IHSE reports that it has sold its first 576 port Draco tera KVM matrix switch (K480-576) at IBC, in a deal with an estimated value of $500,000. The customer who ordered the K480-576 is an undisclosed “major broadcaster in the US.” According to IHSE, a current studio upgrade required the expansion of an existing installation, and the new 576 port Draco tera KVM matrix switch “provides a hybrid (Cat X and fibre) KVM infrastructure with no performance limitations.”
It offers Mix & Match functionality to allow switching freely between Cat X extenders and fibre optic extenders. The installation is scheduled for completion by 2016. Pictured: IHSE managing director Dr Enno Littmann (left) and US managing director Chani Shah.
