The ControlCenter-IP, ControlCenter-Digital and the ControlCenter-Compact: G&D present three digital matrix systems.
KVM manufacturers Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) will be presenting Its latest innovation for transmission over IP – a KVM matrix for KVM-over-IP at InterBEE in Tokyo.
“Whether transmission via IP structures or classically dedicated, whether compact or modular, G&D will bring the best of both worlds to Japan,” the company states.
G&D’s ControlCenter-IP enables the extension and distributed switching of computer signals via IP networks. In combination with G&D's IP extenders, the ControlCenter-IP forms a matrix system. While the network infrastructure takes over the transport of KVM-over-IP by using network switches and routers, the ControlCenter-IP contributes the logic. On top of this, the unit transmission length is almost unlimited since two active network components can be connected to each other over a length of up to 100 m via CAT or up to 10,000 m via optical fibers.
The ControlCenter-IP supports numerous signals thus providing solutions for DVI single- and dual-link, DP1.1 and DP1.2, including real [email protected] Hz over IP. Even at high resolutions, the system is claimed to deliver optimal, pixel-perfect and latency-free image quality for the best possible hand-eye coordination.
The modular ControlCenter-Digital matrix and the compact ControlCenter-Compact series both offer a wide range of functions and signals, including loss-free transmission and switching of video signals up to 4K at 60 Hz.
The ControlCenter-Compact comes in six expansion levels providing between 8 and 176 ports and is compatible with the ControlCenter-Digital as well as all end devices. The ControlCenter-Digital matrix system is available with 80, 160 or 288 dynamic ports.
