Crestron DigitalMedia

How Video Works

The only fully-engineered, field-proven, end-to-end solution for managing and distributing digital AV and control signals

 

DigitalMedia At Work

Whether everyone is in the same room or miles apart, creating collaboration spaces with easy to deploy and easy to use technology that is also secure and managed on the corporate network is essential to success.

DigitalMedia In the Classroom

Passive learning is history. Interactive and collaborative learning is critical to engage students and develop their minds and skills. Today, there’s no “back of the room,” and sometimes no room at all. The right technology connects teachers, students, and information in ways that were not imaginable only a few years ago.

 

DigitalMedia Technology Is....

END TO END 4K SUPPORT

DigitalMedia continues to deliver the best image quality and fastest switching available today. Only DM® provides complete, end-to-end 4K/60 scaling and distribution for presentation and collaboration in business, education, medical, or security.

Content protection for the 4K era

Currently installed systems won't transmit HDCP 2.2 protected content, but upgrading is easy with DigitalMedia. DM includes everything you need to deliver fully compliant end-to-end HDCP 2.2 4K distribution solutions right now.

Network AV Solutions

DigitalMedia delivers low bandwidth, high quality network AV with or without a matrix switcher using standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure and devices. Network AV is perfect for video distribution between rooms, buildings, or cities.

Wireless

BYOD presentation is a necessity. But most wireless solutions rely on Wi-Fi® and are not managed on the network, don’t leverage standard security protocols, and don’t automatically disconnect at the end of meetings. AirMedia® is uniquely designed for commercial use.

Case Studies

Why choose Us?

Rocket FuelRedwood City, California

The new headquarters includes more than 50 meeting rooms, all standardized on Crestron DigitalMedia. Larger rooms use a DM 8X8 or 32X32 switcher, transmitters, receivers and scalers. Smaller rooms use a DMPS-300-C Presentation System.

Why choose Us?

Perion NetworksTel Aviv, Israel

The forty-room conference center is built on the Crestron DigitalMedia platform. AirMedia is used throughout; DMPS-300-C presentation systems are in the conference rooms; the executive meeting room and auditorium use DM 16x16 matrices with 4K support.

Why choose Us?

University of OttawaOttawa, Ontario, Canada

The collaborative learning studio relies on Crestron DigitalMedia™. It’s so popular that more rooms are already planned. Students are no longer on social media during class. Now they are “eager to participate; they feel more motivated and involved.”



 

Plug In & Present

With our family of simple DM solutions, all you have to do is connect your laptop or tablet and your content automatically appears on the room display.
