The DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G provides a simple, cost-effective interface solution for a single HDMI, DVI, or Dual-Mode DisplayPort source as part of a complete Crestron® DigitalMedia™ system. It functions as a DM 8G+® transmitter and control interface, providing a single HDMI® input along with RS-232 and IR control ports. In addition to DM 8G+, it is also compatible with HDBaseT®, allowing it to be connected directly to an HDBaseT certified receiver or display device.
Its 1-gang mountable design allows the DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G to be flush mounted in a wall or presentation lectern. It can also be mounted beneath a table or attached to a suitable flat surface using the mounting bracket provided. It connects to the head end or display location using a single CAT type twisted pair cable. Standard gang-box mounting (3-1/2" deep) allows for installation adjacent to an Ethernet jack (Crestron MP-WP183 or equivalent) for a total connectivity solution.
4K Ultra HD
Crestron DigitalMedia continues to advance the standard for digital AV signal distribution, delivering the world’s first end-to-end 4K system solution. The DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G features the latest DM 8G+ technology, providing support for the transport of 4K and Ultra HD video signals. Support for 4K video also ensures support for the latest generation of computers and monitors with native resolutions beyond 1080p and WUXGA.
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. The latest generation of DM is called DigitalMedia 8G™ (DM 8G®). Engineered for ultra high-bandwidth and ultimate scalability, DM 8G provides a true one-wire lossless transport for moving high-definition video, audio, and control signals over a choice of twisted-pair or fiber optic cable.
DM 8G over twisted-pair copper wire is called DigitalMedia 8G+ (DM 8G+). DM 8G+ handles uncompressed Full HD 1080p, Ultra HD, 2K, and 4K video signals with support for 3D, Deep Color, and HDCP 2.2. Audio capabilities include support for high-bitrate 7.1 audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Atmos®, and DTS-HD®, as well as uncompressed linear PCM. All signals are transported over a single CAT type wire, supporting 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals at distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using Crestron DM Ultra Cable, Crestron DM 8G Cable, or third-party CAT5e. Higher resolutions up to UHD and 4K are supported at distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using DM Ultra Cable, 230 feet (70 m) using DM 8G Cable, or 165 feet (50 m) using CAT5e.
Crestron DigitalMedia 8G+ technology is designed using HDBaseT Alliance specifications, ensuring interoperability with other HDBaseT certified products. Via its DM 8G+ output, the DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G can be connected directly to an HDBaseT compliant device without requiring a DM receiver.
Multimedia Computer/AV Interface
A single HDMI digital AV input port is provided on the DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G for connection of a laptop computer, mobile device, or other AV source. The HDMI input can also handle DVI and Dual-Mode DisplayPort signals using an appropriate adapter or interface cable.
A single CAT type cable connects the DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G to a DM switcher or receiver, or to an HDBaseT device, transporting video, audio, control, and power signals all through one simple RJ45 connection.[2,5,6] Used with a single DM 8G+ Receiver/Room Controller, the DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G affords a simple solution for extending a computer or AV signal to a single display. As part of a larger system using a DM-MD series switcher, multiple DM-TX-4K-100-C-1Gs may be installed to enable the distribution of several sources at different locations to feed multiple displays throughout any room or larger facility.
Embedded Device Control
The DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G includes built-in RS-232 and IR control ports to allow for programmable control of the connected source device (via a control system). Additional control capability is afforded by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI. Through its connection to the control system, the DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G provides a gateway for controlling the source right through its HDMI connection, potentially eliminating the need for a dedicated serial cable or IR emitter.
Versatile Mounting Options
The DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G is designed to be installed using a 3-1/2" deep 1-gang electrical box or plaster ring (not included). It can also be mounted beneath a table or attached to a suitable flat surface using the mounting bracket provided, or it can be fastened to a single rack rail in an equipment cabinet. The DM cable connects to the rear of the transmitter via a shielded RJ45 DM port. The unit can be powered using the wall mount power pack (included), or PoDM (Power over DigitalMedia) for a true one-wire solution.[5,6] An array of indicators is provided for easy setup and troubleshooting.
