DMX101 Routing Matrix, 4K60 RGB or YUV 4:4:4 

DEXON Systems offer a best-in-class routing matrix switcher as part of our DIMAX Family. This router matrix handles real 4K60 4:4:4 HDMI signals and switches one input to multiple outputs, one input to any of the outputs, additionally it can switch any inputs to any outputs. This is a routing matrix – meaning that the incoming signal resolution matches with the outgoing one. It may perform some signal format conversions but no scaling or no signal frequency modification. This product is available in a 4U high chassis offering modular solutions from 4x4 up to 32x32 matrix configurations. Using 4 and 8-channel input and output boards, DMX101-Pro offers EDID management and integrated HDCP handling. Customers can manage matrix switching and control internal audio matrix by simple drag-and-drop operations using the web-based user interface.

Application area of this device is rather wide as it can be integrated to serve show rooms, board rooms, cinemas, conference centers, universities and government projects. Thus, we can offer this product for many different installations where resolution and different standard inputs must be switched to other outputs parallel.

New concept of sections to handle multiple users and services

The DMX101 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 DMX101 products provide 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.

DMX101 Sections

 

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 DMX101 products perform all operations in real time. No drop of frames, no black frames or transitions can be experienced.
 
 

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