The DMC-S is an input card designed for use with any card-based
Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher. It provides one DM 8G® Fiber input,
with complementary HDMI® pass-through and analog audio outputs. The
DM 8G Fiber input enables the connection of a DM 8G Fiber transmitter,
or the output of another DM® switcher, using a single strand of
multimode fiber.[1]
NOTE: Refer to model DMC-S-DSP for use with surround sound sources.
DigitalMedia 8G™ Fiber
Engineered for ultra high-bandwidth and ultimate scalability, DigitalMedia
8G Fiber (DM 8G Fiber) provides a true one-wire lossless transport for
moving high-definition video, audio, Ethernet, and control signals over
multimode fiber. DM 8G Fiber handles uncompressed Full HD 1080p video
signals with support for HDCP, Deep Color, 3D, and high-bitrate 7.1 audio,
as well as computer signals up to WUXGA. All signals are transported over
one strand of multimode fiber, supporting distances up to 1000 feet
(300 m) using CresFiber® 8G, or 500 feet (150 m) using other multimode
fiber optic cable.[1]
HDMI® Pass-Through
Every DM switcher input card includes an HDMI output port, which can be
used to pass the input signal through to a local audio processor or video
monitor, or to feed a second DM switcher for output expansion purposes.
Audio Extracting
The DMC-S also includes an unbalanced analog audio output, allowing
stereo audio signals to be extracted from the digital input and fed to a
multiroom audio distribution system. The output volume is adjustable via
a control system using a keypad, touch screen, handheld remote, or
mobile device.[2]

NOTE: For applications requiring the simultaneous distribution of multichannel surround sound and 2-channel stereo audio signals, use model
Standalone DM 8G Fiber Receiver
In addition to its use as an input card for DM switchers, the DMC-S may
also be used with the DMCI DigitalMedia Card Interface[3] to provide a
DM 8G Fiber receiver solution that’s perfect for installation in an equipment
rack or AV cart, or as a portable display interface.
To configure a DM switcher complete with input and output cards,
cables, and other peripherals, please use the online DigitalMedia
Switcher Configuration Tool.
Please refer to the DigitalMedia Resources Webpage at for additional design tools and
reference documents.
