Crestron will be shipping the DigitalMedia NVX Series, the latest addition to Crestron’s extensive family of DigitalMedia products, from early May. 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 network secure.”

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 1Gb copper or fiber 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 1Gb 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.

The 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 fiber 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.”
