Reflecting the growing interest in AV over IP, Netgear has announced that its M4300 series switches are now officially certified for Crestron DM NVX systems, with no configuration file required.

Both the M4300, and new M4500 series switches, work out of the box for most AV over IP installations, and Crestron DM NVX endpoints as well. As the certified M4300 switches are preconfigured, they require no other setup to work with Crestron DM NVX encoders and decoders. A significant time saving for integrators.

The M4300 series switches are engineered for AV over IP installations, and come in a variety of models to fit port count and connection type requirements. They can also be stacked allowing for future expansion needs.

Netgear IGMP Plus supports multicasting with Zero Touch network configuration out of the box. Other features including PoE+, IGMPv3, IGMP snooping, IGMP Fast-leave, and a non-blocking backplane to ensure proper multicasting of any type of AV over IP protocol.

“The certification of our robust M4300 switches by such a leader in this industry is a fantastic validation of the work Netgear is doing in the Pro AV market,” says Laurent Masia, Director of Product Line Management for Managed Switches. “Our customers have been asking for this Crestron DM NVX certification and we are very happy to officially be a part of such a great solution.”

Typical applications include conference rooms, digital signage, education and high-end residential.

“Crestron solutions and the 3rd party devices that work with them always go through rigorous testing to ensure they are 100 per cent compatible, integrated solutions that meet Crestron’s strict policy for quality and end-user deployment requirements,” notes Bob Bavolacco, Crestron’s Director of Technology Partnerships. “The certification of Netgear’s M4300 is no exception to this, and benefits the integrator by providing a seamless, compatible switching solution that is 100 per cent compatible with Crestron’s DM NVX endpoints.”
