Notes:

  1. For DM 8G+ or HDBaseT wiring, use Crestron DM-CBL-8G DigitalMedia 8G Cable, Crestron DM-CBL DigitalMedia Cable, Crestron DM-CBL-D DigitalMedia D Cable, or third-party CAT5e (or better) UTP or STP. Maximum wire length for DM 8G+ is 330 ft (100 m) between devices. Shielded cable and connectors are recommended to safeguard against unpredictable environmental electrical noise which may impact performance at resolutions above 1080p. Refer to the Crestron DigitalMedia Design Guide, Doc. #4546 for complete system design guidelines. DM 8G+ is compatible with HDBaseT Alliance specifications for connecting to HDBaseT compliant equipment. All wire and cables are sold separately.
  2. Item(s) sold separately.
  3. DM 8G+ receivers with built-in scaling include the DM-RMC-SCALER-C and DM-RMC-200-C. For the HDMI output, use the HD-SCALER.
  4. HDMI requires an appropriate adapter or interface cable to accommodate a DVI or DisplayPort Multimode signal. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables are available separately.
  5. Any wiring that is connected to a PoDM or PoH PSE port is for intra-building use only and should not be connected to a line that runs outside of the building in which the PSE is located.
