Virtual DM Switcher for the DM NVX Series
As standard, the DM NVX series products can be configured and setup online using a computer browser. Typically, this application is fine for small scale AV networks that are unlikely to change over time. However, for the more extensive AV networks or for those where the configurations are likely to evolve, the Crestron XiO Director is the best investment you will make.
The XiO Director is a network AV management appliance that brings the DM NVX series to life; delivering on the promise of unlimited AV network flexibility and scalability. With the XiO Director you can remotely monitor your entire DM NVX system and configure it for real time applications, all from a central location.
Emulating the functionality of a traditional hardware-based DM matrix switcher, the XiO Director can route 4K60 streaming AV signals throughout a room, building or campus. Multiple units can be deployed to easily handle even the largest application; whether that is for corporate enterprises, government, medical or military institutions, or sports, entertainment and retail venues.
The XiO Director effectively eliminates the need for physical switchers in every room, replacing them with the virtual equivalent running on the AV network.
Simple, flexible configuration for your AV network
The XiO Director serves as a central virtual switcher and makes it unbelievably simple to manage large matrices of DM NVX endpoints. Configuring your network simple and fast. The XiO Director automatically detects each DM NVX endpoint on the network and allows you to assign a user-friendly name to it. Domains can be set up to manage groups of endpoints that operate together in a single switching setup; allowing individual rooms and other subsystems to be arranged and controlled independently.
Everything you need to configure and manage your network can be accessed via the simple-to-use, web-based user interface. See your network at a glance from the system overview screen or use the search box to locate any encoder or decoder. XiO Director enables you to immediately see any issues; such as an encoder dropping off the network or displays showing the wrong resolution. Firmware updates can be delivered remotely and administrators can switch the encoder/decoder mode for any product, on the fly, as requirements change.

The XiO Director is available in 3 models, each based on the number of endpoints required in your AV network. Please see below for more information. The key features listed below are available across all three models. Please view each model and its datasheet for features specific to that product.
