KVM-over-IP™ meets KVM matrix – The ControlCenter-IP
The ControlCenter-IP allows, in addition to the existing point-to-point connection of IP extender systems, switching of all connected computer and console modules and extends the ease of use and flexibility.
G&D has taken the features of the classic ControlCenter series and integrated them into the KVM-over-IP matrix. The resulting ControlCenter-IP combines the advantages of both worlds.
This includes the basic administration with extensive user and rights management. Many helpful and popular control room features such as monitoring, scenario switching, push-get for optimal cooperation and incorporation of video walls to CrossDisplay-Switching for absolutely intuitive operation of multi-monitor workstations are also available. G&D's IP devices are compatible with each other and allow optimisations in the customer-side system and its extension at any time.
ControlCenter-IP - Innovation at its highest level
Thanks to the high-performance KVM-over-IP extender systems, it is possible to process 4K UltraHD signals via the ControlCenter IP.
Function of the ControlCenter-IP
The ControlCenter-IP supplements the G&D's Vision-IP series with a variety of matrix functions. These functions use G&D‘s KVM-over-IP for the transmission of signals. The transfer takes place under compression via standard IP-based networks (OSI layer model 3) and a Gigabit Ethernet. Using bandwidth management, the user can adjust the transmission to a variety of bandwidth requirements. The transmission length is almost unlimited, two active network components can be connected to each other over a length of up to 100 m via CAT or optionally also via fiber optic cabling (up to 10 km depending on the variant).
As from now, it is possible to integrate Generic USB devices into the ControlCenter-IP. Operators can also flexibly decide whether the matrix should support HID (keyboard/mouse) or mass storage devices and define this accordingly from Generic HID to Generic USB (or vice versa) in the configuration interface.
The manufacturer also has a fitting solution for high-speed USB 2.0 requirements. Since the launch of the U2-LAN-04 extender, users can integrate high-speed USB 2.0 signals with a speed of up to 480Mbit/s into their ControlCenter-IP installations. U2-LAN-04 end devices can be paired with KVM-over-IP extenders and switched synchronously or separately via the IP-Control-API.
Features of the ControlCenter-IP
The ControlCenter-IP enables the switching of the following signals
- DP 1.2 and DP 1.1a
- Single link and dual link DVI
- Audio stereo bidirectional
- Support of PS/2 and USB keyboard/mouse
- RS232 transparent
- Generic USB HID with a view to other USB classes
With the U2-LAN-04 you also can integrate high-speed USB 2.0 into your KVM-over-IP matrix installation (see "Functions & Expansions" for more information).
Device properties of the ControlCenter-IP
- The device takes over the central system logic
- Redundant power supply
- Redundant network interface
- Access protection and user administration (can be switched off)
- 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

U2-LAN-04 – Integrate high-speed USB 2.0 into your KVM-over-IP matrix installation
The U2-LAN-04 is an USB 2.0 high-speed extender and compatible with the ControlCenter-IP. The U2-LAN-04 enables the integration of high-speed USB 2.0 signals into a KVM-over-IP matrix installation and adds extensive USB functionality to the ControlCenter-IP. Within standard IP-based networks (Layer 3), G&D KVM-over-IP extenders can communicate beyond subnetwork boundaries. Compared to this, U2-LAN-04 end devices are currently limited to the use in a LAN due to the high-speed signals.
U2-LAN-04 end devices can be paired with KVM-over-IP extenders and switched synchronously or separately via the IP-Control-API. Device class filtering allows special USB classes to be excluded or blocked via the ControlCenter-IP.
- Integration of high-speed USB 2.0 in a KVM-over-IP installation

- Switchable USB™ for switching one-to-one extender pairs
- No drivers required
- Extends transparent USB 2.0 up to 480 Mbit/s, via LAN or point to point (the maximum speed depends strongly on the network configuration, bandwidth and performance)
- Up to 100 m for direct transmission or up to 100 m between network switches via CAT 5e, 6, 7
- Device class filtering to determine permitted USB classes
- Supports all common operating systems
- FCC/CE certification (Class B)
Integrating an IP matrix into a network
In order to use the full functionality of the ControlCenter-IP, this appliance is integrated into the network in addition to other extender systems (CON and CPU).
While the central routing itself is handled via standard network switches, the ControlCenter-IP takes over the logic in the network and optimises the accessibility of all devices among each other by allowing the switching between the CON and CPU modules. The user moves in a high-performance G&D matrix environment while leveraging the benefits of a flexible network.
Powerful and secure navigation through networks via ControlCenter-IP
Since dedicated cabling on the device is no longer required and the system works over the network, transmission reliability plays a very important role. For this reason, we have developed various security mechanisms to increase protection in critical environments. All communication and data transmission via the ControlCenter-IP is encrypted, ensuring a high level of security in critical environments.
The ControlCenter-IP and the end components based on KVM-over-IP extender systems only access the standard interfaces of the computers and therefore require no additional software.
Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
Boot loader, operating system and firmware of the ControlCenter-IP form a Trusted Computing Platform, which is protected from tampering by third parties. Here, an integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM hardware module) with an RSA encryption algorithm and a key length of 2048 bits secures all access and configuration data against spying.
Sensitive information such as login information and passwords are stored as permanently encrypted. Possible modifications of the firmware can be detected early, thus leading to an interruption of the boot process. This prevents manipulation attempts, such as smuggling of a keyboard sniffer.
Targeted redundancy − security by RAID
To protect the rights management and configuration data, the ControlCenter-IP reflects their content on two independent internal SSD storage media that are designed redundantly by a RAID1 network system.
Of course, all information of the rights and configuration management are also backed by unique cryptographic keys.
MatrixGuard for KVM-over-IP
In KVM-over-IP installation the MatrixGuard as an expansion also provides a perfect solution for failure scenarios. If the ControlCenter-IP carrying the role of the database master fails, another ControlCenter-IP can automatically take over the role of the original database master as "backup" or database slave.
Expansion of system size
Due to the flexible system topology, installations can be scaled arbitrarily and expanded easily via standard network elements. The system sizes of the matrix application are easily enabled for this via license key. Using this, the system can then subsequently expand as needed.
Whether intuitive operation or changing scenarios – the ControlCenter-IP provides many control room features
With the innovative CrossDisplay-Switching as part of the TS function (digital matrix system), users can use the mouse to easily switch between channels. 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 keyboard-mouse focus automatically switches to the connected computer. Now users can create a multi-monitor console and need only one keyboard and one mouse to operate all computers. The mouse becomes the ultimate intuitive switching tool.
- Easy switching by using the mouse, in addition to switching between channels using hotkeys or the OSD
- Intuitive operation and more efficiency at the workstation
- Computers with multi head graphics can be included
Scenario switching lets you store the switching condition of one or multiple workplaces or even of the entire system. The selected switching states are saved in a script in the matrix system and can be accessed and executed via the OSD of workplaces assigned with the required rights.
- Individual settings
- Fast switching of several workplaces
- More intuitive operating concepts
- Usability of all commands of the text-based control
- Comprehensive control options
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.
