The ControlCentral-IP is a matrix system to extend and switch computer signals via standard IP-based networks on Layer 3.
The ControlCenter-IP will be launched at IBC 2018
Returning to Europe after a successful BroadcastAsia2018, German keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) manufacturer Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) will be launching the ControlCenter-IP at IBC 2018 this September.
The ControlCenter-IP is a matrix system to extend and switch computer signals via standard IP-based networks on Layer 3. This allows even the largest IT installations to be easily scaled and implemented via IP access, says G&D.
With the DP-Vision-IP extender, which was introduced last year, and the brand-new extenders for KVM-over-IP DP1.2-Vision-IP and DL-DVI-Vision-IP, the central appliance ControlCenter-IP forms a strong KVM matrix that offers “pixel-perfect” video quality, high performance and maximum reliability for broadcast-typical control rooms.
This matrix for KVM-over-IP, G&D adds, fits into the company’s existing portfolio, and provides functionalities such as monitoring and simple network management protocol (SNMP), scripting and scenario switching, push-get and CrossDisplay-Switching for intuitive operation at multi-monitor workstations.
The ControlCenter-IP is also designed to offer high interoperability and can be optimally integrated into existing media or broadcast control and monitoring systems to ensure uniform operation, and to bundle and simplify multi-level, complex processes. Thanks to the integrated IP-Control-API, the ControlCenter-IP is able to communicate with the broadcast control system and can thus execute any switching commands.
At booth 1.D39 at IBC 2018, interested visitors can experience how the IP matrix system can be included in a typical broadcast control room application with control and monitoring systems.
