        DM-NVX-E30C

        DigitalMedia™ 4K60 4:4:4 HDR Network AV Encoder Card

        A reliable, high-performance AV over IP encoder that transports 4K60 4:4:4 video over standard Gigabit Ethernet with no perceptible latency or loss of quality. Occupies a rack-mountable card frame. Supports HDR10 and HDCP 2.2. Provides a secure, scalable 4K signal routing solution for enterprise and campus-wide content distribution applications. 

        DM NVX™ technology transports ultra high-definition 4K60 4:4:4 video over standard Gigabit Ethernet with no perceptible latency or loss of quality. Using standard network switches and CAT5e UTP wiring, DM NVX technology delivers a rock-solid, high-performance virtual matrix routing solution that is both economically advantageous and infinitely scalable for any enterprise or campus-wide 4K content distribution application. Support for HDR10 and HDCP 2.2 ensures the ultimate in picture quality and compatibility for all of today’s varied media sources.[1,2]

        The Crestron® DM-NVX-E30C is an AV over IP encoder that occupies one slot of a DMF-CI-8 card chassis. The card is designed to function as a transmitter in a high-density rack-mount installation. Featuring simple, secure web-based control and management, an HDMI® input, an analog audio output, and copper LAN connectivity, the DM-NVX-E30C offers a low-cost encoder solution for any DigitalMedia network AV installation.[2]

        Note: DM NVX products are compatible with Crestron 3-Series® (or later) control systems only.

        Real-Time 4K60 Video Distribution
        Engineered for demanding conference room and classroom applications, DM NVX technology ensures real-time, full-motion 4K60 video performance for the presentation of multimedia, videoconferencing, and live camera images. Using DM NVX technology, interactive functions such as mousing and game play are fluid and natural.

        A DM NVX system is engineered for rock-solid stability and ultimate reliability. Forward Error Correction ensures that AV data is delivered without interruption regardless of interference around the network cable. Line-synchronized outputs ensure perfect synchronization of content across multiple displays for one-to-many applications such as digital signage or video walls. Variable Multicast TTL (Time To Live) enables traversing multiple network routers for optimal flexibility.

        Pixel Perfect Processing
        A DM NVX system uses Crestron patented pixel perfect processing technology, which enhances natural and computer screen content such as still images and Excel spreadsheets containing fine details. Pixel perfect processing, which replaces the JPEG 2000 encoding and decoding technology previously used in DM NVX devices, decodes and scales simultaneously to achieve imperceptible end-to-end latency of less than 1 frame. The quality and latency of the source is maintained across a standard Gigabit network at any resolution up to 4K60 4:4:4.

        Encoder Functionality
        The DM-NVX-E30C is a basic encoder card that allows a laptop computer, camera, or other media source to be connected via an HDMI cable and then transmitted over the network to one or many decoders.[1] The DM-NVX-E30C is compatible with all DM NVX products and can be used in any network AV design.

        HDMI® Input
        The DM-NVX-E30C includes one HDMI input, which provides a convenient way to connect a source to a DM NVX integrated system.[1]

        7.1 Surround Sound Audio
        A DM NVX system supports the lossless transport of 7.1 surround sound audio signals, including Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Atmos®, DTS HD®, DTS:X®, and uncompressed linear PCM.

        Analog Audio Output
        The analog audio output provides a stereo line-level signal to feed a local sound system or sound bar. The output volume is adjustable via a control system or web browser.[3]

        Copper LAN Connectivity
        The DM-NVX-E30C includes one RJ45 1000Base-T LAN port. For complete network requirements and guidelines, refer to the DM NVX Application Design Guide and DM NVX System Design Guide, Doc. 7977, both available at https://www.crestron.com/nvx.

        Enterprise-Grade Security
        A secure AV network ensures its own reliability by protecting the integrity of the content being delivered and the privacy of the personnel accessing it. Every device on the network must be secure to protect against malicious intrusions from both inside and outside of the LAN. Employing advanced security features and protocols such as 802.1x authentication, Active Directory® credential management, AES-128 content encryption, PKI authentication, TLS, SSH, and HTTPS, a DM NVX system delivers a true enterprise-grade network AV solution engineered to fulfill the demanding IT policies of corporate, university, medical, military, and governmental clients.

        CEC Device Control
        The DM-NVX-E30C provides a gateway for controlling devices through the HDMI connections by harnessing the CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) signal embedded in HDMI technology. Under the management of a control system, the DM-NVX-E30C enables control of display devices and other equipment via CEC, potentially eliminating the need for any dedicated serial cables or IR emitters. [4]

        Web-Based Setup
        Setup of the DM-NVX-E30C is accomplished using a computer web browser. Full control and monitoring of the device is enabled through integration with a Crestron control system (3-Series or later) or the DM NVX Director™ virtual switching appliance.

        DM NVX Director Option
        For small to moderate sized applications, a network of DM NVX endpoints can be configured and controlled using a Crestron control system. For larger enterprise and campus-wide signal routing applications, adding the DM NVX Director (DM-NVX-DIR-80, DM-NVX-DIR-160, or DM-NVX-DIR-ENT) virtual switching appliance enhances and streamlines the entire configuration and control process by providing a central point of management, and by enabling the creation of multiple virtual matrix switchers, all through one easy-to-use web-based portal.

        XiO Cloud™ Provisioning and Management
        The Crestron XiO Cloud™ service is the unifying cloud-based platform for remote provisioning, monitoring, and management of 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 a subscription-based service offering an adaptable SaaS (Software as a Service) solution with graduated levels of functionality and unlimited scalability.

        1. 4K60 4:4:4 performance and HDR support require the use of HDMI cables and couplers with a minimum TMDS bandwidth of 18 Gbps. If 4K60 4:2:0 or 4K30 4:4:4 performance is acceptable, cables and couplers with a minimum bandwidth of 10.2 Gbps may be used. Please be aware that bandwidth loss is cumulative, so performance may be reduced when inserting multiple cables and couplers inline.
        2. The minimum cable required for DM NVX over 1000Base-T Ethernet (copper) is unshielded CAT5e. The LAN port on the DM-NVX-E30C is for connection to an Ethernet network or device; it cannot be connected to the “DM” port of other Crestron devices.
        3. The analog audio output is functional only when the DM-NVX-E30C is receiving a 2-channel stereo input signal.
        4. Device control via CEC or Ethernet requires integration with a Crestron 3-Series (or later) control system.
        5. The minimum bitrate for 4K60 video is 350 Mbps. Bitrate below 350 Mbps may display a black screen.
        6. 3D formats are not supported.
        7. HDMI connections require an appropriate adapter or interface cable to accommodate a DVI or Dual-Mode DisplayPort signal. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables are available separately.
