DMC-HD

HDMI® Input Card for DM® Switchers

Provides a single HDMI® input for any DigitalMedia™ Switcher with modular plug-in input card slots.

The DMC-HD is an input card for a Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher, providing one HDMI® input. The HDMI input supports HD 1080p60 video and WUXGA computer signals with HDCP, Deep Color, 3D, and multi-channel HD lossless audio - all through a single HDMI cable. The HDMI input can also handle DVI and DisplayPort Multimode signals using an appropriate adapter or interface cable[1].

In addition to the HDMI input, the DMC-HD also includes HDMI and stereo analog audio outputs, and a USB HID device port. The HDMI output can be used to pass the input signal through to a local audio processor or video monitor, or to feed a second DM switcher for output expansion purposes. The analog audio output, which features programmable volume control, breaks out the stereo audio signal from the HDMI input and passes it through to feed a multi-room audio distribution system.[2]

NOTE: For applications requiring the simultaneous distribution of surround sound and 2-channel audio signals, use model DMC-HD-DSP.

The USB HID port connects to the source device (i.e. computer or media server) at the central equipment rack, allowing it to be controlled by a mouse or keyboard located in another room, or at a presentation lectern, conference table, or some other remote location.

The DMC-HD may also be used with the DMCI DigitalMedia Card Interface to create a very handy problem-solving tool with many useful functions. For instance, it can be used to extract an analog audio signal from an HDMI or DisplayPort Multimode stream. As part of a complete Crestron control system, it can be used to detect and manage EDID and input source format information, to enable CEC device control, to assess a device's HDCP capabilities, and to extend a USB HID mouse/keyboard signal over Ethernet.

Please refer to the DigitalMedia Resources Webpage at http://www.crestron.com/dmresources/ for additional design tools and reference documents.

Notes:

  1. HDMI requires an appropriate adapter or interface cable to accommodate a DVI or DisplayPort Multimode signal. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables available separately.
  2. The analog stereo audio output is only active when the input source is outputting a 2-channel stereo signal. For applications using a multi-channel surround sound source, use model DMC-HD-DSP which provides simultaneous surround sound and stereo down-mix output signals.
