Posted on Thursday, June 16, 2011
New Enova® DGX 16 and 32 Delivers End-to-End Distribution of HDMI Signals with Full HDCP, with the Simplicity of Analog, without Interruption or Key Constraints Using InstaGate Pro™ Technology
Orlando, Fla - June 16, 2011 - AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced the HDCP-solving Enova DGX 16 and Enova DGX 32 Digital Generation Matrix Switchers. In relation, AMX also announced the new DXLink HDMI Transmitters and Receivers for simplified distance transport of HDMI w/ HDCP signals. AMX will be demonstrating the Enova DGX, and DXLink HDMI Transmitters and Receivers in booth 2525 at InfoComm 2011, being held June 15 - 17 in Orlando, Fla.
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 the building, all from a single point of control. With the powerful combination of analog-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 analog, digital – including HDMI with HDCP signals, plus control, Ethernet and power up to 100 meters over one twisted pair cable.
"We've solved the HDCP nightmare for installers," said Paul Hand, AMX Product Manager. "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."
