Crestron has released the DGE-2 Digital Graphics Engine, its extreme graphics processor for Crestron V-Panel high-definition touch screens.
The DGE-2 Digital Graphics Engine.
With a 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.
“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.”
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, streaming video can be viewed from IP or wired security cameras, as well as video conferencing codecs and streaming web content from video sites like YouTube, Hulu and Vimeo.
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.
