IHSE Adds Dual-Head/Dual-Link DVI Extenders for Draco Ultra Series KVM Systems

At NAB, IHSE announced new high-performance models to its Draco ultra fiber and Cat-X extenders for Draco vario ultra KVM matrix systems. Known as the 492 Series, the new extenders support either dual-link DVI up to 2560 x 2048 at 60 hertz or two single-link DVI sources up to 1920 x 1200 at 60 hertz. The extenders also accommodate USB 2.0, digital audio, analog audio, RS-232 and RS-422 signals with the optional upgrade card.

The first IHSE DVI extenders to support both DVI dual-link and DVI dual-head in the same plug-in extender module, the 492 Series allows easy connectivity via point-to-point connections or through KVM matrix switching. By using a standard DMS-59 cable adapter included with the units, users can easily configure the units to support one 2560 x 2048 display or two 1920 x 1200 displays.

IHSE also launched the 444 Series Draco keyboard, a freely programmable plug-and-play device that makes it possible to connect a keyboard, mouse and keypad to a KVM system through a single USB port without needing an additional HID extension. The remaining USB port on the extender CON unit allows simultaneous connection of another USB HID device.

Created for environments where users need to automate multiple tasks under a single macro, such as professional audio mixers, graphics designers or situational awareness analysis in command and control rooms, the heavy-duty 444 mechanical keyboard is designed to accommodate up to 50 programmable push-button keys that can record up to 16 commands per button. It has a solid anodized aluminum housing and keys that can handle up to 50 million keystrokes.

IHSE also announced an advanced technology partnership with EVS to enhance live production workflows for EVS XT series servers and XFile3 gateway and removable storage systems. As part of this partnership, IHSE has developed a specialized KVM packaging concept based on the Draco tera compact series of KVM matrix systems that supports both current and future connectivity requirements for EVS systems.
