Black Box Introduces InvisaPC to Connect Users with Physical and Virtual Machines

At NAB, Black Box introduced the next generation of InvisaPC, allowing broadcast control rooms to reap all the benefits of virtualizing workflows in the cloud.

Black Box said the versatile system enables point-to-point KVM extension and a transition from small unmanaged matrices to enterprise-level managed matrix switching KVM systems. By virtualizing applications, networks can be scaled to an unlimited number of devices, improving service levels and overall system availability and enhancing protection against potential cyberattacks.

The next generation of InvisaPC features faster switching times, while increasing the scalability and flexibility of the platform. With support for VMware virtual machines and connections over the PCoIP protocol, InvisaPC makes the migration to virtualization painless. Even if it isn't needed now, it will be eventually.

InvisaPC enables scaling of access infinitely and gradually, as needed — across buildings and campuses using an existing network infrastructure, and even across cities over the Internet — with switching speeds of less than one-half second.
