Harman’s AMX announced that all models of Enova DGX digital media switchers are now equipped with the new NetLinx NX Series central control processor. Enova DGX models now have the fast processing power, security features and scalability of the new NX Series, with no change in pricing.
DGX models (DGX 8, 16, and 32) incorporating the new NX control processors began shipping this month, while NX Series controllers have been shipping in the Enova DGX 64 chassis since its release in April 2014.
The new DGX models come with a long list of immediate enhancements, including a high performance architecture that includes a 1600 MIPS processor that can manage the most complex and expansive applications. And with the NX Series under the hood, the Enova DGX supports wired 802.1x for enhanced security authentication and IPv6 for the most modern IP addressing.
Migrating to the new DGX models is simple, as they are fully compatible with code developed for the previous AMX NI Series control processors. Should they wish, existing DGX customers will have the opportunity to upgrade their current DGX switchers with NI Series controllers to the new processor by purchasing a CPU Replacement Kit. Concurrent with this upgrade, AMX is implementing a simplified model numbering scheme for the DGX family to streamline the ordering process.
The Enova DGX functions as a centerpiece of a complete integrated solution that manages and distributes analog and digital audio and video, including HDMI/HDCP, control and Ethernet. A comprehensive set of Enova DGX hot swappable boards can be used in conjunction with DXLink transmitters and receivers to provide an end-to-end distribution system over twisted pair cable or fiber.
