The CrestronÂ® HD-XSPA is a powerful surround sound processor, multi-channel amplifier, and DigitalMediaâ„¢ room box in one that makes it easy to enjoy spectacular, full-bodied 7.1 audio in a room as part of an integrated Crestron DigitalMedia whole-house 4K AV system.
Integrated by Designâ„¢
The HD-XSPA connects directly to a DM switch, eliminating the need for a separate DigitalMedia receiver in the room. A full range of built-in control ports, including RS-232, IR, Ethernet, and relay, allows for programmable control of local devices. CEC pass-through allows control of many devices via HDMIÂ®.
Pure 4K support
The HD-XSPA fully supports 4K Ultra HD sources and displays through 4 HDMI inputs, the DigitalMedia input, and the HDMI output, so it works flawlessly as part of a Crestron DigitalMedia distribution network. It decodes all the latest digital surround formats, including DolbyÂ® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audioâ„¢; and full input connectivity is provided for all types of digital and analog sources, including Blu-ray DiscÂ® players, HDTV receivers, game consoles, computers, and media servers.
Big performance, small form factor
Featuring a high-power, 8-channel amplifier, the HD-XSPA delivers professional-grade performance (140 Watts per channel @ 8 Ohms; 240 Watts at 4 Ohms). It includes a powered sub-channel, making it easy to install an in-wall subwoofer (such as a Crestron ASPIREÂ® IWS82) without impacting living space. Compact in design at just 2U, the HD-XSPA saves space in the equipment rack and integrates easily with other Crestron systems and AV equipment.
Audio that goes anywhere
In addition to providing spectacular 7.1 surround sound, the HD-XSPA simultaneously provides a 2-channel stereo downmix to feed to your whole house audio distribution system. In other words, now you can hear all the action from the big game anywhere in the house – not just rooms with surround sound. You can even allocate two channels of the integrated power amp for a downmix stereo feed to an adjacent space, like a bathroom or patio, leaving 5.1 for the main zone.
Surround sound performance is no longer limited to home theaters. Bring the ultimate audio experience to any room with the HD-XSPA.

4K Ultra HD video delivers stunning beauty and resolution. But like most new technology, it comes with challenges as well.
For starters, enormous bandwidth (10 Gbit/s) is required to deliver 4K video. This places unprecedented demands on distribution infrastructure. So, how can you ensure flawless implementation for your clients? By knowing how to design 4K distribution systems that address these five challenges:
- Mismatched resolutions
- New frame rate considerations
- Signal integrity issues
- New cable length restrictions
- Source/display compatibility
Manufacturers of 4K sources and displays must take a holistic approach to testing their products to ensure that they are up to
the challenges of an integrated 4K system, liberating system designers and integrators from having to take on this daunting
4K technology overview
The term â€œ4Kâ€ is used generally to refer to video signals with a horizontal resolution on the order of 4,000 pixels. Previous generations
of video resolutions were described by the vertical resolution (e.g., 1080p refers to a signal with 1080 vertical lines). Had the naming
convention for SD and HD been used, 4K video might instead be referred to as â€œ2160pâ€.
There are also an increasing number of â€œtweenerâ€ devices that fall between 1080p and 4K resolution. Even if a given system is not
being designed for 4K content, hardware designed for 2K signals will not carry these higher resolutions
Challenge #1: Mismatched resolutions
720p, 1080i, and 1080p video all share the same aspect ratio â€“ 1.78:1 (16:9). Since essentially all sources and displays have used
this aspect ratio, weâ€™ve seen an era of relative simplicity. Thereâ€™s been no need to make accommodations for various aspect ratios for a
number of years. With 4K, that all changes because it presents the challenge of managing two different standard resolutions
3840Ã—2160 , commonly referred to as Ultra HD, is precisely four times the resolution of 1080p, resulting from doubling both the
horizontal and vertical pixel count of 1920Ã—1080. Therefore, it has the same aspect ratio as HD â€“ 16:9. Most, but not all, 4K display
devices have a native resolution of 3840Ã—2160.
4096Ã—2160, commonly referred to as 4K DCI, is used in movie production and exhibition in commercial cineplexes. There are some
display devices with a native resolution of 4096Ã—2160, but it is not as common as 3840Ã—2160.
Many 4K cameras and source devices can be set to either of the two resolutions. Veteran AV professionals will recall the SXGA computer resolution of 1280Ã—1024, which had a non-standard aspect ratio of 5:4 when nearly every other signal was 4:3. This led to similar problems â€“ displays and sources had to be carefully matched and correctly configured in order to display all of the information without unwanted cropping or stretching.

THX viewing angle recommendations for home theater screens and HDTVs
How do you calculate the best seat-to-screen distance for a plasma, LCD TV or projection screen? Divide the size of your screen by .84 (screen size is measured diagonally). For example, a 65-inch TV divided by .84 equals a 77-inch viewing distance (6.5 feet).
If your HDTV is going in a living room with limited space, THX recommends the following:
- 35 inch class TV = 3.5-5 feet away
- 40 inch class TV = 4-6 feet away
- 50 inch class TV = 5-7.5 feet away
- 60 inch class TV = 6-9 feet way
It might seem that THX is recommending a very large screen size for your room. But, itâ€™s important to note two things: 1) THX screen size recommendations are based on recreating an immersive cinematic experience, and 2) the biggest complaint among TV buyers is that they wish they had bought a bigger set.
Make sure each seating position in your home theater has a clear site line to the screen. Try not to place the screen too high on the wall â€“ viewers should not have to look up more than 15Â°.

Home Automation systems are a great way to integrate all the various facilities within a home into one cohesive system for convenience, control and comfort.
Home security systems which include Burglar alarm systems, indoor and outdoor cameras and also fire alarm systems which have always been installed as stand alone systems are now frequently being integrated into the home automation systems. Is this a good idea ?
Most security system installers feel that by installing a security system independent of the home automation system makes it secure and immune to problems within the automation system.
This might have been true in earlier systems where all the various sub systems were integrated into one control panel, so that if any component of any part of the system failed, the entire system would breakdown so that, a minor problem in lets say, the HVAC control could have the entire system including the security system down, until it was rectified.
This is not a problem in todays systems.
Even though various sub systems are still integrated into a common control system, todays technology allows the integrator to design the overall system in such a way thatÂ even if a component in any sub system fails, that particular component / assembly will beÂ Â isolated from the rest of the system which will still continue functioning normally.
However, the biggest advantage in integrating the security system into home automation comes in case of alarm events such as break ins or fire.
For example, in case of a fire alarm, the system can be programmed such that the HVAC is shut off immediately, alarm alerts can be sent to pre programmed numbers or contacts, hallway lights can be programmed to come on so that they will light the way for family members to proceed to safer locations, electronic door locks can be programmed to open, electrical devices can be turned off etc.
In case of a break in, for example, specific cameras can be programmed to start recording continuously, alerts can be sent to pre programmed individuals or numbers, sirens and voice announcements can be triggered, lights both indoor and outdoor can be made to come on etc. compelling the intruders to leave.
All these features not only add to the safety and security of the family members, but brings a sense of comfort and control and minimises losses due to damage.
Further, automation systems today are designed to work with diverse systems with universally accepted communication standards, so that the inclusion of security systems within an automation system not only makes design sense but also ensures that the system integrator can use the most appropriate components in building the entire system including the security to have a complete automation system that meets all the present and future needs of the home owner.
