KVM-over-IP™ – a new definition of flexibility and scalability
Fri 20, 09 2019
High-performance KVM equipment for e-sports and broadcast professionals
NAB Show New York, USA, 16-17 October 2019, Booth N918
SMPTE Los Angeles, CA, USA, 21-24 October 2019, Booth 206
This fall, KVM manufacturers Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) will showcase the latest KVM trends for e-sports and broadcast professionals at NAB Show New York and SMPTE Los Angeles.
KVM for broadcast and e-sports applications
KVM systems (keyboard, video, mouse) allow you to separate computers from operators. KVM modules then make the equipment available at remote producer workstations or at various e-sports venues, where images are displayed in a high-resolution and without any latency. Therefore, you can use KVM to form a strong IT backbone offering producers and technicians enormous flexibility in operating and maintaining the connected computer systems. As KVM pioneers, G&D provide the broadest compatible KVM portfolio available on the market.
In addition to their sophisticated KVM portfolio, the KVM experts will display an absolute innovation in terms of IP transmission: the ControlCenter-IP, a matrix system for KVM-over-IP™, which enables distributed switching of computer signals over standard IP-based networks. With its lossless video quality and near-zero latency, the system completely redefines the flexibility and scalability of demanding broadcast and e-sports applications.
The IP-based system consists of the central ControlCenter-IP unit and a series of IP extension modules that form a powerful matrix for KVM-over-IP™ transmission. The system excels with flexible transmission via CAT or fiber optic cables over standard IP-based 1Gbit/s networks.
Native 4K@60 Hz over IP
The new system of the German manufacturers contains state-of-the-art technologies and thus guarantees not only pixel-perfect video transmission and best hand-eye coordination, but also the transmission of high-resolution, native 4K signals over IP while supporting resolutions up to 3840 × 2160 @ 60 Hz. In addition to solutions for DP 1.2, the company also offers modules for DVI single and dual link as well as DP 1.1 with support for all common resolutions. Thanks to lossless image quality and top performance, professional broadcast and e-sports users will find exactly what they are looking for – even on remote computers.
Classic KVM or KVM-over-IP™?
The German KVM manufacturers don’t consider the question of “either/or” when it comes to classic KVM and KVM-over-IP™ and thus specialise on both systems. “Classic systems have their own advantages and are the preferred choice for many projects,” explains Don Hosmer, Vice President Sales & General Manager of G&D North America Inc. G&D therefore continue to expand their portfolio of classic KVM systems and will present a typical KVM installation at NAB Show in New York and SMPTE in Los Angeles.
