The DMC-4K-CO-HD-HDCP2 is an output card designed for use with any card-based Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher. It provides two independent DM 8G+® outputs, plus one HDMI® output. The HDMI output carries the same signal as the first DM 8G+ output. Both DM 8G+ outputs are compatible with HDBaseT®. Using a single CAT type twisted pair cable, each DM 8G+ output enables connection to a DM 8G+ receiver, the input of another DM® switcher, or an HDBaseT certified display device or receiver.
4K Ultra HD
All outputs on the DMC-4K-CO-HD-HDCP2 are capable of handling video resolutions up to 4K and Ultra HD. Support for 4K video also ensures support for the latest generation of computers and monitors with native resolutions beyond 1080p and WUXGA.
Engineered for ultra high-bandwidth and ultimate scalability, DigitalMedia 8G+ (DM 8G+) provides a true one-wire lossless transport for moving high-definition video, audio, power, Ethernet, and control signals over twisted pair copper wire. DM 8G+ transports uncompressed Full HD 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals over distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using Crestron DM Ultra Cable, Crestron DM 8G® Cable, or third-party CAT5e. Higher resolution signals up to UHD and 4K are supported over 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. Either DM 8G+ output can be connected directly to an HDBaseT compliant device without requiring a DM receiver.
Bonus HDMI® Output
A single HDMI output is included on the DMC-4K-CO-HD-HDCP2, which functions in parallel with the first DM 8G+ output. Both outputs may be used simultaneously to split a single switched signal to feed two separate devices.
CEC Embedded Device Control
DigitalMedia offers an alternative to conventional RS-232 and IR display control by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI. Through its connection to a control system (via the DM switcher), the DMC-4K-CO-HD-HDCP2 provides a gateway for controlling display devices right through their HDMI or HDBaseT connections, potentially eliminating the need for any dedicated control wires or IR emitters.
Power over DM®
Power over DM (PoDM) technology affords a true one-wire solution by supplying power to each connected device over the same wire that carries video, audio, and data signals. To enable PoDM power sourcing through either DM 8G+ output port (DM OUT), simply connect a compatible PoDM or PoE power source to its companion PoE/PoDM input port (POE IN). Compatible power sources include Crestron models DM-PSU-8, DM-PSU-16, DM-PSU-ULTRA-MIDSPAN, and CEN-SWPOE-16, or any IEEE 802.3af or 802.3at compliant PoE PSE (Power Sourcing Equipment).
Support for PoDM+ is enabled using a DM-PSU-ULTRA-MIDSPAN, CEN-SWPOE-16, or third-party 802.3at Type 2 PSE. PoDM++ power sourcing is enabled using a DM-PSU-ULTRA-MIDSPAN. PoDM may also be used to power HDBaseT PoE powered devices.
To configure a DM switcher complete with input and output cards, cables, and other peripherals, please use the online DigitalMedia Switcher Configuration Tool.
Are you upgrading an existing DM switcher that has older “multi-gang” DMCO-series output cards? Use the online Output Card Additions and Upgrades Tool to update your existing output cards and switcher to the new “single-gang” output card format.
