Crestron is now shipping the DigitalMedia NVX Series, the latest addition to Crestron’s DigitalMedia product line. The DigitalMedia NVX Series transmits 4K60 4:4:4 HDR video over standard 1Gb ethernet. DigitalMedia NVX Series provides a scalable network AV solution, from a simple point-to-point setup, to thousands of endpoints, and requires only DM NVX Series encoders/decoders.
“DM NVX Series takes network AV to the next level, on the platform industry pros know and trust,” said Steve Samson, executive director of Business Development at Crestron, “And, thanks to Crestron’s uncompromising approach to network security, only with DM NVX Series are you, your client and the video content on their network secure.”
DM NVX Series leverages 802.1X authentication to ensure that every DM NVX device is explicitly authorized. Additionally, active directory credential management ensures that only authorized administrators gain access, and secure CIP protocol ensures secure connections between DM NVX and Crestron control systems.
DM NVX Series is a highly scalable software-defined matrix that provides the ability to share 4K60 4:4:4 HDR content securely anywhere over a dedicated 1Gb copper or fiber network.
Typical network AV systems encode/decode and then scale sequentially, which results in additional latency. Crestron’s solution simultaneously encodes/decodes and scales, eliminating much of the latency incurred in transmitting video over the network.
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 (DMF-CI8). DM NVX Encoders/Decoders feature built-in USB 2.0 routing; DSP and breakaway audio; HDCP 2.2 support; auto-switching; all-in-one encoding/decoding; and support Ethernet natively, as well as fiber with optional SPF modules.
“Only Crestron DM gives you the ability to deliver field-proven solutions that mix 4K60 HDBaseT, 4K60 Fiber, H.264, and now DM NVX, all together on the ultra-reliable Crestron DigitalMedia platform,” added Samson. “Whatever your application and infrastructure needs—DM brings it all together.”
