        DMC-S

        DigitalMedia 8G™ Fiber Input Card for DM® Switchers

        Provides a single DM 8G® Fiber input for any DigitalMedia™ Switcher with modular input card slots.

        DigitalMedia Switcher Configuration ToolThe DMC-S is an input card designed for use with any card-based Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher. It provides one DM 8G® Fiber input, with complementary HDMI® pass-through and analog audio outputs. The DM 8G Fiber input enables the connection of a DM 8G Fiber transmitter, or the output of another DM® switcher, using a single strand of multimode fiber.[1]

        NOTE: Refer to model DMC-S-DSP for use with surround sound sources.

        DigitalMedia 8G™ Fiber

        Engineered for ultra high-bandwidth and ultimate scalability, DigitalMedia 8G Fiber (DM 8G Fiber) provides a true one-wire lossless transport for moving high-definition video, audio, Ethernet, and control signals over multimode fiber. DM 8G Fiber handles uncompressed Full HD 1080p video signals with support for HDCP, Deep Color, 3D, and high-bitrate 7.1 audio, as well as computer signals up to WUXGA. All signals are transported over one strand of multimode fiber, supporting distances up to 1000 feet (300 m) using CresFiber® 8G, or 500 feet (150 m) using other multimode fiber optic cable.[1]

        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-S 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.[2]

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

        Standalone DM 8G Fiber Receiver

        In addition to its use as an input card for DM switchers, the DMC-S may also be used with the DMCI DigitalMedia Card Interface[3] to provide a DM 8G Fiber 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 online DigitalMedia Switcher Configuration Tool.

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