Crestron DigitalMedia Test Labs Video Tour

If you are an AV integration nerd then here’s a video to get you all hot under the collar.  The quick tour of the DigitalMedia AV Network labs shows where Crestron carry out their source compatibility testing.  Also shown are the large system racks and the distribution of audio, video, Ethernet, USB and control data over a single ‘8G’ cable

“There’s no question that the digital age is here today. Analog television is off the air; practically every device that plugs into a display has an HDMI port; the latest MacBooks only provide DisplayPort outputs; laptops now include built-in Blu-ray players; and the latest video conferencing systems feature HDMI/DVI outputs exclusively. The products you’re using now won’t work for much longer. Crestron DigitalMedia™ (DM) is the only solution that answers the challenges of tomorrow – today.

Crestron began designing products with HDMI technology more than five years ago, and have shipped thousands of HDMI products over the last three years. But DM is more than just another HDMI switcher or extender; it’s a complete, integrated solution that manages, controls and distributes all analog and uncompressed HD digital content over twisted pair or fiber. DM matrix switchers are flexible, modular systems that can accept virtually every signal type and transmit them long distance as digital DM signals. Built-in exclusive QuickSwitch HD™ technology pre-authorized HDCP keys and maintains a constant handshake for continuous, glitch-free HD switching. At the end points, DM receivers control and output HDMI to the display.

Crestron DigitalMedia is the only solution for the digital age, distributing all analog and uncompressed HD digital signals, and managing embedded data such as HDCP, EDID and CEC. ”

    I wonder if they have tried getting a playstation 3 controller working through the system yet

  2. I can’t believe they rested the open PCB on the outside of a ESD bag. Tut tut!
