The company’s show highlight will be the ControlCentre-IP solution
Keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) solutions provider Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) will be highlighting a KVM matrix for KVM-over-IP at Inter BEE 2018.
The company’s new ControlCentre-IP enables the extension and distributed switching of computer signals via IP networks. In combination with G&D’s IP extenders, the ControlCenter-IP forms a powerful matrix system, said G&D. 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 usability and flexibility, and allows the system to be scaled easily at all times, G&D added.
On top of this, the ControlCenter-IP removes the limits of dedicated transmission. The transmission length is “almost unlimited” as two active network components can be connected to each other over a length of up to 100m via CAT or up to 10,000m via optical fibres.
The ControlCenter-IP supports numerous signals, thus providing solutions for DVI single- and dual-link, DP1.1 and DP1.2, including real 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) @60Hz over IP. It is equipped with functionalities such as monitoring and simple network management protocol (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 intuitive operation at multi-monitor workstations.
Also at booth 4206, G&D will be displaying the DP1.2-VisionXG system, which is a KVM extender designed to extend high-resolution 4K/UHD and 8K video signals at 60Hz. It transmits 8K resolutions up to 10,000m via optical fibres, enabling remote operation of a computer without the need for it to be physically available at the workstation.
Inter BEE 2018 will be taking place from November 14-16 at the Makuhari Messe convention centre in Tokyo.
