A web browser interface is also provided.3

        4K Ultra HD
        The DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS is designed to meet the extreme bandwidth requirements for handling 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.4

        DigitalMedia 8G+® Technology
        The DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS provides full support for Crestron DigitalMedia 8G+ devices as well as first-generation DM CAT 8,10 and DM Fiber 9,10 products, letting you take advantage of the latest Crestron DigitalMedia 8G+ technology.

        A DigitalMedia 8G+ system handles high resolution video signals and can simultaneously distribute stereo and multichannel surround sound signals that support high bitrate 7.1 audio formats as well as uncompressed linear PCM. Signals are transported over one CAT type twisted pair cable or one strand of multimode or single-mode fiber.

        HDBaseT® Certified
        Using DigitalMedia 8G+® technology, the DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS can be connected directly to an HDBaseT compliant device without requiring a DM transmitter or receiver.

        H.264 Streaming
        The DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS streaming input capability enables IP cameras and other H.264 encoded sources to be distributed via DigitalMedia alongside HDMI and other non‑streaming sources. It also allows DM switchers to be bridged together for simplified routing of HD content between buildings and global offices. Large‑scale streaming to computers and mobile devices can be facilitated through integration with a streaming media system such as a Wowza® or Kaltura® media system.

        Built‑In CONTENT LAN Port
        Any streaming input or output may be configured to stream via the CONTENT LAN or LAN port of the DM switcher or via a dedicated CONTENT LAN port of a DMC Series input or output card. Control and content can be combined on a single network or can be isolated onto separate networks.

        Modular Architecture
        The DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS features a modular architecture with 8 input card slots and 4 dual output card slots. A wide selection of input cards is offered to support a complete range of digital and analog AV signal types as specified in the following specifications table.

        Output Expansion
        An HDMI pass‑through output is provided on every input card to allow the inputs of up to five DM switchers to be daisy‑chained, enabling the configuration of very large distribution systems with many outputs. Using five DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS switchers, for example, it is possible to support up to 40 separate outputs.

        QuickSwitch HD™ Technology
        Digital media signals are typically encrypted to protect against unauthorized viewing. After authenticating displays or signal processors, a source device must issue a key before delivering an output signal. Crestron QuickSwitch HD technology manages these keys to ensure fast, reliable switching and immunity to blackouts.

        NOTE: QuickSwitch HD technology requires the use of a scaling HDMI output, which is available on DigitalMedia™ devices such as the DM‑RMC‑4KZ‑SCALER‑C and DMC‑4KZ‑HDO.

        Auto‑Locking® Technology
        Crestron Auto‑Locking technology enables super fast signal switching by instantaneously configuring every device in the signal path as soon as the signal hits the first device. Auto‑Locking technology virtually eliminates any noticeable gap while switching.

        EDID Format Management
        DigitalMedia technology manages the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) that devices use to communicate to eliminate conflicts that may arise when one source is routed to multiple displays or audio components. Via Crestron Toolbox software, the format and resolution capabilities of each device can be assessed, allowing the installer to properly configure EDID.

        A Scaler for Every Display
        Installing select output cards into the DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS or connecting a DM receiver with built‑in HD and 4k scalers to the DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS allows for high‑performance scaling. Independent scalers placed at every display device allow for the routing of multiple sources to many different display devices.13 The Distributed Scaler Approach ensures an optimal image on every screen and allows a high‑res computer source to be viewed on any display in the building.

        Versatile Audio Routing
        HDMI is the key to handling 7.1 surround sound formats such as Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Atmos®, and DTS HD Master Audio™. To share these audio sources with multiple audio zones, the DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS allows for the simultaneous distribution of multichannel surround sound and two‑channel stereo signals from the same HDMI source.

        The digital stereo signal is converted to analog to enable sharing via a Sonnex® Multiroom Audio System or any other audio distribution system. The DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS also allows surround sound processors and amplifiers to be located centrally instead of at the display location via optional local HDMI outputs.

        Built‑in Ethernet Switch
        The DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS includes an integrated Ethernet switch with a gigabit LAN port. In addition to transporting digital video and audio, a DigitalMedia system can also extend 100 Ethernet out to each display and source device via select DM receivers and transmitters, providing high‑speed connectivity for any room device that requires a LAN connection. Ethernet is also utilized internally by the Crestron control bus to manage the DM devices in the system and provide display control in each room.

