The banner above Crestron's ISE 2017 booth says "The Only 4K60 4:4:4 HDR Solution." And it's not kidding around.

Crestron's next-gen DigitalMedia NVX Series makes it possible to transmit 4K60 4:4:4 HDR video over standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet, with no latency – an industry first. 

The DM NVX Series is designed to be an "infinitely scalable network AV solution, from a simple point-to-point setup, to thousands of endpoints, and requires only DM NVX Encoders/Decoders," according to the company's release. 

“DM NVX Series takes network AV to the next level, on the platform industry pros know and trust,” says Steve Samson, executive director, business development at Crestron. “Unlike other network AV products, there’s no need for expensive custom 10 Gigabit infrastructure.”

Intelligent software in the DM NVX Series Encoder/Decoder boxes and cards makes it simple to configure, deploy, and manage entire systems from the web.

More from Crestron:

Infinitely Scalable

DM NVX Series is an infinitely scalable high-performance software-defined matrix that provides the ability to share 4K60 4:4:4 HDR HDCP 2.2 compliant content anywhere over a dedicated 1Gb network with no latency. Additionally, it offers the flexibility to be combined with existing Crestron HDBaseT® connectivity and network AV products to deliver content to displays, laptops, tablets, and phones anywhere.

DM NVX devices

DM NVX Series is comprised of DM NVX Encoder/Decoder Boxes (DM-NVX-350, DM-NVX-351), DM NVX Encoder/Decoder Cards (DM-NVX-350C, DM-NVX-351C), and the DM NVX Card Chassis (DM-CI8). DM NVX Encoders/Decoders provide auto-switching and support Ethernet natively, as well as fiber, with optional SPF modules.

Easy to configure, deploy, and manage

Intelligent software residing in the DM NVX Series Encoder/Decoder boxes and cards makes it simple to configure, deploy, and manage entire systems from the web. Integrators simply choose sources and displays, and set bandwidth and latency to meet the needs of the application and infrastructure.

“Only DM offers the ability to deliver ‘hybrid’ network AV solutions. Whatever your application and infrastructure needs – point-to-point via HDBaseT or fiber, streaming over an existing data network, or, now, a dedicated standard 1Gb network that delivers the highest image quality and unlimited scalability – DM brings it all together on a single easy-to-manage platform,” adds Samson.

Will this cover all of the specs for hdmi 2.1 and the increased bandwidth? Will it allow mixing and matching of uhd and non-uhd displays with the same content as JAP does?

This is huge. We have thousands of projects out there that can be instantly retrofitted with this system. So awesome to have new gear and standards deploy with existing, property-wide infrastructure. A big win for Crestron and it’s dealers.

30ms is not perceptible by human beings.  I will take 30ms as “no latency”.  If you are worried about 30ms you are splitting hairs…and are probably an engineer by trade smile

Interesting how they claim “no latency” (which is not possible) then their spec sheet reads “latency of 30ms at 60 fps”.
