The AMX Enova DGX Series with integrated controller and Ethernet switch manages and distributes analog and digital video and audio signals, including HDCP protected content.

Especially developed for environments with high availability requirements, both the standard built-in redundant power supplies and the individual modules are hot swappable, i.e. modules can be replaced or even expanded during operation. This guarantees maximum availability and minimum restoration time – a feature is of enormous importance in many installations.

Application example: a conference and / or training center, where several rooms are connected through a central device for cost reasons. The individual input and output cards (HDMI , DVI, DXLink twisted pair, DGX Fiber or audio) fit into each of the 4 different Enova DGX- enclosures and can flexibly be used and replaced. Thus, expenses of spare parts storage can be limited to a minimum; end users benefit from massive reductions of operating costs.

The new technology enables an extremely compact design: the housing of the DGX 32 is only 6 rack units (RU) high. Therefore, existing outdated technology can be replaced without major reconstruction effort. In the rack-case, an Enova DGX ensures even better clarity: external PoE-converters and the associated oodles of connection cables are not required anymore due to the twisted pair connection.

The functionality is complemented by SmartScale: instead using a rigid lookup table containing the most common video parameters, the input signals of different sources are converted by real EDID management. For each output, the SmartScale technology automatically reacts (deactivatable per port by the pass-through mode) on the given EDID information, and optimizes the video resolution and parameters for each display. Each source can feed its maximum image quality – only this will allow a true plug-and- play operation. Thus, the Enova technology provides maximum viewing pleasure.

Key features

  • HDMI/HDCP Switching with Simplicity of Analog over Fiber or Twisted Pair – End-to-end distribution of HDMI/HDCP without interruption or key constraints using InstaGate Pro Technology
  • HDCP Compliance Over Fiber – Compatible DXLink Fiber boards transmit uncompressed video, including HDCP protected content, up to 10 Km at 10 Gbps (single mode fiber options transmit 10 Km, multimode 300 m)
  • Fiber Your Way – DXLink Fiber boards are available in single mode or multimode; simplex or duplex to meet the needs of any installation
  • AV and Control over Twisted Pair, Fiber or Both – Send audio, video, bi-directional control and Ethernet over twisted pair or fiber cable, or integrate both into the same system
  • Embedded NetLinx Controller – Allows any connected device to be managed, monitored or controlled
  • Integrated Ethernet Switch – Pass Ethernet through the attached DXLink Twisted Pair or Fiber Transmitters and Receivers
  • Analog to Digital Video Conversion with Scaled Outputs – Converts any source signal to digital and uses SmartScale Technology to automatically output video that is perfectly scaled for each connected display
  • 6 RU Enclosure – Comparatively speaking, that's half the space of the competition
