The Crestron 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® encoder and decoder endpoints. The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT virtually emulates the functionality of a traditional hardware-based DM® matrix switcher, routing high-quality 4K streaming AV signals throughout a room, building, or campus.
The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT supports a maximum of 1000 DM NVX endpoints. Multiple DM NVX Director™ network appliances can be deployed to handle corporate enterprise, university, government, military, medical, transportation, sports, entertainment, hospitality, gaming, and retail applications.
Simple and Flexible Configuration
The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT automatically discovers up to 1000 DM NVX endpoints on the network and enables each endpoint to be assigned as a logical input or output within a domain. Up to 240 domains are supported. For larger systems, multiple DM-NVX-DIR-ENT network appliances can be used.
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 diagnostics of the complete AV network. Each domain and endpoint, as well as the inputs and outputs of each endpoint, can be designated with a user-friendly name. Navigating the entire system is easy using the search box 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 is easy to view and navigate.
Video inputs can be routed to video outputs within a single domain. In addition, support of interdomain routing enables video inputs within a domain to be routed to video outputs of one or more other domains. Routing control of AV signals is accomplished by using the web interface or control system programming.
Multicast Address Control
A custom multicast range can optionally be assigned for DM NVX encoder and decoder endpoints within a domain. The custom multicast range is determined by the assignment of a starting multicast address, the number of multicast addresses assigned to each DM NVX endpoint, and the number of DM NVX endpoints assigned to a domain. Multicast address control is accomplished by using the web interface.
Credential Management of DM NVX Endpoints
Username and password credentials can be changed simultaneously for all DM NVX encoder and decoder endpoints within a domain. Alternatively, the username and password can be changed for only particular DM NVX endpoints within a domain. Username and password credential management is accomplished by using the web interface.
Copper or Fiber Ethernet Connectivity
The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT includes six 1000BASE-T RJ-45 ports and six 10GBASE-X SFP+ ports. Four of the 10GBASE-X SFP+ ports are 1000BASE-T compatible. Connection to a 1000BASE-T or 10GBASE-X 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 support 10GBASE-X only and are compatible with SFP-10G SFP+ transceivers only.
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.
Multiple Control System Support
The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT supports Crestron 3-Series® or later control systems. A single control system, referred to as the Global Domain control system, can be assigned to all domains simultaneously. In addition, support of multiple control systems enables the Global Domain control system or another control system, referred to as a Domain control system, to be assigned to each domain on an individual basis. The Domain control system that is assigned on an individual basis must be different for each domain. Assignment of multiple control systems is accomplished by using the web interface or control system programming.
XiO Cloud® Service Support
The DM-NVX-DIR-ENT is compatible with the Crestron XiO Cloud service, which is an IoT (Internet of Things) platform for remotely provisioning, monitoring, and managing Crestron devices across an enterprise or an entire client base. Built on the Microsoft® Azure® software platform and using industry-leading Azure IoT Hub technology, the XiO Cloud service enables installers and IT managers to deploy and manage thousands of devices in the amount of time it previously took to manage a single device. Unlike other virtual machine-based cloud solutions, Azure services provide unlimited scalability to suit the ever-growing needs of an enterprise.
