Crestron® DigitalMedia 8G™ Cable (DM-CBL-8G-P) is a 350MHz-certified shielded twisted-pair (STP) cable 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 CAT5e 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.
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.
A Complete Crestron-Guaranteed Solution
Termination of DM 8G cable is accomplished using Crestron DM-8G-CONN shielded RJ45 type connectors. The DM-8G-CONN connector is 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 crimping tool.
Crestron DM-CBL-8G-P cable is plenum-rated for installation in an environmental air handling space as typical for commercial applications. For non-plenum applications, use DM-CBL-8G-NP.
