64x64 DigitalMedia Switcher

Crestron® DM® Switchers provide the foundation for a complete DigitalMedia™ system, delivering an advanced 4K ultra high-definition AV signal routing solution that's extremely flexible and installer-friendly. The DM-MD64X64 is a modular matrix switcher designed for large-scale projects demanding ultimate reliability. It delivers ultra fast signal routing and pure, lossless distribution of HDMI® and other signals to support all the Blu-ray Disc® players, HDTV receivers, digital media servers, computers, cameras, and display devices that fill any modern facility. DigitalMedia thoughtfully manages all of the disparate AV signals and devices to deliver a transparent user experience, and ensure an optimum video image and audio signal at every location.

Featuring a scalable blade-based design, the DM-MD64X64 affords maximum input and output count in a condensed 14U rack-mountable chassis. The DM-MD64X64 is field-configurable to handle up to 64 inputs and 64 outputs, supporting HDMI, HDBaseT®, analog audio, and all types of DigitalMedia 8G™ signals.[1] Through a selection of hot-swappable input and output blades, and a variety of DM 8G® transmitters and receivers, the DM-MD64X64 allows extensive connectivity throughout a commercial or residential facility, supporting a wide range of signal types all through one switcher!

Integrated Ethernet networking and USB distribution provide a complete connectivity solution combined with built-in Crestron control[2] for managing the displays and other room devices without necessitating any additional wiring. Hot-swappable redundant power supplies and advanced system-wide monitoring ensure continuous, dependable operation for mission-critical applications. User-friendly operation, setup, and troubleshooting tools are provided through the front panel touch screen or Web browser interface to make setting up a complete multiroom 4K video distribution system easy.
