to equip any room for the highest quality HD presentations. Intelligently combined into an efficient all-in-one component, DMPS-300-C delivers a complete high-definition presentation control and signal routing solution that integrates a control processor, multimedia matrix switcher, mic mixer, audio DSP and amplifier with DigitalMedia 8G+™ technology. DMPS-300-C takes in every source signal, processes, mixes and amplifies the audio, and transmits it all flawlessly over a single CAT5e wire.


50% trade-in credit for old analog systems
In addition, a new promotion gives 50% trade-in credit for any Crestron MPS system toward the purchase of a new DMPS. Simply replace analog video equipment with Crestron DigitalMedia™. The valuable trade-in credit makes it easy for dealers, and affordable for organizations, to upgrade analog rooms to digital with a state-of-the-art DMPS-300-C system.

"Sooner or later we'll all have to upgrade to digital," says Sean Goldstein, Crestron VP of Marketing. "With a 50% trade-in credit on all Crestron analog MPS products, plus very generous trade-in credits on analog systems from other brands, there's never been a better time to do it. We've removed all the barriers so everyone can enjoy true HD in any room."

"DMPS-300 combines the popular MPS Multimedia Presentation System family of products with our high-output DigitalMedia 8G+ AV network technology to deliver the highest quality HD presentations, no matter what sources or displays you have," said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron VP of Technology. "As we lead the industry's transition from analog to digital, DMPS offers the only integrated solution that can handle both analog and digital AV, plus control. For organizations seeking to upgrade their old analog presentation systems, DMPS-300-C immediately brings any classroom or conference room into the digital age, and with our analog trade-in program, upgrading now is more affordable than it's ever been."

Easy installation, swap out MPS for DMPS and you're digital
Installation is easy so you can seamlessly transition any classroom, conference room or boardroom to true HD digital by simply swapping out an existing MPS with DMPS-300-C. You can use the existing CAT5e wiring that's already in place, so there are no new wires to pull or connectors to terminate.

All-in-one design for the digital age
Integrated DM 8G+™ inputs and outputs make connections to every room simple, providing a true one-wire interface for remote sources and display devices using your choice of standard CAT5e wire or premium DM 8G® Cable. Supporting wire lengths up to 330 feet (100 meters), DMPS-300-C can also provide an ideal interface to a central DigitalMedia switcher as part of a larger multi-room or room-combining system, offering unlimited scalability for any size campus.

Whether in the classroom, boardroom or videoconference room, DMPS-300-C makes complex signal routing easy for any room full of AV and computer sources, microphones, display devices, speaker zones, touch screens and codecs. DMPS-300-C provides high-performance matrix switching of seven simultaneous analog or digital sources to up to four HDMI® or DVI display devices, plus up to three analog audio components.

In addition to flexible matrix video switching, DMPS-300-C adds onboard gated microphone inputs with enhanced DSP, plus line and mic level mixing to deliver the most complete, easy-to-use digital presentation system available.
