        DM-RMC-100-1

        DigitalMedia™ CAT Receiver & Room Controller 100-1

        Discontinued

        This product has been discontinued. Please contact Crestron True Blue Support at 1-888-CRESTRON for a replacement solution or more information.

        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-100-1 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-100-1 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.[1]

        DigitalMedia™
        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[1].Multimedia Display Interface
        A single HDMI digital AV output port is provided on the DM-RMC-100-1, 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[2]. A single DM cable connects the DM-RMC-100-1 to a DM switcher or transmitter.[1] Multiple DM-RMC-100-1s 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-100-1 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.LAN Connectivity
        Along with high-definition AV and control, DigitalMedia also integrates high-speed Ethernet networking for a total signal distribution solution. The DM-RMC-100-1 includes a 10/100 Ethernet port, providing a convenient LAN connection for a local network device.Keyboard/Mouse Extender
        The DM-RMC-100-1 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-100-1 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-100-1 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-100-1 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.Low-Profile Installation
        The DM-RMC-100-1 mounts to a wall, ceiling, or other flat surface. At less than 1-1/2 inches (33 mm) deep, it fits easily behind a flat panel display or above a ceiling-mounted projector. Connections are positioned on the top and bottom of the unit. An array of indicators is provided on the front panel for easy setup and troubleshooting.Please refer to the DigitalMedia Resources Webpage at http://www.crestron.com/dmresources/ for additional design tools and reference documents.
