AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced the immediate availability of its DXLink™ Multi-Format Transmitters. Developed for use with the Enova® DGX Digital Media Switchers and Enova DVX All-In-One Presentation Switchers, the transmitters add the ability to extend the reach of not only HDMI but now analog A/V sources, as well as control, Ethernet and power carrying the signals up to 100 meters over one twisted pair cable. Both the DXLink Multi-Format Transmitter Module and Wallplate designs are currently shipping.

There is a growing interest in network-centric A/V solutions. DXLink Multi-Format Transmitters provide a comfortable transition between traditional and network-centric A/V by providing full support for distributing traditional A/V formats but utilizing UTP cabling while simultaneously distributing control and IP data over the very same cable. They take installation flexibility even further by incorporating a 2x1 switcher design, a feat much appreciated by AMX integrators. As a 2x1, one analog input and one digital input are provided, giving the user the ability to remotely select from either source. This includes the capability to insert digital or analog audio into either of the actively chosen video sources.
