        DM-TX-201-C

        DigitalMedia 8G+® Transmitter 201

        Provides a remote input connection for HDMI® and VGA sources as part of a complete DigitalMedia™ System. Connects to the DM 8G+® input of a DM® Switcher or Receiver via CATx cable. Includes a USB HID device port, allowing the connected host device to be controlled by a keyboard and mouse at a different location.

        The DM‑TX‑201‑C provides an interface for computers and high-definition AV sources as part of a complete Crestron® DigitalMedia™ system. It functions as a DM 8G+® transmitter and switcher with HDMI®, VGA, and analog audio inputs along with Ethernet and USB HID ports for a total connectivity solution.

        Its low-profile, surface-mountable design makes the DM‑TX‑201‑C ideal for installation beneath a conference table, inside a lectern or equipment rack, or at virtually any other location in a boardroom, classroom, auditorium, or residence. It connects to the head end or display location using a single CAT type twisted pair cable. In addition to DM 8G+, it is also compatible with HDBaseT® standard, which allows it to be connected directly to the input of an HDBaseT certified display device.1

        HDBaseT® Compatible
        Crestron DigitalMedia 8G+ technology is designed using HDBaseT Alliance specifications, ensuring interoperability with other HDBaseT certified products. Via its DM 8G+ output, the DM‑TX‑201‑C can be connected directly to an HDBaseT compliant device without requiring a DM receiver.

        Multimedia Computer/AV Interface
        The DM‑TX‑201‑C provides simple switching among two inputs. The inputs can be configured to switch automatically or be controlled through a Crestron control system. Auto-detection on each input enables plug-andplay simplicity, supporting a wide range of input types without requiring any special configuration. Inputs include:

        • HDMI — Provides a digital multimedia input for mobile devices, computers, and AV sources with resolutions up to HD 1080p60 and WUXGA. These inputs can also handle DVI and Dual-Mode DisplayPort™ signals using an appropriate adapter or interface cable.2
        • RGB — This VGA type input handles analog RGB signals up to WUXGA 1920x1200 pixels, as well as analog video up to 1080p60.3 A 1/8in. (3.5 mm) stereo audio input is included to accommodate the analog audio signal from an unbalanced line-level source or headphone output.

        Note: Analog audio breakaway capability enables the analog audio input to be used with any video input.

        A single CAT type cable connects the DM‑TX‑201‑C to a DM switcher or receiver, or to an HDBaseT device, transporting video, audio, control, networking, and power signals all through one simple R-J45 connection.1,4,5 Used with a single DM 8G+ Receiver/Room Controller and optional Crestron control system, the DM‑TX‑201‑C affords a simple solution for extending a computer or AV signal to a single display. As part of a larger system using a DM-MD series switcher, multiple DM‑TX‑201‑Cs may be deployed to enable the distribution of several sources at different locations to feed multiple displays throughout any room or larger facility.

        Local HDMI Output
        An HDMI output is included to enable pass-through of the selected video and audio signals to feed a local display, monitor, or sound system.

        LAN Connectivity
        Along with high-definition AV and control, DigitalMedia also integrates high-speed Ethernet networking for a total signal distribution solution. The DM‑TX‑201‑C includes a 10/100 Ethernet port, which can be used to provide a convenient LAN connection for a local network device.

        USB Signal Extension
        The DM‑TX‑201‑C functions as a versatile USB keyboard/mouse extender with both host and device ports provided onboard. This allows a computer (or other USB HID-compliant host) to be connected to the DM‑TX‑201‑C and controlled remotely by a USB HID keyboard and/or mouse located elsewhere. Alternately, the keyboard/mouse may be connected locally and used to control a remote computer. Routing of the USB HID signals is handled through the DigitalMedia system. Support for other types of USB devices can be enabled using Crestron USB over Ethernet Extenders (USB‑EXT‑DM‑LOCAL and USB‑EXT‑DM‑REMOTE) and Crestron USB over Ethernet Network Wall Plate Endpoints (USB‑NX2‑LOCAL‑1G and USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G).6

