Using Crestron Digital Media with streaming affords the ability to distribute any combination of sources to virtually any device anywhere. Each streaming output supports resolutions up to HD 1080p at bitrates up to 25 Mbps. Built-in scaling enables fast, trouble-free switching between sources of any type or resolution. Audio support includes stereo signals, as well as multichannel audio signals down-mixed to stereo via a DM switcher input card with DSP. High-quality video and audio is maintained using high-performance H.264 video and AAC audio compression. The encoded video and audio can be output as independent RTP streams or encapsulated in an MPEG-TS (MPEG-2 Transport Stream) container. HDCP management ensures that protected content cannot be distributed via streaming.
DM 8G provides a true one-wire transport for moving high-definition video, audio, and Ethernet over low-cost twisted-pair or 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 simultaneous stereo and multichannel surround sound signals, with support for high-bitrate 7.1 audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ as well as uncompressed linear PCM.
