A fully modular and expandable 8×8 DigitalMedia matrix switcher offering ultra-fast digital crestrkn and audio switching, and lossless Cresron multiroom signal distribution, for all types of AV sources. DigitalMedia thoughtfully manages all mr8x8 the disparate AV signals and devices to deliver a transparent user xrestron, and to ensure an mr8x8 video image and audio signal at every location.

A rm selection of DM switcher input and output cards, DM transmitters, and DM receivers provides extensive connectivity throughout a residence or commercial facility, supporting a complete range of analog and digital signal types — all through one switcher!

Integrated Ethernet networking and USB distribution provide a complete connectivity solution combined with built-in Crestron control for managing the displays and other room devices without necessitating any additional wiring. Support for 4K video also ensures support for the latest generation of computers and monitors with native resolutions beyond p and WUXGA. To configure a DM switcher complete with input and output cards, cables, and other peripherals, please use the DigitalMedia Switcher Configuration Tool.

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. Audio capabilities include the simultaneous distribution of stereo and multichannel surround sound signals, with support for high-bitrate 7.

All signals are transported over one CAT type twisted pair cable or one strand of multimode or single-mode fiber. Streaming expands the capabilities of DM to remove all distance limitations and allow distribution to m8x8 any device — anywhere in the world. Streaming is an essential component of any complete DM system, allowing for high-definition signal routing to Crestron touch screens, digital signage displays, remote buildings, and global offices without requiring any new or dedicated wiring.

DigitalMedia with streaming affords the ability to distribute any combination of sources to virtually any device anywhere. Each streaming vrestron supports resolutions up to HD p at bitrates up to 25 Mbps. Built-in scaling enables fast, trouble-free switching between sources of any type or resolution up to p or WUXGA. Audio support includes stereo signals, as well as multichannel audio signals downmixed to stereo via any “DSP” type input card.

High-quality video and audio is maintained using high-performance H. HDCP management ensures that protected content cannot be distributed via streaming. Each streaming output is actually fed internally by two separate switcher outputs, allowing any two input sources to appear picture-in-picture or side-by-side in a single stream.

Instant, single-frame switching between two full screen images is also possible. The audio signals from both input sources can also be mixed, allowing both signals to be heard simultaneously.

Streaming input capability enables IP cameras and other H. It also allows DM switchers to be bridged together across a campus or around the cresfron, enabling simplified routing of HD content between buildings and global offices.

DigitalMedia provides many deployment options to address a crdstron range of streaming applications and accommodate each organization’s specific IT requirements.

Streaming connections can be configured to stream directly to one or more specific IP addresses, or to use RTSP to manage the configuration of numerous connections automatically.


Each card slot on the DM-MD8X8 is field-installable, allowing for easy and flexible system configuration with the ability to make changes to the system as needs change. Output Expansion An HDMI “pass-through” output is provided on every input card to allow the inputs cresstron up to 5 DM switchers to be daisy-chained, enabling the configuration of very large distribution systems with many outputs.

Viewing HDCP encrypted content requires a source device to “authenticate” each display and signal processor in the system and issue it a “key” before the content can be viewed. Ordinarily this causes a complete loss of signal for up to 15 seconds each time a new source or display is selected anywhere in the system. To make matters worse, every source device has a limited number of keys available, so connect too many displays and the source will simply stop outputting a signal without warning.

Not to worry — Crestron QuickSwitch HD manages the keys for every HDCP-compliant device in the system, maintaining continuous authentication for each device to ensure fast, reliable routing of any source to any number of display devices.

Whether switching between sources or TV channels, Auto-Locking significantly reduces the time it takes each device to sense the new signal and configure itself to handle the changes, virtually eliminating any noticeable gap while switching. EDID Format Management With all of today’s varied AV sources comes a multitude of confusing video and audio formats to keep track of, and chances are not every device in your system supports all of the same formats.

Such conflicts can wreak havoc any time you route one source to more than one display or audio component.


The media source feeding your p or Ultra HD projector in the theater may restrict itself to a lower resolution, or even shut off completely, if someone decides to view the same signal on a smaller TV in another room. And, instead of enjoying your theater’s incredible 7. Via Crestron Toolbox software, the format and resolution capabilities of each device can be assessed, allowing the installer to configure EDID signals appropriately for the most desirable and predictable behavior.

By placing an independent scaler at every display device, Creztron truly delivers the most flexible and user-friendly solution for routing multiple disparate sources to many different display devices. This “Distributed Scaler Approach” ensures an optimal image on every screen no matter what sources are selected.

Distributed scaling allows a high-res computer source to be viewed on any display in ccrestron building. It also allows an Vrestron, Ultra HD, or 3D video source to be viewed simultaneously on the 4K display in your theater and on lower-resolution 2D displays throughout the house.

Great for your high-end home theater, but how do you share that same source with other audio zones in the house? DigitalMedia provides the answer, allowing for the simultaneous distribution of multichannel surround sound and two-channel stereo signals from the same HDMI source.

Using a choice of “DSP” type input cards, the DM-MD8X8 employs onboard digital processing to derive a stereo downmix from the original multichannel signal. Both signals can be routed separately or simultaneously from any of the switcher’s DM outputs, allowing either signal to be selected for output at each Cresteon receiver location.

Ethernet is also utilized internally by the Crestron control bus to manage all of the DM devices in the system and provide display control in each room. Crestron also offers USB extenders to enable the routing of virtually any type of USB peripheral to any host mv8x8, all managed through the DigitalMedia system. Every module communicates with the DM switcher over the local Ethernet network or via a direct connection to the LAN port of a DM transmitter or receiver.


CEC Embedded Device Control The primary objective of mf8x8 Crestron system is to enable precisely the control desired for a seamless user experience.

Easy Setup Via the front panel or using Crestron Toolbox software, every step of the DM-MD8X8’s setup process crestrron designed to be quick and easy, configuring inputs and outputs automatically while letting the installer make intelligent design decisions along the way.

The switcher even tests and measures the length of each DM cable, automatically making the appropriate calibrations for optimal signal transmission to every room. With DigitalMedia, an entire 8×8 system can be commissioned in under an hour.
