        DMC-4K-CO-HD-HDCP2.


        A modular output card for DM-MD8X8, DM-MD16X16, or DM-MD32X32 switchers. Provides two independent 4K DM 8G+® outputs, plus one HDMI® output in parallel with the first DM 8G+ output.

        NOTE: The latest version of the DMC-4K-CO-HD is model DMC-4K-CO-HD-HDCP2, which is an updated version of the original DMC-4K-CO-HD that adds support for HDCP 2.2. The original DMC-4K-CO-HD supports HDCP 1.1.

        The DMC-4K-CO-HD is an output card designed for use with any card-based Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher. It provides two independent DM 8G+® outputs, plus one HDMI® output. The HDMI output carries the same signal as the first DM 8G+ output. Both DM 8G+ outputs are compatible with HDBaseT®. Each DM 8G+ output enables connection to a DM 8G+ receiver, the input of another DM® switcher, or an HDBaseT certified display device or receiver, using a single CAT type twisted pair cable.[1] Power over DM (PoDM) is supplied through the same connection, providing a centralized power source for PoDM compatible receivers.[2]

        All outputs on the DMC-4K-CO-HD are capable of handling video resolutions up to 4K and Ultra HD. Support for 4K video also ensures support for the latest generation of computers and monitors with native resolutions beyond 1080p and WUXGA. DM 8G+ transports uncompressed Full HD 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals over distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using Crestron DM Ultra or DM 8G® Cable, or third-party CAT5e. Higher resolution signals up to UHD and 4K are supported over 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]

        Crestron DigitalMedia 8G+ technology is designed using HDBaseT Alliance specifications, ensuring interoperability with other HDBaseT certified products. Either DM 8G+ output can be connected directly to an HDBaseT compliant device without requiring a DM receiver.

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

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

        Are you upgrading an existing DM switcher that has older “multi-gang” DMCO-series output cards? Use the online Output Card Additions and Upgrades Tool to update your existing output cards and switcher to the new “single-gang” output card format.

        Please refer to the DigitalMedia Resources Webpage at http://www.crestron.com/dmresources/ 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 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. Supplying Power over DM (PoDM) or Power over HDBaseT (PoH) via either DM 8G+ output requires connection of the corresponding POE IN port to a PoDM Power Supply (DM-PSU-8 or DM-PSU-16, sold separately) or an 802.3af or 802.3at compliant PoE PSE. Supplying PoDM+ is supported using an 802.3at Type 2 Class 4 compliant PoE+ PSE, such as the Crestron CEN-SWPOE-16 (sold separately). Refer to the connected DM 8G+ or HDBaseT device for its PoDM or PoH capabilities and requirements. Any wiring that is connected to a PoDM, PoH, or 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.
        3. DVI is supported via the HDMI output using a suitable adapter or interface cable. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables are available separately.
