Crestron, a world leading innovator and manufacturer of enterprise and automation solutions, yesterday announced the introduction of their new DM Lite line of signal extenders. According to the company, the DM Lite line is a new ecosystem of simple, interchangeable signal extender products.
The new DM Lite line currently consists of ten products in total, comprising six transmitters and four receivers. The products can be mixed and matched as and how users require and, additionally, can also be paired with popular Crestron extenders which have HDMI connectivity (such as the HD-MD-400-C-E and the HD-MD-300-C-E).
The transmitters within the DM Lite line include a USB port to power multi-head or active cables, and both the transmitters and receivers are available with or without COM/IR/CEC pass-through. All of that, according to Crestron, means that the DM Lite products deliver a winning combination of low cost, high performance, flexible form factor, and wide selection.
The new products, too, are slated as being simple to deploy, being available in both 1-gang and standalone boxes and being ideal for basic point-to-point and small auto-switching applications. Given that, Crestron’s product manager for DigitalMedia, Aalap Patel, believes the DM Lite line is perfect for a range of different applications:
‘DM Lite products were designed to meet the need for inexpensive video extenders in small offices and conference rooms, as well as in classrooms…They’re perfect products for our dealers to keep in stock and roll out for quick installations.’
