GDNA Shows KVM-over-IP Matrix at SMPTE

The North American subsidiary of German KVM manufacturer Guntermann & Drunck will be at the 2018 SMPTE exhibition with a full range of extenders, switches and matrix systems for computer control and connectivity of broadcast equipment. Among established products, G&D North America will be highlighting the new ControlCenter-IP matrix.

G&D North America (GDNA) supplies KVM (keyboard video mouse) technology to the studio, post-production, outside broadcast and radio transmission sectors, all of which are embracing IP. The ControlCenter-IP is a matrix that allows computer signals to be extended and switched in a distributed fashion over IP networks. In addition to this the switching function can operate using n:m connections.

ControlCenter-IP provides transmission logic to the carriage of KVM-over-IP packets using conventional network switches and routers. It is able to work in a range of signals and formats for single and dual-link DVI, DP1.1 and DP1.2. This delivers true 4k at 60Hz over IP, with high pixel quality and latency-free images. Other features include: monitoring and SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), script capability, scenario switching, push-get collaborative working and interfacing to video walls with CrossDisplay-Switching.

The new product is also able to run with classic KVM connectivity in additon to KVM-over-IP. There are now six new expansion stages for the ControlCener-Compact range of matrixes, featuring proprietary HDIP compression for lossless video transmission in 4k@60Hz resolution.
