Crestron takes control of the technology so clients can focus on their meetings.
4K Solutions for Residential Developments
Crestron will be highlighting a range of DigitalMedia 4K products at InfoComm MEA including input/output cards, receivers, extenders and transmitters. These products can be used to upgrade existing card-based DigitalMedia systems through the DM® 4K Upgrade Programme – with big discounts. Upgrading is simple and this is why DigitalMedia is giving installers a significant competitive advantage, to meet the ever growing demand from commercial end users. Every day in the DigitalMedia Lab, Crestron’s engineers rigorously test 4K sources and displays to ensure they work in a matrix-switched environment. Visitors to the booth can experience the technology that sets the standard for 4K testing and certification, while learning how DM switching and the right cabling solutions solve the challenges typically associated with 4K signal distribution.
Top 10 Must Haves in AV Distribution
The booth will also demonstrate to visitors ‘The ten essential requirements for any AV Distribution System’. The feature was a huge success at InfoComm 2014 in Las Vegas earlier this year and by popular demand it is back for InfoComm MEA. Providing a simple overview of AV distribution in the new 4K era, this feature highlights the Crestron products and solutions that are the essential building blocks for success in commercial installation projects.
