Crestron is now shipping its new DigitalMedia DM-DGE-200-C meeting room solution. The device is designed for multiple applications and supports auto-switching between HDMI and 4K/60 DM input, auto-display on/off, and H.264 decoding, IR control, and direct connectivity to Microsoft Exchange and Crestron Fusion Cloud via the LAN port.

Like many DigitalMedia products, the DM-DGE-200-C features a built-in graphics engine to generate custom welcome screens and messaging. The graphics engine is also useful for providing Crestron control graphics and web browsing for the Crestron TSD-2020 20in touch display, or for a third-party large format display.

Crestron has been bullish with its DigitalMedia line-up, with the brand seeing significant success in the commercial market in recent years. The DM-DGE-200-C is designed as a culmination of a lot of what the company has learnt throughout the years.

When connected to a display, the DM-DGE-200-C is capable of generating branded welcome screens, which include custom graphics, logo and simple connectivity instructions. The device can even be connected to a motion detector in a USB camera, such as the Crestron CCS-CAM-USB-F-100-SHROUD, which can automatically turn on the room display when the first person enters the room.

Modern meeting room systems from a variety of companies offer the one feature that companies have at the top of their list when considering what to specify – personalisation. The DM-DGE-200-C is no different, offering the ability to connect directly to Microsoft Exchange to show the room’s availability on the room display, or detailed meeting information, including the organiser’s name, subject of the meeting, start time, and the duration of the meeting. During the meeting, the room calendar information, including a countdown clock to show the time remaining, can be displayed over the presentation video.

The DM-DGE-200-C also connects directly to Crestron Fusion Cloud enterprise management service using the web-based setup tool. In addition to displaying the room calendar, it enables managers to collect device and room usage data so they can make informed decisions to improve workflow. (Collection of room usage data requires in-room motion detection via USB camera.)

With the DM-DGE-200-C synced to Crestron Fusion Cloud for calendaring, knowledge workers can use the Crestron PinPoint App to locate and book rooms right on their phones.

If a Crestron AirMedia Presentation Gateway (AM-101) is connected to the DM-DGE-200-C, the App will auto-discover the gateway and instantly connect when they enter the room, providing one-touch wireless presentation capability.
