The DP1.2-VisionXG, a new KVM extender system, enables the remote operation of systems and offers uncompressed transmission of DisplayPort 1.2 signals.
The increase in 4K is also increasingly bringing the use of high performance computers to broadcast workflows, which means lots of heat and noise. In response, G&D developed the system to safely remove the necessary computer equipment into central technology rooms.
The new DP1.2-VisionXG offers fibre optic connection between the KVM transmitter at the computer to the KVM receiver placed at the workstation. Despite distances of up to 10,000m between computer and workstation, users can operate their systems in a 1:1 connection without any latency, claims the company.
Users benefit from more space as well as a cleaner working environment that is free from heat and noises emitting from computers, says the company.
To ensure high video quality, the new DP1.2-VisionXG system transmits video signals transparent, meaning pixel by pixel and without any compression. All details remain visible even when it comes to high-resolution 4K images at the full refresh rate of 60 Hz and across the entire transmission distance.
In addition to the basic functions, the KVM extenders are combined with additional safety features. Among these are the Screen-Freeze function, which kicks in when losing the image source to let the user continue to temporarily operate the system since the last available image is frozen.
There’s also a comprehensive monitoring tool, where the system can be monitored via network interfaces either actively via web interface, or passively via SNMP.
