        DMC-4K-C-HDCP2.


        Provides a single DM 8G+® or HDBaseT® input for any DigitalMedia™ Switcher with modular input card slots. Handles 4K and Ultra HD video resolutions.


        NOTE: The latest version of the DMC-4K-C is model DMC-4K-C-HDCP2, which is an updated version of the original DMC-4K-C that adds support for HDCP 2.2. The original DMC-4K-C supports HDCP 1.1.

        The DMC-4K-C is an input card designed for use with any card-based Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher. It provides one DM 8G+® input, with complementary HDMI® pass-through and analog audio outputs. The DM 8G+ input enables the connection of a DM 8G+ transmitter, the output of another DM® switcher, or an HDBaseT® certified source, using a single CAT type twisted pair cable.[1] Power over DM (PoDM) is supplied through the same connection, providing a centralized power source for PoDM compatible transmitters.[2]

        NOTE: Refer to model DMC-4K-C-DSP for use with surround sound sources.

        4K Ultra HD
        The DMC-4K-C 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.

        DigitalMedia 8G+®
        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+ handles uncompressed Full HD 1080p, Ultra HD, 2K, and 4K video signals with support for HDCP 1.1, Deep Color, 3D, and high-bitrate 7.1 audio. All signals are transported over a single CAT type cable, supporting 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals at distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using Crestron DM Ultra or 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.[1]

        HDBaseT® Certified
        Crestron DigitalMedia 8G+ technology is designed using HDBaseT Alliance specifications, ensuring interoperability with other HDBaseT certified products. An HDBaseT compliant device can be connected directly to the DM 8G+ input on the DMC-4K-C without requiring a DM transmitter.

        HDMI® Pass-Through
        Every DM switcher input card includes an HDMI output port, which can be used to pass the input signal through to a local audio processor or video monitor, or to feed a second DM switcher for output expansion purposes.

        Audio Extracting
        The DMC-4K-C also includes an unbalanced analog audio output, allowing stereo audio signals to be extracted from the digital input and fed to a multiroom audio distribution system. The output volume is adjustable via a control system using a keypad, touch screen, handheld remote, or mobile device.[3]

        NOTE: For applications requiring the simultaneous distribution of multichannel surround sound and 2-channel stereo audio signals, use model DMC-4K-C-DSP.

        Power over DM®
        Power over DM (PoDM) and Power over HDBaseT (PoH) can be supplied through the DMC-4K-C via its DM 8G+ input port to power a compatible DM 8G+ transmitter or HDBaseT device. To enable PoDM or PoH, simply connect a PoDM Power Supply (model DM-PSU-8 or DM-PSU-16 [4]) to the POE IN port on the input card. As an alternative to a PoDM Power Supply, a Crestron PoE switch, PoE injector, or other 802.3af or 802.3at compliant PoE PSE may be used.[2]

        Standalone DM 8G+ Receiver
        In addition to its use as an input card for DM switchers, the DMC-4K-C may also be used with the DMCI DigitalMedia Card Interface [4] to provide a DM 8G+ receiver solution that's perfect for installation in an equipment rack or AV cart, or as a portable display interface.

        To configure a DM switcher complete with input and output cards, cables, and other peripherals, please use the DigitalMedia™ Switcher Configuration Tool.

        Please refer to the DigitalMedia Resources Webpage at http://www.crestron.com/dmresources/ for additional design tools and reference documents.

        1. The maximum cable length for DigitalMedia 8G+ (DM 8G+) or HDBaseT is dependent upon the type of cable and resolution of the video signal. Refer to the “Maximum Cable Lengths” table for a detailed overview. Crestron legacy cable models DM-CBL DigitalMedia Cable and DM-CBL-D DigitalMedia D Cable support the same resolutions and cable lengths as CAT5e. Shielded cable and connectors are recommended to safeguard against unpredictable environmental electrical noise which may impact performance at resolutions above 1080p. Refer to the Crestron DigitalMedia Design Guide, Doc. #4546 for complete system design guidelines. DM 8G+ is compatible with HDBaseT Alliance specifications for connecting to HDBaseT compliant equipment. All wire and cables are sold separately.
        2. Supplying Power over DM (PoDM) or Power over HDBaseT (PoH) via the DM IN port requires connection of the DMC-4K-C’s POE IN port to a PoDM Power Supply (DM-PSU-8 or DM-PSU-16, sold separately) or an 802.3af or 802.3at compliant PoE PSE. Supplying PoDM+ is supported using an 802.3at Type 2 Class 4 compliant PoE+ PSE, such as the Crestron CEN-SWPOE-16 (sold separately). Refer to the connected DM 8G+ or HDBaseT device for its PoDM or PoH capabilities and requirements. Any wiring that is connected to a PoDM, PoH, or PoE PSE port is for intra-building use only and should not be connected to a line that runs outside of the building in which the PSE is located.
        3. The analog stereo audio output is only active when the input source is outputting a 2-channel stereo signal. For applications using a multichannel surround sound source, use model DMC-4K-C-DSP which provides simultaneous surround sound and stereo downmix output signals.
        4. Item(s) sold separately.
        5. DVI is supported via the HDMI output using a suitable adapter or interface cable. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables are available separately.
