    Item #: DM-XIO-DIR-80

    The DM® XiO Director, model DM-XIO-DIR-80, is an enterprise-grade network appliance that facilitates configuration, control, and management of a large-scale AV network. Using DM NVX encoder/decoders, Crestron® offers the industry’s most versatile and scalable solution for distributing 4K60 4:4:4 HDR video over an IP network. The XiO Director provides a means for managing large networks of DM NVX devices, routing AV signals, and simplifying integration with one or more Crestron control systems.

    Virtual DM® Switcher
    The XiO Director virtually emulates the functionality of a traditional hardware-based DigitalMedia™ matrix switcher, routing high-quality 4K streaming AV signals throughout a room, building, or campus. The DM-XIO-DIR-80 model supports a total of 80 endpoint devices consisting of DM NVX encoders and decoders. Multiple XiO Director units can be deployed, with the ability to route signals between units just like hardware switchers [1], easily handling even the largest corporate enterprise, university, governmental, military, medical, transportation, sports, entertainment, hospitality, gaming, or retail application.

    Simple, Flexible Configuration
    System configuration could not be simpler. The XiO Director automatically discovers each DM NVX endpoint on the network, and allows each endpoint to be assigned as a logical input or output to the software-based matrix switcher. The XiO Director effectively eliminates the need for a physical switcher, providing the virtual equivalent running on the AV network.

    Note: The DM-XIO-DIR-80 assigns all associated endpoints to a single “domain.” A domain is a logical grouping of endpoints that operate together as a single switching entity. Each DM-XIO-DIR-80 in a system functions as a separate domain. Other XiO Director models, including the DM-XIO-DIR-160 and DM-XIO-DIR-ENT, can support multiple domains. Refer to each model’s spec sheet for more information and additional available features.

    Easy Web-based Setup and Control
    The XiO Director provides an intuitive web-based user interface to facilitate system configuration, signal routing, and comprehensive diagnostics of the complete AV network. Each domain and endpoint, as well as the inputs and outputs on each endpoint, can be designated with a user-friendly name. Navigating the entire system is easy using the search box [1] to quickly find domains, endpoints, inputs, and outputs by name or address. A system overview screen is also provided, showing the video and audio signal status for every input and output in a graphical layout that’s easy to view and navigate.
