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, a DM NVX system delivers a high-performance virtual matrix routing solution 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 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 a DM NVX network AV installation of any size.2
NOTE: DM NVX products are compatible with Crestron 3‑Series® or later control systems.
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. Interactive functions such as mousing and game play are fluid and natural.
A DM NVX system is engineered for stability and ultimate reliability. Forward Error Correction ensures that AV data is delivered without interruption. Line-synchronized outputs ensure perfect synchronization of content across multiple displays for applications such as digital signage. Variable Multicast TTL (Time To Live) enables traversing multiple network routers for optimal flexibility.
Pixel Perfect Processing Technology
A DM NVX system incorporates Pixel Perfect Processing technology, which provides flawless video transport in all applications. The DM-NVX-E30C can encode a video signal to achieve imperceptible end-to-end latency of less than 1 frame. The image quality of the source is maintained across a 1‑Gigabit network at any resolution up to 4K60 4:4:4.
A secure AV network ensures reliability by protecting the integrity and privacy of the content being delivered. Every device on the network must be secure to protect against intrusions. Using 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 demanding IT policies.
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 DM NVX network AV design.
The DM-NVX-E30C includes one HDMI input, which provides a convenient way to connect a source device to a DM NVX integrated system.
Copper LAN Connectivity
The DM‑NVX‑E30C includes one RJ-45 1000BASE‑T LAN port.2 For information about network requirements and guidelines, refer to the DM NVX System Design Guide, Doc. 7977, at www.crestron.com/nvx.
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
7.1 Surround Sound Audio
DM NVX technology supports the lossless transport of 7.1 surround sound audio signals, including Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Atmos®, DTS HD®, DTS:X®, and uncompressed linear PCM.
CEC Device Control
Under the management of a control system, the DM-NVX-E30C can control a source device via CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) over the HDMI connection, potentially eliminating the need for dedicated serial cables or IR emitters.4
Setup of the DM-NVX-E30C is accomplished by using a web browser. Full control and monitoring of the card is enabled through integration with a control system or with a DM NVX Director™ virtual switching appliance.
Compatibility with DM NVX Director Virtual Switching Appliances
For applications that are small to moderate in size, a network of DM NVX endpoints can be configured and controlled with the use of a control system. For larger enterprise and campus-wide signal routing applications, adding a DM NVX Director virtual switching appliance (DM‑XIO‑DIR‑80, DM‑XIO‑DIR‑160, or DM‑XIO‑DIR‑ENT) enhances and streamlines the entire configuration and control process. A DM NVX Director appliance provides a central point of management and enables the creation of multiple virtual matrix switchers through one easy-to-use web-based portal.
Crestron XiO Cloud™ Service Support
The DM‑NVX‑E30C is compatible with the Crestron XiO Cloud service, which is an IoT (Internet of Things) based platform for remotely provisioning, monitoring, and managing Crestron devices across an enterprise or an entire client base. The service enables installers and IT managers to deploy and manage thousands of devices in the amount of time it would ordinarily take to manage a single device.

High-Density Card-Based Solution
The DM-NVX-E30C is designed for installation into a DMF-CI-8 card chassis, which provides a high-density solution for applications requiring multiple encoders and decoders in one equipment rack.
