New Fiber Distance Transport Components Significantly Expand Media Distribution Capabilities
AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – February 4, 2014 – Underscoring its commitment to deliver AV solutions for an IT world, at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2014, AMX® demonstrated its new family of DXLink Fiber Transmitters and Receivers and I/O Boards. These IT friendly components are both extremely reliable and scalable to any requirement. They can be used to securely distribute lossless video content (including HDCP) up to 10 kilometers (six miles) away, which can be ideal for multi-facility government and military installations, casinos, hospitals, educational campuses and other sprawling applications.
The list of features that make DXLink Fiber Solutions incredibly competitive reads like a wish list for the previously unattainable perfect distance transport solution: an industry-leading 10 Gbps data rate, field serviceable fiber modules; the security and electrical isolation that make fiber the transport method of choice for many mission-critical secure environments; identical board sets throughout the entire switcher line and your choice of fiber transmitters/receivers and I/O boards available in single mode or multimode – simplex or duplex to meet the needs of any installation. Additionally, standard with every product in the AMX Enova family – integrated SmartScale technology on every output and onboard InstaGate Pro™ technology for addressing key constraints and delays posed by HDMI/HDCP.
The new DXLink Fiber solutions distribute uncompressed video (including HDCP) across an entire campus or multiple facilities (up to 10km/six miles) while maintaining video quality over a secured connection. And just like the previously released DXLink Category Cable solutions, DXLink Fiber Multi-Format Transmitters provide support for both analog and digital video and can perform as a 2x1 pre-switch when both signal formats are present.
