DigitalMedia 8G+
DigitalMedia 8G+™ provides a true one-wire transport for moving high-definition
video, audio, and Ethernet over low-cost twisted pair cable without compression or
repeaters. Just one eight-conductor twisted pair cable is required, supporting
distances up to 330 feet (100 meters) using Crestron DM 8G cable or CAT5e.4
DigitalMedia thoughtfully manages all of the various AV signals and devices in your
system, matching each source's output to the capabilities of the selected display(s).
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-C-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 dongle2. The RGB
input handles all analog RGB and VGA signals up to WUXGA 1920x1200 pixels, as
well as analog video up to 1080p601. A mini-TRS stereo audio input is also provided
to accept analog audio signals from an unbalanced line level or headphone output.
1. The RGB input can accept component, composite, and S-video signals via direct interface to Crestron
MPS Series products, or through an appropriate adapter (not included). Input sync detection is not
provided for composite or S-video signal types through the RGB connection.
2. HDMI requires an appropriate adapter or interface cable to accommodate a DVI or DisplayPort
Multimode signal. CBL-HD-DVI interface cable sold separately.
3. Power over DM (PoDM) requires connection to a DM 8G+ PoDM power sourcing device.

Operations & Installation Guide – DOC. 7255B
Crestron DM-TX-200-C-2G-FLOOR/WALL
DigitalMedia 8G+™ Transmitter 200
A single cable connects the DM-TX-200-C-2G to a DM switcher or receiver,
transporting video, audio, control, networking, and power signals all through one
simple RJ-45 connection1, 2. Used with a single DM 8G+ receiver/room controller
and optional Crestron control system, the DM-TX-200-C-2G affords a simple
solution for extending a multimedia computer or AV signal to a single display up to
330 feet (100 meters) away1. As part of a larger system using a DM switcher,
multiple DM-TX-200-C-2Gs may be installed to enable the distribution of several
sources at different locations to feed multiple displays throughout any room or larger
facility.
Keyboard/Mouse Extender
The DM-TX-200-C-2G also functions as a keyboard/mouse extender, allowing a
USB HID-compliant keyboard and/or mouse at the floor box location
(DM-TX-200-C-2G-FLOOR) or electrical box location (DM-TX-200-C-2G-WALL)
to control a computer or other host device located at the central equipment rack or
some other location.
EDID Format Management
The DM-TX-200-C-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-C-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-C-2G provides a gateway for controlling the
connected source device 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.
1. For DM 8G+ wiring up to 330 feet (100 meters) between devices, use Crestron DM-CBL-8G
DigitalMedia 8G cable, Crestron DM-CBL DigitalMedia cable, Crestron DM-CBL-D DigitalMedia D
cable, or generic CAT5e (or better) UTP or STP. Shielded cable and connectors are recommended to
safeguard against unpredictable environmental electrical noise which may impact performance at
resolutions above 1080p. Refer to the latest version of the Crestron DigitalMedia Infrastructure Guide

information below when a DM-TX-200-C-2G is dropped directly into an Ethernet
slot on the control system in SIMPL Windows without a DM switcher.
The IP ID is set within the IP table of the DM-TX-200-C-2G using Crestron
Toolbox. For information on setting an IP table, refer to the Crestron Toolbox help
file. The IP IDs of multiple DM-TX-200-C-2Gs in the same system must be unique.
When setting the IP ID, consider the following:
•
The IP ID of each unit must match an IP ID specified in the SIMPL
Windows program.
•
Each device using IP to communicate with a control system must have a
unique IP ID.

Earliest Version Software Requirements for the PC
NOTE: Crestron recommends that you use the latest software to take advantage of
the most recently released features. The latest software is available from the Crestron
Web site (www.crestron.com/software).
Crestron provides an assortment of Windows®-based software tools to develop a
customized system. Use SIMPL Windows to create a program to control the
DM-TX-200-C-2G.
Programming with SIMPL Windows
SIMPL Windows is Crestron’s premier software for programming Crestron control
systems. It is organized into two separate but equally important “Managers”:
Configuration and Program.
Configuration Manager
Configuration Manager is the view where programmers “build” a Crestron control
system by selecting hardware from the Device Library.
1.
To incorporate the DM-TX-200-C-2G into the system, drag the
DM-TX-200-C-2G from the DigitalMedia | DM Transmitters folder of the
Device Library and drop it into either of the following in System Views:
•
A compatible input card of a DM switcher
•
Directly to a card in the Ethernet slot of the control system (used
without a DM switcher)
NOTE: In SIMPL Windows, the DM-TX-200-C-2G-FLOOR and
the DM-TX-200-C-2G-WALL are referred to simply as the DM-TX-200-C-2G.

Uploading and Upgrading
Crestron recommends using the latest programming software and that each device
contains the latest firmware to take advantage of the most recently released features.
However, before attempting to upload or upgrade it is necessary to establish
communication. Once communication has been established, files (for example,
firmware) can be transferred to the control system (and/or device). In addition, the IP
table of the device can be configured.
Establishing Communication
Use Crestron Toolbox for communicating with the DM-TX-200-C-2G; refer to the
Crestron Toolbox help file for details.
A PC running Crestron Toolbox communicates with the DM-TX-200-C-2G in the
following ways:
Via DM Switcher
•
Via a DM switcher using TCP/IP or USB communication. TCP/IP provides
a faster method of communication than USB.
•
Via a DM 8G+ receiver/room controller (for example, DM-RMC-100-C)
using TCP/IP communication.

GNU General Public License
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document but changing it is not allowed.
PREAMBLE
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.
This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors
commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)
You can apply it to your programs too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that
you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can
get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs and that you know you can do these
things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you
have. You must make sure that they too receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to
copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the
original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that
any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be
distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program" below refers to any such program or work, and a "work
based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the
Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is
included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this
License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for
a fee.

DigitalMedia 8G+™ Transmitter 200: DM-TX-200-C-2G-FLOOR/WALL • 33
DigitalMedia 8G+™ Transmitter 200
Crestron DM-TX-200-C-2G-FLOOR/WALL
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does
not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program and
can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License and its terms do not apply to those
sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work
based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend
to the entire whole and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a
volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of
physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed
under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with such an
offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete
source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel and so on) of the
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access
to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to
copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void and will automatically terminate your rights under this
License. However, parties who have received copies or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so
long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so and
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.

6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do
not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you,
then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended
to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented
by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that
system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute
software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation
excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License
incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such new
versions will be similar in spirit to the present version but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies to it
and "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version
published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any
version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the
author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software
Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of all
derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO
THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE
COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND
PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE
COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT
HOLDER OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED
ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT
NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR
THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH
HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
