Crestron Asia Limited (“Crestron Asia”), the Asia headquarters of Crestron Electronics, Inc. (“Crestron”) being one of the world's leading manufacturers of advanced control and automation systems, now has a clean, simple, and low-cost solution for AV pros in need of an easy way to send 4K signals or connect 4K displays in a room, plus control other devices. The company is now shipping the industry’s first and only Wall Plate 4K DigitalMedia 8G+ Transmitter 100 (DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G) and Wall Plate 4K DigitalMedia 8G+ Receiver & Room Controller 100 (DM-RMC-4K-100-C-1G), featuring serial and IR ports for convenient device control.
Direct replacements for the DM-TX1-C-1G and DM-RX1-C-1G, and fully HDBaseT compliant, the DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G and DM-RMC-4K-100-C-1G provide a simple signal interface and control solution for a single HD or 4K display device as part of a complete DM system.
Available in black or white, these low-cost 4K transmitters and receivers drop right into standard one-gang electrical boxes. No special back box or wiring is required, just standard category cable. They can be powered using the included wall mount power pack, or via PoDM (Power over DigitalMedia). Mounted discreetly in the wall, with only a single HDMI® cable protruding, they complement today’s sleek, super-thin 4K displays – especially desirable in more sophisticated spaces.
Ideal for Conference Spaces
The DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G and DM-RMC-4K-100-C-1G are ideal for applications such as banquet halls, hotels, and convention centers with room divider systems. These spaces typically don’t have displays and TVs permanently mounted. Multiple transmitters and receivers can be mounted in the wall all around the room and in 4-inch deep floor boxes. Then you can just wheel in your 4K display and plug it in wherever and whenever it’s needed.
4K and more
A single cable connects either device to a DM switcher, transmitting or receiving video, audio, control, networking, and power signals all through one category cable. A single HDMI input (DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G) or output (DM-RMC-4K-100-C-1G) port supports video at resolutions up to 4K (4096×2160). Rooms in which an HDBaseT display is installed, the DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G can transmit the HDBaseT signal directly to the display without any converters or receivers required.
Embedded Device Control
Every Crestron system is designed to deliver precision control and a seamless user experience. The DM-TX-4K-100-C-1G and DM-RMC-4K-100-C-1G include built-in serial and IR control ports to allow programmable control of the connected display or other devices, such as cameras and Blu-ray™ players. They also support CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) as an alternative to conventional control methods.
Connected to a Crestron control system, the DM-RMC-4K-100-C-1G can control the room display, eliminating the need for any dedicated control wires or IR emitters.
