Uniting all the functions of KVM extenders and KVM switches as well as monitoring and management functions in one system, the ControlCenter-Digital (CCD) digital KVM matrix from Guntermann & Drunck enables access to all computers independently from any network or operating system whether in TV or broadcast stations, post production, video editing, control rooms, studios, technical operating rooms, desk workplaces or server rooms. And: when using optical fibre, says G&D, users are able to access their computers in a 1:1 connection even over distances up to 10,000 metres.
The ControlCenter-Digital matrix also provides numerous variants of user modules and console modules. Connected in any combination, these modules are ready to adapt to any individual requirements, G&D says: thus, combining and transmitting signals like VGA, DVI, DisplayPort, optical fibre, CAT, USB, RS232, audio or PS/2 has never been easier.
For the first time at this year’s IBC, G&D is presenting modules to transmit DisplayPort signals in high resolutions using the matrix. The components enable resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz and even Ultra HD resolutions up to 3840 x 2160p at a reduced refresh rate of 30Hz
