        DM-XIO-DIR-160

        DigitalMedia™ DM XiO Director – Virtual Switching Appliance for 160 Endpoints

        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.

        The DM-XIO-DIR-160 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-XIO-DIR-160 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-XIO-DIR-160 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-XIO-DIR-160 supports a total of 160 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 switchers 2, 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-XIO-DIR-160automatically 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-XIO-DIR-160 effectively eliminates the need for physical switchers in every room, replacing them with the virtual equivalent running on the AV network.

        Note: The DM-XIO​-DIR-160 supports a maximum of 20 domains. For larger systems, use multiple units or use model DM-XIO-DIR-ENT, which supports 240 domains and includes additional “enterprise” features. Refer to the DM-XIO-DIR-ENT spec sheet for more information.

        Easy Web-Based Setup and Control
        The DM-XIO-DIR-160 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 box 2 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.

        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.
