OVERVIEW
The DXLink Multi-Format Transmitter sends analog and digital audio and video signals including HDMI with HDCP, control, and Ethernet up to 100 meters over one standard twisted pair cable. Use the DXLink Transmitter with the Enova DGX DXLink Twisted Pair Input Boards or compatible Enova DVX All-In-One Presentation Switchers. The DXLink Transmitter can also be used as a point-to-point solution with a DXLink HDMI Receiver. The DXLink Transmitter can be powered from any DXLink power source such as the Enova DGX DXLink Twisted Pair Input Board, Enova DVX-3155HD, DVX-3156HD, PS-POE-AT-TC or PDXL-2. It also includes a local power supply. The transmitter features both a multi-format analog port to support legacy devices and an HDMI port to support newer digital devices.

COMMON APPLICATIONS
The DXLink Multi-Format Transmitter sends analog or digital video, audio and control to a remote display across the room, on the other side of the house or to a classroom down the hall. The transmitter's built-in control ports can be used to control a source and the ICSLan port provides an IP access point.

FEATURES

  • Only One Cable – Send audio and video while passing control, Ethernet, USB signals and power
  • Native NetLinx® Control Everywhere – Control connected source and display devices using the built-in IR and RS-232 ports
  • Send HDMI signals up to 100 meters – Extend the reach of the HDMI signals far beyond the capabilities of typical HDMI cabling
  • Multi-Format Analog Port and HDMI Port – Supports legacy analog signals - RGBHV, Component, S-Video, and Composite, and digital HDMI/HDCP, DisplayPort and DVI signals
  • Standard Twisted Pair Cable – Save time and effort in installation by leveraging cost effective twisted pair cable, see the Cabling for Success with DXLink white paper for more details

  • Power Remotely - Power over DXLink* is carried over one twisted pair cable to simplify installation when used with Enova DGX, Enova DVX, PS-POE-AT-TC or PDXL-2
  • 3D Support - Pass through latest video formats including 3D and Deep Color
  • Surround Sound Support - Pass through high definition surround sound including Dolby Digital, DTS and up to 8-channel L-PCM at 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 96 kHz, 192kHz
  • Ethernet Connectivity - Provides ICSLan Ethernet support at the Transmitter - add Ethernet connectivity to a Touch Panel, plug in a WAP or stream IP audio/video to a Ethernet enabled source device
  • HDCP compliance

* Power must be supplied by one of the following DXLink Power sourcing devices: Enova DGX 8/16/32/64 Digital Media Switcher (with a DXLink Twisted Pair Input Board installed), Compatible Enova DVX All-In-One Presentation Switcher (3155HD, 3156HD or 2155HD), PS-POE-AT-TC High Power PoE Injector or PDXL-2 Power over DXLink Controller. AMX only supports the use of these approved Power over DXLink solutions. Other third party power supplies or non-compatible standard PoE solutions may damage the DXLink equipment.

DEALER BENEFITS

  • HDMI/HDCP with the Simplicity of Analog - Hassle-free plug-and-play operation eliminates the need for time consuming, cumbersome work-around tools to deal with HDCP key constraints and resolution incompatibilities
  • Simplified Design and Installation - Audio, video, control, USB signals, Ethernet and power are distributed over one twisted pair cable speeding up installation at remote endpoints
  • Reduce Network Drops - Centralized Ethernet communication from the Enova DGX can be implemented with the ICSLan port - providing IP access points at every DXLink Transmitter and Receiver

CUSTOMER BENEFITS

  • Interruption-Free Content - Exclusive InstaGate Pro™ Technology allows audio and video to be switched quickly and easily to every connected display without the difficulties typically associated with HDCP
  • Audio, Video and Control Everywhere - Compact low-profile design and remote powering capabilities allows the transmitter to be installed in discreet locations out of sight without additional wiring
