Rockleigh, NJ, December 15, 2015 – Streaming is great for transmitting video long distance. But when you need switching within a room any delay is unacceptable. Fortunately, DM® can stream and distribute zero-latency, uncompressed video on the same platform. That gives you a tremendous advantage: you can choose the way video is transmitted on an input-by-input and output-by-output basis.
It’s all about bandwidth
Unlike DM, other manufacturers’ streaming-only solutions can’t stream uncompressed 2K or 4K video. They have to compress it. As a result, image quality suffers. The limiting factor in all this is network bandwidth.
Other streaming products on the market consume up to 880Mb/s. Because of the extremely high bandwidth requirements, the number of rooms to which you can stream at any one time is limited. This necessitates many network rules to manage the streams and the bandwidth.
Streaming without limits
DigitalMedia eliminates these problems. It streams high-quality H.264 video at around 10Mb/s out-of-the-box. Additionally, bandwidth consumption is controllable – up to 25 Mb/s for the absolute highest quality, down to less than 1 Mb/s for demanding long distance and mobile applications, where bandwidth is limited and/or very expensive. So, with DM, practically any network can handle unlimited streaming.
In addition to our DM streaming input and output cards for our modular matrix switchers, we now offer the new Streaming Transmitter/Receiver (DM-TXRX-100-STR), and the HD Streaming Receiver & Room Controller 100 (DM-RMC-100-STR) room box receiver. Together, they provide very low-cost, low profile PoE solutions that add streaming to any space without the need of a switcher or control system in the room.
Add streaming to any room
Configurable as a standalone transmitter or receiver, the DM-TXRX-100-STR is a compact H.264 streaming encoder/decoder designed to stream high-definition content anywhere on the IP network and receive streaming content from anywhere on the network. It’s perfect for collaboration between offices, or even impromptu video conferencing.
The DM-TXRX-100-STR can be integrated with a DMPS3 Series DigitalMedia Presentation System, such as the DMPS3-4K150-C, a 4K 8X1 switcher (HD-MD8X1-4K) or (DM-MD8X1-4K-C), or one of the new low-cost DM transmitters coming soon, for an extremely versatile, low-cost presentation room solution.
Need to stream to a display?
The DM-RMC-100-STR is a simple, compact H.264 streaming room box receiver and display controller. It’s perfect for use in public spaces (e.g. lobbies, lounges, cafeterias), overflow rooms, or wherever there’s no content to distribute, but you want to display streams from the network.
