Crestron Ships Three 4K Switchers

crestron-hd-md4x1-0715Crestron is shipping three new 4K/60 HDMI switchers that they say are aimed for use in meeting rooms and classrooms. Labeled in their own release for “budget sensitive projects,” the HD-MD4x1-4K-E, HD-MD4x2-4K-E, and HD-MD6x2-4K-E each are spec’d for signals up to 4K/60 and include their DigitalMedia EDID management, native Crestron control via Ethernet, and a built-in Web server for configuration.

Each switcher is basically identical except for the number of inputs and outputs. The 4×1 4K HDMI source switcher (HD-MD4X1-4K-E) includes four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. The 4×2 4K HDMI matrix switcher (HD-MD4X2-4K-E) provides four HDMI inputs and two independent HDMI outputs, and the 6×2 4K HDMI Switcher (HD-MD6X2-4K-E) has six HDMI inputs and two  independent HDMI outputs. All three models are specified to switch HD at 1080p, Ultra HD, 2K and 4K and provide support for HDCP, 3D, Deep Color and 7.1 audio.

All three switchers feature thumbpad control and an OLED display for control and source selection and setup is done using the  front panel OLED display or a Web browser. Crestron says that no programming, tools or PC is required for installation.

The one-inch deep HD-MD4X1-4K-E and HD-MD4X2-4K-E are designed to be mounted to a wall or other surface in the room or they can fit behind a flat panel display or under a table. They can also be placed on a rack shelf, or attached to a single rack rail. The HD-MD6X2-4K-E is housed in a compact 1 RU rack mount chassis.
