AMX Innovates with Twice the Remotely Powered AV and Unlimited Energy Savings Potential

Amsterdam, Netherlands, Jan 31, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- AMX(R) continued its quest to be the talk of Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2013 by debuting another product designed to make digital and analog media distribution simple to centrally manage while at the same time reducing costly energy usage for the end user. The new Dual Power over DXLink(TM) Controller (PDXL-2) was a welcome surprise for many visitors to AMX ISE Booth # 1-F6 for its ability to solve a number of remote distribution challenges.

The PDXL-2 surfs the speed bumps of long distance AV delivery from three points of attack. As a DXLink power injector, it conveniently enables data and power transport of up to 30 watts on each of the PDXL-2's two available DXLink device outputs between transmitters and receivers located up to 100 meters away from each other. Additionally, by injecting Power over DXLink via the existing DXLink path, a stand-alone point-to-point DXLink Transmitter to Receiver installation can be created for single room applications. And, the PDXL-2 eliminates the aesthetic inconvenience and cost of installing electrical outlets at every transmitter or receiver location.

While the PDXL-2 was primarily designed to make remote AV distribution simpler to manage, it can also generate significant and impactful ROI by smartly curbing wasted energy usage throughout a floor, building or campus. Acting as a conduit for a NetLinx(R) Controller, the PDXL-2 enables administrators to remotely power down unused devices via I/O control from a single, central location. AMX Resource Management Suite(R) Enterprise Software can multiply these savings even further by scheduling and executing automated power down routines, freeing IT to address more pressing matters than room to room, device to device facility power-down tours.

Availability and Additional Details The new Dual Power over DXLink Controller (PDXL-2) is expected to begin shipping in February as AMX continues planned delivery of all of the products announced during ISE 2013 to be available at least two months ahead of initial scheduled release.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
