CEO Signs Over First Units Called to Duty to Solve New Era AV Obstacles

RICHARDSON, Texas – January 23, 2012 – AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced its first Enova® DGX 16 and Enova DGX 32 Digital Media Switchers were delivered by Rashid Skaf, AMX President and CEO. With industry-first technologies like SmartScale®, InstaGate Pro™ and built-in NetLinx® Controllers, DGX Switchers are proving the model hub for AV's increasingly network-centric installations.
Five of the DGX units will be installed in a classified military facility in San Antonio, Texas. Details about the installation cannot be disclosed due to security restrictions. The installation will consist of a mix of Enova DGX 16 and 32 Digital Media Switchers.
"We chose the Enova DGX for this client because they will be pushing high resolution images to remote locations throughout the facility and conducting video conferences requiring high resolution image support," said John Sublett. "It was important that the DGX be simple to manage. Our clients are warfighters, not AV technicians. They needed the ability to plug-and-play any HDMI/HDCP supported source and know it would immediately show on any display regardless of size or supported resolution."
Intuitively resolving digital installation snags, the Enova DGX features exclusive AMX technologies like SmartScale. Found on every video output, SmartScale eliminates the impasses that can occur when sources and displays have different supported resolutions. It's the only technology that supports any source and display resolution and optimizes the picture on every connected display automatically. Also featured is InstaGate Pro technology. It smartly addresses key constraints and delays posed by HDMI/HDCP, drastically speeding installation time.
The Enova DGX 16 and 32 Switcher enclosures, the DGX Input and Output Boards for HDMI and DVI, plus the Audio Insert / Extract Expansion Boards are currently shipping. Further enhancements to the DGX 16 and 32 are on schedule to deliver in the coming months, including DXLink Input and Output boards and DGX Optical Fiber boards.
