Picture all your video and computer resources displayed in perfect harmony and clarity within a dramatic graphical environment all on one high-definition screen. Imagine the ability to seamlessly control the presentation and annotate your ideas with a stroke of your finger.

Now you've imagined the DVPHD High-Definition Digital Video Processor from Crestron® — the world's only multi-window video processor that displays high-res computer and high-definition video signals with HDCP, provides a fully-customizable HD graphics environment, and enables real-time annotation and touch screen control — all in a modular, scalable hardware platform that's easy to install!

The DVPHD is configurable to handle up to eight different inputs of virtually any type, including HDMI®, DVI, DisplayPort (Multimode), HD-SDI, and analog signals.[1,2] Industry-leading support for HDCP ensures compatibility with content-protected DVD, Blu-ray Disc®, digital HDTV, and multimedia computer sources. Advanced high-definition image processing achieves astounding realism and detail for every input signal, with the ability to display up to eight separate video images at once, or switch fluently between them using alluring digital transition effects and customizable graphics.

DVPHD Display

Multi-Window Video Processor
The DVPHD displays up to 8 simultaneous, full-motion video windows[3] on any high-resolution monitor, projector, or flat panel display. The video windows can be displayed on screen in any combination, with enhanced dynamic text capabilities for labeling each window. Video images can even fade or fly in and out over your own personalized background using digital transition effects and customizable graphics, lending enhanced flow and vibe to the total presentation. Each window is fully-scalable and independently controllable, allowing for display at any position, size, or aspect ratio.

What is QuickSwitch HD?QuickSwitch HD®
Crestron exclusive QuickSwitch HD technology eliminates the annoying latency and blanking that plagues other digital switchers and video processors. Switching between inputs of any type is fast and fluid on the DVPHD.

Advanced Image Processing
On any sized display, whether viewing a full-screen image or multiple windows with graphics, the DVPHD scales its output perfectly to match your display's native resolution and aspect ratio. VXP® video processing with fully adaptive deinterlacing achieves exceptional realism and rich detail from standard-definition, high-definition and computer sources.

Customizable Graphics
Besides displaying video and computer images, the DVPHD includes our 24-bit graphics engine with alpha channel transparency for creating dramatic visual effects and conveying all kinds of useful data. Use your choice of background textures, full color images, logos, and other design elements to create the perfect look and feel for your application. Use dynamic graphics and text, crawling text, pop-up windows, animations, and multimode objects to deliver your message with clarity and style.

Why does HDCP matter?HDCP Management
The DVPHD is the first multi-window video processor of its kind that handles HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) to work with a complete range of digital video players, cable and satellite receivers, multimedia computers, displays, and projectors — now and into the future. While other manufacturers ignore HDCP completely, the DVPHD actually performs advanced HDCP signal management, allowing up to eight HDCP encrypted sources to be combined on one high-definition screen.

Touch Screen Interface
The DVPHD can transform a third-party touch screen monitor, pen display, whiteboard, or touch-enabled flat panel display into a full-featured, large-scale Crestron touch screen.[4] This opens a host of possibilities for special control and presentation applications such as interactive kiosks, museum and tradeshow exhibits, training rooms, and command centers. Employing Crestron DNav technology, the DVPHD lets users scroll effortlessly through menus and toolbars with a natural sweep of the finger to select from lists of touch screen apps, media titles, and more.

As an alternative to touch screen, the graphical interface can also be navigated using an onscreen cursor driven by a wired or wireless mouse, or by discrete commands from a separate touch screen, computer, keypad, or handheld remote.

Vast Touch Screen Support
The DVPHD is compatible with more touch screen displays than any other touch screen interface on the market. Many dozens of models are supported from numerous manufacturers, with more being added all the time. With a vast array of sizes available in a variety of tabletop, flush mount, and other specialized configurations, there's sure to be a solution that's perfect for your custom application.[4]

V-Panel™ Integration
A Crestron V-Panel display works impeccably with the DVPHD to deliver a very stylish and flexible high-definition touch screen solution for a range of uses. The V-Panel display connects to the output of the DVPHD via a DigitalMedia™ transmitter or switcher, affording a very streamlined single-wire interface to the V-Panel up to 450 feet (137 m) away.[5]

