Posted by Jeff Csisar on

Crestron AV2 Audio Video Control Processor

For those looking to connect room controllers to their Crestron AV2 control processors, there are two options available depending on what you as a customer requires. 8G DM cables and Cresfiber are the two main options for connecting DigialMedia components together.


8G DM Copper:

8G DM is a shielded twist pair Ethernet cable created by Crestron. The cable can come in Plenum or Non-plenum variations. The cables are designed for complete end to end Crestron solutions, but can be substituted for traditional cat 5e or cat 6 wiring.


CresFiber, also called DM 8G Fiber is fiber optic cable meant for longer distance runs of Crestron AV equipment. Cresfiber comes in multiple versions from the single mode, plenum based CRESFIBER8G-SM-P to multi-mode, non-plenum CRESFIBER8G-NP. Multi-mode fiber is recommended for shorter runs up to 300 meters while single-mode fiber can be run over distances up to 7.5 miles away.
