Crestron announced today it is now shipping DM Lite, a new set of signal extender products. DM Lite is designed to be a low cost version of their DM systems that are available in both one-gang and standalone boxes. DM Lite products are designed for basic point-to-point and small auto-switching applications. They can extend 1080p signals up to 70 meters and 4K60 4:2:0 signals up to 40 meters using CAT5e.
The DM Lite product line currently consists of six transmitters and four receivers, any of which can be mixed and matched. Additionally, they can be paired with Crestron extenders with HDMI connectivity (HD-MD-400-C-E and HD-MD-300-C-E). DM Lite transmitters include a USB port to power multi-head or active cables. DM Lite transmitters and receivers are available with and without COM/IR/CEC pass-through.
