G&D at BroadcastAsia 2018

KVM experts present expanded IP portfolio for APAC's broadcast professionals.

G&D introduce matrix for KVM-over-IP™

G&D introduce matrix for KVM-over-IP™

Under the motto "Capture the future", Asia's broadcast professionals will meet in Singapore from 26-28 June 2018 to find out more about the latest products and trends of the future. With their matrix switch for KVM-over-IP™, German KVM manufacturers Guntermann und Drunck present such a future-oriented device. The new ControlCenter-IP enables distributed switching of computer signals via standard IP-based networks on layer 3.

Following the portfolio expansion with extender systems based on KVM-over-IP™, the IP-based matrix now offers double flexibility, so that even the largest installations can be operated over IP. In combination with IP extender systems, the ControlCenter-IP forms a powerful KVM-over-IP matrix that enables the switching of all connected transmitter and receiver modules and extends the usability and flexibility of broadcast applications. Encryption of video, keyboard, mouse and control data with AES-128 ensures secure and reliable operation.

While network switches and routers transmit IP packets from A to B, the ControlCenter-IP takes over the central system logic and optimizes the accessibility of all devices by enabling switching between transmitter and receiver modules (CONs and CPUs). Operators are able to benefit from a high-performance G&D matrix environment while at the same time using the advantages of a flexible network.

Due to the flexible system topology, installations can be scaled as required and extended via standard network elements. Transmission takes place with CAT cabling via standard IP-based networks on layer 3 and via a Gigabit Ethernet. 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.

Pixel-perfect video transmission

DisplayPort 1.1 signals are processed pixel-perfectly and with very good hand-eye coordination. The system also supports video resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz or 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz. Coming soon will be more devices for DVI, dual link and DisplayPort 1.2. Thus, the ControlCenter-IP will support the extending and switching of 4K @ 60 Hz. Based on G&D’s proven mix & match concept, the new devices will also be combinable and compatible with each other to ensure maximum flexibility and expandability.

Signal transmission is compressed, lossless, and almost latency-free, whereby G&D do not reduce the sharpness during transmission, but use their in-house compression method, High Dynamic Image Processing, in the latest development stage, level 3. It enables the lossless transmission of video signals and provides optimum image quality.

Proven variety of functions

The popular control room features of the ControlCenter series have also been integrated into the new KVM-over-IP™ matrix. They include functionalities such as monitoring and SNMP, a scripting function and scenario switching, the push-get function or CrossDisplay-Switching for the intuitive operation at multi-monitor workstations.

In addition to their new KVM products for KVM-over-IP™, G&D will be showcasing other powerful solutions from their classic KVM portfolio at BroadcastAsia and providing comprehensive technical consulting for individual projects. G&D offer the broadest KVM portfolio available on the market, which is compatible and combinable with each other. This and the new ControlCenter-IP will be on display at G&D's booth 4H3-01 at BroadcastAsia 2018, 26-28 June 2018.
