Crestron Digital Media 8G 

Michael Pope, Gary Matthews and Jason Spence received DMC-D (Digital Media Certification - Designer) certification from Crestron Electronics on Digital Media, Crestron's complete, integrated solution that manages, controls and distributes all analog and uncompressed HD digital content over twisted pair or fiber. Crestron DigitalMedia is the only solution for the digital age, distributing all analog and uncompressed HD digital signals, and managing embedded data such as HDCP, EDID and CEC.

The digital age has arrived. Analog television is off the air; practically every device that plugs into a display has an HDMI port; the latest MacBooks only provide DisplayPort outputs; laptops now include built-in Blu-ray players; and the latest video conferencing systems feature HDMI/DVI outputs exclusively. The products you're using now won't work for much longer. Crestron DigitalMedia™ (DM) is the only solution that answers the challenges of tomorrow - today.  Audio Video Interiors is staying ahead of the curve to ensure that you and your business transition into this digital world seamlessly.

Pope, Matthews and Spence all achieved the Designer designation, joining Joe Calderaro, Project Engineer, who had received the certification in 2010.  Also on staff is Ronnie Giron, Project Engineer, who has earned the DMC-E (Expert)designation, qualifying Audio Video Interiors to bid on projects designed using the HD-DTDS (HD Digital Transport and Distribution System) specification, a comprehensive roadmap that clearly defines the critical aspects of system design and installation that must be followed to assure reliable system performance.
