    Item #: DMB-4K-I-HD-DNT


    The DMB-4K-I-HD-DNT is an input blade designed for use with any blade-based Crestron DigitalMedia Switcher. It provides eight independent HDMI inputs with complementary analog audio inputs [1] and Dante audio networking. Each HDMI input handles Full HD 1080p, Ultra HD, 2K, and 4K video signals with support for HDCP 2.2, Deep Color, 3D, and high-bitrate 7.1 audio. Support for Dante audio networking allows for interfacing with other Dante enabled equipment over the local area network to send and receive streaming stereo audio on any or all input channels. The analog audio inputs are enabled using the optional Analog Audio Breakout Box, which provides support for balanced or unbalanced stereo line-level signals.

    Analog Audio Embedding
    Each HDMI input on the DMB-4K-I-HD-DNT is accompanied by a balanced analog audio input, allowing stereo analog audio signals to be embedded with the digital video signal. The analog audio inputs are enabled using the optional Analog Audio Breakout Box (model AUD-BOB-1602).[1]

    Dante Audio Networking
    Dante networking enables streamlined integration with Crestron Avia DSP products and other Dante enabled audio sources, processors, mixers, and switchers. Dante allows stereo audio input signals to be received over an Ethernet network and embedded with the video input signal from any of the blades HDMI inputs. Send/return loop capability is also supported, allowing audio from any HDMI or analog input to be externally processed, mixed, or switched via Dante, and then re-embedded with the video signal within the DM switcher. The Dante network interface is provided via the DM switchers LAN port, supporting up to 120 simultaneous stereo input and output signals.

    CEC Embedded Device Control
    DigitalMedia offers an alternative to conventional RS-232 and IR display control by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI. Through its connection to a control system (via the DM switcher), the DMB-4K-I-HD-DNT provides a gateway for controlling display devices right through their HDMI connections, potentially eliminating the need for any dedicated control wires or IR emitters.
