Headquartered in Siegen in the North Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany, Guntermann & Drunck was founded in 1985 to develop hardware to support software-training sessions. Since then the company has gone on to become a leading manufacturer of digital and analogue KVM (keyboard video mouse) systems, which are used widely in studios, OB trucks, control rooms and mobile transmission units.
The first product developed by founders Udo Guntermann and Martin Drunck was the Video-Net, which was used to switch the monitor content of a central training computer to any other display. The company's first KVM Switch appeared in 1991 and was designed for extending, distributing and switching computer signals. Guntermann & Drunck KVM extender systems are often used in broadcasting to move noisy computers out of areas such as control rooms, which traditionally need to be quiet, into apparatus rooms nearby. These systems are able to transmit a variety of signals, including those for keyboard, video, mouse, audio, RS232 and USB.
Today’s systems can support high image quality with resolutions of up to 4K in the standard and up to [email protected] for special applications. All kind of broadcast input devices can also be fitted.
