Ultra high-performance CAT5e shielded twisted-pair cable designed to deliver optimum performance for the wiring of DigitalMedia 8G+®, HDBaseT®, and Sonnex® systems, and anywhere else CAT5e is required.

Crestron® DigitalMedia 8G™ Cable (DM-CBL-8G-P) is a 350MHz-certified twisted-pair cable with overall foil shield (F/UTP) that is engineered to deliver optimum performance for use in data networking and high-definition AV signal distribution applications. It is precision manufactured and tested to significantly exceed the CAT5e specifications for bandwidth, crosstalk, and interference rejection, and is qualified for use wherever a high-quality shielded CAT5e wire is required. DigitalMedia 8G Cable provides a complete Crestron-guaranteed wiring solution for use with DigitalMedia 8G+® devices, and is also highly recommended for use with Sonnex® Multiroom Audio Systems, HDBaseT®, and other CATx based audio, video, and data distribution products.

350MHz Multimedia and Data-Grade Shielded CAT5e

For digital multimedia or Ethernet data networking, DM 8G® Cable provides the finest shielded CAT5e on the market. Every spool is individually certified to ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2 Category 5e, and tested to 350 MHz bandwidth, ensuring ultimate performance for demanding AV and data network applications. Its high-quality 100% foil shield ensures very low EMI/RFI interference, preventing video signal interruption or loss of data — even in noisy environments. Foot markers printed on the cable's outer jacket make it easy to verify the exact length of each cable during installation.

DigitalMedia 8G+® HD AV Signal Distribution over One Wire

Crestron DigitalMedia™ (DM®) is the world's most evolved system solution for distributing uncompressed, high-definition digital video and audio throughout a home or commercial structure. DigitalMedia 8G+ is the latest generation of DM, providing a true one-wire transport for moving HD and Ultra HD video, high-bitrate 7.1 audio, high-speed Ethernet, and power over CAT5e. DigitalMedia 8G Cable is specially designed and pre-qualified for use with DM 8G+® transmitters, receivers, and switchers. Compared to ordinary CAT5e, DM 8G Cable affords much higher performance margin to ensure a reliable installation every time.[1]

HDBaseT® Recommended

HDBaseT technology is a consumer electronic connectivity technology optimized for whole-home and commercial multimedia distribution. HDBaseT converges uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, Ethernet, power, and control signals through a single CAT5e cable. Crestron DM 8G Cable is ideally designed and tested for use with HDBaseT products.[1]

A Complete Crestron-Guaranteed Solution

Termination of DM 8G cable is accomplished using Crestron DM-8G-CONN or DM-8G-CONN-WG shielded RJ45 type connectors. These connectors are specially designed to maintain maximum bandwidth and provide 100% shielding against interference to ensure consistent, reliable system performance. Quick and easy field-termination if facilitated using the DM-8G-CRIMP or DM-8G-CRIMP-WG crimping tools.[2]

DM-CBL-8G-P is Type CMP “plenum” rated for installation in environmental air-handling spaces.
