        DMC-4KZ-C

        DigitalMedia 8G+® 4K60 4:4:4 HDR Input Card for DM® Switchers, HDBaseT® Compatible

        Provides a single DM 8G+® or HDBaseT® input for any DigitalMedia™ Switcher with modular input card slots. Handles 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR video signals.

        The DMC-4KZ-C is an input card designed for use with any card-based Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher. It provides one DM 8G+® input, with complementary HDMI® pass-through and analog audio outputs. Using a single CAT type twisted pair cable, the DM 8G+ input enables the connection of a DM 8G+ transmitter, the output of another DM® switcher, or an HDBaseT® certified source.[1]

        NOTE: Refer to model DMC-4KZ-C-DSP for use with surround sound sources.

        4K60 4:4:4 & HDR Support
        Crestron DigitalMedia (DM) was the world’s first AV signal distribution solution to deliver end-to-end 4K signal management for large-scale commercial and residential applications. DM “4KZ” cards and endpoints enable new and existing DM systems to handle full 4K60 4:4:4 video signals, as well as HDR video signals (HDR10), without having to replace any wiring or switchers. Any Crestron DM system that supports 4K can be upgraded to handle 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR by simply installing DM 4KZ based cards, transmitters, and receivers. The DMC-4KZ-C is designed to replace an existing DMC-4K-C or DMC-4K-C-HDCP2 input card without requiring any extra configuration or programming.[2]

        DM 4KZ technology employs VESA® Display Stream Compression (DSC) to enhance the capabilities of DigitalMedia to handle the extreme bandwidth requirement of resolutions beyond 4K30 4:4:4 and 4K60 4:2:0. DSC is a lightweight, line-based 2:1 compression standard that delivers visually lossless performance for 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR signals. DSC is applied only to 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR input signals. All other signals are transported uncompressed.

        DigitalMedia 8G+®
        Engineered for ultra high-bandwidth and ultimate scalability, DigitalMedia 8G+ (DM 8G+) provides a true one-wire lossless transport for moving high-definition video, audio, power, Ethernet, and control signals over twisted pair copper wire. DM 8G+ transports uncompressed Full HD 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals over distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using Crestron DM Ultra Cable, Crestron DM 8G® Cable, or third-party CAT5e. Higher resolutions up to UHD and 4K are supported at distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using DM Ultra Cable, 230 feet (70 m) using DM 8G Cable, or 165 feet (50 m) using CAT5e.[1]

        HDBaseT® Compatible
        Crestron DigitalMedia 8G+ technology is designed using HDBaseT Alliance specifications, ensuring interoperability with other HDBaseT certified products. An HDBaseT compliant device can be connected directly to the DM 8G+ input on the DMC-4KZ-C without requiring a DM transmitter.

        HDMI® Pass-Through
        Every DM switcher input card includes an HDMI output port, which can be used to pass the input signal through to a local audio processor or video monitor, or to feed a second DM switcher for output expansion purposes.[2]

        Audio De-embedding
        The DMC-4KZ-C includes an unbalanced analog audio output, which allows stereo audio signals to be extracted from the digital input and fed to a multiroom audio distribution system. The output volume is adjustable via a control system using a keypad, touch screen, handheld remote, or mobile device.[3]

        NOTE: For applications requiring the simultaneous distribution of multichannel surround sound and 2-channel stereo audio signals, use model DMC-4KZ-C-DSP.

        CEC Embedded Device Control
        For controlling third-party AV devices, DigitalMedia offers an alternative to conventional IR, RS-232, and Ethernet by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI. Through its connection to a control system (via the DM switcher), the DMC-4KZ-C provides a gateway for controlling devices right through their HDMI or HDBaseT connections, potentially eliminating the need for any dedicated control wires or IR emitters.

        Power over DM®
        Power over DM (PoDM) technology affords a true one-wire solution by supplying power to the connected device over the same wire that carries video, audio, and data signals. To enable PoDM power sourcing through the DM 8G+ input port (DM IN), simply connect a compatible PoDM or PoE power source to the PoE/PoDM input port (POE IN). Compatible power sources include Crestron models DM-PSU-8-PLUS, DM-PSU-16-PLUS, DM-PSU-ULTRA-MIDSPAN, and CEN-SWPOE-16, or any IEEE 802.3af or 802.3at compliant PoE PSE (Power Sourcing Equipment).

        Support for PoDM+ is enabled using any of the Crestron models listed above, or a third-party 802.3at Type 2 PSE. PoDM++ power sourcing is enabled using the DM-PSU-ULTRA-MIDSPAN only. PoDM may also be used to power HDBaseT PoE powered devices.[4]

        Standalone DM 8G+ Receiver
        In addition to its use as an input card for DM switchers, the DMC-4KZ-C may also be used with the DMCI DigitalMedia Card Interface[5] to provide a DM 8G+ receiver solution that's perfect for installation in an equipment rack or AV cart, or as a portable display interface.

        To configure a DM switcher complete with input and output cards, cables, and other peripherals, please use the online DigitalMedia Switcher Configuration Tool.

        Please refer to the DigitalMedia webpage at https://www.crestron.com/digitalmedia for additional design tools and reference documents.

        1. The maximum cable length for DigitalMedia 8G+ (DM 8G+) or HDBaseT is dependent upon the type of cable and resolution of the video signal. Refer to the “Maximum Cable Lengths” table for a detailed overview. Crestron legacy cable models DM-CBL DigitalMedia Cable and DM-CBL-D DigitalMedia D Cable support the same resolutions and cable lengths as CAT5e. Shielded cable and connectors are required when bundling multiple cables in a wire run, and are recommended for all applications 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. 4K60 4:4:4 performance and HDR support require the use of HDMI cables and couplers with a minimum TMDS bandwidth of 18 Gbps. If 4K60 4:2:0 or 4K30 4:4:4 performance is acceptable, cables and couplers with a minimum bandwidth of 10.2 Gbps may be used. Please be aware that bandwidth loss is cumulative, so performance may be reduced when inserting multiple cables and couplers inline.
        3. The analog stereo audio output is only active when the input source is outputting a 2-channel stereo signal. For applications using a multichannel surround sound source, use model DMC-4KZ-C-DSP which provides simultaneous surround sound and stereo downmix output signals.
        4. To enable PoDM or HDBaseT PoE power sourcing via the DM IN port, the POE IN port must be connected to a PoDM power supply (DM-PSU-8-PLUS, DM-PSU-16-PLUS, or DM-PSU-ULTRA-MIDSPAN) or an 802.3af or 802.3at compliant PoE PSE (CEN-SWPOE-16 or third-party). PoDM+ and HDBaseT PoE+ are supported using any of the listed Crestron models, or other 802.3at Type 2 Class 4 compliant PoE+ PSE. PoDM++ power sourcing is supported using the DM-PSU-ULTRA-MIDSPAN only. Refer to the connected DM 8G+ or HDBaseT device for its PoDM or HDBaseT PoE capabilities and requirements. Any wiring that is connected to a PoDM, PoE, or HDBaseT PoE PSE port is for intra-building use only and should not be connected to a line that runs outside of the building in which the PSE is located.
        5. Item(s) sold separately.
        6. DVI is supported via the HDMI output using a suitable adapter or interface cable. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables are available separately.
