DVI-Vision-IP – extends single-link DVI signals over standard IP-based networks on Layer 3

The KVM-over-IP extender system DVI-Vision-IP extends the following signals:

  • Single-link DVI video
  • Keyboard/mouse (USB and PS/2)
  • Audio + RS232
  • USB HID Generic

The system processes single-link DVI image data pixel-perfectly and with very good hand-eye coordination. The maximum possible image resolution corresponds to a pixel rate between 25MPixel/s and 165MPixel/s. ignals are transmitted using CAT cabling or optical fibers as well as over IP-based networks on layer 3 – even across network boundaries.

The DVI-Vision-IP system consists of a computer module (transmitter) and a console module (receiver) and allows users to operate their computers from great distances. By means of manual bandwidth management, the transmission can be adapted to a wide range of bandwidth requirements. Video, keyboard, mouse and control data is encrypted with AES-128.

Operating principle

Extenders of the DVI-Vision-IP series use G&D’s KVM-over-IP™ technology to transmit signals. The transmission is based on IP networks over gigabit Ethernet (OSI model, layer 3). The devices include with a network interface for transmitting data, WebIF, configuration, monitoring, SNMP and updates. They are also equipped with a management network interface that provides all of the above functions in addition to data transmission.

For monitoring, DVI-Vision-IP uses G&D’s proven monitoring and SNMP technology. The system can be configured by via web interface or OSD. Due to predefined IP addresses, plug & play is supported for both console and computer modules. Therefore, it couldn’t be easier to use existing network infrastructures or CAT cables or optical fibres in a 1:1 connection to put the modules into operation. Within the KVM-over-IP product family, the different extender variants are compatible with each other, allowing any mixmatching of different video interfaces on console and computer modules.

G&D’s KVM-over-IP technology can be used extremely flexible. The KVM-over-IP extenders can be operated in a matrix mode using an additional control unit, the ControlCenter-IP. This allows the distribution and sharing of signals within a LAN infrastructure. Users can also access their systems within the LAN network regardless of actual ranges. However, data transmission with KVM-over-IP technology is not compatible with classic KVM extenders from G&D.

Screen freeze function

If the receiver loses the video signal due to a broken connection or a problem with the computer‘s graphics card, the Screen freeze function „freezes“ the image last displayed on the monitor. This status is highlighted by a red semi-transparent frame. The function is automatically cancelled when the display receives an active video signal.

Monitoring

With the Monitoring function, you can auto-output device status messages to Syslog servers or via SNMP. The web interface lets you monitor the device manually.

The monitoring function of the DP1.2-Vision-IP queries the following values:

•    Status power supply unit (on/off)
•    Status temperature threshold device (in/over limit)
•    Status connection cables (ok/nok)
•    Status computer (on/off)
•    Status image signal graphics card computer (available/not available)
•    Status network
•    Fan monitoring
•    Status SFP modules (fiber variant)
•    Status interfaces transmitter and receiver
•    Freeze status
•    Type of display (local and remote)
•    Proactive monitoring of device status
•    Event reporting function (syslog or SNMP traps)

The video shows you the differences between classic KVM and KVM-over-IP and the challenges and advantages of IP transmission – explained on the example of KVM-over-IP extenders.
