The move to IP has some engineers scratching their heads for solutions. No need to panic. This week we highlight articles from consultant Gary Olson and broadcast engineer Ned Soseman. Each author offers advice on making that important move to IP, offering their thoughts on moving forward.
Black Box has unveiled Boxilla, a premier enterprise-level KVM and AV/IT system management platform, featuring a comprehensive and centralized command center, which provides unparalleled performance, ease of use and security.
Over the past several decades, KVM technology has helped move servers — along with their noise, heat and space consumption — out of the control room. It also enabled many to access multiple physical servers, sharing resources in a “virtual access” manner.
IHSE has announced the launch of the Draco OPS+ KVM extender for use in displays equipped with the Next Generation Open Pluggable Specification (OPS+) slot. The extender offers convenience and cost-saving to professional display installations.
DisplayPort is quickly becoming the preferred display connection technology. Its high bandwidth supporting up to 4K video resolutions and the latching connector makes it an ideal choice in any AV application, but the distance limitation can be a major challenge.
IP-based technologies are becoming mainstream in broadcast and production applications and are quickly taking the place of traditional SDI configurations. This is especially the case when it comes to KVM (keyboard, video and mouse). High performance IP-based networks enable KVM solutions to bring real time, accurate video operation to users,
The 10-port DCX1000, model is available with a small but equally powerful digital cross rail. The additional device provides a quick, safe and cost-effective switching of HD videos, audio and USB signals and transmits all video content without any compression or delay.
In the last article, we looked at the monitoring packet delay in real-time. In this article, we continue the theme of looking at a network from a broadcast engineers’ point of view so they can better communicate with the IT department, and look at FEC (Forward Error Correction).
Copyright infringement is a big problem for broadcasters transmitting Hollywood block buster films. Compromising film revenues, unscrupulous staff can easily copy films to USB disc drives and distribute them illegally on BitTorents and other public distribution systems.
