Apantac To Showcase KVM Over IP At IBC

Apantac will highlight new KVM over IP for openGear and KVM over IP extenders with fiber at IBC.

Apantac said its the first of its kind solution for the most modular and scalable KVM over IP solution available on the market today.

When combined with the Apantac KVM over IP receiver and an off-the-shelf Gigabit Ethernet switch it functions as an expandable KVM switch to allow multiple users to have access to multiple computers.

The new OG-KVM-IP-Tx card for the openGear chassis brings two major benefits. First, rather than using individual standalone transmission boxes for each source computer in the technical operations room, up to 10 OG-KVM-IP-Tx cards can be installed in a single openGear 2 RU chassis using a single power supply.

Second, the cards all have a common configuration, control and monitoring interface via the openGear Dashboard software.

Broadcasters and system integrators can also mix and match different cards from Apantac and multiple manufacturers in a single openGear frame, depending on their application and needs.
