DXLinkTM Multi-Format Wallplate
Transmitters
AVB-WP-TX-MULTI-DXLINK (FG1010-320-BL, FG1010-320-WH)
Overview
The DXLink Multi-Format Wallplate Transmitter sends analog or digital video
including HDMI/HDCP, along with embedded audio or supplemental analog audio
up to 100 meters to an Enova DGX Matrix Switcher, compatible Enova DVX All-InOne Presentation Switcher, or directly to a DXLink Receiver. It receives power from
the Enova DGX or Enova DVX (3155HD, 3156HD or 2155HD) PS-POE-AT-TC High
Power PoE Injector or PDXL-2 Dual Power over DXLink Controller over the twisted
pair cable and features both a multi-format analog port to support legacy devices
and an HDMI port to support newer digital devices.
Common Applications
Mount the DXLink Multi-Format Wallplate Transmitter in the wall or lectern to connect guest equipment and send
audio and video signals across the room, on the other side of the house or in a classroom down the hall. Since it is
powered remotely, the wallplate can be installed virtually anywhere.
Features
 Only One Cable – Send audio and video, while passing Ethernet signals and power over one twisted pair
cable
 Multi-Format Analog Port and HDMI Port – Supports legacy analog signals - RGBHV, Component, S-Video,
and Composite, and digital HDMI/HDCP, DisplayPort++ and DVI signals
 Send HDMI signals up to 100 meters – Extend the reach of the HDMI signals far beyond the capabilities of
typical HDMI cabling
 Standard Twisted Pair Cable – Save time and effort in installation by leveraging cost effective twisted pair
cable, see the Cabling for Success with DXLink white paper for more details
 Power over DXLink* Enabled – Designed for use with Enova DGX or DVX systems with DXLink inputs, PS-POEAT-TC (FG423-84) or PDXL-2 (FG1090-170) to provide remotely located Power over DXLink (requires firmware
v1.2.40 or above)


DXLink Direct Connection – When receiving Power over DXLink* from the PS-POE-AT-TC or PDXL-2, DXLink
Wallplates can be connected directly to a DXLink Receiver for a point-to-point solution
* Power must be supplied by one of the following DXLink Power sourcing devices: Enova DGX 8/16/32/64 Digital Media Switcher (with a
DXLink Twisted Pair Input Board installed), Compatible Enova DVX All-In-One Presentation Switcher (3155HD, 3156HD or 2155HD), PS-POEAT-TC High Power PoE Injector or PDXL-2 Power over DXLink Controller. AMX only supports the use of these approved Power over DXLink
solutions. Other third party power supplies or non-compatible standard PoE solutions may damage the DXLink equipment.
Dealer Benefits
 HDMI/HDCP with the Simplicity of Analog - Hassle-free plug-and-play operation eliminates the need for
time consuming, cumbersome work-around tools to deal with HDCP key constraints and resolution
incompatibilities
 Installation Friendly - Standard two gang size and remote powering capabilities allows the wallplate to be
installed in virtually any location
Customer Benefits
 Interruption-Free Content - Exclusive InstaGate Pro® Technology allows audio and video to be switched
quickly and easily to every connected display without the difficulties typically associated with HDCP
 Easily Connect Guest Devices - Provides a versatile solution for environments where sources are consistently
changing
Additional Features
 Power Remotely - Power is carried over twisted pair to simplify installation when used with the Enova DGX
 3D Support - Pass through latest video formats including 3D and Deep Color
 Surround Sound Support - Pass through high definition surround sound including Dolby Digital, DTS and up to
8-channel L-PCM at 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 96 kHz, 192kHz
 HDCP Compliant
