Announcing the Enova DGX 8x8 Intelligent Switch

Announced by AMX at ISE 2013 the Enova DGX8! This is the answer to those smaller projects that require a digital media solution. This chassis provides all of the features you have come to expect. Utilizing AMX's InstaGate Pro technology the chassis will allow for fast switching of HDMI sources and displays. Read more below direct from AMX.

DGX8 Overview:

The Enova DGX 8 Enclosure is a Digital Media Switcher that includes an integrated NetLinx Controller, redundant power supplies and can be populated with Enova DGX video input and output boards in addition to optional audio insert/extract boards. There are four connections per video board, and each enclosure holds two video input boards and two video output boards for a maximum matrix of 8x8.

The Enova DGX 8 is far beyond a modular media switcher with built-in controller - it functions as the centerpiece of a complete integrated solution that manages and distributes analog and digital audio and video including HDMI/HDCP, control and Ethernet. Easily integrate HDCP into system designs and enjoy hassle-free plug-and-play operation. No tools, no delays and no key constraints – it just works with AMX's exclusive InstaGate Pro® Technology. Built for today's and tomorrow's needs, a comprehensive set of Enova DGX hot swappable boards can be used in conjunction with DXLink and DGX Transmitters and Receivers to provide an end-to-end distribution system over twisted pair cable or fiber*. An integrated NetLinx Controller and embedded Ethernet switch enables management of the entire solution including source equipment and display devices located throughout the environment – all from a single point of control.

In addition to eliminating HDCP delays, InstaGate Pro allows traditionally key limited sources to be switched freely to all connected HDCP compliant displays – eliminating HDCP key limitations that plague large applications. Built-in SmartScale® Technology on every output provides video that is perfectly scaled for each connected display, eliminating the integration challenges that can occur when sources and displays have different supported resolutions - making it easy to specify, easy to install and easy to use. With the powerful combination of analog-to-digital signal conversion, video scaling and high speed digital switching the system delivers perfect video every time – regardless of signal type.

As part of a complete distribution system, easily send analog or digital audio and video including HDMI with HDCP signals, plus control and power up to 100 meters over one standard twisted pair cable to and from the Enova DGX using the DXLink Transmitters/Receivers.

*Fiber input and output boards provide support for non-HDCP signals only
