Crestron has added features to its DM NVX 1Gbps AV-over-IP platform at ISE 2020, including support for the AES67 and a new switching system that Crestron says is glitchless. The new functionality will be available for existing DM NVX products via a free firmware upgrade. With support for AES67, DM NVX endpoints 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. New ultra-fast, no-glitch switching delivers virtually imperceptible switching from one network stream to another.
Also debuting at ISE 2020 is the NX2 Series, a range of DM NVX USB-over-IP endpoint extenders in a wall plate form factor. They provide seamless routing and extension of USB 2.0 signals across the network between NX2 devices and are completely interoperable with DM NVX products. So, routing USB 2.0 peripherals, such as keyboard, video, mouse, webcams, microphones or mass storage is done over IP. The NX2 Series can be used to create a robust network KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) solution, for example.
DM NVX leverages 802.1x authentication, AES encryption, and Active Directory technology to provide enterprise-grade security at the product level. And with the DM NVX Director network appliance, and Crestron says you can literally configure and deploy a thousand DM NVX endpoints in the same time it used to take to configure just one AV device the traditional way.
