Crestron shows DigitalMedia system26 January 2010
Crestron is highlighting its DigitalMedia system as part of an extensive showcase at ISE 2010.
With fully active products on the stand, Crestron is showing how DigitalMedia operates in both commercial and residential environments.
Delegates can see first-hand how the DigitalMedia HDMI switchers cope with displaying different sourced material and manage all the data transmitted on the signals, including HDCP and EDID.
In addition to HDMI, DigitalMedia also accepts, manages and distributes all analogue video and audio – including stereo, SPDIF, and 7.1 surround sound – Ethernet, USB, KVM, power, and control over Cat5e or fibre.
Crestron is also showing the new Prodigy range of home control products. Prodigy is billed as being a simple to install, easy to use and ‘exceptionally affordable’ solution that does not require any special wiring, programming or expensive custom installation.
Prodigy home automation solutions include home theatre, audio distribution, lighting and climate control.
V-Panels – the new line of ultra-slim, low-profile, high-definition touchpanels – is also being showcased. Only two inches deep, Crestron V-Panels provide VESA mount installation in addition to desktop and flush wall-mount.
Offered in 12in (VESA, tilt, wall) and 15in (VESA, tilt, wall) versions, a V-Panel can function as both a touchpanel control interface and flat panel HD display. A choice of either the Crestron DGE-1 or DGE-2 external graphics engine enable V-Panels to display both HD (HDMI/HDCP) and analogue video (VGA, component, and streaming media from online videos, digital media servers and web cameras).
V-Panels can also integrate VoIP communications, embedded PC applications, USB-HID control, onscreen annotation and whole house control.
Among many other items, Crestron is also drawing attention to touchpanel products such as the TPMC-4SM, TPS-6X and TPMC-3X.
