Crestron now shipping industry-first end-to-end DigitalMedia™ 4K distribution system

New DM® 4K input cards, output cards, receivers, and extenders available now; big discounts available for upgrading existing card-based DM systems to 4K

Rockleigh, NJ, March 28, 2014 - Solidifying its leadership position in 4K Ultra HD, Crestron announced today that it is now shipping the AV industry's first and only end-to-end 4K distribution system.


"DigitalMedia is more than '4k ready'; it's 4K already," said Tom Barnett, Marketing Director. "In fact, DM was built to handle 4K since our very first 8X8 switcher. While others are 'getting ready,' we're shipping a complete 4K solution today. Now, your customers can distribute 4K and other resolutions, such as 2560x1440 output from Apple® laptops, that require more signal bandwidth than switchers designed for 1080p and 2K distribution can provide."

The new DM products now shipping include the DMC-4K-HD Input Card, DMC-4K-HD-DSP Input Card, Type 8 DMCO Output Cards, DM-RMC-4K-100-C DM Receiver, DMB-4K-I-HD Input Blade, DMB-4K-O-C Output Blade, HD-EXT3-C Extender, HD-XSPA AVR with integrated DM Receiver, HD-RX3-C Receiver, and HD-TX3-C Transmitter.

DM 4K Upgrade Program

For a limited time, Crestron is offering big discounts when our dealers upgrade card-based DM systems with the DM 4K Upgrade Program. Upgrading systems to 4K is as simple as swapping out cards and receivers. Crestron will ship the 4K replacements to dealers in advance so there's no system down time for their customers. Even better, Crestron will restart the 3-year warranty on the chassis if all eligible cards in the switcher are upgraded.

Testing 4K products, so you don't have to

The Crestron 4K Certification ensures that sources and displays meet the demands of a 4K distributed system. Crestron engineers in the DigitalMedia Lab rigorously test 4K products to ensure they work in a matrix-switched environment. Only those that do are awarded the Crestron 4K Certified logo. Now, for integrators and end users, finding a database of 4K products they can trust is as simple as visiting crestron.com/4K.
