New Digital Media 8G(TM) Fiber Receiver Adds More Audio And Control Options For Maximum Flexibility

DM-RMC-150-S DigitalMedia receiver and room controller accepts all signals over a single fiber strand and outputs HDMI and analog stereo; provides multiple control options plus USB port

Rockleigh, NJ, - Crestron today released the DM-RMC-150-S DigitalMedia 8G(TM) Fiber Receiver & Room Controller. The room controller receives all analog and uncompressed HD audio/video signals, control, data and Ethernet from a single multimode fiber strand and outputs standard HDMI to the display device. In addition to the RS232, IR and Ethernet ports, DM-RMC-150-S adds relays, closure sensing and USB ports for additional control options for maximum design and programming flexibility. The slim profile DM-RMC-150-S installs neatly behind a flat panel display or above a ceiling mounted projector.

"Fiber is the infrastructure of the future and the best way to transmit AV and control long distances," said Crestron Director of Marketing, Vincent Bruno. "CresFiber can carry all signals, including HDMI, up to 1,000 feet. The DM-RMC-150-S takes the fiber in and outputs standard HDMI to the display."

In addition, this latest DM fiber receiver also provides a separate analog stereo audio output to connect to a line input on a display, an AV receiver or an audio amplifier such as the Crestron MP-AMP30 .

"HDMI makes cabling easier because all audio and video is carried over one wire", explains Bruno. "But how do you get the audio out of the HDMI when you want to connect directly to powered speakers or an external amp or receiver? With the DM-RMC-150-S controller, we've made it simple."

The DM-RMC-150-S also functions as a keyboard/mouse extender, allowing a USB HID-compliant keyboard and/or mouse to be connected at the display location. Controlling a computer located at the central equipment rack or in another distant location is no longer an issue, and provides added convenience for teachers, speakers and presenters.

The only true one-wire high-output AV network, DigitalMedia 8G distributes all analog and pure high-definition digital content - including 1080p with Deep Color, 3D high-definition video, 1920x1200 computer signals, plus control, data, and Ethernet - long distances over a single DM 8G(TM) cable or CresFiber® 8G, without any need for compression or repeaters.
