The Epica DGX 288 is a modular matrix switcher designed to transport uncompressed video, including HDMI with HDCP, and embedded audio, over single strand multimode or single mode fiber. With AMX exclusive DGX Technology, the system offers simple signal conversion between analog and digital signal source devices. Supporting 10 Gbps, the DGX and DXLink Fiber transport layer ensures perfect pixel for pixel reproduction of high-resolution content for today and tomorrow. This combined with maximum field serviceability makes the Epica DGX 288 the perfect solution when maximum signal quality, speed and security all need to be met without compromise
This dense 17 rack unit system utilizes LC fiber module connectors that contain both input and output connections on same connector resulting in a 288x288 matrix switcher that is just 1 rack unit larger than our 144x144. Start with the enclosure and customize the system with single mode or multimode fiber boards that contain 16 connections, for a full 16x16 matrix, on each board, up to 288x288. For flexibility, a combination of multimode and single mode boards can be used in the same enclosure with all inputs routing to any or all outputs.
Designed with maximum reliability in mind for mission-critical installations, the Epica DGX 288 has field-serviceable fiber module connectors, fan kits, CPU, and power supplies. Its enhanced cooling system dedicates an entire rack unit at the top of the unit to a field serviceable fan tray with additional cooling in the back of the unit. Fiber modules can be easily replaced allowing for an individual connection to be serviced while the rest of the matrix switcher inputs and outputs remain operational. CPU and power supply kits are also field serviceable.
The Epica DGX 288 is compatible with DXLink Multi-Format Simplex Transmitters and DXLink HDMI Simplex Receivers, and can receive and send signals from or to any Enova DGX system utilizing simplex fiber boards. This makes the Epica DGX 288 the ideal solution for very large infrastructures that require multiple systems that are directed to a central hub for wider distribution. Multimode fiber can transmit at distances up to 300 meters while single mode fiber transmits up to 10Km. These distances can be repeated from connection to connection, pass crystal clear, high resolution video with zero compression, along with audio. The DXLink Fiber Receivers feature SmartScale® Technology which automatically responds to the display's declared EDID information, scales the video resolution, and adjusts the video parameters to match the display’s native format. SmartScale Technology ensures every display operates at its preferred resolution and eliminates the incompatibilities that can arise in matrix switching systems when the output resolution of the source is not supported by some or all of the displays in the system.
