High performance in compact form - the new ControlCenter-Compact
A KVM matrix system of the ControlCenter-Compact series consists of at least one central module, one console module and one computer module. The central module of the ControlCenter-Compact series is the central component of the KVM matrix system. Both console and computer modules are connected to the matrix.
The KVM matrix system enables a console module to be connected to a computer module. The video image of the computer connected to the computer module is displayed on the console monitor. Use the keyboard and mouse of the console to operate the connected computers. The ControlCenter-Compact is available in CAT, fiber and mixed versions. This ensures that you can always use the right KVM matrix system for your application.
Thanks to its dynamic port technology, each interface can be used as an input or output for connecting computers or simultaneous workstations.
The ControlCenter-Compact series is fully compatible with DVICenter, ControlCenter-Digital and the end components for computer and console connections. These also include the DP1.2 vision systems which enable the latency-free signal transmission of 4K video at a full 60 Hz refresh rate through the matrix.
Transmission media of the ControlCenter-Compact
In addition to being able to select the size of the switch, you can choose between different variants of connection sockets. Thus, you can select the perfect product for your existing or future infrastructure.
All ports are equipped with CAT connectors.
CAT / Fiber mixed
Mixed number of ports with CAT or fiber connectors.
All ports are equipped with fiber connectors.
Expansion level of the ControlCenter-Compact
As a part of the expansion module "TS function", CrossDisplay-Switching enables users to switch between channels simply by moving the mouse. The mouse acts as if on a “virtual desktop” and can be moved seamlessly across the connected displays. Moving the cursor from the active to another display, the keyboardmouse focus automatically switches to the connected computer.
Now users can create an intuitive multi-monitor console and use the mouse to easily switch between channels.
Push get function
Push-get function optimises collaboration in the control room and allows the user to „push“ (push) the image on his monitor to the display of another workstation or a large-screen projection or to „get“ it from there (Get).
This solution also improves the communication, flexibility and speed within the team, since employees can now perform tasks together.
Monitoring & SNMP
The DC-Monitoring feature enables you to detect the system status of G&D devices.
The web interface of the particular device provides information that can be sent (SNMP trap) or queried (SNMP GET) as well.
The dynamic ports of the ControlCenter-Compact are usable for computer or user modules. The ControlCenter-Compact identifies automatically if a computer module or console module is connected.
In addition to combining multiple computers to a console, the ControlCenter-Compact also supports multi-monitor workstations for computers with several video outputs. Here, multiple channels can easily be combined as channel groups.
As always, you can administrate all functions in the ControlCenter-Compact web interface. In addition to multiple screens, you can include other signals in these groups. The system also transmits and switches transparent USB2.0 signals as well
If multiple ControlCenter-Compact ports are grouped as multi-channel configuration,
the new USB pinning function enables you to hold the USB transmission on the current computer even when switching to another channel. In this case the USB transmission is not interruped but transmitted to the end.
- Boot loader, operating system and firmware form a trusted computing platform to protect the system against third-party manipulations
- integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) protects any access and configuration data against exposure with RSA encryption process
- Failover connection (if the central module fails, you can establish a direct connection between user module and computer module and still operate the system). This feature is provided with a cable length of max. 140m.
- Support of external authentication via LDAP, Active Directory, TACACS+, Radius
- Redundant power supply
- Accesses only the computers' standard interfaces
- Requires no software installation
- Available as desktop and 19" variant
- Shipped in an aluminium housing for best noise immunity

Applications for ControlCenter-Compact
Due to its dynamic port assignment, the ControlCenter-Compact is suitable for use in all applications in which a large number of computers are to be operated by several simultaneous workstations.
Thanks to the wide range of different computers and workstation modules, the ControlCenter-Compact can adapt to changing requirements. Areas of application are e.g. in control rooms, OB vans or any kind of control room.
