Crestron, a global leader in control and automation technology, is now shipping the
DigitalMedia NVX Series, the latest ground breaking addition to Crestron’s extensive
family of DigitalMedia products. The DigitalMedia NVX Series makes it possible to
transmit stunning 4K60 4:4:4 HDR video over standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet, with no
latency. DigitalMedia 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 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, 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
DM NVX Series leverages the most advanced network security technologies. 802.1X
authentication ensures that every DM NVX device is explicitly authorized, 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. Crestron stands alone in its commitment to network
security, and the DM NVX Series sets the standard.
DM NVX Series is an infinitely scalable software-defined matrix that provides the
ability to share 4K60 4:4:4 HDR content securely anywhere over a dedicated 1 GB
copper or fibre network, with no latency or limits. Other network AV products that
rely on 10 Gigabit Ethernet don’t scale beyond a single switch. By contrast, Crestron
DM NVX Series leverages standard enterprise-grade 1 GB network infrastructure,
which is 10 times more scalable at a fraction of the cost.
Typical network AV systems encode/decode and then scale sequentially, which
results in additional latency. Crestron’s patent pending technology simultaneously
encodes/decodes and scales, eliminating any latency incurred in transmitting video
over the network.
Intelligent software residing in the DM NVX Series Encoder/Decoder boxes and
cards makes it simple to configure, deploy, and manage entire systems from the
web. Integrators simply choose sources and displays, and easily adjust settings to
meet the needs of the application and infrastructure.
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 fibre with optional SPF
modules, all at price similar to competitor’s products that have less capability and
are not secure.
“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.’ adds Samson. “Whatever your application
and infrastructure needs – DM brings it all together.’
