AMX Launches Enova DGX Digital Media Switchers to Unprecedented Demand
AMX®, the leading provider of unified control, automation and system-wide switching solutions, has announced the immediate availability of the Enova® DGX 16 and Enova DGX 32 Digital Media Switchers. Ideal for those seeking a future-ready HDMI/HDCP solution that can perfectly scale to any resolution, these highly anticipated modular matrix switchers feature AMX’s exclusive SmartScale® and InstaGate Pro™ technologies, combined with built-in NetLinx® control, to offer a complete, integrated solution for today’s network-centric installations.
Using SmartScale to effectively overcome the challenges that can occur when sources and displays have different supported resolutions, the DGX Digital Media Switchers outsmart competing scaling technologies by independently responding to each display's declared EDID information and scaling video to optimal resolution and parameters without manual setup.
“HDMI/HDCP installations and sub-par scaling options have been a time-consuming nightmare for integrators but finally, with the DGX, a solid, reliable solution is here. All you do is plug in the cables and no matter what source you are sending or what combination of resolutions you are outputting – a simply beautiful, perfectly scaled picture appears on every display, without delay.” Said AMX Product Manager, Paul Hand.
Also eliminating HDMI/HDCP frustrations is AMX’s InstaGate Pro. A feature of every Enova DGX Switcher, InstaGate Pro allows installers to integrate HDCP into system designs with plug-and-play simplicity, without delays or key constraints. “The most common request I heard from our integrators was for a switcher that can distribute HDMI/HDCP without complicated workarounds and costly tools,” said Rashid Skaf, AMX President & CEO. “I went to our engineers and asked for a digital media switcher that would allow an installer to plug in any source and for it to just work. I couldn’t be happier with the end result. The DGX simply delivers.”
Another crucial aspect for integrators is the built-in NetLinx Controller. As the only digital switcher with an embedded controller, installations are simplified and perform in flawless orchestration.
“The Enova DGX line is the first ‘real’ solution to the AV/IT installation challenges integrators are facing today, built on architecture that will endure for tomorrow,” said AMX Europe Managing Director, Kevin Morrison. “The Enova DGX has an embedded Ethernet switch and support for AMX DXLink which allows connected AV devices to be centrally managed over the same cable used to distribute media.”
The initial Enova DGX shipment includes the DGX 16 and 32 Switcher enclosures, the DGX Input and Output Boards for HDMI and DVI, plus the Audio Insert / Extract Expansion Boards. Further enhancements to the DGX 16 and 32 are on schedule to deliver in the coming months, including DXLink input and output boards as well as fibre boards.
