4U high chassis for different project requirements
Your project can be accommodated to a 4U high to serve the custom project requirements. Robust mechanics and logical interface design guarantee easy installation and operation. The chassis offers:

Custom design, custom manufactured, made of steel to serve robust mission critical projects
Regulated fans with very low noise level for long terms and stable operation
Dual, redundant, hot swappable power supply option
Frame design optimized for the best cooling and easy board exchange

Immediate, remote check and supervision of device health


You can supervise and check visually the health of the remote chassis by the help of the remote Web based user interface. Continuous health service for supervision of fan rotation, external power supplies, internal power supplies and internal temperature of boards/chassis are possible. The status of these parameters is permanently displayed over the remote user interface while user can check all the status information in detail. The status of these parameters is saved to special log files also.

Highly redundant power connections
The chassis contains internal power supplies supporting all of the international mains electricity standards from 90V up to 265V. The optional second redundant power supplies give high reliability as they are
• Fully redundant, sharing the system load among the units
• Hot swappable, so they can be exchanged during full operation
• Provide altogether 2 units for the 4U chassis
The system operation can be switched on and switched off by the mains switch on the front of the chassis.

Front LED and push buttons for setup and supervise the first steps
The front panel LED displays status information for setup and control. There are push buttons for navigation and control inside the setup to handle setting up of basic configuration information

 

• Setting of DHCP or fixed IP address and additional LAN parameters
• Function assignment of signal driving push buttons
• Setting of RS232C signals’ connection parameters
• OSD display settings
• Factory reset setting

Front panel push buttons for quick layout management
There is a set of push buttons for input signal and a separate set for output signal management. They can work for multiple purposes:
• The input buttons can select a certain input signal to be displayed on a certain output channel identified by the output button. This can be used for signal display one-by-one, usually for testing.
• The user can generate layouts and can assign them to push buttons. In this case the push of a certain button recalls the pre-designed layout on a rather straightforward way.

 

Disable of push button operation to prevent unauthorized access
Front panel push button operation can be disabled using a special system setting. In this case users can prevent un-authorized user action from the front panels which improves system security.

 

Easy connection to the world by interface connectors
The DMX302-Pro products contain different control interfaces for the easy local or remote control
• 1 x DVI output connector to display local monitor for system setup and control
• 4 x USB2.0 connectors for firmware upgrade, save/reload configuration information or
o 1 x local mouse for system control

Convenient local control of the box by mouse, keyboard and local monitor
The DMX302-Pro products provide chance for local control using the locally connected peripherals. Full functioning graphics user interface on the locally connected monitor handles user login and layout management by the mouse and keyboard. The operator sitting in front of the device can manage the full operation without any LAN connection. So system security can be enhanced significantly.

 

Modular chassis design to serve different projects
The modular chassis can accommodate different input boards and build up the custom configuration tailored to the project. The 4U high chassis can handle 4 x input boards and 4 x output boards.

 

No external converters needed as all industry standard signals supported for the easy integration
As an all-in-one solution the DXM300-Pro products process all the industry standard input signals with direct cable connection. So no external signal conversion is needed, everything is handled by the very same, single DEXON box. The input boards handle usually 4 signals with direct connectors and 4 x L,R base line audio inputs as
• 4 x HDMI 4K 60Hz signals, 4 x audio, up to 4K resolution
• 4 x DVI signals, up to 1920x1200 resolution
• 4 x HDBaseT signals with RJ45 connectors, 4 x audio, up to 4K 30 Hz resolution
• 4 x SDI, HD-SDI, 3GSDI, 4 x audio

Different signal colour formats at your finger tips
The DMX302-Pro devices automatically support different colour spaces as
• RGB 8
• YUV 4:4:4 or
• YUV 4:2:2

 

Universal L,R audio handling at the input ports
The 4 x Phoenix connectors handle base line L, R analogue audio signals. The audio connectors have 2 roles depending on user interface setting
• Input of base line, L, R analogue audio signal for internal matrix switch and output audio generation
• Output of audio signal de-embedded from the corresponding HDMI or HDBaseT or SDI input channel
So no external audio handling needed as de-embedding, embedding and analogue input audio processing is performed also.

 

Different output signal resolutions at your finger tips
The outputs support HDMI signals up to 4K60 resolution, as from 640x 480 60 Hz pixels up to FHD as 1920x1080 60 Hz or 1920x1200 60 Hz, UHD as 3840x2160 at 60Hz or 4K as 4096x2160 at 60Hz in progressive mode.

 

Different signal colour formats at your finger tips

• YUV 4:2:2

 

Universal audio handling at the output ports
The output signals contain embedded audio where the independent audio matrix can assign audio of any input channels to be embedded. Additionally the 4 x Phoenix connectors handle base line L, R analogue audio output signals for the direct connection to external processing equipment.

 

The 3-in-1 concept to serve perfect solution to different needs
The DIMAX-Pro name – as a new class in the AV industry – covers hybrid matrix switchers that can satisfy all rendering requirements of an AV project, an office department, a building or even a factory.
This unprecedented 3-in-1 solution integrates different functions into a single chassis.
• The presentation matrix offers scaling up, scaling down, seamless switching, cross fade switching and PIP rendering.
• The routing matrix performs matrix switching from any input to any or multiple outputs without any resolution change
• The video processor can drive video walls with real time display and scaling of input signals to any video wall position.

