Guntermann & Drunck Show KVM-over-IP For Esports

KVM manufacturers will showcase the latest KVM trends for esports and broadcast professionals at NAB Show New York and SMPTE Los Angeles.

The company says that KVM systems (keyboard, video, mouse) make the equipment available at remote producer workstations or at various e-sports venues, where images are displayed in a high-resolution and without any latency. Therefore, it states, you can use KVM to form a strong IT backbone offering producers and technicians enormous flexibility in operating and maintaining the connected computer systems.

G&D will also display ControlCenter-IP, a matrix system for KVM-over-IP, which enables distributed switching of computer signals over standard IP-based networks. With its lossless video quality and near-zero latency, the system “completely redefines the flexibility and scalability of demanding broadcast and e-sports applications,” it claims.

The IP-based system consists of the central ControlCenter-IP unit and a series of IP extension modules that form a powerful matrix for KVM-over-IP transmission. The system offers transmission via CAT or fiber optic cables over standard IP-based 1Gbit/s networks.
