Keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) solutions provider IHSE will be bringing what the company calls “True KVM” workstation management solutions to 2019 NAB Show with its latest HDMI 2.0 extenders for 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) video and USB keyboard and mouse extension over fibre or Cat-X connections.
Based on the Fraunhofer IIS Lici codec, these new extenders enable “picture-perfect” transmission of video sources with resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 at 60Hz and full-colour depth at 10-bit, 4:4:4.
Offered in several module types, the Draco vario Ultra HDMI 2.0 extender includes features such as looping outputs and redundant ports for maximum efficiency whether used as point-to-point connections or integrated into IHSE’s KVM switch systems.
IHSE will also be exhibiting its Draco vario SDI extender, which is designed to bring SDI and KVM together using an IHSE direct-connect KVM/SDI converter card, combining and converting between SDI video and digital video signals while eliminating the need for external conversion/extender units.
Moreover, an SDI CPU extender can accept SDI video signals up to 3G-SDI, and make them available to KVM CON units — either directly or through a Draco tera KVM matrix switch — for connection to DVI, HDMI, or DisplayPort monitors. An SDI CON unit is also able to convert digital video signals for display on an SDI monitor.
Users can process embedded audio either through the SDI source, or separately with audio upgrade cards.
