        DM-NVX-DIR-ENT

        DM NVX Director™ Virtual Switching Appliance, Enterprise Version

        Facilitates configuration, control, and management of a large-scale AV network using DM NVX™ encoders  and decoders. Provides the virtual equivalent of one or more hardware-based DM matrix switchers. Supports copper and fiber LAN connectivity. Includes hot-swappable redundant power supplies.

        The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT is an enterprise-grade network appliance that facilitates configuration, control, and management of a large-scale AV network. Using DM NVX encoders and decoders, Crestron® offers the industry’s most versatile and scalable solution for distributing 4K60 4:4:4 HDR video over an IP network. The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT provides a means for managing large networks of DM NVX devices, routing AV signals, and simplifying integration with one or more Crestron control systems.1

        Virtual DM® Switcher
        The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT virtually emulates the functionality of a traditional hardware-based DigitalMedia™ matrix switcher, routing high-quality 4K streaming AV signals throughout a room, building, or campus. The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT supports a total of 1000 endpoint devices consisting of DM NVX encoders and decoders. Multiple units can be deployed, with the ability to route signals between units just like hardware switchers2, easily handling even the largest corporate enterprise, university, governmental, military, medical, transportation, sports, entertainment, hospitality, gaming, or retail application.

        Simple, Flexible Configuration
        System configuration could not be simpler. The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT automatically discovers each DM NVX endpoint on the network, and allows each endpoint to be assigned as a logical input or output within a “domain.” A domain is a logical grouping of endpoints that operate together as a single switching entity, allowing individual rooms and other subsystems to be arranged and controlled independently. It’s like having multiple independent matrix switchers in a single rack space. The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT effectively eliminates the need for physical switchers in every room, replacing them with the virtual equivalent running on the AV network.

        Note: The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT supports a maximum of 240 domains. For larger systems, use multiple units.

        Easy Web-Based Setup and Control
        The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT provides an intuitive web-based user interface to facilitate system configuration, signal routing, and comprehensive diagnostics of the complete AV network. Each domain and endpoint, as well as the inputs and outputs on each endpoint, can be designated with a user-friendly name. Navigating the entire system is easy using the search box2 to quickly find domains, endpoints, inputs, and outputs by name or address. A system overview screen is also provided, showing the video and audio signal status for every input and output in a graphical layout that’s easy to view and navigate.

        Copper or Fiber LAN Connectivity
        The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT includes six 1000Base-T RJ45 LAN ports and six 10GBase-X SFP+ LAN ports. Connection to a Gigabit or 10 Gigabit fiber optic network is facilitated by inserting an appropriate SFP or SFP+ transceiver module (Crestron SFP-1G or SFP-10G series, sold separately) into an SFP+ port. A selection of modules is offered to accommodate various multimode and single-mode fiber types.

        Note: Ports 7 and 8 are strictly 10 Gb and only compatible with SFP-10G SFP+ transceivers.

        Redundant Power Supplies
        Onboard dual redundant power supplies provide enhanced reliability for demanding applications. In the unlikely event of an individual power supply fault, the DM-NVX-DIR-ENT will continue to operate unhindered on only one functioning power supply. A modular, hot-swappable design allows either power supply to be replaced in seconds from the rear panel without powering down or rebooting the system. The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT ships complete with both power supply modules installed.

        Crestron XiO Cloud™ Provisioning and Management
        The Crestron XiO Cloud service is a unifying cloud-based platform for remotely provisioning, monitoring, and managing Crestron devices across an enterprise or an entire client base. The XiO Cloud™ service enables installers and IT managers to deploy and manage thousands of devices in the amount of time it would ordinarily take to manage just one. It provides a zero-touch solution that allows complete configuration of device settings without any hardware in hand. Simply connect each device on site and let the XiO Cloud service push out the settings, licenses, drivers, and firmware updates automatically and securely for a quick and painless, ready-to-use deployment.

        Ongoing XiO Cloud service facilitates daily management and monitoring of every device through a single dashboard with comprehensive reporting and logging, live status viewing and alerts, performance metrics and analytics, scheduled actions and updates, and more. As requirements grow and evolve, new features and functionality can be added easily to one or many devices at any time without ever going on site. The XiO Cloud service is subscription based, offering an adaptable SaaS (Software as a Service) solution with graduated levels of functionality and unlimited scalability.
