AMX have announced new Enova DGX 16 and 32 digital matrix switchers together with a new range of DXLink HDMI transmitters and receivers. AMX say they’ve “solved the HDCP nightmare for installers”, and the systems will transmit HDMI with HDCP signals, plus control, Ethernet and power up to 100 metres over one twisted pair cable. Check out the viceo after the jump.
“New Enova DGX 16 and 32 Deliver End-to-End Distribution of HDMI Signals with Full HDCP, without Interruption or Key Constraints and with all the Simplicity of Analogue, using InstaGate Pro Technology
AMX, the leading provider of unified control and automation solutions has announced the HDCP-solving Enova DGX 16 and Enova DGX 32 Digital Generation Matrix Switchers, together with a new range of DXLink HDMI Transmitters and Receivers, for simplified distance transport of HDMI with HDCP signals.
The Enova DGX 16 and 32 systems extend the boundaries of modular matrix switchers with an integrated NetLinx® Controller and embedded Ethernet switch, so users can manage, monitor and control the entire solution, including the connected source and display devices located throughout a building or home, all from a single point of control. With the powerful combination of analogue-to-digital signal conversion, video scaling and high speed digital switching; this hybrid system delivers perfect video every time – regardless of signal type.
“While competitors go to great lengths creating work-around tools to mask HDMI-HDCP problems – AMX has simply eliminated the problem,” explained AMX Chief Technology Officer Robert Noble. “The Enova DGX and DXLink Transmitters and Receivers allow our dealers to be more profitable as they will spend significantly less time with HDCP integration issues.”
Installers can now easily integrate HDCP into system designs and enjoy hassle free plug-and-play operation. No tools, no delays, and no key constraints – it just works with the exclusive InstaGate Pro™ Technology from AMX.
In addition to eliminating HDCP delays, InstaGate Pro allows sources with key limitations to be switched freely to connected HDCP compliant displays, eliminating HDCP key limitations that plague large applications. And, with built-in SmartScale™ Technology on every output, video is perfectly scaled, automatically, for each connected display; preventing inferior video quality which occurs when sources and displays have different supported resolutions.
The Enova DGX 16 and 32 offer a comprehensive set of hot swappable boards that can be used in conjunction with DXLink Transmitters and Receivers to provide an end-to-end distribution system sending analogue, digital – including HDMI with HDCP signals, plus control, Ethernet and power up to 100 metres over one twisted pair cable.
“We’ve solved the HDCP nightmare for installers,” said Kevin Morrison, AMX Europe Managing Director. “Specifying the new Enova DGX Digital Media Switcher in conjunction with DXLink Transmitters and Receivers creates a truly plug-and-pay experience. InstaGate Pro and SmartScale technologies work together to distribute HDMI without key-constraint hassles, while scaling it for each display independently. And, all of this happens without manual setup.”
