Crestron DM NVX AV-Over-IP Series: Why is it the Future in AV Integrations?


You have a talented team bubbling with ground-breaking ideas that would take your company to the next level. Imagine if these ideas were miscommunicated or worse yet, not communicated at all! A classic example? Once a market leader in phones, struggled to keep up with the changing landscape purely because of their inability to communicate clear ideas and bring new phones into the market.

In the current office landscape, with COVID-19 still on its last legs and the growing remote work culture, powerful AV integration has become a necessity. But with everything turning digital, AV integrations also face four major challenges today:

  • Security protocols hinder signals from being routed to allow optimal communication
  • Lack of capable infrastructure
  • Limited wireless network capacity
  • Lack of network bandwidth sufficient enough to support data, intensive audio and video signals without data loss

In short, it routes, distributes, and manages all your video, audio, USB, and device control signals without any latency. No matter the industry, no matter the type of content, there is no challenge that the Crestron DM NVX series cannot take on, in offices across the world.

Let us unearth the wonder that is Crestron DM NVX and why it is touted to be the future of AV integrations

Single Wire, Multiple Content Distribution:

The innovative multi-layered technology ensures that all the content you want to send across is routed through a single wire, enabling better flexibility and greater efficiency. In addition to that, the Crestron DM NVX is also designed in line with the standard networking protocols, making it easy to set up and use anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

Flexible Bit-rate Options Solutions

All the equipment under the DM NVX ecosystem allows an adjustment to the bit-rate basis the resolution of the source being routed. This makes it simpler for system designers to devise solutions that are guaranteed to work while utilizing the network resources in a more efficient fashion. This means it does not always use 4K60 4:4:4 or HDR when not required, thus limiting the resources and the bandwidth required.


US Department of Defence Recognised Security Standards

It would be an understatement to say that the Crestron DM NVX Series is the pinnacle in terms of security. It is the only AV-Over-IP solution in the world to receive the highest level of security certification from the US Department of Defence. To breakdown the layers of security, the Crestron DM NVX series is equipped with:

  • AES encryption technology to ensure top-notch security for audio and video transmission
  • 802.1x Authentication to make sure that every device on the network is explicitly authorized
  • Active Directory for Centralized Credential Management to ensure that only authorized users gain access, even as administrators join or leave the organization
  • PKI Authentication to verify specific devices and to enable secure key exchanges

So, it is safe to say that if your content is on Crestron DM NVX, it is not just safe, it is secure by the standards of the US Department of Defence.

World’s First Interoperability Integration

Crestron DM NVX is the only solution in the market that unifies HD BaseT and AV-Over-IP which simplifies the deployment of 1 gang-wall plate solution and links traditional AV systems with AVover-IP. The other unique features include:

  • Native integration of Crestron DMPS, DM, and DM Lite systems with DM NVX
  • 4K60 4:4:4 support when paired with a DM TX-4KZ-100-C-1G
  • 4K60 4:2:0 when paired with an HD-TX-101-C-1G-E
  • Native support for audio-over-IP to integrate with DM NVX and other third-party systems.

So, it is safe to say that if your content is on Crestron DM NVX, it is not just safe, it is secure by the standards of the US Department of Defence.


Perfecting the Art of Audio Video Integration:

  • Delivers lossless transport of 7.1 surround sound across the network along with 2-channel stereo audio
  • XiO cloud compatibility: Connects to XiO Cloud IoT management tool for hassle-free deployment and management of devices through a remote web dashboard
  • Dante Audio Distribution paves way for ultimate flexibility in distributing audio throughout the network.
  • AES 67 standard for audio to provide interoperability with many third-party solutions such as Shure, QLAN, etc.
  • Layer 3 Compatibility to transport data to different sub-networks
