Printouts of any documentation (manuals, installation guides) are provided in the package contents of the devices.

Manuals are also available as download.

A detailed description of where you can find the serial number and device ID of your DVICenter is given in this blog post.

This installation requires one of our matrix switch systems.

Please contact our sales team. They will personally advise you regarding your particular requirements, the variety and efficiency of individual systems and other special features.

CATCenter matrix switches are differentiated according to the number of ports at the basic devices and the supported signals.

The low-price matrix solution containing the CATCenter X2 or CompactCenter X2 meets the requirements of smaller installations. Two users can access up to 16 (CATCenter X2 up to 1024) computers.

The NEO series is best suited for large and growing installations, but can also be employed if you require access to the network and want to choose the console type.

Both CATCenter NEO and CompactCenter X2 provide two network ports for configuring and authenticating (CompactCenter X2: also KVM-over-IP) the devices.

For more information about differences and similarities, please contact our sales team.

You can use the configuration interface of the CATCenter NEO4/8/16 or CompactCenterX2 for switching IP commands and configuring devices over network.

KVM-over-IP for the CATCenter additionally requires the UCON-IP-NEO, which provides an IP channel for each device.

The transmission interfaces of target and console ports require a 1:1 connection. When connected to the data network, they must not be connected to hubs, switches, routers, etc.

Yes. This requires the HardBoot CCX expansion, which must be connected to the central unit of a matrix switch. Use the configuration of the matrix to assign the computers to the power outlets of the HardBoot.

To autostart the computers with the Power-ON, their BIOS values need to be adjusted accordingly (depending on computer and BIOS).

Yes. Each image requires a target module, and, if necessary, an additional power pack if the computer has not enough USB ports available.

The user side requires one UCON for each image. Thanks to the TS function (TradeSwitch), you only need one keyboard/mouse at the desk. That way, the individual signals are combined to create one logical console.

Please contact our sales team for more information.

Yes. When combined with UCON-IP-NEO or CompactCenter X2 and the native GNU-Linux or Java client, various platforms can access the matrix over IP.

Please contact our sales team for more information.

No. Since G&D matrix switches only access hardware, installing additional software is not required.

Accessing matrix systems over IP requires the installation of the Java client.
