I’ve cogitated and ruminated over the massive range of Crestron products and I am simply loving these 3 new releases from Crestron. We will be looking in more depth into NVX and it’s expansive Superyacht applications but basically, they are almost limitless. Darkeness to light with shades and the 310 is remote that makes remotes cool again but also delivers for the AVIT Officer is ease of programing.




DM® NVX is the latest generation of Digital Media™, the only fully-engineered, field-proven, end-to-end solution for managing and distributing digital AV and control signals. DM NVX technology is the only secure solution that transports stunning ultra-high-definition 4K video with 4K60:4:4:4 over standard 1GB Ethernet, with no latency, ideal for the marine environment. DM NVX is a single low-profile compact device that can be easily installed and configured to operate as either a network AV encoder or decoder, reducing hardware requirements on board. In addition, the built-in intelligent software makes everything easy to configure, commission, and control from the web. It’s a small piece of equipment, packing a massive punch. www.crestron.com/nvx

Remote controls and keypads are dead or are they? I still need the ergonomic weight and feel of a remote. When you factor in the total control you have over the 310 it’s an owners dream.

The interchangeable top and bottom trim pieces of Crestron’s Horizon keypads are guaranteed to suit any décor and provide the ultimate in style and elegance. To ensure visibility under any lighting conditions multi-coloured programmable backlighting illuminates the engraved text on the buttons, which, if desired once pressed can glow up to two to three times brighter than the inactive buttons. The Horizon keypads are highly-configurable and can be arranged side-by-side in a multi-gang electrical box, all buttons in a multi-gang arrangement align perfectly to form one continuous control surface with no separation. www.crestron.com/horizon

It seems a simple, the need to control and protect from light but no one has achieved this level of finesse and choice. For the decerning child of light!
