IHSE’s Draco tera KVM Switch Used At Texas High School TV Station

IHSE Draco tera 16-port matrix switch is a core element in a newly upgraded broadcast facility for NHSTV, a Texas-based television station run entirely by high school students.

By allowing the students and their instructor to control multiple computers from one or more keyboards, video monitors and mice, the IHSE Draco tera switch brings flexibility to the NHSTV broadcast operation.

Station NHSTV is part of the school district's Creative Media Production (CMP) academy, giving students an immersive experience and introduction to professional broadcasting. In its 10th year at Northwest High School in suburban Fort Worth, the CMP academy focuses on television broadcast, filmmaking, graphic design and illustration.

The new installation quadruples the size of the control room. The 16-port Draco tera KVM (keyboard-video-mouse) switch ties together every workstation and a separate rack room, giving the NHSTV crew the flexibility to manage all seven workstations from six different user locations in the studio.
