DigitalMedia delivers the fastest switching times available
Environmental requirements drive the need for scalers
Choice to include scalers (or not) = flexibility
AMX’s DVX automatically puts scalers on outputs based on product design
AMX’s scalers produce image distortion
AMX adding scalers compromises your system and reputation

May decreases speed
Added expense
• Scalers drive up the cost of the DGX
• Crestron DMPS-300-C costs 38% less than the
AMX DVX-3155HD-T.

Without the use of scalers
Perfect image 100% of the time
Fastest lock times with new “auto-locking” technology

Creates the fastest, clearest and most dependable switch

• DigitalMedia delivers the fastest switching times available
• Environmental requirements drive the need for scalers – not the manufacturer

The general function of a video scaler is to convert one resolution into another
Switching time is determined by which components are included in the overall solution, not by the switcher
Switching Overview – Deep Dive
• DigitalMedia delivers the fastest switching times available
• Environmental requirements drive the need for scalers – not the manufacturer
• The option to pick and choose whether or not to use a scaler offers tremendous flexibility
• Flexibility in Design

AMX’s DVX automatically puts scalers on outputs, even when unnecessary, based on
product design
• Negative results are the outcome based on AMX’s scaler inclusion (see below)

1. Loss of image quality
Scaler quality vary widely
AMX’s is inferior and introduces unwanted image distortion

2. Lack of flexibility
May not need/want a scaler
Need – the latest HD displays have scalers built-in offering fast locks w/o a scaler
Want – Scaling saves only milliseconds and may not be worth the investment

Purpose of a scaler is to lock with the display
In many cases, the locking time of the display is faster than the scaler, creating a slower switch

Scalers they’re not cheap
Drive up cost unnecessarily when forced to buy them
Misleading AMX Switching Facts
Crestron
AMX’s features scalers on every output of the 10x4
• 10x4 is one of their most popular and comparable to the DMPS-300
AMX
$14,000
• Combining their DX Link (8G equivalent) and HDMI on a single output
AMX’s scalers can produce image distortion resulting from the
absence of de-interlacing technologies
• Result is a “blurry” image
Putting the scaler on the outputs automatically drives up the
cost of the unit
• Think of it as a “Scaler Tax” you are forced to pay
Crestron DMPS-300-C costs 38% less than the AMX DVX3155HD-T.
