        DMC-VGA

        VGA/Video Input Card for DM® Switchers

        Provides a single VGA or analog video input for any DigitalMedia™ Switcher with modular plug-in input card slots. Includes advanced analog video processing for superior performance from all types of analog sources.

        DigitalMedia Switcher Configuration ToolThe DMC-VGA is an input card designed for use with any card-based Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher. It provides one VGA type input, with a complementary stereo audio input and HDMI® pass-through output. A USB HID port is also provided. The VGA input allows for the connection of an analog VGA, RGB, component, S-Video, or composite video source.[1] It handles computer resolutions up to WUXGA 1920x1200, as well as HD video up to 1080p60. Stereo audio is supported via a balanced line-level input.

        Digital AV Converter

        Using high-quality 36 bit sampling, the DMC-VGA converts analog computer and video signals to digital for distribution over the DigitalMedia network. Analog audio signals are converted to 24 bit digital.

        Advanced Video Processing

        Featuring advanced signal processing with anti-alias filtering and 3D comb filtering, the DMC-VGA attains optimal picture quality from any analog computer, SD video, or HD video source, and is the preferred input card for use with all types of analog signals. With built-in time base correction, even VCRs and other video tape players can be handled reliably.

        HDMI® Pass-Through

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

        USB Signal Extension

        Built-in USB HID signal routing allows a connected computer (or other USB HID-compliant host) to be controlled by a mouse and/or keyboard located at a presentation lectern, conference table, or some other remote location. Additional USB devices of virtually any type can be supported using Crestron USB over Ethernet Extenders (USB-EXT-DM) [2].

        Multi-format Analog AV to HDMI Converter

        In addition to its use as an input card for DM switchers, the DMC-VGA may also be used with the DMCI DigitalMedia Card Interface [3] to provide a handy problem-solving tool with many useful functions. It can be used to convert virtually any analog computer or AV signal to HDMI. It can also be used to detect input source format information, manage EDID, and extend a USB HID mouse/keyboard signal over Ethernet.

        Digital Upgrade for Legacy Systems

        Whether installed in a DM switcher or DMCI, the DMC-VGA card affords a digital upgrade for analog-based systems like Crestron MPS and QuickMedia®. A simple HD15 VGA cable and balanced stereo audio cable connected between the output of an MPS system and the input of the DMC-VGA allows every RGB, component, S-Video, composite video, and audio input on the MPS to be converted to HDMI and DigitalMedia.[1]

        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.
