Provides a remote input connection for HDMI and RGB sources as part of a complete DigitalMedia System. Connects to the DM CAT input of a DM Switcher or Receiver via DM Cable. Includes a USB HID device port, allowing a mouse/keyboard to be connected for controlling a computer or other host device at a different location. Mounts in a double-gang electrical box.
The DM-TX-200-2G is a DM CAT transmitter and switcher that installs in a double-gang wall box to provide a convenient interface for computers and high-definition AV sources as part of a complete DigitalMedia system. With both HDMI® and RGB inputs, the DM-TX-200-2G is ideal for wall, lectern, and floor box applications in a boardroom, classroom, or residence to provide an input for a laptop computer or similar source. It connects to any DM-MD series DigitalMedia switcher or DM-RMC-100 Room Controller via a single DM cable.
As the leader in HDMI and control system technologies, Crestron® has developed DigitalMedia, the first complete HD AV distribution system that takes HDMI to a higher level, and allows virtually any mix of AV sources to be distributed throughout the home, office, school, or virtually any other facility.
DigitalMedia distributes uncompressed digital video and audio signals up to 450 feet (137 m) using DM cable. DigitalMedia thoughtfully manages all of the different signals and devices, matching each source's output to the capabilities of the selected display(s) without using scaling or compression. Every signal is preserved in its native video resolution and audio format, ensuring a pure, lossless signal path throughout.
Multimedia Computer/AV Interface
The DM-TX-200-2G provides simple switching between two inputs. Its HDMI input supports HDCP and handles WUXGA computer resolutions and 1080p60 HDTV with multi-channel lossless audio. The HDMI input can also handle DVI and DisplayPort Multimode signals using an appropriate adapter or dongle. The RGB input handles all analog RGB signals up to WUXGA 1920x1200 pixels, as well as component video up to 1080p60. A mini-TRS stereo audio input is also provided to accept analog audio signals from an unbalanced line-level or headphone output.
Used with a single DM-RMC-100 Room Controller and optional Crestron Control System, the DM-TX-200-2G affords a very simple solution for extending a multimedia computer or AV signal to a single display up to 450 feet (137 m) away. As part of a larger system using a DM-MD series switcher, multiple DM-TX-200-2Gs may be installed to enable the distribution of several sources at different locations to feed multiple displays throughout any room or larger facility.
Also, when connected to a DM-MD series switcher, the DM-TX-200-2G functions as a keyboard/mouse extender, allowing a USB HID-compliant keyboard and/or mouse at the podium or conference table to control a computer or other host device located at the central equipment rack.
EDID Format Management
The DM-TX-200-2G allows for management of the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) information that passes between the display devices and input sources in the system. Using Crestron Toolbox™ software, the format and resolution capabilities of each device can be assessed and managed through the DM-TX-200-2G, ensuring reliable operation by instructing sources to output only the resolutions and formats that can be handled by the displays and system wiring.
CEC Embedded Device Control
The primary objective of every Crestron system is to enable precisely the control desired for a seamless user experience. 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-200-2G 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 probes. Through proper CEC signal management, DigitalMedia allows you to take control of each device in the system as you like.
Simple Wall Mount Design
The DM-TX-200-2G is designed to be wall mounted using a standard electrical box or plaster ring. The DM cable is terminated to the rear of the transmitter using screw terminals. An array of indicators on the front of the DM-TX-200-2G provides for easy setup and troubleshooting, verifying the status of connections and signal activity at a glance. Advanced configuration is enabled through Crestron Toolbox™ software.
A Digital Upgrade for Legacy Systems
The DM-TX-200-2G 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-200-2G allows every RGB, component, S-Video, and composite video input on the MPS to be converted to DigitalMedia. Analog audio is converted similarly through a simple unbalanced stereo audio cable. The DM-TX-200-2G's HDMI input may also be used to expand the input capabilities of the MPS system to handle digital AV sources.
