4K capable KVM for IP environments10 September 2016
An in-house developed compression algorithm makes Guntermann & Drunck’s new DP1.2-Vision KVM extenders require less bandwidth to transmit signals than the previous XG version. However, according to the company, they can still provide clear and visually lossless images without any latency. DP1.2-Vision supports DisplayPort 1.2, and thus resolutions up to 4K at 60Hz.
Guntermann & Drunck claimed the advantage of the reduced bandwidth is the improved possibilities of further processing. Thus, the extenders can be switched via G&D’s digital matrix systems. This way, if required, hundreds of workplaces are able to access an equally high number of systems.
The company said UHD applications will also benefit from the full range of the many G&D matrix functions such as CrossDisplay-Switching, the integration in media control systems or the
Thus, it claimed, large and distributed installations can be easily implemented thanks to G&D’s KVM matrix grid.
G&D now also offers a KVM extender that allows access over IP structures. The new DP-Vision-IP transmits signals via G&D’s KVM-over-IP. Combinations with other G&D systems are also possible, thus allowing complex installations with worldwide access. The German manufacturer said that it relies on the most recent encryption methods and comprehensive access protection.
