KVM systems provide link between IT and broadcast

G&D’s DP1.2-Vision, when combined with ControlCenter-Compact, enables the transmission of 4K/UHD video signals at 60Hz

As the backbone of large computer installations, KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) systems enable media operators with distributed access to remote computers. With KVM systems, computer signals can be extended to the workstations via CAT cable or fibre optics. This empowers media operators with flexible working concepts via changing workstations as each workstation can be connected to any computer connected to the KVM matrix, according to Guntermann & Drunck (G&D).

G&D is a KVM solutions provider that services the broadcast sector with solutions that enable operators to integrate complex IT installations within their broadcast facility.

For instance, G&D’s DP1.2-Vision extender system can be deployed in combination with the KVM matrix switch ControlCenter-Compact. Compatible with G&D’s digital matrices, the KVM extension allows the extension, switching and distribution of 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) video signals through the matrix systems ControlCenter-Compact and ControlCenter-Digital.

Designed to provide “pixel-perfect” images, the KVM extender system is equipped with G&D’s HDIP compression technology, allowing the lossless transmission of 4K/UHD video signals at 60Hz.
G&D has also developed a range of matrix functionalities such as CrossDisplay-Switching, the push get-function, scenario switching, the KVM Matrix-Grid, and various monitoring functions that simplifies the use of G&D systems.

A new tally light function integrated into the matrix allows operators to transmit relevant tally light information to remote producer desks, and highlights the active “on-air” system by using a connected “ON AIR” light.

G&D will be highlighting its KVM solutions at stand H24 during BVE2018, which will be held from February 27-March 1 at the ExCel London exhibition and convention centre.
