Crestron has launched its next-generation DigitalMedia NVX Series, which makes it possible to transmit 4K60 4:4:4 HDR video over standard 1 gigabit Ethernet, with no latency. The DM NVX Series provides an infinitely scalable network AV solution, from a simple point-to-point setup, to thousands of endpoints, and requires only DM NVX Encoders/Decoders. Built-in intelligent software improves configuration, commission, and control from the web.
“DM NVX Series takes network AV to the next level, on the platform industry pros know and trust,” said Steve Samson, executive director, business development at Crestron. “Unlike other network AV products, there’s no need for expensive custom 10 Gigabit infrastructure.”
DM NVX Series is an infinitely scalable high-performance software-defined matrix that provides the ability to share 4K60 4:4:4 HDR HDCP 2.2-compliant content anywhere over a dedicated 1Gb network with no latency. Additionally, it offers the flexibility to be combined with existing Crestron HDBaseT connectivity and network AV products to deliver content to displays, laptops, tablets, and phones anywhere.
DM NVX Series is comprised of DM NVX Encoder/Decoder Boxes (DM-NVX-350, DM-NVX-351), DM NVX Encoder/Decoder Cards (DM-NVX-350C, DM-NVX-351C), and the DM NVX Card Chassis (DM-CI8). DM NVX Encoders/Decoders provide auto-switching and support Ethernet natively, as well as fiber, with optional SPF modules.
Intelligent software residing in the DM NVX Series Encoder/Decoder boxes and cards simplifies configuration, deployment, and management of entire systems from the web. Integrators choose sources and displays, and set bandwidth and latency to meet the needs of the application and infrastructure.
“Only DM offers the ability to deliver ‘hybrid’ network AV solutions,” Samson said. “Whatever your application and infrastructure needs—point-to-point via HDBaseT or fiber, streaming over an existing data network, or, now, a dedicated standard 1Gb network that delivers the highest image quality and unlimited scalability—DM brings it all together on a single easy-to-manage platform.”
