The future of KVM via G&D27 August 2012
Describing the announcement as “a step towards the future of KVM”, Guntermann & Drunck will unveil the ControlCenter-Digital, a modular KVM matrix switch for digital video.
Flexibility and the ability to adapt to almost any environment have become essential, according to the company; to meet these demands, provide investment security and keep pace with technological advances, modularity is becoming the order of the day.
G&D says that its new KVM matrix switch is the latest example of this approach. The system’s modular set-up means that transmission cards can be CAT or fibre or both and all dynamic ports can be used as either input or output.
The system supports a substantial range of signals such as digital HD video, USB and PS/2 keyboard and mouse, audio, USB 2.0 transparent and RS232. Because size often does matter, said the company, the system has up to 288 ports (160 and 80 versions are in development) that can be cascaded in up to three levels. This means, claims G&D, that it can connect with an almost infinite number of computers and users. – Ian McMurray