 

New concept of sections to handle multiple users and services
DMX302-Pro family introduces the new concept of section. Each of the sections may have assigned input signals to handle, outputs to control and users with different access rights. The hierarchical user right system ensures user access and control to selected sections and so selected inputs and outputs only. The world class DMX302-Pro products provides free setup for the administrator to
• define sections and name them
• assign specific input channels
• assign selected out channel
• define operation mode as presentation matrix, routing matrix or video processor
• assign users
• assign different rights for each user
Rather sophisticated architectures and operation modes can be designed and performed with these new tools.

 

 

The right number of input and output signals assigned to the users
The users of different sections may share input signals but have a distinct set of output signals to manage. The channel numbers can be set one-by-one and no restriction to map the 4-channels capability of the input and out boards.

 

Real time signal handling for perfect customer satisfaction
The DMX302-Pro products perform all operations in real time. So the output signals are displayed in real time from the inputs regardless of the signal resolution, scaling, PIP and number of signals controlled. No drop of frames, no black frames or transitions can be experienced.

 

Unlimited scaling of input signals to outputs
The DMX302-Pro devices contain two output signal scaling engines for each of the output channels. The scaling operation has no limit so the scale up from any input resolution as for example 640x480 or 1024x768 to any output resolution up to 1920x108, 3840x2160 or even 4098x2160 are possible. The scale down from any input resolution as for example 3840x2106 can be performed to any output resolution as 1290x720 is possible. One of the scaling engines serve the main output while the second one supports the PIP channel. The scaling operation results crystal clear image displayed in real time with no drop of frames.

 

PRESENTATION EFFECTS

The Picture-in-Picture visualization means display of a second input over the main output window. This second window can display any of the input sources in any position and any scaling/size over the main image. Cropping and arbitrary positioning are supported while the visualization is performed in real time.
These DMX302 matrices offer seamless switching of two inputs to the very same output. This best-in-class effect has perfect transition of the signals, meaning no distortion and no black frames. Practically this is perfect switch with zero latency because the change of input frame A to input B is performed during the VSYNC, i.e. the vertical synchron signal active period. This operation is performed by complex hardware FPGA devices.
Fading in means that the video image will open slowly fading from the background. The background can be a solid colour background or even other live video image from any video input. You can customize the time frame to your application.

Fade-out means that the video image fades slowly out to the background. The background can be a solid colour background or even other active video image from any video input. You can customize the desired time to your application.

 

Cross-fade means that the video image of input A slowly fades to video image B through a smooth transition. This operation is performed in real time of course.

 

OSD over output signals (On-Screen-Display)
There is a built-in information text about the current output settings and input connections. This information text can be visualized on the OSD (On-Screen-Display) panel. The visibility settings of the OSD panel can be changed here.
• Auto: the information panel is automatically displayed in case of any changes in the settings.
• Yes: the information panel is visualized permanently.
• No: the information panel is not visible.
By default, the information panel can be seen on the top-left corner of each display output. The position, size, timing, content, background colour, the text colour and the highlighted colour can also be specified in the OSD panel.

 

Remote preview of input and output signals for the total management of the system
The graphics user interface has a built-in option to display stamp sized preview of multiple input and output signals. This live preview makes possible to check the input and output signal validity and content by the operator continuously. Great chance to have the total overview what is happening over the system and the environment. This is a remote preview so the operator can see remotely without any direct access to any of the inputs or output signals.

 

Professional HDCP handling
The products offer professional HDCP handling as supporting HDCP 1.4, 2.0 or 2.2 standards for the perfect integration of the boxes to complex environments. The user can set up at the input side to reflect handling of
• No HDCP
• HDCP 1.4
• HDCP 1.4 or 2.0 or 2.2
The device handles all HDCP standards at the output side depending on the peripheral connected. All the HDCP rules are strictly kept when displaying signals with different HDCP standard.

 

Perfect EDID handling
The EDID handling at the output and input side has been developed to support easy system integration. Different EDID handling method include the chance to develop custom EDID to be presented to special input sources.

 

Custom output resolution for LED walls
These devices handle all standard output resolutions. Additionally we offer the opportunity to specify custom output resolution. Custom Output Timing Editor helps to create a new output timing, modify a created timing or delete one of created timings. The Custom Output Timing feature will expand the output timing list on output settings page, if it is compliant with the output card capabilities. Several custom timings can be created and they can be used for several output channels also.
This editor gives total access to the parameters in order to create a custom output timing:
• The Pixel Frequency (unit: MHz) - the number of pixels per second
• The Active Area Width (unit: pixels) - the number of visible pixels per line
• The H Blanking Interval (unit: pixels)
• The H Front Porch (unit: pixels)
• The H Sync Width (unit: pixels)
• The Active Area Height (unit: lines) - the number of visible lines
• The V Blanking Interval (unit: lines)
• The V Front Porch (unit: lines)
• The V Sync Height (unit: lines)
• The Sync polarities (positive or negative)
