DM-MD6X1
DM-MD6X1
6x1 DigitalMedia™ Switcher
The DM-MD6X1 delivers an incredibly versatile and cost-effective
solution for managing a complete range of digital and analog AV
sources in a small conference room or classroom, or as part of a
larger DigitalMedia distribution system. High-resolution computer
signals, standard and high-definition video, stereo analog and digital
multi-channel audio sources are all handled by the DM-MD6X1,
providing a perfect standalone switcher or multi-format interface for
installation in an equipment rack or presentation lectern.
Additional DigitalMedia (DM) inputs and output allow the DM-MD6X1 to
work with the full line of Crestron® DM transmitters, switchers,
receivers, and room controllers, affording extensive capabilities for
routing and distributing all of today's multimedia AV signal types
throughout a single room or larger facility. Combining DM technology
with a full complement of analog connections affords a perfect signal
converter for integrating DigitalMedia into any analog-based system
like Crestron MPS, QuickMedia®, and the CEN-RGBHV Series.
Multimedia Computer/AV Switcher
Inputs on the DM-MD6X1 include multi-format BNC video, RGB, HDMI®,
balanced line-level and SPDIF digital audio. The HDMI input supports
HDMI with HDCP, handling 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
dongle[1]. The RGB input handles analog RGB signals up to WUXGA
1920x1200 pixels, as well as component video up to 1080p60[2]. The
multi-format BNC input also accepts component HDTV signals up to
1080p60, as well as standard definition NTSC/PAL composite and
S-Video. Dedicated audio inputs include two stereo balanced line-level
analog and one SPDIF coaxial digital.
Additional inputs are easily added at locations up to 450 feet (137 m)
away[3] using DM Transmitters. Three CAT-type DM inputs are
provided on the DM-MD6X1, accepting inputs from individual DM
Transmitters as well as other DM switchers. A single DM CAT output is
provided to drive a DM Receiver/Room Controller at the display
location, or to feed another DM switcher. HDMI and analog audio
outputs are also included to feed a local video display and audio
system. The analog stereo output includes professional balanced
terminals and programmable volume control.
DigitalMedia™
As the leader in HDMI and control system technologies, Crestron has
developed DigitalMedia, the first complete HD AV distribution system
that takes HDMI to a higher level, and allows virtually any mix of AV
sources to be distributed throughout the home, office, school, or
virtually any other facility.
DigitalMedia distributes uncompressed digital video and audio signals
up to 450 feet (137 m) using DM cable[3]. DigitalMedia thoughtfully
manages all of the different signals and devices, matching each
source's output to the capabilities of the selected display(s) without
using scaling or compression. Every signal is preserved in its native
video resolution and audio format, ensuring a pure, lossless signal
path throughout.
QuickSwitch HD® Technology
Crestron exclusive QuickSwitch HD technology minimizes the annoying
switching latency that plagues typical HDMI switchers. QuickSwitch HD
achieves very fast switching of HDMI signals by maintaining a constant
HDCP connection with each HDMI device in the system, eliminating the
www.crestron.com
800.237.2041
need to re-authenticate each time a different source is selected.
Keyboard/Mouse Extender
The DM-MD6X1 also functions as a keyboard/mouse extender and switcher,
allowing a computer or other USB HID-compliant host device connected
to the DM-MD6X1 to be controlled by a keyboard and mouse at the
display location using a DM-RMC-100-1 room controller, or at a
presenter's location using select DM transmitters.
EDID Format Management
The DM-MD6X1 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-MD6X1, 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-MD6X1
provides a gateway for controlling AV devices right through their HDMI
connections, 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.
Easy Setup
The DM-MD6X1 is designed to be placed on a shelf or mounted in an
equipment rack or lectern. The front panel provides basic operation
right out of the box. User-friendly setup and troubleshooting tools
are provided via Crestron Toolbox™ software, performing automatic
input and output configuration while letting the installer make
intelligent design decisions along the way. The switcher even tests
and measures the length of each DM cable, automatically making the
appropriate calibrations for optimal signal transmission to each DM
device.
DM-MD6X1 6x1 DigitalMedia™ Switcher
A Digital Upgrade for Legacy Systems
The DM-MD6X1 also affords a perfect signal converter for integrating
DigitalMedia with analog-based systems like Crestron MPS, QuickMedia®,
and the CEN-RGBHV Series. A simple HD15 VGA cable connected between
the output of an MPS system and the input of the DM-MD6X1 allows every
RGB, component, S-Video, and composite video input on the MPS to be
converted to DigitalMedia[2]. Analog audio is converted similarly
through a simple balanced stereo audio cable. The DM-MD6X1's HDMI and
DM inputs may also be used to expand the input capabilities of the MPS
system to handle digital AV sources, and its analog audio output can
easily be fed into any spare input on the MPS to allow the digital
audio signals to be amplified and controlled through the MPS system.

Notes:
1. HDMI requires an appropriate adapter or interface cable to accommodate
a DVI or DisplayPort Multimode signal. CBL-HD-DVI and CBL-DP-HD interface
cables available separately.
2. 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.
3. For DigitalMedia CAT wiring, use DM-CBL DigitalMedia Cable. Up to two
DM Repeaters (Model DM-DR) may be required. Refer to the Crestron
DigitalMedia Design Guide, Doc. #4789 for complete wiring guidelines.
4. Audio breakaway capabilities and limitations: AUDIO/SPDIF IN 1 and
AUDIO IN 2 may each be switched freely regardless which video input is
selected; HDMI IN 3 audio may be switched freely only when HDMI IN 3 video,
or any DM IN video input, is selected; HDMI IN 3 audio cannot be selected
when VIDEO IN 1 or RGB IN 2 video inputs are selected; DM IN 4, DM IN 5,
and DM IN 6 audio may each be switched freely except when any other
numbered DM IN video input is selected; AUDIO IN 1 and SPDIF IN 1 inputs
are mutually exclusive.
5. For external DMNet power, use a Crestron CNPWS-75, C2N-SPWS300, or
other Cresnet power supply as required. Do not interconnect DMNet with
Cresnet.
