Provides a high-performance graphics engine for the Crestron® TSD-2220 and third-party touch screen displays. Supports advanced Smart Graphics® technology with dual-window video from HDMI®, DM®, and streaming sources. Its low-profile, surface-mountable design fits virtually anywhere.

The DM-DGE-200-C Digital Graphics Engine transforms an HD or Ultra HD touch screen display into an advanced Crestron® controller. Featuring Crestron Smart Graphics® technology, the DM-DGE-200-C provides for the creation of a completely custom graphical environment combining advanced controls for audio & video, lighting, shades, HVAC, security, and other functions with dual-window video display, annotation, audio feedback, and web browsing. Its low-profile, surface-mountable design allows for a discreet installation behind a flat-panel display, under a table, or inside a lectern or equipment rack.

The DM-DGE-200-C features a 4K UHD capable HDMI® output for connection to the display device, and includes a USB HID port for touch, mouse, and/or keyboard input. Additional control ports are provided to enable control of the display device and other equipment.[1,2] A single HDMI input allows an AirMedia® wireless presentation gateway or other high-definition video source to be connected and displayed on screen. A DM 8G+® input is included to support 4K UHD and DCI 4K sources connected at a DM® transmitter or switcher.[3] Additionally, H.264 streaming video signals can be received over a high-speed Ethernet connection.[4] Ethernet also provides the interface to a Crestron control system, which is required for touch screen and OSM control applications.[5]


OSM Interface
On-screen menu (OSM) capability offers an alternative to touch screen control, enabling a fully-customizable control menu to appear on any TV or video display, with simple navigation provided using the same Crestron handheld remote that’s controlling the TV. A USB mouse may also be used. The DM-DGE-200-C delivers stunning menu graphics that pop up unobtrusively at the edge of the screen alongside the video image, letting you quickly adjust lighting and climate control settings, lower the shades, check security system status, and lock or unlock the front door without interrupting the movie or TV program you’re watching. Detailed alert messages can also appear on screen in case of a security alarm, doorbell, or other event. You can even pop up a live streaming camera window to see who’s at the door or coming up the driveway.

Smart Graphics® Technology
The DM-DGE-200-C uses Smart Graphics to deliver the ultimate user experience and the ultimate value by enabling the creation of dynamically rich user interfaces with incredible efficiency and unparalleled functionality. Using Smart Graphics, programmers can swiftly integrate fluid gesture-driven controls, animated feedback, rich metadata, embedded apps and widgets, and full-motion video for a deeply engaging and ultra-intuitive touch screen experience.

Crestron Smart Graphics offers these enhancements and more:

  • Cool-looking graphical buttons, sliders, knobs, and gauges that are intuitive and fun to use
  • Kinetic effects to enhance the feeling of realism, with lists and toolbars that scroll with momentum at the flick of a fingertip
  • Drag-and-drop objects that snap into place, offering an easy way to switch sources
  • Dashboard widgets to personalize the touch screen with clocks, weather, news, and other information [7]
  • A power-saving screensaver that can display the time, temperature, and other text content at a reduced brightness level
  • Customizable themes allowing a completely different look and feel for every user, event, or season
  • Fully-developed SmartObjects® technology that enables sophisticated control over complex devices with minimal programming
  • A consistent look and feel across touch screens of varying sizes

HD Streaming Video
High-definition streaming video capability makes it possible to view security cameras and other video sources over the network right on the touch screen. Native support for H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the DM-DGE-200-C to display live streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming encoder (Crestron CEN-NVS200, DM-TXRX-100-STR, or similar), or a DigitalMedia™ switcher.[4]

4K DM 8G+® Input
Via its DM 8G+ input, the DM-DGE-200-C allows the display of video sources with resolutions up to Ultra HD and DCI 4K. Connectivity for such sources can be provided through a DM 8G+ transmitter or a DM switcher.[3,5,8,9]

HDMI® Input
An HDMI input is included to allow a local HD video source to be connected and displayed. Wireless presentation capability can also be enabled by connecting an AirMedia gateway to the HDMI input, allowing Wi-Fi® enabled laptops and mobile devices to connect wirelessly to the DM-DGE-200-C. Please note that the maximum resolution supported by the HDMI input is 1080p60 (1920x1080@60Hz). 

Low-Profile Installation

The DM-DGE-200-C mounts conveniently to a wall, ceiling, or other flat surface. Its compact, surface-mountable form factor fits easily behind a flat panel display, beneath a tabletop, or inside a lectern or other furniture. It can even be attached directly to a single rack rail in the back of an equipment cabinet.
