Crestron DM 3.0 sets new digital standard

Four core digital standards embedded in DigitalMedia product line transforms AV distribution and AV industry yet again

AV-CrestronAt Integrated Systems Europe 2015 in Amsterdam, February 10–12, Crestron will establish the new DM 3.0 standard, and will offer live demonstrations of more DigitalMedia™ 4K products. DM is still the only end-to-end 4K certified distribution solution.

“A decade ago, Crestron laid the foundation for DigitalMedia, the AV distribution technology that would go on to transform the industry. Today DM 3.0, the new digital standard for every room, does it again,” says Fred Bargetzi, Chief Technology Officer at Crestron. “DM 3.0 is four core digital standards: uncompressed bit-for-bit 4K/60 distribution and scaling, streaming AV, enterprise-class IT solution, and end-to-end scalable solutions for every room type.”

Crestron will be debuting the following new DM 4K products at ISE 2015, each of which meet one or more requirement of the DM 3.0 standard:

World’s first and only 4K/60 Hz scaler

What makes the cutting-edge 4K DigitalMedia Receiver & Room Controller w/Scaler (DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C) unique is its exclusive scaler chip, developed at the Crestron Research Center. Other AV companies simply don’t have this capability. As a result, the technology can’t be found anywhere else. The scaler can convert any resolution and frame rate to any other resolution and frame rate, up to 4096×2160 at 60 Hz.
