The NAV E 201 D is a Pro AV over IP encoder in a decorator-style wallplate that streams ultra-low latency, high quality video and audio signals over 1 Gbps Ethernet networks at low bitrates. Using Extron's PURE3® codec, it delivers groundbreaking performance with high quality video at resolutions up to 4K @ 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling and ultra-low latency. The NAV E 201 D is fully compatible with NAV® 10 Gbps endpoints, increasing scalability for large deployments. Support for AES67 audio over IP facilitates flexible integration with DMP Plus DSPs or other IP-enabled audio components. Purpose-built to support demanding professional AV applications, the highly scalable and powerful NAV platform enables secure deployment of AV signals to thousands of endpoints.

PURE3 Codec with Intelligent Selective Streaming

The NAV E 201 D utilizes the Extron PURE3 codec, a unique wavelet-based compression technology that exceeds the performance characteristics found in standards-based compression systems. With virtually no latency, encoded video signals are processed with 4:4:4 color quantization, while maintaining original source quality and native resolution. PURE3 Intelligent Selective Streaming, or ISS, is an exclusive Extron streaming technology that leverages periods of low motion streamed content to enhance streaming performance. The PURE3 codec also features advanced error concealment, providing high immunity to network errors such as bit errors, jitter, and out-of-order or dropped data packets. PURE3 error concealment provides robust picture delivery without the increased latency or bandwidth typically introduced by forward error correction – FEC systems.

1 Gbps Ethernet

Designed for 1 Gbps Ethernet networks, the NAV E 201 D streams high quality video and audio, delivering an accurate reproduction of original source content. By using standard 1000Base-T 1 Gbps copper Ethernet infrastructure, the NAV E 201 D facilitates flexible system design and cost-effective streaming over large distances. The NAV E 201 D can be remotely powered with PoE powering over a PoE-compliant network switch or PoE injector, eliminating the need for external power supplies. Ideal for corporate video distribution, command and control, education, or training applications, the NAV E 201 D is a perfect solution for any installation where reliable, high quality AV over IP video distribution is desired.

HDCP 2.3

The NAV E 201 D is fully compliant with HDCP 2.3 for transmission of UHD content encrypted with the HDCP standard. It also features Extron Key Minder® to enhance and simplify the integration of HDMI-equipped devices. For HDMI signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption to support quick and reliable transmission across a network infrastructure. If the HDCP-encrypted content is streamed to a non-compliant display, the receiver sends a full-screen green signal, providing immediate visual feedback that the protected content cannot be viewed on the display.

Interoperability with AES67

The NAV platform supports the AES67 standard for transmission of audio over IP networks, facilitating integration with DMP Plus DSPs or other IP-enabled audio components. The AES67 standard provides interoperability between the predominant network audio over IP protocols in use today. The use of this standard enables AV integrators to more easily add audio networking technology into a variety of applications, ensuring reliable performance and flexibility in the distribution of audio signals.

Quick and Reliable Switching

NAV systems are not limited to video extension and distribution. Multiple encoders and decoders can be deployed together to create an IP-based video and audio matrix. NAV Pro AV over IP solutions provide the flexibility of an IP-based system, with the integration-friendly video and audio switching features found in Extron conventional matrix switchers, such as Key Minder, EDID Minder®, and USB and audio breakaway. Design a small IP-based switching system with multiple endpoints and an Extron Pro Series control system for secure switching. In larger deployments, the NAVigator System Manager can enhance matrix switching capabilities, featuring advanced control and enterprise-level system monitoring.

Priority Routing enables users to create custom tags to ensure that data is properly segregated, and endpoints are more easily located. Users can assign multiple tags to an endpoint using NAVigator software. Used in conjunction with an Extron control system, tags can be leveraged to classify, segregate, or quickly locate endpoints. Priority Routing is useful in systems with multiple security classification levels or in applications that manage many rooms over an enterprise or campus.

Easy Setup and Configuration

The NAV E 201 D features a built-in, user-friendly web interface for easy access to network settings, bitrate adjustments, and other parameters from a standard web browser. In addition to the web interface, the NAV E 201 D supports configuration from Extron PCS – Product Configuration Software. Larger deployments will benefit from the optional NAVigator System Manager, a powerful, purpose-built appliance for centralized management and control of NAV systems.

System Monitoring and Control

The optional NAVigator System Manager turns any NAV system into a powerful and flexible IP-based matrix solution. NAVigator is a purpose-built hardware appliance with a user-friendly interface for centralized management and control of NAV deployments. It facilitates easy setup, configuration, and quick switching, and includes extensive features for monitoring, diagnostics, and troubleshooting. NAVigator also facilitates bulk firmware upgrades and simultaneous configuration, backup, and restoration of multiple units from a single access point. In addition, NAVigator is designed to integrate directly with Extron Pro Series control systems, which feature a Secure Platform Interface that encrypts all commands from control processor to endpoint.


All NAV endpoints support 802.1X port-based Network Access Control. When applied, 802.1X authentication requires that all devices are approved before network access is granted. Video and data streams are also encrypted with SRTP - Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol. NAV systems work natively with Extron Pro Series control systems, which feature a Secure Platform Interface that encrypts all commands from control processor to endpoint. Together, NAV and Extron Pro Series control systems create the most secure and reliable Pro AV over IP solution on the market. Furthermore, when used with the optional NAVigator System Manager, all communication between the manager and endpoints is encrypted with SSH – Secure Shell protocol. The highly secure nature of the NAV E 201 D ensures peace of mind for any modern Pro AV application running over a network.

Pro Series Control

All NAV endpoints have a built-in Pro Series control port for RS?232 and IR, effectively expanding Extron Pro Series control systems beyond the physical location of the control processor. This unique Extron feature eliminates the need for additional control processors at the endpoints. NAV Pro Series control ensures cost-effective, encrypted control of devices anywhere the network can reach. NAV is an ideal solution for any application requiring device control, flexible video and audio switching, and reliable transmission of high-quality content over long distances.


The NAV platform is the only solution featuring seamless, complete interoperability between 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps encoders and decoders. NAV leverages the PURE3 codec, making it possible to stream video from 1 Gbps encoders to 10 Gbps decoders or reduce bitrates from 10 Gbps encoders so that streams can be readily decoded by 1 Gbps decoders. This flexibility ensures reliable delivery of superior quality video with ultra-low latency across your entire enterprise.
