The Extron DMS Series Modular DVI Matrix Switchers represent a new level of matrix switching for DVI. They combine the simplicity and reliability of a fixed I/O matrix switcher with the convenience and flexibility of a modular matrix switcher. DMS Series matrix switchers accept any combination of available DMS DVI or DMS Fiber matrix boards. Input and output boards are available in 4-port input, 4-port output, and 4x4 I/O versions, providing various I/O size combinations with sizes from 4x4 to 36x36, depending on the DMS Matrix Switcher Frame selected. The DMS Series is ideal for a wide range of applications that require routing of high-resolution DVI digital video signals without copy protection.
The DMS Series provides substantial flexibility, expandability, and affordability by allowing the user to select the configuration required for the applications. DMS DVI and DMS Fiber matrix boards can be mixed-and-matched within a single DMS frame to support a wide variety of matrix switching system designs. Matrix boards may be added at any time for easy and quick upgradeability or expansion.
DMS Series Frames are available in sizes to fit I/O combinations from 4x4 to 36x36. For applications requiring a compact enclosure size with a single, fixed power supply, the DMS 2000 and DMS 3200 frames support I/O configurations up to 20x20 or 32x32, respectively. For mission critical, 24/7 applications that require dual AC power inputs and hot-swappable power supplies, the DMS 1600 and DMS 3600 frames support I/O configurations up to 16x16 or 36x36, respectively. All four DMS frames accept any combination of the available DMS DVI and Fiber Matrix Boards.
DMS Series DVI Matrix Boards feature automatic cable equalization for all inputs and output reclocking for each DVI output. This reduces the need for additional signal conditioning equipment by compensating for weak source signals or signal loss when using long input cable assemblies. Automatic output reclocking restores signal integrity for improved performance. Signals are reshaped and the timing is restored to allow for transmission over long DVI cables. Additionally, the matrix switchers provide +5 VDC, 250 mA on the DVI outputs for powering external peripheral devices.
DMS Series Fiber Matrix Boards are compatible with Extron DFX Series DVI extenders and can support transmitted distances of up to 300 meters (984 feet) on one multimode fiber. These boards utilize standard LC connectors, which provide reliable physical connectivity and precise fiber core alignment, and allow the use of low-cost, widely available pre-terminated cables.
To enhance and simplify integration of DVI-equipped sources and displays, the DMS Series matrix switchers feature EDID Minder, which automatically manages EDID communication between all connected input sources. EDID Minder allows the EDID from any of the displays, or pre-stored selectable EDID information, to be assigned to any input. By maintaining continuous EDID communication with all sources, EDID Minder ensures that all DVI sources power up at the proper resolution, and maintain their video outputs whether or not they are actively connected to the digital display devices through the matrix switcher’s outputs.
The DMS Series DVI Matrix Switchers are ideal for various commercial, medical, military, and government environments where distribution of high resolution, digital video signals is needed, and a fully digital pathway is essential to maintain the highest possible image quality, from multiple sources to multiple displays.
Features* Available in I/O sizes from 4x4 to 16x16 or 36x36, depending on the DMS Matrix Switcher Frame selected* Modular and field-upgradeable design — DMS Series Matrix Switcher Frames provide substantial flexibility, expandability, and affordability by allowing users to select the configuration required for their systems. Additional input and output boards may be added at any time for easy and quick upgradeability or expansion, from 4x4 up to 36x36, depending on the DMS Frame size selected.* Hot-swappable components — Allows the replacement of a fan assembly or power supply at any time without the need to power down the switcher. This is especially useful for mission-critical applications that require continuous system operation.* Choice of DMS DVI or Fiber Matrix I/O boards — DMS Series DVI and Fiber Matrix input and output boards are available in 4-input, 4-output, and 4x4 I/O configurations. DMS Fiber Matrix Boards are compatible with Extron DFX Series DVI extenders, and can support transmitted distances of up to 300 meters (984 feet) on one multimode fiber.* Mix and match DVI and Fiber Matrix Boards — DMS DVI and Fiber Matrix Boards can be mixed-and-matched within a single DMS Frame to support a wide variety of matrix switching system designs.* Supports data rates to 4.95 Gbps - 1.65 Gbps per color* Supports computer video up to 1920x1200, including HDTV 1080p/60* EDID Minder® automatically manages EDID communication between connected devices — EDID Minder ensures that all sources power up properly and reliably output content for display.* QS-FPC™ - QuickSwitch Front Panel Controller with tri-color backlit buttons — Provides a discrete button for each input and output, allowing for simple, intuitive operation. Buttons can be custom labeled for easy identification. The buttons illuminate red, green, or amber, depending on function, for ease of use in low-light environments.* Ethernet monitoring and control — DMS Series matrix switchers can be proactively monitored and managed over a LAN, WAN, or the Internet, using standard TCP/IP protocols. Ethernet control provides for remote selection of I/O ties, EDID Minder configuration, and monitoring system status.* Global presets — Up to 32 frequently used I/O configurations may be saved and recalled either from the front panel, serial, or Ethernet control. This time-saving feature allows I/O configurations to be set up and stored in memory for future use.* I/O Grouping — I/O Grouping allows the matrix switcher to be virtually divided into smaller sub-switchers. Specific outputs, such as those designated for a specific area or a particular room can be grouped together for ease of installation and control.* Rooming — Rooming allows selected outputs into grouped together into specific "rooms", each with its own set of unique presets. A total of 10 rooms, with 10 presets per room, are available.* View I/O mode — Users can easily view which inputs and outputs are actively connected.* Control software — Provides a graphical, drag-and-drop interface for I/O configuration and other customization functions via RS-232 and RS-422 remote control.* RS-232 and RS-422 control port — Using serial commands, the DMS Series matrix switchers can be controlled and configured via the included Windows®-based control software, or integrated into a control system. Extron products use the SIS™ - Simple Instruction Set command protocol, a set of basic ASCII code commands that allow for quick and easy programming.* Optional remote control — The optional MKP 2000 and MKP 3000 X-Y Remote Control Panels provide the flexibility to control the DMS Series matrix switcher from a remote location.* Front panel security lockout — Prevents unauthorized use in non-secure environments. In lockout mode, a special button combination is required to operate the switcher from the front panel controller.* Redundant, hot-swappable power supplies — A redundant power supply is included with the DMS 3600 and available as an option for the DMS 1600. Primary and back-up power supplies provide added reliability for critical applications.* Two AC power inputs — For added power reliability, some 24-hour environments require two separate AC power sources, one as the primary source and the second for redundancy. The DMS 1600 and DMS 3600 matrix switcher frames offer two AC power inputs for continuous connection to both power sources.* Rack-mountable, full rack width metal enclosures
