Crestron has just launched the new 4K DigitalMedia Receiver and Room Controller w/Scaler, the DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C. It fulfils a core component of the DM 3.0 digital standard with uncompressed bit-for-bit 4K/60 distribution and scaling, with brilliant razor-sharp images and smooth motion.

What makes this avant-garde product unique is its exclusive scaler chip, this is a specifically Crestron creation, no any other AV companies thus far has this capability. It can convert any resolution and frame rate to any other resolution and frame rate, up to 4096x2160 at 60 Hz.

The DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C can upscale 1080p and higher resolutions of the latest laptops and mobile devices to display on the latest 4K displays at their full 60 Hz frame rate, with the capability of downscaling 4K sources to properly display on 1080p displays. While it also intelligently converts frame rates for 24p and PAL sources, as well as convert 4K/30 Hz content to 1080p60 or 4K/60 Hz – this is the only scaler on the market that can do this. It can also create video walls, even spreading a 4K source across 1080p displays, while maintaining full resolution.

The DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C provides an advanced one-box interface solution for a single display device as part of a complete DM system. It functions as a DM receiver, 4K/60 Hz video scaler and control interface, providing a single HDMI output along with Ethernet, RS-232, IR, and relay control ports. It delivers high-quality video wall processing using the zoom capability on its output to display just a portion of the source image, it can support up to 64 individual displays, an eight by eight video wall.

At just over an inch deep, the DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C fits easily and discreetly behind a flat panel display or above a ceiling-mounted projector. All connections are located on its sides to provide easy access and visibility for a clean, easily serviceable installation.
