        Low Price Meets High Performance in Three All New  Crestron 4K/60 HDMI® Switchers

        HD-MD4x1-4K-E, HD-MD4x2-4K-E, and HD-MD6x2-4K-E provide ideal solutions for meeting rooms, classrooms, or any AV presentation application; support Full HD 1080p, Ultra HD, 2K, and 4K video

        Rockleigh, NJ, July 15, 2015 – Crestron announced today it is now shipping three all new high performance 4K/60 HDMI® switchers designed for use in meeting rooms and classrooms, or for any AV presentation application. Well priced for budget sensitive projects, the HD-MD4x1-4K-E, HD-MD4x2-4K-E, and HD-MD6x2-4K-E each support the full gamut of today’s high-resolution signals, up to 4K/60, and provide advanced DigitalMedia™ EDID management for optimal display, native Crestron control via Ethernet, and a built-in Web server for easy configuration from any web browser.

        Even if you don’t have 4K, you need 4K

        Because today’s laptops have native resolutions higher than 2K, 4K HDMI capability is essential to display the full image from the laptop on the room display. These new 4K HDMI switchers are the ideal solution for small room applications, delivering zero latency switching and network management.

        A switcher for every application

        Depending on the number of sources and displays, there’s an ideal switcher for the room. The 4X1 4K HDMI source switcher (HD-MD4X1-4K-E) includes four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. There are two new matrix switchers from which to choose for dual display applications. The 4X2 4K HDMI matrix switcher (HD-MD4X2-4K-E) provides four HDMI inputs and two fully independent HDMI outputs, and the 6X2 4K HDMI Switcher (HD-MD6X2-4K-E) features six HDMI inputs and two fully independent HDMI outputs. All three models easily handle the complete array of the latest generation of video signals – Full HD 1080p, Ultra HD, 2K, and 4K – and provide support for HDCP, 3D, Deep Color, and high-bitrate 7.1 audio.

        Simple to deploy and operate

        All three switchers feature thumbpad control and OLED display for simple control and source selection, all without any programming. Setup is easily done using the high visibility front panel OLED display or a Web browser. No programming, tools, or PC is required, ensuring a streamlined, low cost installation.

        They HD-MD4x1-4K-E and HD-MD4x2-4K-E can be conveniently mounted to a wall or other surface anywhere in the room. At just over one inch deep, they can fit easily behind a flat panel display or under a table, for clean, discreet installation. They can also be placed on a rack shelf, or attached to a single rack rail. The HD-MD6X2-4K-E is housed in a compact 1 RU rack mount chassis.

        All three switchers are fully operable using onboard controls, a Web browser, or Crestron control system.

        EDID format management

        To ensure that every source is displayed at its optimal resolution and format, all three switchers provide comprehensive management of the EDID information that passes between the display and source devices.
