Crestron Demonstrating Industry’s First and Only 4K/60 Hz Scaling Technology at ISE 2015

crestron_4k-60_scaler.jpg_AV professionals looking for a 4K/60 Hz scaler need not look further than Crestron stand #2-C-24 at Integrated System Europe 2015 in Amsterdam, February 10–12. Visitors are witnessing a live demonstration of end-to-end 4K/60 Hz switching and scaling, including support for HDCP 2.2, powered by the industry-first 4K DigitalMedia™ Receiver & Room Controller w/Scaler (DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C).

“While our competitors struggle to add 4K switching support to their products, we’ve raised the bar yet again with the first and only 4K/60 Hz scaler on the market,” said Justin Kennington, DigitalMedia Technology Manager at Crestron. “What makes this cutting-edge product unique is its exclusive scaler chip. We did the R&D ourselves at the Crestron Research Center. Other AV companies simply don’t have this capability. As a result, the technology can’t be found anywhere else.”

The all-new DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C fulfills a core component of the DM® 3.0 digital standard: uncompressed bit-for-bit 4K/60 distribution and scaling, with brilliant razor-sharp images and smooth motion.

Scaling goes upscale
The DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C is an engineering marvel. It converts any resolution and frame rate to any other resolution and frame rate, up to 4096×2160 at 60 Hz.

With the DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C you can:

  • Upscale 1080p and higher resolutions of the latest laptops and mobile devices to display on the latest 4K displays at their full 60 Hz frame rate
  • Downscale 4K sources to properly display on 1080p displays
  • Intelligently convert frame rates for 24p and PAL sources, as well as convert 4K/30 Hz content to 1080p60 or 4K/60 Hz – DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C is the only scaler on the market that can do this
  • Create video walls, even spreading a 4K source across 1080p displays while maintaining full resolution

Room solution in a box
The DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C provides an advanced one-box interface solution for a single display device as part of a complete DM system. It functions as a DM receiver, 4K/60 Hz video scaler, and control interface, providing a single HDMI® output along with Ethernet, RS-232, IR, and relay control ports.

High-quality video, wall to wall
The DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C delivers high-quality video wall processing. Using the zoom capability on its output to display just a portion of the source image, it can support up to 64 individual displays, for example, an eight by eight video wall.

Keeps a low profile
At just over an inch deep, the DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C fits easily and discreetly behind a flat panel display or above a ceiling-mounted projector. All connections are located on its sides to provide easy access and visibility for a clean, easily serviceable installation.
