At InfoComm 2019 (June 12-14) in Orlando, Crestron showcased its expanded DM Lite endpoint product line, including the new HD-RX-4K-510-C-E and HD-RX-4K-410-C-E receivers. Both models provide auto-switching, amplified audio outputs for speakers, and network connectivity for management and setup.

The company says its expanded DM Lite product line can be “mixed and matched” to create simple room systems for most spaces.

Per Crestron: "Pair any DM Lite receiver with a Crestron MPC3 media presentation controller to add low-cost, simple room control. Engraveable buttons and dials on the MPC3 can be intuitively configured with the built-in .AV Framework software. The system can be provisioned, monitored, and managed using any web browser via the Crestron XiO Cloud IoT-based provisioning system.

Crestron says its full DM Lite product line offers a range of simple, low-cost, yet high-performance transmitters and receivers that provide switching and transport of 4K signals over standard Cat 5e cable. The DM Lite product line as expanded now provides local optional auto-switching, network connectivity, audio and video distribution, control distribution, and audio amplification.
