Crestron DM-RMC-100-S

The DM-RMC-100-S provides a simple one-box interface solution for a single display device as part of a complete Crestron® DigitalMedia™ system. It functions as a DM 8G® Fiber receiver and control interface, providing a single HDMI® output along with Ethernet, RS-232, and IR control ports. Its compact, low-profile design allows the DM-RMC-100-S to be installed discreetly behind a flat panel display or above a ceiling mounted projector. It connects to the head end or source location using a single multimode fiber strand.[1]

DigitalMedia 8G™ Fiber
As the leader in HDMI and control system technologies, Crestron developed DigitalMedia (DM®) to deliver the first complete HD AV distribution system to take HDMI to a higher level. DigitalMedia allows virtually any mix of HDMI and other AV sources to be distributed throughout a home, office, school, or virtually any other facility.

DigitalMedia 8G is the latest generation of DM, providing a true one-wire transport for moving high-definition video, audio, and Ethernet over fiber optic cable without any compression or repeaters. Engineered for ultra high-bandwidth and ultimate scalability, DM 8G handles uncompressed video beyond high-definition with support for HDCP, Deep Color, and 3D. Audio capabilities include support for high-bitrate 7.1 audio formats including Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ as well as uncompressed linear PCM. All signals are transported over one strand of multimode fiber, supporting up to 1000 ft (300 m) using CresFiber® 8G Fiber Optic Cable.[1]

Multimedia Display Interface
A single HDMI digital AV output port is provided on the DM-RMC-100-S, supporting HD 1080p60 video and WUXGA computer signals with HDCP, Deep Color, 3D, and multi-channel HD lossless audio — all through one connection. The HDMI output can also handle DVI signals using an appropriate adapter or interface cable[2].

A single fiber strand connects the DM-RMC-100-S to a DM switcher or transmitter, transporting video, audio, control, and networking signals all through one simple SC type optical connection.[1] Multiple DM-RMC-100-Ss may be installed to handle each display in a multiroom distribution system, all fed from a central DM-MD series switcher. Or, a single DM-RMC-100-S can be fed straight from a DM 8G Fiber transmitter, affording a simple solution for extending a computer or AV signal to a single display.

LAN Connectivity
Along with high-definition AV and control, DigitalMedia also integrates high-speed Ethernet networking for a total signal distribution solution. The DM-RMC-100-S includes a 10/100 Ethernet port, providing a convenient LAN connection for a local network device.

Embedded Device Control
The primary objective of every Crestron system is to enable precisely the control desired for a seamless user experience. The DM-RMC-100-S includes built-in RS-232, IR, and Ethernet control ports to allow programmable control of the display device connected to it. But, it can also provide an alternative to such conventional control methods by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI. Through its connection to the control system, the DM-RMC-100-S provides a gateway for controlling the display device right through the HDMI connection, potentially eliminating the need for any dedicated control wires or IR emitters.

Low-Profile Installation
The DM-RMC-100-S mounts conveniently to a wall, ceiling, or other flat surface. At just one inch deep, it fits easily behind a flat panel display or above a ceiling-mounted projector. All connections and LED indicators are positioned on the sides, ensuring optimal access and visibility for a clean, serviceable installation. An array of indicators is provided for easy setup and troubleshooting.
