        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 remote input connection for HDMI® and RGB sources as part of a complete DigitalMedia™ System. Connects to the DM® CAT input of a DM Switcher or Receiver via DM Cable. Includes a USB HID device port, allowing a mouse/keyboard to be connected for controlling a computer or other host device at a different location. Compact design fits into a Wiremold® 6000 Series Raceway.

        The DM-TX-200 is a DM® CAT transmitter and switcher that provides a convenient interface for computers and other high-definition AV sources as part of a complete Crestron® DigitalMedia™ system. The DM-TX-200 is ideal for use at a lectern, conference table, wall plate, or any remote location in a boardroom, classroom, auditorium, or residence. It connects to the head end or display location using a single Crestron DM cable, providing HDMI®, VGA, and analog audio inputs, plus a USB HID host port.

        Note: The DM-TX-200 is specially designed to fit inside a divided Wiremold® 6000 Series Raceway.

        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 Computer/AV Interface
        The DM-TX-200 provides simple switching between two inputs. The inputs can be configured to switch automatically or be controlled through a Crestron control system. Inputs include:

        • HDMI — Supports HD 1080p60 video and WUXGA computer signals with HDCP and multi-channel lossless audio. Also handles DVI and DisplayPort Multimode signals using an appropriate adapter or interface cable[2].
        • RGB — This VGA type input handles analog RGB signals up to WUXGA 1920x1200 pixels, as well as analog video up to 1080p60[3]. A 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo audio input is included to accommodate analog audio signals from an unbalanced line-level source or headphone output.

        Note: Audio breakaway capability enables the analog audio input to be used with either video input.A single DM CAT output is provided for connection to a DM switcher or receiver.[1] Used with a single DM CAT Receiver/Room Controller and optional Crestron Control System, the DM-TX-200 affords a simple solution for extending a multimedia computer or AV signal to a single display up to 450 feet (137 m) away[1]. As part of a larger system using a DM-MD series switcher, multiple DM-TX-200s may be installed to enable the distribution of several sources at different locations to feed multiple displays throughout any room or larger facility.Keyboard/Mouse Extender
        The DM-TX-200 functions as a keyboard/mouse extender, allowing a USB HID-compliant keyboard and/or mouse to be connected to the DM-TX-200 and used to control a computer or other component located at the central equipment rack or some other location.EDID Format Management
        The DM-TX-200 allows for management of the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) information that passes between the display devices and input sources in the system. Using Crestron Toolbox™ software, the format and resolution capabilities of each device can be assessed and managed through the DM-TX-200, ensuring reliable operation by instructing sources to output only the resolutions and formats that can be handled by the displays and system wiring. CEC Embedded Device Control
        The primary objective of every Crestron system is to enable precisely the control desired for a seamless user experience. DigitalMedia provides an alternative to conventional IR and RS-232 device control by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI. Through its connection to the control system, the DM-TX-200 provides a gateway for controlling the connected source device right through the HDMI connection, potentially eliminating the need for any dedicated control wires or IR emitters. Through proper CEC signal management, DigitalMedia allows you to take control of each device in the system as you like.Compact and Versatile
        The DM-TX-200 is designed to be placed on a shelf or mounted to flat surface. It is compact enough to fit discreetly inside a presentation lectern or beneath a table, and can even be concealed inside a divided Wiremold 6000 Series Raceway. An array of indicators on the front of the DM-TX-200 provides for easy setup and troubleshooting. Advanced configuration is enabled through Crestron Toolbox software.A Digital Upgrade for Legacy Systems
        The DM-TX-200 also affords a perfect signal converter for integrating DigitalMedia with analog-based systems like Crestron MPS, QuickMedia®, and the CEN-RGBHV Series. A simple HD15 VGA cable connected between the output of an MPS system and the input of the DM-TX-200 allows every RGB, component, S-Video, and composite video input on the MPS to be converted to DigitalMedia[3]. Analog audio is converted similarly through a simple unbalanced stereo audio cable. Please refer to the DigitalMedia Resources Webpage at http://www.crestron.com/dmresources/ for additional design tools and reference documents.
