Black Box Showcased ZeroU DVI Transmitter for Emerald Unified KVM Platform

Black Box announced the new Emerald ZeroU DVI transmitter for the Emerald Unified KVM platform at NAB 2019.

A little bigger than a smartphone, Black Box said the compact ZeroU transmitter works with the Emerald SE receiver to give users a desktop experience anywhere on a TCP/IP network — with actual hardware housed in a corporate data center or in the cloud.

For facilities with limited rack space, this little transmitter fits in tight spaces to give users advanced KVM functionality. With dimensions of 7(w) x 15.5(l) x 2.5(h) cm, the ZeroU device is ideal for applications in which space is limited or costly.

Supporting visually lossless full HD DVI video up to 1920 x 1200 and requiring less than 40 Mbps bandwidth for 1080p video, the transmitter brings high-performance connectivity to broadcast and postproduction trucks.

The ZeroU device can function as a basic point-to-point extender supporting space-saving remote desktop connectivity. Alternatively, it can be used with other types of Emerald transmitters in a KVM matrix switching setup that addresses all the unique connectivity requirements of a particular facility or application.

In conjunction with the Emerald SE receiver, the ZeroU enables remote desktop connectivity to physical PCs, servers and video sources, as well as virtual desktops hosted on servers or in the cloud.

Like all Emerald devices, the ZeroU transmitter can be managed by Boxilla, the KVM network management system from Black Box.
