Aurora Multimedia, a producer of IP control systems and HD video distribution solutions, has introduced three new DXM matrix card cage switchers to its Digital Xtreme product family.
The new line-up consists of DXM-88-G3 8x8, DXM-1616-G3 16x16, and the DXM-3232-G3 32x32 card-cage matrix systems and adds capabilities such as 4K content delivery, QXT touch panel control, and the integration of a 1G network switch.
“Now in its third generation, our innovative line of Digital Xtreme matrix card cage systems provide unparalleled flexibility by giving installers a wide range of input and output options to better satisfy today's high-speed media requirements,” said Paul Harris, CEO, Aurora Multimedia. “Shown at InfoComm for the very first time, the new 4K devices further facilitate the selection, control, and delivery of any digital content, providing powerful capabilities for any restaurant, sports bar, conference center, house of worship, or other multiroom facility application.”
The units also introduce new features such as the integration of Aurora Multimedia's QXT touch panel control engine as the devices' main interface. Increasing ease-of-use, the units' front panels now house the new QXT-700 touch panel, offering control for matrix capabilities in addition to full system control by adding IP, RS232, IR, relays, and DIO ports directly onto the units.
Further major updates include the addition of an embedded 1G network switch — allowing Ethernet to pass directly over HDBaseT inputs and outputs — streamlining wiring infrastructure throughout any facility. To simplify the installation process even further, the DXM-G3 system also provides Power over HDBaseT (PoH) for all Aurora Multimedia HDBaseT peripherals — HDBaseT Wall plates and Receivers — as well as audio breakaway switching for complete flexibility within multizone audio setups.
Aurora Multimedia's third generation of card cages also provides DXM-G3 frame scaling to fit any application — providing customers with three frame sizes as well as the ability to partially fill frames to meet particular job requirements and lower costs. In addition, the devices offer a multitude of I/O card combinations such as four-channel HDMI, HDBaseT, Fiber, and SDI.
