U.S. DISA JITC Security Testing and Approval
AMX is dedicated to providing world class engineering, top notch design, and delivering reliable, secure solutions to the world’s government and military agencies and installations. Designing products deemed secure enough for the US Department of Defense (DoD) as well as other government clients requiring mission critically secure solutions has always been a priority at AMX. Now, AMX has completed the US Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) Approved Products List (APL) testing.
The Enova® DVX All-In-One Presentation Switcher Series is an approved room control and switching solution listed on DISA’s Unified Capabilities (UC) Approved Products List (APL).
This means it has been tested and approved by the US DoD as a JITC certified secure command and control, conference, training and briefing room solution. US DoD policy specifies that customers on US DoD networks must use a JITC certified product over competing products offering similar functionality that are not listed on the APL.
From the DISA website:
“The APL is the only listing of equipment by DoD to be fielded in DoD networks. DoD components are required to fulfill their system needs by only purchasing APL listed products, providing one of the listed products meets their needs.”1

The AMX JITC Testing and Approval Process
Being listed on the US DoD Unified Capabilities APL under the Video Distribution System Category means that the entire switching system (DVX, DXLink™ and Modero X® Series G4) has completed the Interoperability (IO) and Information Assurance (IA) certification, making it JITC Certified.
AMX Product that is JITC Approved
- AMX Enova DVX All-In-One Presentation Switchers: Supports all your conference room AV, switching and distance transport needs
- AMX Enova DXLink Transmitters and Receivers*: Sends HDMI with HDCP up to 100 meters over a single, standard twisted pair cable
- AMX Modero X Series G4 Touch Panels*: Enterprise-grade user interface that makes control and automation of AV devices to defense systems simple for any user
*When used in combination with an Enova DVX
Enova DVX is a JITC Certified alternative for these products:
|"I believe achieving JITC certification for both Interoperability and Information Assurance is a huge success for AMX and their integrators. In my opinion, one of the hardest steps in designing and then commissioning a system is dealing with the strict guidelines of the FSO and/or IA team. Knowing the DVX line is on the Approved Products List makes my job easier knowing the core of the system is already approved. This truly is a valuable certification to have for those DoD projects requiring Unified Communications across DISA networks."
— Michael Wilson, Director of Systems Engineering, Corbett Technology Solutions, Inc. (CTSI)
|"Getting JITC approval is no small task. This says to me that AMX is taking defense applications very seriously and is willing to invest considerable time and effort. In many cases, products not on the APL will not be accepted in a system design. Secure environments require certification from an IA (Information Assurance) organization and selecting products on the APL can help speed up IA certification."