        Private Network Mode
        To streamline its implementation on a corporate or university LAN, the DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS employs Private Network Mode to provide a single‑point connection for the complete system. Using Private Network Mode, the DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS requires just one IP address for the complete DM network.

        USB Signal Routing
        The DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS supports USB HID (Human Interface Device) signal routing so that a USB HID compliant keyboard and/or mouse can provide local control for devices in other locations.16 USB HID connectivity is provided through select DM receivers, transmitters, and input cards. Connect a USB over Ethernet Extender host module (USB‑EXT‑DM‑LOCAL12) to a host that you would like to communicate with and install a device module (USB‑EXT‑DM‑REMOTE12) at every display location to connect keyboards, gaming controllers, mice, or other devices.

        CEC Embedded Device Control
        Through its connection to the control system, the DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS provides a gateway for controlling many devices right through their HDMI or HDBaseT connections, potentially eliminating the need for any dedicated control wires or IR emitters.13

        Web Browser Control
        The DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS also includes a built-in web server that allows functions such as Ethernet configuration, routing, and firmware upgrades to be performed.3

        Redundant Power Supplies
        The DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS delivers enhanced reliability through two long‑life, redundant power supplies. In the unlikely event of a fault with one of the power supplies (indicated by a flashing red LED), the DM‑MD8X8‑CPU3‑RPS will continue to operate on only one power supply. Individual green LEDs show that the power supplies are functioning without fault. The power supplies can also be remotely monitored via Crestron Fusion® software or any control system touch screen.

        1. All output types are configured in pairs except for streaming. To configure a complete DM switcher with output and input cards, use the online DigitalMedia Switcher Configuration Tool. Current DM switchers use DMC‑series “single‑gang” output cards. For older DM switchers with DMCO-series “multi‑gang” output cards, use the online Output Card Additions and Upgrades Tool to update your existing output cards and switcher to the new single‑gang output card format.
        2.  Control via the DM network requires a Crestron control system, sold separately.
        3. Configuration of input cards, output cards, and endpoints is not supported.
        4. 4K60 4:4:4, HDR, Ultra HD, and HDCP 2.2 are currently supported over HDMI, DM 8G+, and HDBaseT using select input and output cards. Refer to the specifications for each input/output card and each connected device for its full capabilities.
        5. The maximum cable length for DigitalMedia 8G+ or HDBaseT is dependent upon the type of cable, the choice of input/output card, and the resolution of the video signal. Refer to the “Maximum DM 8G 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. DM 8G+ is compatible with HDBaseT Alliance specifications for connecting to HDBaseT compliant equipment.
        6. The maximum cable length for DigitalMedia 8G™ Fiber is 1000 ft (300 m) using CRESFIBER8G multimode fiber optic cable, or 500 ft (150 m) using CRESFIBER (legacy) or third-party OM3 multimode fiber optic cable.
        7. The maximum cable length for DigitalMedia 8G Single-Mode Fiber is 7.5 miles (12 km) using CRESFIBER8G‑SM or third-party G.652.D (or better) single-mode fiber optic cable.
        8. The maximum cable length for DigitalMedia CAT is 450 ft (137 m) using DM‑CBL DigitalMedia Cable. Actual cable length depends upon multiple factors. Up to two DM Repeaters (Model DM‑DR) may be required.
        9. The maximum cable length for DigitalMedia Fiber is 1000 ft (300 m) using CRESFIBER (legacy), CRESFIBER8G, or third-party OM2/OM3 duplex multimode fiber optic cable.
        10. Refer to the Crestron DigitalMedia Design Guide, Doc. #4546, for complete system design guidelines. All wire and cables are sold separately.
        11. Streaming output supports 2‑channel stereo audio only. Multichannel surround sound audio sources cannot be streamed unless downmixed to stereo. Stereo downmix capability requires a “DSP” type DM switcher input card, sold separately.
        12. Any HDMI input can support a DVI or Dual‑Mode DisplayPort signal using a suitable adapter or interface cable.
        13. Item(s) sold separately.
        14. Control of third‑party HDBaseT devices using CEC is only supported via 4K DM 8G+ input and output cards.
        15. DVI output is supported via an HDMI output port using a suitable adapter or interface cable. CBL‑HD‑DVI interface cables are available separately.
        16. Manages the routing of USB HID signals between peripheral DM devices and input cards that are equipped with USB HID ports. Also programmable to manage the routing of USB signals between Crestron USB over Ethernet Extender modules (USB‑EXT‑DM, sold separately). Refer to the USB‑EXT‑DM spec sheet for more information.
