Crestron Officially Certifies NETGEAR M4300 Switches

large-SMB_ARTICLE_CRESTRON_2020-3-17_COMM.jpg

 

This is big news!  Our M4300 switches have already been deployed with Crestron® DM NVX® encoders & decoders already, but now Crestron's team has officially certified the M4300 switches for Crestron DM NVX to ensure full compatibility.  This provides integrators and consultants the peace of mind to know that this Crestron + NETGEAR solution will work out of the box.

 

I think that's one of the key points to make here - you do not need a configuration file to make this work.  Most other switches require a special configuration file that you have to log in to either Crestron's site or the manufacturer's site, download, then log in to the switch and upload.  And hope all of that goes without any hiccups. 

 

Not so with NETGEAR's M4300 series switches for Crestron DM NVX functionality.  Just plug everything in and turn on the switch.

 

We are here to make your AV over IP life easier!

Re: Crestron Officially Certifies NETGEAR M4300 Switches

Has the firmware been modified to increase the PoE capabilities to support the power requirements of the NVX?

Re: Crestron Officially Certifies NETGEAR M4300 Switches

Thanks for the question.  The M4300 series switches supply PoE+ power of 30W per port and I see from the specs that the DM-NVX-350 requires 35W.  I would check back in a few months to see about another option in the NETGEAR AV Line of switches.

The 300 series of NVX needs PoE++ or UPoE

The 30 series requires PoE+
