Sometimes the best way to understand what a product is capable of is to see it in action, which you can do by linking directly to featured online videos, available below.

The exclusive digital platform delivered by our DGX Technology allows multiple high-resolution signal styles to be converted freely internal to the matrix switcher to numerous outputs with various styles. In addition, DGX fiber products integrate the ability to receive and/or transmit signals directly via SFP fiber connections.

InstaGate Pro® Technology

No tools, no delays and no key constraints. AMX's exclusive InstaGate Pro Technology allows traditionally key limited sources to be freely switched to any display without the typical HDCP delays.

SmartScale® Technology

Enjoy crystal clear perfect resolution on every display using AMX's exclusive SmartScale Technology which automatically outputs video that is perfectly scaled to each connected display

The EPICADGX288-VIO-MMF-S is a Simplex Multimode Fiber Input/Output Board designed for use with the Epica 288 Fiber Matrix Switcher. Each board contains 16 connections, and each connection is both an input and an output connection. Thus, each board is a full 16x16 configuration.

Compatible with DXLink Multi-Format Simplex Transmitters and DXLink HDMI Simplex Receivers, the board can also receive and send signals from or to any Enova DGX system utilizing simplex fiber boards. This makes the Epica DGX 288 the ideal solution for very large infrastructures that require multiple systems that are directed to a central hub for wider distribution.

Pass crystal clear, high resolution video with zero compression, along with audio. Compatible DXLink Fiber Receivers feature SmartScale® Technology which automatically responds to the display's declared EDID information, scales the video resolution, and adjusts the video parameters to match the display's native format. SmartScale Technology ensures every display operates at its preferred resolution and eliminates the incompatibilities that can arise in matrix switching systems when the output resolution of the source is not supported by some or all of the displays in the system.



  • Signal Type Support
    • DXLink Multi-Mode Fiber, Simplex
    • (Connectivity between TX and Input Connection and Output Connection and RX requires matching model types, multimode to multimode or single mode to single mode. The backplane architecture of the Epica DGX 288 allows for single mode inputs to be routed to multimode outputs and vice versa)
  • Compatible AMX Products
    • Must be used in conjunction with an Epica 288 Matrix Switcher Enclosure and a DXLink Simplex Multimode Fiber Transmitter and/or Reciever including DXF-TX-MMS (FG1010-363) and DXF-RX-MMS (FG1010-563)
    • Note: Can be used in conjunction with Duplex Transmitters and Receivers, however the system will maintain one-way simplex functionality. Simplex infrastructure does not support control transport over fiber (such as Ethernet, USB, IR, Serial Control or EDID); although when used as part of a complete AMX controlled solution that includes NX Control hardware, control can be provided if a supplemental independent network connection is used.
