At InfoComm 2011, Crestron introduced its first DigitalMedia Presentation System (DMPS), the next generation of the MPS Multimedia Presentation System. The DMPS-300-C offers a complete high-definition presentation control and signal routing solution that integrates a control processor, multimedia matrix switcher, mic mixer, audio DSP and amplifier with DigitalMedia 8G+ technology, into a single rackmountable component, company officials said.
With the new generation of DigitalMedia 8G+ single-wire technology built-in, DMPS-300 streamlines wiring for remote AV sources, computers, and displays, enabling any mix of digital and analog signals to be carried long distance over a single standard Cat-5e wire.
"The DigitalMedia Presentation System 300 combines our popular MPS Multimedia Presentation System family of products with our high-output DigitalMedia 8G+ AV network technology to provide everything needed to equip any room for the highest quality HD AV presentations, no matter what sources or displays you want," said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron vice president of technology, in a statement.
The DMPS-300-C provides high-performance matrix switching of seven simultaneous analog or digital sources to up to four HDMI or DVI display devices, plus up to three analog audio components. Integrated DM 8G+ inputs and outputs provide a one-wire interface for remote sources and display devices, supporting wire lengths up to 330 feet. DM 8G+ can also provide an interface to a central DigitalMedia switcher as part of a larger multiroom or room-combining system.
In addition to matrix switching, DMPS-300-C has a built-in control processor, onboard gated microphone inputs with enhanced DSP, and line- and mic-level mixing. The DMPS-300-C brings any presentation room into the digital age, according to Crestron, taking in every source signal, processing it, mixing and amplifying the audio, and transmitting it all over Cat-5e.
