Media MasterHow do you get audio and video from multiple DVRs, a hard-drive-based movie server and several security cameras to 13 video displays in a house? Electronics installation firm Gramophone of Timonium, Md., used Crestron’s DigitalMedia system and a fiber-optic network to deliver all of that audio and video. The result is an end-to-end digital network, using a 16 x 16 DigitalMedia switcher and DigitalMedia fiber receivers/room controllers, which connect to video displays to create a high-bandwidth, high-speed, one-wire network. The switcher provides lossless HD signal distribution and simultaneous distribution of multichannel surround sound and two-channel stereo signals from the same HDMI source. It also features integrated Ethernet networking through a Gigabit port and USB HID (Human Interface Device like a mouse or keyboard) distribution.
