Black Box is a leading provider of high-performance KVM, Audio/Video signal processing & distribution, and networking for the broadcast, media and AV industries. As a solution consultant, we are helping our customers to combine future-proof technologies into a tailored, workflow efficient solution, driving user efficiency and collaboration throughout all production stages.

Our KVM matrix switching and extension solutions for 4K video, SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, digital/analogue audio and peripheral signals offer highly reliable distribution, extension, and instantaneous switching of high-quality signals over IP or proprietary networks. This enables efficient, long and short-distance transmission and processing of signals, and provides a great degree of flexibility that meets the demands of editing suites as well as playout centres and control rooms.

Combining the best out of a large portfolio of technology products, our solutions improve collaboration and productivity, lower operating costs and TCO, enable optimal pre- and post-production workflow and facilitate live production and mobile broadcast operations (OBV). Applications for our solutions include Master-/Studio Control Room, OBV, Broadcast Operation/Control, Playout, as well as Real Time Graphics and Post Production edit suites.

Black Box VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) and Virtual Machine connectivity solutions meet the current evolving trend of migrating to virtualised server infrastructures or combine physical workstations, servers and virtual servers without sacrificing desktop user experience. Our KVM-over-IP, video processing and encoder/decoder solutions enable remote sharing of content, real-time information or even switching complete control rooms to a remote location (e.g. fail-save).
