Crestron® DigitalMedia 8G+® Transmitter 201 with local HDMI output and LAN connectivity

Get to know this product.

Provides a remote input connection for HDMI® and VGA sources as part of a complete DigitalMedia™ System. Connects to the DM 8G+® input of a DM® Switcher or Receiver via CATx cable. Includes a USB HID device port, allowing the connected host device to be controlled by a keyboard and mouse at a different location.

The DM-TX-201-C provides an interface for computers and high-definition AV sources as part of a complete Crestron® DigitalMedia™ system. Its low-profile, surface-mountable design makes it ideal for installation beneath a conference table, inside a lectern or equipment rack, or at virtually any other location in a boardroom, classroom, auditorium, or residence. It functions as a DM 8G+® transmitter and switcher, providing HDMI®, VGA, and analog audio inputs along with Ethernet and USB HID ports for a total connectivity solution. In addition to DM 8G+, it is also compatible with HDBaseT®, allowing it to be connected directly to the input of an HDBaseT certified display device. It connects to the head end or display location using a single CAT type twisted pair cable.

DigitalMedia 8G+®

    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. The latest generation of DM is called DigitalMedia 8G™ (DM 8G®). Engineered for ultra high-bandwidth and ultimate scalability, DM 8G provides a true one-wire lossless transport for moving high-definition video, audio, Ethernet, and control signals over a choice of twisted pair or fiber optic cable.

    DM 8G over twisted pair copper wire is called DigitalMedia 8G+ (DM 8G+). DM 8G+ handles uncompressed Full HD 1080p video signals with support for HDCP, as well as computer signals up to WUXGA. All signals are transported over a single CAT type cable, supporting distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using Crestron DM 8G Cable or CAT5e.

HDBaseT® Certified

    Crestron DigitalMedia 8G+ technology is designed using HDBaseT Alliance specifications, ensuring interoperability with other HDBaseT certified products. Via its DM 8G+ output, the DM-TX-201-C can be connected directly to an HDBaseT compliant device without requiring a DM receiver.

Multimedia Computer/AV Interface

The DM-TX-201-C provides simple switching between two inputs. The inputs can be configured to switch automatically or be controlled through a Crestron control system. Inputs include:

    HDMI

    — Provides a digital multimedia input for mobile devices, computers, and AV sources with resolutions up to HD 1080p60 and WUXGA. Also handles DVI and Dual-Mode DisplayPort signals using an appropriate adapter or interface cable.[2]

    RGB

    — This VGA type input handles analog RGB signals up to WUXGA 1920x1200 pixels, as well as analog video up to 1080p60.[3] A 1/8" (3.5 mm) stereo audio input is included to accommodate the analog audio signal from an unbalanced line-level source or headphone output.

Note: Analog audio breakaway capability enables the analog audio input to be used with either video input.A single CAT type cable connects the DM-TX-201-C to a DM switcher or receiver, or to an HDBaseT device, transporting video, audio, control, networking, and power signals all through one simple RJ45 connection.[1,4,5] Used with a single DM 8G+ Receiver/Room Controller and optional Crestron control system, the DM-TX-201-C affords a simple solution for extending a computer or AV signal to a single display. As part of a larger system using a DM-MD series switcher, multiple DM-TX-201-Cs may be installed to enable the distribution of several sources at different locations to feed multiple displays throughout any room or larger facility.

Local HDMI Output

    An HDMI output is included to enable pass-through of the selected video and audio signals to feed a local display, monitor, or sound system.

LAN Connectivity

    Along with high-definition AV and control, DigitalMedia also integrates high-speed Ethernet networking for a total signal distribution solution. The DM-TX-201-C includes a 10/100 Ethernet port, which can be used to provide a convenient LAN connection for a local network device.

USB Signal Extension

    The DM-TX-201-C also functions as a keyboard/mouse extender, allowing the connected computer (or other USB HID-compliant host) to be controlled by a mouse and/or keyboard located at a presentation lectern, conference table, or some other remote location. Additional USB devices of virtually any type can be supported using Crestron USB over Ethernet Extenders (USB-EXT-DM).

CEC Embedded Device Control

    DigitalMedia provides an alternative to conventional IR and RS-232 device control by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI. Through its connection to the control system, the DM-TX-201-C provides a gateway for controlling the connected source device right through the HDMI connection, potentially eliminating the need for any dedicated control wires or IR emitters.

Crestron Connect It™

    A Crestron Connect It Cable Caddy (TT-100 series) offers a convenient tabletop connectivity solution that works with the DM-TX-201-C. The cable caddy gets its control from the DM-TX-201-C through a simple USB connection.

Compact and Versatile

    The DM-TX-201-C is designed to be mounted to a flat surface or placed on a shelf. It is compact enough to fit discreetly inside a presentation lectern or beneath a table, and can even be attached to a rack rail in the back of an equipment cabinet. The unit can be powered using the wall mount power pack (included), or PoDM (Power over DigitalMedia) for a true one-wire solution.[4,5] An array of indicators is provided for easy setup and troubleshooting.

A Digital Upgrade for Legacy Systems

    The DM-TX-201-C also affords a perfect signal converter for integrating DigitalMedia with analog-based systems like Crestron MPS, QuickMedia®, and the CEN-RGBHV Series. A simple HD15 VGA cable connected between the output of an MPS system and the input of the DM-TX-201-C allows every RGB, component, S-Video, and composite video input on the MPS to be converted to DigitalMedia. Analog audio is converted similarly through an unbalanced stereo audio cable. The DM-TX-201-C's HDMI input may also be used to expand the input capabilities of the MPS system to handle digital AV sources.
