IHSE Show its Draco Ultra Series at the 2018 NAB Show New York

Built on IHSE’s Draco ultra series extender platform and utilizing the company’s Lici technology, the new Draco 495 series extenders for HDMI 2.0 provides full 4K video distribution for UHD 2160p, 30-bit 4:4:4 signals.

IHSE said the Draco ultra 495 transmitter/receiver set extends 4K (4096x2160 or 3840x2160) video and USB HID peripherals from the host system up to 10 kilometers over single-mode fiber. Additionally, they can be integrated as part of the Draco ultra series KVM switch fabric to share connections between HDMI 2.0 or DisplayPort devices.

The Draco ultra 495 series extenders' visually lossless technology delivers exceptional graphics and video playback performance with the computer centrally located in a machine room via a single duplex LC-LC fiber-optic cable. These extenders also support audio transmission via the HDMI interface.

Also available are optional Draco vario add-on modules for digital audio input and output as well as data signals such as USB 2.0 and RS-232. For a direct video access in the server room, the CPU (TX) includes a local output to connect a control monitor. At the same time, there is a local input on the CON unit (RX) to connect a locally connected source (switchable).

For mission-critical and 24/7 operations such as broadcast, 3D design, visualization and military command-and-control environments, the units can be installed in chassis assemblies for redundant power and redundant path distribution.
