DigitalMedia CAT Receiver & Room Controller 100
Provides a controller and interface for a high-definition display device as part of a complete DigitalMedia System. Connects to the DM CAT output of a DM Switcher or Transmitter via DM Cable. Includes a USB HID device port for connecting a mouse/keyboard to control a computer or other equipment at a different location. Also includes IR, RS-232, and Ethernet control ports.
The DM-RMC-100 provides a convenient one-box interface solution for a single display device as part of a complete Crestron® DigitalMedia system. It functions as a DM® CAT receiver and control interface, providing a single HDMI® output along with Ethernet, USB HID, and a variety of control ports. Its compact, low-profile design allows the DM-RMC-100 to be installed discreetly behind a flat panel display or above a ceiling mounted projector. It connects to the head end or source location using a single Crestron DM® cable.
As the leader in HDMI and control system technologies, Crestron developed DigitalMedia (DM) to deliver the first complete HD AV distribution system to take HDMI to a higher level. DigitalMedia allows virtually any mix of HDMI and other AV sources to be distributed throughout a home, office, school, or virtually any other facility. DigitalMedia CAT distributes uncompressed digital video and audio signals up to 450 feet (137 m) using Crestron DM cable.
Multimedia Display Interface
A single HDMI digital AV output port is provided on the DM-RMC-100, supporting HD 1080p60 video and WUXGA computer signals with HDCP, Deep Color, 3D, and multi-channel HD lossless audio all through one connection. The HDMI output can also handle DVI signals using an appropriate adapter or interface cable.
A single DM cable connects the DM-RMC-100 to a DM switcher or transmitter. Multiple DM-RMC-100s may be installed to handle each display in a multiroom distribution system, all fed from a central DM-MD series switcher. Or, a single DM-RMC-100 can be fed straight from a DM CAT transmitter to provide a simple solution for extending a computer or AV signal to a single display.
Along with high-definition AV and control, DigitalMedia also integrates high-speed Ethernet networking for a total signal distribution solution. The DM-RMC-100 includes a 10/100 Ethernet port, providing a convenient LAN connection for a local network device.
The DM-RMC-100 also functions as a keyboard/mouse extender, allowing a USB HID-compliant keyboard and/or mouse to be connected at the display location, and used to control a computer or other component located at the central equipment rack or some other remote location.
Embedded Device Control
The primary objective of every Crestron system is to enable precisely the control desired for a seamless user experience. The DM-RMC-100 includes built-in RS-232, IR, and Ethernet control ports to allow programmable control of the display device connected to it. But, it can also provide an alternative to such conventional control methods by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI. Through its connection to the control system, the DM-RMC-100 provides a gateway for controlling the display device right through the HDMI connection, potentially eliminating the need for any dedicated control wires or IR emitters.
Two low-voltage relay ports are also included on the DM-RMC-100 for control of a projection screen or lift. In addition, a single digital input port is provided to accommodate a power sensor or contact closure for enhanced automation and monitoring.
Its low-profile design makes the DM-RMC-100 perfect for installation behind a flat panel display or above a ceiling mounted projector. It mounts to a standard 2-gang, 4" square, or UK electrical box using the mounting bracket provided, affording a clean installation that protrudes a mere 1-1/8" inches from the mounting surface.
Connections for the display are all positioned along the bottom of the unit for a clean, serviceable installation. The DM and LAN connections are provided on the rear panel within the electrical box. An array of indicators is provided on the front panel for easy setup and troubleshooting.
