Crestron Demonstrates Live 4K Switching at ISE 2014
4K is here and DM® can handle it now
At ISE in February, attendees and exhibitors alike crowded the Crestron booth to
witness what they thought did not yet exist: real-time 4K switching, with multiple
sources going through a DM® switcher to multiple displays.
Sure, other manufacturers proudly claim that they have "matrix frames" that are
"4K ready." But they should've been ready last year - or back in 2009, as DigitalMedia™
was. From inception, DM matrix frames were "ready" to handle 4K, and we're now delivering
the cards and end points.

Crestron 4K Certified Devices
To build a solid distributed 4K system, you need solid 4K sources and displays.
But compatibility issues between different brands, new cable length limitations,
and mismatched resolutions all have the potential to compromise a 4K system. So
how do you know which 4K products to trust?
Leave it to the experts at Crestron. Our engineers in the DigitalMedia Lab are taking
the industry lead in 4K product testing. It's so new that we're actually painstakingly
building our own 4K test equipment because none exists yet. We're working on it
as fast as we can. Doing it right takes time. But it will be worth the wait − when
you see the Crestron 4K Certified logo on a 4K source or display you'll have total
confidence that you can trust it to work in an integrated system.
Challenges of Distributing 4K Video - White Paper
4K Ultra HD video delivers stunning beauty and resolution. But like most new technology,
it comes with challenges, as well. Enormous bandwidth (10 Gbit/s) is required to
deliver 4K video. This places unprecedented demands on infrastructure. Learn everything
you need to know to be successful with 4K signal distribution in this
Crestron DigitalMedia™ 4K Product Family
4K Ultra HD is here and DigitalMedia can handle it now. The DM product line features
a complete range of devices to enable reliable 4K matrix switching using Crestron
4K Certified sources and displays.
New DMC Training for 4K
Our DMC-D and DMC-E courses have been enhanced for 4K and renamed DMC-D-4K and DMC-E-4K, respectively. If you're not yet a DMC-D, you can take the entire DMC-D-4K course free online now.
Already a DMC-D or DMC-E?
Update your DMC-D or DMC-E certification to DMC-D-4K or DMC-E-4K, respectively. It's easy. Simply take our DigitalMedia 4K Update online course and pass the exam. We will then add -4K to your certification credentials.
If you're a DMC-T
No additional training or 4K certification is required for DMC-Ts because the infrastructure and termination requirements for 4K are the same as before. Everyone with DMC-T certification is now a DMC-T-4K.
