Uniting the worlds of digital and analogue KVM
To be able to continue using VGA-based KVM matrix systems and to integrate digital state-of-the-art solutions, G&D developed the Bridge function.
With the function, users can integrate CATCenter NEO clusters into digital matrix switch systems (ControlCenter-Digital or DVICenter) and operate the entire system over single one user interface.
Bridging the gap between analogue and digital
In the world of computers, the analog video signal VGA has been playing a leading role for more than two decades. Any resolutions based on VGA were optimised for CRT displays. After the introduction of LCD displays, the analogue signal had to be converted into a digital signal.
Following VGA, the digital DVI signal didn’t need to be converted and allows for much higher resolutions than VGA. Changing signal standards within the world of computers, however, can cause immensely high follow-up costs.
KVM outlives generations of signals
Our analogue KVM matrix systems run for years since they are known for being robust, solid and reliable. Therefore, it wouldn’t be wise to replace a system while its return on investment is still active, not to mention the effort required for a new installation. Yet, there has to be a way to integrate up-to-date, DVI-based computers into KVM systems.
G&D products survive a generational change of signals unscathed. To be able to continue using VGA-based KVM matrix systems and to integrate digital state-of-the-art solutions, we now provide their customers with the new Bridge function. The function figuratively bridges the gap between and unites existing analogue and digital matrix systems.
Simplifying complicated switching
The theoretical concept of the Bridge function is similar to setting up a cascade. The analogue matrix (e.g. CATCenter NEO) is integrated into the digital system (e.g. ControlCenter-Digital or DVICenter): A computer module with analogue-to-digital converter (VGA-CPU) integrates the CATCenter NEO’s analogue user module (UCON) into the digital matrix.
And as always, we put usability first. The logical connection between both systems saves users from clicking through various different OSDs. And most importantly: Users don’t even realise the physical and technical processes running in the background. They simply use their VGA computers in their digital working environment. The video signal becomes secondary. Every source is only one keypress away. All accessible computers are displayed in a clearly-arranged list so that users can focus on their actual work.
Advantages of the Bridge function
In addition to accessing analogue and digital worlds with one single system, the Bridge function offers further advantages:
- No complex reconstructions necessary
- Easy selection of computers via OSD
- Sophisticated rights assignment
- Overview of all connected computers
- High return on investment through long life cycle of analogue KVM systems
- Expansions with entirely digital systems possible
- Future-proof installation
- Expansions (Push-Get, external media control etc.) can still be used.
