Latest evolution of Crestron DM NVX AV-over-IP technology debuts at ISE
Crestron has unveiled its latest enhancements to the DM NVX AV-over-IP platform at ISE 2020: native support for the AES67 audio-over-IP standard and ultra-fast, no-glitch switching. The functionality will be available for existing DM NVX products with a free firmware upgrade.
With this support, the DM NVX can send breakaway audio from a video source to mixers, DSPs and amplifiers as well as receive signals from mixers, DSPs and microphones that support the AES67 standard.
“We have a steadfast commitment to continuously evolving the DM NVX platform to be the best in every way,” Crestron vice president of marketing Josh Stene says.
“Last year, we brought exclusive Pixel Perfect Processing technology to DM NVX to deliver image quality as good as the source, and over a standard 1GB network – no need for all the expense and disruption of installing a new 10GB network.
“This year, we’ve taken audio support and switching speed to an entirely new level. Even better news; these capabilities will be implemented across the entire product line.”
It’s more than just distribution of flawless 4K60 4:4:4 an HDR video, this latest addition is a complete and infinitely scalable solution and pushes audio, control and USB 2.0 through a single encoder/decoder which significantly reduces system costs and adds flexibility.
The DM NVX leverages 802.1x authentication, AES encryption and Active Directory technology to provide enterprise-grade security at the product level.
Also debuting at ISE 2020 is the NX2 series, a range of USB-over-IP endpoint extenders in a wall plate form factor. It provides seamless routing and extension of USB 2.0 signals across the network between NX2 devices and is completely interoperable with DM NVX products.
It makes routing USB peripherals including keyboard, video, mouse, webcams, microphones or mass storage much easier than previously possible.
