The DM-TX-100-F is a DM® Fiber transmitter that provides a single HDMI® input for a computer or high-definition AV source. It is ideal for use at a lectern, conference table, wall plate, or any remote location in a boardroom, classroom, or residence to route an HDMI signal to a display or switcher many feet away.
As the leader in HDMI and control system technologies, Crestron® has developed DigitalMedia, the first complete HD AV distribution system that takes HDMI to a higher level, and allows virtually any mix of AV sources to be distributed throughout the home, office, school, or virtually any other facility.
DigitalMedia distributes uncompressed digital video and audio signals up to 1000 feet (300 m) using multimode fiber optic cable. DigitalMedia thoughtfully manages all of the different signals and devices, matching each source's output to the capabilities of the selected display(s) without using scaling or compression. Every signal is preserved in its native video resolution and audio format, ensuring a pure, lossless signal path throughout.
Multimedia Computer/AV Interface
Via its HDMI input, the DM-TX-100-F supports 1080p60 HDTV and WUXGA computer signals with HDCP, Deep Color, 3D, and multi-channel HD lossless audio. The HDMI input can also handle DVI and DisplayPort Multimode signals using an appropriate adapter or dongle. Crestron offers a complete range of professional AV interface cables and wall plates to complement the DM-TX-100-F for a total custom installation solution.
Used with a single DM-RMC-100-F Room Controller and optional Crestron Control System, the DM-TX-100-F affords a very simple solution for extending a multimedia computer or AV signal to a single display up to 1000 feet (300 m) away. As part of a larger system using a DM-MD series switcher, multiple DM-TX-100-Fs may be installed to enable the distribution of several sources at different locations to feed multiple displays throughout any room or larger facility.
The DM-TX-100-F also functions as a keyboard/mouse extender, providing a USB port which connects to the source device (i.e. computer or other USB HID-compliant host device), allowing it to be controlled by a mouse or keyboard located in another room, or at a presentation lectern, conference table, or some other remote location.
Embedded Device Control
The primary objective of every Crestron system is to enable precisely the control desired for a seamless user experience. The DM-TX-100-F includes built-in IR and Ethernet control ports to allow programmable control of the devices connected to it. The DM-TX-100-F also provides an alternative to conventional control methods by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI. Through its connection to the control system, the DM-TX-100-F 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 probes.
Compact and Versatile
The DM-TX-100-F is designed to be mounted to flat surface, or attached to a rack rail in the back of an equipment cabinet. It may also be used portably for connection to a DM wall plate input (MP-WP186 sold separately). It is compact enough to fit discreetly inside a presentation lectern or beneath a table. An array of indicators on the front of the DM-TX-100-F provides for easy setup and troubleshooting, affording clear verification of the status of connections and signal activity at a glance. Advanced configuration is enabled through Crestron Toolbox™ software.
