AMX Enova DGX 16 – The new nucleus for audio-visual systems
There is an ever growing variety of uses for video in the AV industry, however many matrix switchers are still unable to handle a large amount of outputs or higher resolutions. AMX’s latest Enova digital media switchers have the capability of managing and distributing both analogue and digital video from a central controller, without losing the quality of a HDMI resolution.
Although a larger Enova DGX 32 is available, the DGX 16 is more than capable in commercial, educational and corporate environments as it allows high quality video to be shared both locally and remotely through various sources. When combined with other AMX products, the Enova can control an entire AV environment including lighting, projectors and displays without causing any interruption to your content. Thanks to the latest EDID (Extended display identification data) technology, the Enova can read which source inputs are being used and its two-way system means you can receive video as well as sending it. The switcher can currently send content up to 100m away from the original location and is currently limited to bundling six cables together, however this product is still updating monthly, so this may be an issue which is later resolved.
If you want a future-proof control system, the DGX 16 is just that – helping to reduce the amount of cabling, without reducing the quality of the video and audio passed through it. AMX have taken several key technologies and combined them to produce a great platform for integrators to build upon.
We have recently installed the Enova DGX 16 for one of our clients. A Design and Integration post is coming soon, so make sure to check that out for more applications of this product.
