Installers are always flirting with the perils of the unknown when it comes to designing an infrastructure system for today and tomorrow’s A/V and networking needs.

Crestron Electronics’ new DM-RMC-150-S DigitalMedia 8G Fiber Receiver & Room Controller provides installers a certain level of certainty by offering electronics professionals a single component that receives all analog and digital HD audio/video content, control, data and Ethernet from a single multimode fiber strand and it outputs these signals via a HDMI cable that’s run to a HDTV.

In addition, Crestron says that because of fiber’s use as a next-generation infrastructure technology, it can handle signal distribution up to 1,000 feet to support its use in a whole-house A/V system.  The DM-RMC-150-S also offers relays, USB and closure sensing to provide installers with a few different installation options to implement the product in the field without compromising signal integrity. Other features built into the unit include analog stereo outputs, and it can support 3D video 1080p video with Deep Color and computer video signals with resolutions as high as 1,920x1,200.
