Crestron HD-MD8X1-4K 4K scaling presentation switcher

ROCKLEIGH, N.J. — Based on the DMP3-4K-150-C switcher, the new all-in-one Crestron 4K Scaling Presentation Switcher provides an affordable 4K auto-switching solution for smaller rooms, such as huddle spaces, and smaller budgets.

With up to eight inputs, the HD-MD8X1-4K provides the perfect fit for rooms that require connection to the room display via HDMI. The built-in 4K scaler can convert any resolution to any other resolution, up to 4096x2160.

The 4K Scaling Presentation Switcher with HDBaseT output (DM-MD8X1-4K-C) delivers all of the features of the HD-MD8X1-4K, plus a mic input and a DM output, so HDBaseT can be run to the room display. It’s targeted at rooms larger than a huddle space.

If you want to use remote transmitters or program your own system, the 3-Series 4K DigitalMedia Presentation System (DMPS3-4K-150-C) is the answer. The DMPS3-4K-150-C is designed for classrooms, small and medium conference rooms, and huddle spaces. It adds a 3-Series control system and two DM inputs for a 10x1 4K switching solution, and can be used with either .AV Framework or SIMPL Windows for custom programming.

The three all-in-one presentation switchers are built on the new Crestron .AV Framework technology, so they’re ready to go right out of the box. Setup is easy and can be done right from an iPad, laptop, or touch screen, without custom programming. Simply walk into the room, connect your cables, specify sources and displays, and the system is up and running. Crestron has prepared videos to demonstrate how to configure the device using .AV Framework for conference rooms and huddle spaces.

Additionally, all three switchers adhere to the DM 3.0 digital standard, which assures that they can be monitored and managed on the network, and deliver a consistent user experience in every room.

“We now have three ‘no programming’ presentation switchers and three control options that can be mixed and matched based on room size and application” said Justin Kennington, DigitalMedia technology manager at Crestron. “No programming not only means fast setup, but also a truly cost-effective solution for even the smallest huddle spaces.”
