Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) will be presenting its ControlCenter-IP matrix switch under its KVM-over-IP portfolio. The new ControlCenter-IP enables distributed switching of computer signals via standard IP-based networks on Layer 3.
Following the portfolio expansion with extender systems based on KVM-over-IP, the IP-based matrix is enhanced with “double flexibility”, enabling large installations to be operated via IP. In combination with IP extender systems, the ControlCenter-IP forms a KVM-over-IP matrix that enables the switching of all connected transmitter and receiver modules, and extends the usability and flexibility of broadcast applications.
While network switches and routers transmit IP packets from one point to another, the ControlCenter-IP manages the central system and optimises the accessibility of all devices by enabling switching between transmitter and receiver modules. And with this flexible system topology, installations can be scaled as required and extended via standard network elements, says G&D.
In delivering “pixel-perfect” video transmission, the system is able to process DisplayPort 1.1 signals, and supports video resolutions up to 2560×1600@60Hz or 3840×2160@30Hz. Furthermore, the system enables the lossless transmission of video signals using G&D’s in-house HDIP compression method, which is now in Level 3 of its development stage.
G&D will be exhibiting at booth 4H3-01.