        CEC Embedded Device Control
        DigitalMedia provides an alternative to conventional IR and RS-232 device control by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI. Through its connection to the control system, the DM‑TX‑201‑C 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 emitters

        Crestron Connect It™
        A Crestron Connect It Cable Caddy (TT-100 series) offers a convenient tabletop connectivity solution that works seamlessly with the DM‑TX‑201‑C. The cable caddy gets its control from the DM‑TX‑201‑C through a simple USB connection.7

        Compact and Versatile
        The DM‑TX‑201‑C is designed to be mounted to a flat surface or placed on a shelf. It is compact enough to fit discreetly inside a presentation lectern or beneath a table, and can even be attached to a rack rail in the back of an equipment cabinet. It can be powered using the optional power pack, PW‑2407WU (sold separately), or PoDM (Power over DigitalMedia Plus) for a true one-wire solution.4,5 An array of indicators is provided for easy setup and troubleshooting.

        A Digital Upgrade for Legacy Systems
        The DM‑TX‑201‑C also affords a perfect signal converter for integrating DigitalMedia with analog-based systems like Crestron MPS, QuickMedia®, and the CEN-RGBHV Series. A simple HD15 VGA cable connected between the output of an MPS system and the input of the DM‑TX‑201‑C allows every RGB, component, S-Video, and composite video input on the MPS to be converted to DigitalMedia.3 Analog audio is converted similarly through an unbalanced stereo audio cable. The DM‑TX‑201‑C’s HDMI input may also be used to expand the input capabilities of the MPS system to handle digital AV sources.

        1. For DM 8G+ or HDBaseT wiring, use Crestron DM-CBL-8G DigitalMedia 8G Cable or third-party CAT5e (or better) UTP or STP. (Crestron legacy DM-CBL DigitalMedia Cable or DM-CBL-D DigitalMedia D Cable may also be used.) The maximum wire length for DM 8G+ is 330 ft (100 m) between devices. Shielded cable and connectors are recommended to safeguard against unpredictable environmental electrical noise which may impact performance at resolutions above 1080p. Refer to the Crestron DigitalMedia Design Guide, Doc. #4546 for complete system design guidelines. DM 8G+ is compatible with HDBaseT Alliance specifications for connecting to HDBaseT compliant equipment. All wire and cables are sold separately.
        2. The HDMI connections can accommodate a DVI or Dual-Mode DisplayPort signal using an appropriate adapter or interface cable. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables are available separately.
        3. The RGB input can actually accept component, composite, and S-Video signals through an appropriate adapter (not included), or via direct interface to Crestron MPS Series products. However, input sync detection is not provided for composite or S-Video signal types through this connection.
        4. To power the DM‑TX‑201‑C using PoDM (Power over DigitalMedia) requires connection to a DM switcher or other DigitalMedia equipment that has a PoDM PSE port. Wiring that connects to a PoDM PSE port is for intrabuilding use only.
        5. To power the DM‑TX‑201‑C using HDBaseT PoE requires connection to a switcher or other equipment that has an HDBaseT PoE PSE port. Wiring that connects to a HDBaseT PoE PSE port is for intrabuilding use only
        6. USB over Ethernet Extender Modules are sold separately. Refer to the Crestron USB over Ethernet Extenders (USB‑EXT‑DM‑LOCAL and USB‑EXT‑DM‑REMOTE) and Crestron USB over Ethernet Network Wall Plate Endpoints (USB‑NX2‑LOCAL‑1G and USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G) spec sheets for more information.
        7. The DM-TX-201-C has a USB device port, which does not supply USB power. When connected to a TT-100 series cable caddy (sold separately), the cable caddy must be powered separately through a connection to a Cresnet® network or power supply. Refer to the TT-100 spec sheet for more information.
