How much is a million?

Here’s one example: If you took one million US dollar bills and laid them end to end, the chain of cash would stretch for 96.9 miles — roughly the distance from Manhattan to the Hamptons out on Long Island. Piling those same bills vertically would yield a stack well taller than a 30-story building.

Speaking of one million: Crestron is rapidly approaching that very number of DM NVX® AV-over-IP units that will have been shipped since the product’s introduction.

The reason: DM NVX AV-over-IP solutions are incredibly versatile — not to mention reliable. Here’s a peek at just two of the thousands of projects that feature DM NVX technology.

Education: Esports at UNC Greensboro

An esports program is more than team competition or entertainment for a student body. It’s also a great way to introduce students to a variety of disciplines, from computer programming to management and even broadcasting. When UNC Greensboro undertook the creation of a 3,300 square-foot arena with 48 gaming PCs and three gaming console bays, they asked Horizon AVL and Esports Integration to create a Crestron solution.

“The flexibility, reliability, and ease of use is why my team decided to install DM NVX technology in the UNCG Esports Center,” said Joshua Kell, Chief Executive Officer, Horizon AVL, and Esports Integration.

As the case study notes, Crestron DM NVX routes audio and video to create scenic elements in their game bases. The several game bays hold various consoles that can be plugged into the wall and displayed on the corresponding TV for each game bay, which is immediately routed with a Crestron DM NVX encoder. Crestron DM NVX was also introduced into the broadcast system to have full 4K broadcasting that converts the HDMI signal to SDI, so broadcasting and streaming can happen simultaneously with very low latency.

Hospitality: Hotel Bania Thermal & Ski

There’s a hotel at the foot of Poland’s incredibly scenic Tatra Mountains, a four-star family-run complex with 277 rooms, two restaurants, thermal baths, and a world-class conference center. A recent renovation demanded a state-of-the-art AV solution that required minimal cabling, and a Crestron DM NVX AV-over-IP system installed by the firm A+V filled the bill.

“Thanks to the functionalities offered by Crestron’s DM NVX AV-over-IP technology, an impressive conference space was established in one of the most beautiful locations in Poland,” notedJarosław Kołcun, CEO, A+V.

The conference room, for example, needed multiple displays to ensure that meeting attendees could see presentations from any angle — and DM NVX technology handles the task with zero latency. Customers and their guests can tailor the system to their needs, helping turn the resort into a true business-meets-pleasure destination — and raising the area’s visibility as a vacation wonderland.

All of this leaves us with one question:

What incredible projects will the next million products be part of?