HD Annotation
Only Crestron lets you annotate in real-time over any high-definition video image. Whether conducting a boardroom meeting, training seminar, or classroom lecture, annotation helps put the fine point on any presentation. In combination with a touch screen display, the DVPHD provides the essential annotation tools to make your point with maximum impact, letting you illustrate your thoughts over video and computer sources, and sketch out ideas on a whiteboard screen — easily and intuitively. Brush sizes and colors are selectable on the fly for ultimate clarity. Moving images can be frozen on screen to allow pinpoint annotation over a still picture. You can even annotate over two or more different sources at once for easy side-by-side comparison of multiple related images.

Guidebar® Technology
For the ultimate HD annotation solution, Crestron offers the DVPHD-GB, a version of the DVPHD optimized for annotation with dual outputs for separate presenter's touch screen and audience display. The DVPHD-GB features "Guidebar" controls on the presenter's touch screen to enable command over annotation, AV, lighting, and other functions. The Guidebar resides conveniently at the top, bottom, or sides of the presenter's screen without obscuring the video image, and is only visible to the presenter, so the audience sees just the full-screen video image with annotations. Please refer to the DVPHD-GB spec sheet for complete information.

Interactive Annotation
Crestron exclusive Remote Annotation capability lets up to 90 individual touch screen users "mass annotate" over the same image, supporting efficient and effective interaction between participants in a classroom, courtroom, council chamber, operating room, or command center.

Multi-Format Support
The DVPHD is custom-configurable to accommodate a full range of input signal types.[1] Any resolution up to 1920 x 1200[6] can be supported, with an incredible 125 pre-defined "standard" resolutions, and the ability to define any custom resolution. Available inputs include:

  • HDMI - Supports high-definition digital video with HDCP and Deep Color. Handles resolutions up to HD 1080p60 or 1080i30, and WUXGA 1920x1200. Each HDMI input includes a complementary HDMI output to pass the incoming video and audio signals through to another HDMI device. HDMI inputs are also compatible with DVI and DisplayPort Multimode sources. The DVPHD can be configured with up to four HDMI inputs.[2,7]
  • DVI-I - Supports DVI digital video signals, as well as RGB/VGA or component analog signals. Handles HDCP and Deep Color at resolutions up to 1080p60 and WUXGA. Also handles 1080i interlaced signals via analog. DVI is also compatible with HDMI and DisplayPort Multimode sources. The DVPHD can be configured with up to four DVI-I inputs.[2,7]

HD Display Output
Through its DVI-I output, the DVPHD can handle virtually any display device, providing a DVI, HDMI, or analog RGB signal at any resolution up to 1920 x 1200. Interlaced 1080i output is also supported via DVI or HDMI only. A QM output is included, allowing easy extension of the RGB output signal to feed a display device up to 450 feet away.[2,6,7,9,10]

Auto-Configuration
The DVPHD is easy to install, configuring itself automatically to match all the different sources and displays as you connect them. Input sync-detection sets the optimum format, resolution, and scan rate for each source[8], while EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) adapts the output to match the connected display device. Manual adjustments and built-in test patterns are also available to allow fine adjustment of every input and output when desired.

Installer-Friendly Setup
Whether testing a new install or setting up for final operation, the DVPHD provides several easy methods for accessing all the essential controls and settings. On-screen setup is available right from the main output, navigable using a touch screen or mouse. The onboard Web server affords an alternate setup option, allowing for secure configuration and operation from any location using an ordinary Web browser on a networked computer. Setup can even be attained right from the front panel using the large LCD display.

Right out of the box, the DVPHD provides several display scenarios to choose from, with the ability to define a fully-working setup in minutes. Built-in test patterns even eliminate the need for an external pattern generator for proper display calibration. Advanced functionality and appearance is afforded through custom programming using the Crestron suite of software solutions.

Unparalleled System Integration
Both Cresnet® and high-speed Ethernet are standard on the DVPHD, providing full connectivity and seamless communication with one or more Crestron control systems to deliver the ultimate in system integration and advanced presentation control. The DVPHD is also well-suited for integration with DigitalMedia systems, allowing for even greater input expansion and distribution to multiple displays.
