DM 3.0: the digital standard for every room
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 digital standard for every room, does it again. DM 3.0 is not a product. It’s a set of core, standard-setting technologies embedded in the DM product line. Only DM products meet all core requirements: uncompressed bit-for-bit 4K/60 distribution and scaling; streaming AV; an enterprise-class solution; and end-to-end scalable solutions for every room type.
Only DM delivers a certified, end-to-end 4K/60 scaling and distribution solution right now. In fact, DM was built to handle 4K since our very first 8X8 switcher. Additionally, only DM Ultra Cable can reliably transmit 4K signals up to 100 meters, meeting the HDMI specification.
Streaming removes any distance limitations and enables you to route signals wherever new wires can’t be run, or when doing so is cost prohibitive. Only DM gives you the ability to deliver high-performance H.264 streaming video over your existing IP infrastructure and zero-latency, uncompressed video distribution on the same platform. Other manufacturers’ streaming-only solutions can’t transmit uncompressed 2K or 4K video. They have to compress it. As a result, image quality suffers.
To combat piracy, Hollywood Studios successfully lobbied for new Digital Rights Management (DRM) to protect their content. As a result, HDCP 2.2 was adopted. However, currently installed systems won’t transmit HDCP 2.2 protected content. The good news is upgrading is easy with DM. We anticipated potential disruptions to your AV systems, and so once again DM is ahead of the curve. DM includes everything you need to deliver fully HDCP 2.2 compliant end-to-end 4K distribution solutions right now.
