G&D North America To Highlight KVM Over IP Systems at NAB NY 2018
This year, NAB Show New York promises “media in action” for broadcast professionals on the East Coast. A promise the KVM experts from G&D North America will also keep with lots of action and the live presentation of their brand new KVM-over-IP systems. In 2018, GDNA will again visit the Big Apple with a suitcase full of novelties. The team of KVM experts will show original KVM systems as well as KVM-over-IP for typical broadcast control room applications from October 17-18 at booth N919.
The new ControlCenter-IP matrix enables the extension and distributed switching of computer signals via IP networks. Offering twice the flexibility of usual systems, the new matrix does not only extend computer signals over IP, but also switches them as an n:m connection. In combination with G&D’s IP extenders, the ControlCenter-IP forms a powerful matrix system. While the network infrastructure takes over the transport of KVM-over-IP by using network switches and routers, the ControlCenter-IP contributes the logic. Thanks to the network connection and the option of using standard network components, the application gains even more flexibility. This ensures that the systems are easily expandable and scalable at all times.
Real 4K over IP
The ControlCenter-IP supports numerous signals thus providing solutions for DVI single- and dual-link, DP1.1, and DP1.2, including real 4K@60 Hz over IP. Even at high resolutions, the system delivers optimal, pixel-perfect and latency-free image quality for the best possible hand-eye coordination. The new matrix for KVM-over-IP also impresses with the usual wide range of functions offered by G&D matrix systems. Functionalities such as monitoring and SNMP, the scripting function and scenario switching, the push-get function for optimal collaboration and the control of video walls as well as CrossDisplay-Switching for absolutely intuitive operation at multi-monitor workstations have been integrated into the KVM-over-IP matrix.
New IP extenders
With the new extenders for KVM-over-IP, G&D hits the market’s nerve. Four new IP extenders now provide solutions for DP1.2a and DP1.1a as well as single-link and dual-link DVI – with powerful performance and pixel-perfect video quality over IP.
What else to expect at the GDNA stand
In order to meet individual requirements even better and to provide their customers with the best of both worlds of original KVM and KVM-over-IP, the KVM experts recently launched six new expansion stages of the compact ControlCenter-Compact matrix series. All systems come with the in-house HDIP compression technology in the latest development stage, which enables lossless transmission of video signals with a resolution of 4K at 60 Hz. Thus, the entire ControlCenter-Compact series can be combined with DP1.2-Vision KVM extenders to extend and switch 4K video signals through the matrix.
