Extreme Touch Screen Graphics and HD Video, Crestron DGE-2 Digital Graphics Engine Now Available
Posted on Friday, July 1, 2011

 

HDMI® Connectivity with HDCP Support, Plus Dual Video Windows Turn V-Panel™ into a Complete Presentation and Entertainment Media Center   
 
Rockleigh, NJ, July 1, 2011 – Crestron today announced that the DGE-2 Digital Graphics Engine, its revolutionary extreme graphics processor for Crestron V-Panel™ high-definition touch screens, is now available. With a simple single-wire connection, DGE-2 lets users view content from multiple video sources such as DVD/Blu-ray players, PC and Mac® computers, the Internet, video conferences, security cameras and more, in multiple windows on any V-Panel display. Installations are now easier than ever with long distance one-wire connectivity. Simply connect to any V-Panel with a single cable while the DGE-2 and related AV source wiring remains hidden away back at the main equipment rack. Industry leading HDMI® connectivity with HDCP support makes V-Panel the only touch screen that enables reliable viewing of content-protected DVD, Blu-ray Disc®, digital HDTV, streaming video, and multimedia computer sources.
 
“Pairing DGE-2 with our V-Panel touch screen, lets you view virtually any video source you want, both HD digital and analog, in any screen layout you want using multiple windows,” said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron VP of Technology. “And now you can place your touch screen several hundred feet away from the main closet, connect it with a single wire and eliminate the time consuming job of running a bundle of cables to the touch screen location.”
 
The innovative and versatile multimedia capabilities of DGE-2 make it ideal for the classroom, boardroom, command center or in the home. With a wide choice of HDMI and multi-format analog inputs, DGE-2 enables simultaneous viewing of two different HD sources such as a Blu-ray player or content from a PC or Mac, each in individual fully-scalable windows. At the same time, you can also view streaming video from IP or wired security cameras, video conferencing codecs and streaming web content from video sites like YouTube®, Hulu® and Vimeo®.
 
While simultaneously controlling the home, boardroom, or lecture hall with finger touch simplicity, the DGE-2 provides everything needed for enjoying online music and movies, viewing Web pages and accessing most types of digital media without the need for a separate computer. DGE-2 comes with a built-in PC engine that combines advanced touch screen graphics performance with embedded PC apps including Windows Media® Player, Internet Explorer®, Adobe® Acrobat® Reader, and Microsoft® Word, Excel®, and PowerPoint® document viewers.
