The certified M4300 switches are preconfigured and are stated to require no other setup to work with Crestron DM NVX encoders and decoders, intended to require less time spent configuring the switch and more time to focus on the other parts of the installation.
“The certification of our robust M4300 switches by such a leader in this industry is a fantastic validation of the work NETGEAR is doing in the Pro AV market,” says Laurent Masia, director of product line management for Managed Switches. “Our customers have been asking for this Crestron DM NVX certification and we are very happy to officially be a part of such a great solution.”
Bob Bavolacco, Crestron director of technology partnerships, adds, “Crestron solutions and the 3rd party devices that work with them always go through rigorous testing to ensure they are 100 percent compatible, integrated solutions that meet Crestron’s strict policy for quality and end-user deployment requirements. The certification of NETGEAR’S M4300 is no exception to this, and benefits the integrator by providing a seamless, compatible switching solution that is 100 percent compatible with Crestron’s DM NVX endpoints.”
M4300 series offer a variety of models to fit port count and connection type requirements. They can also be stacked allowing for future expansion needs. NETGEAR IGMP Plus is designed to ensure easier multicasting with Zero Touch network configuration out of the box without flooding a network. Other features include PoE+, IGMPv3, IGMP snooping, IGMP Fast-leave, and a non-blocking backplane designed to ensure proper multicasting of any type of AV over IP protocol.
