Crestron Ships HDBaseT 4K Transmitter and Receiver

crestron-digitalmedia-transmitter-0116Crestron is shipping its 4K DigitalMedia Transmitter 202 (DM-TX-4K-202-C) and 4K DigitalMedia Transmitter 302 (DM-TX-4K-302-C) which are spec’d to transmit 4K (up to 4096×2160 @ 60 Hz with color sampling of 4:2:0 or 2560×1600 @ 60Hz with color sampling of 4:4:4) and HD AV signals long distance to a room display. Both products function as transmitters and 2X1 and 3X1 switchers, respectively, and are aimed at classrooms and meeting rooms.

Both the DM-TX-4K-202-C and DM-TX-4K-302-C provide two independent 4K HDMI inputs with resolutions up to UHD and DCI 4K. The DM-TX-4K-302-C adds VGA and analog audio inputs. All inputs feature auto-detection for plug-and-play simplicity, and can be configured to switch automatically or be controlled through a Crestron control system.

The DM-TX-4K-202-C and DM-TX-4K-302-C include a fully HDBaseT compatible DM output for long-distance transmission and direct connection to an HDBaseT certified display device. An HDMI output is provided for pass-through of the selected source to feed a local display, monitor or sound system.

With both host and device ports built in, the DM-TX-4K-202-C and DM-TX-4K-302-C can be used as a USB keyboard/mouse extender. This allows a computer (or other USB HID-compliant host) to be connected to them and controlled remotely by a USB HID keyboard and/or mouse located elsewhere. Alternatively, you can connect the keyboard/mouse locally and use it to control a remote computer.
