New DM NVX network AV solution
The manufacturer also has a new DM NVX network- AV solution presented, of course with brand new processor technology. In collaboration with partners such as Intel and intoPIX, Crestron was able to improve image quality – so much better that the difference between DM NVX video and a direct video feed should not be seen. Just like the previous generation of DM NVX, there is no latency and more video formats are supported than by any other manufacturer.
The new DM-NVX-E30 and DM-NVX-D30 can only be encoded or decoded and support hdmi connectivity and analog audio. In addition, all current DM NVX products can benefit from the new processing techniques with a single free firmware update. The new NVX is next to a diffuser of the 4k resolution in sixty frames per second and 4: 4: 4 and hdr video also a driver of audio, control and usb 2.0 by one encode and decoder, so the system costs are significantly reduced
DM NVX uses 802.1x authentication, AES encryption and Active Directory technology to deliver business-class security for the product. And with the DM NVX Director network tool you can configure and deploy a thousand endpoints for the DM NVX in the time it takes to configure one AV device in the conventional way.
