G​&D Present IT In Control Rooms At ISE2020

German KVM manufacturers Guntermann & Drunck point to 4K over IP and virtualisation and migration into the cloud as key trends for 2020.

At ISE 2020, G&D will be showing both classic KVM systems and KVM-over-IP, “so that every visitor will be able to experience relevant KVM installations for control rooms and see how their projects would benefit from the best of both worlds” the company explains.

Together with a series of IP extenders, the ControlCenter-IP forms a matrix with which any connected operator station can be granted access to any remote computer. While the network infrastructure takes over the transport of KVM-over-IP using network switches and routers, the ControlCenter-IP contributes the logic. Transmission takes place compressed via CAT cabling or optical fibers via standard IP-based networks on layer 3, with a data transmission rate of up to 1 Gbit/s per line. Being able to use standard network components makes G&D’s KVM-over-IP particularly interesting because existing IT installations can be scaled more easily and cost-effectively, it claims. Almost all components are plug and play devices, making it even easier and more comfortable to install and operate the system.

The ControlCenter-IP system uses the in-house compression technology HDIP. This allows the loss-less transmission of video signals with a resolution of 4K at 60Hz. In combination with IP extender solutions for DP1.2a and DP1.1a as well as single link and dual link DVI, a wide range of video signals and resolutions up to real 4K over IP is supported.

Like all other G&D systems, the ControlCenter-IP can be integrated into typical AV equipment. A relevant installation and the integration of the ControlCenter-IP in a video wall application including media control will be demonstrated live at the G&D booth at ISE.

The DP1.2-VisionXG system extends the access to computers over distances up to 10,000 m. As a KVM extender, DP1.2-VisionXG extends high-resolution 4K and 8K video signals at 60 Hz – pixel-perfect, uncompressed, without any loss and latency-free. Transmission takes place over optical fibres. In this way, the system enables users to operate their computers remotely in real time.

With their RemoteAccess-CPU scheduled for 2020, G&D are picking up on the increasing virtualisation of industrial automation and the migration of contents into the cloud since the device will enable the seamless integration of virtual machines into KVM installations. The new modules facilitate the design of hybrid systems containing real and virtual infrastructures that are extremely intuitive to use. After appropriate configuration, any number of virtual sources can be accessed directly via KVM matrix system. Operators can select the source they want to switch to from a standardised overview, regardless of whether the computer is available in the server room or in the cloud.

“We continue to observe the trend that AV installations are becoming larger and more interconnected. This requires the systems to be even more reliable and powerful," explains Jochen Bauer, Head of Sales and Marketing.
