New Crestron receiver, room controller now available30 August 2011
The latest addition to Crestron’s range of one-wire DigitalMedia 8G+ audio/video distribution technology is the DM-RMC-SCALER-C Receiver & Room Controller.
In addition to serving as a DM 8G+ receiver and room controller, DM-RMC-SCALER-C provides a single HDMI output to yield HD resolutions in any room on a DigitalMedia 8G+ network. DM-RMC-SCALER-C accepts any video source, from standard 480i to HD 1080p60 with Deep Color, plus all computer sources, and scales them for the ‘best possible’ HD viewing experience.
3D content can be fed simultaneously to separate 3D and 2D displays. Scaling 3D signals to 2D is said to be ideal when the user wants to route a 3D movie to his/her theater, but also wants to watch in the bedroom or another room in 2D.
For custom applications such as video walls, DM-RMC-SCALER-C provides zoom capability on its output to display just a portion of the source image. Using this feature, multiple units can be combined to configure an HD video wall of up to 16 individual displays, via the use of a separate DM-RMC-SCALER-C for each display.
“DM-RMC-SCALER-C seamlessly manages all video signals to any room display to give you a great picture every time; it’s that easy,” said Crestron director of marketing, Vincent Bruno. “No matter what video sources or displays you select, you’ll experience the optimal high-definition image throughout your home, school, hotel or commercial building.”
