A modular output card for DM-MD8X8, DM-MD16X16, or DM-MD32X32 switchers. Provides two independent 4K DM 8G+ outputs, plus one HDMI output in parallel with the first DM 8G+ output. Supports 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR video signals.
The DMC-4KZ-CO-HD is an output card designed for use with any card-based Crestron DigitalMedia Switcher. It provides two independent DM 8G+ outputs, plus one HDMI output. The HDMI output carries the same signal as the first DM 8G+ output. Both DM 8G+ outputs are compatible with HDBaseT. Using a single CAT type twisted pair cable, each DM 8G+ output enables connection to a DM 8G+ receiver, the input of another DM switcher, or an HDBaseT certified display device or receiver.
4K60 4:4:4 and HDR Support
Crestron DigitalMedia (DM) was the world's first AV signal distribution solution to deliver end-to-end 4K signal management for "large" scale commercial and residential applications. DM "4KZ" cards and endpoints enable new and existing DM systems to handle full 4K60 4:4:4 video signals, as well as HDR video signals (HDR10), without having to replace any wiring or switchers. Any Crestron DM system that supports 4K can be upgraded to handle 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR by simply installing DM 4KZ based cards, transmitters, and receivers. The DMC-4KZ-CO-HD is designed to replace an existing DMC-4K-CO-HD or DMC-4K-CO-HD-HDCP2 output card without requiring any extra configuration or programming.
DM 4KZ technology employs VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) to enhance the capabilities of DigitalMedia to handle the extreme bandwidth requirement of resolutions beyond 4K30 4:4:4 and 4K60 4:2:0. DSC is a lightweight, line-based 2:1 compression standard that delivers visually lossless performance for 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR signals. DSC is applied only to 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR input signals. All other signals are transported uncompressed.
Engineered for ultra high-bandwidth and ultimate scalability, DigitalMedia 8G+ (DM 8G+) provides a true one-wire lossless transport for moving High-Definition video, audio, power, Ethernet, and control signals over twisted pair copper wire. DM 8G+ transports uncompressed Full HD 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals over distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using Crestron DM ultra cable.
