The PersonalWorkplace-Controller: the all-rounder for the workplace
The PersonalWorkplace-Controller revolutionizes workplace flexibility by seamlessly integrating multiple video signals on a single large monitor or multiple displays. Resolutions of up to 5K60 are supported, allowing users to configure their workplace according to their individual requirements, resulting in increased productivity and ergonomics. In addition to the clear display of all processes on just one monitor or multiple monitors, all required data can be accessed simultaneously and flexibly.

Compatibility with traditional broadcast setups is ensured by the integration of HD-SDI through the PersonalWorkplace-CPU. This allows users to maintain their current infrastructure while expanding their capabilities with modern digital video and streaming sources. This flexibility is particularly valuable for broadcasters who rely on established workflows and equipment, as their operations can be improved without the need for costly upgrades or overhauls.

Users can also optimize their workspace by reducing clutter and minimizing distractions by consolidating multiple sources on a single monitor or multiple monitors. This streamlined approach not only increases efficiency, but also improves collaboration and decision-making by providing a clear and comprehensive overview of all relevant content.

In addition, the PersonalWorkplace-Controller also offers the flexibility to stream content to different output devices so that important information can be accessed from anywhere, whether on a laptop, smartphone, or tablet. This versatility is particularly beneficial in environments where mobility is essential, such as newsrooms or live event productions.

VisionXS: KVM innovation in pocket size
The VisionXS series from G&D offers a comprehensive range of functions in a convenient pocket format. The high-end product line of matrix-compatible extenders is being expanded with new variants to provide the right product for every application and thus meet all requirements. In addition to the already available DP-UHR variants for resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 at 60 Hz, the new DP-HR variants for resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 at 60 Hz are now also available. The manufacturer relies on its proven lossless compression technology bluedec™, which enables authentic and detailed video experiences.

A new addition to the portfolio is the VisionXS extender with two DisplayPort connections for dual-head applications. These allow up to two monitors to be operated simultaneously, ensuring greater ergonomics and flexibility at the workplace. The use of just one transmission connection also minimizes cabling costs.

The VisionXS-IP product range is expanded further with additional variants now supporting Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). This new addition enables powering the device through the transmission port, enhancing reliability by providing dual safety against failures. By connecting the device via both the main power supply and the network cable, redundancy is ensured in the event of a power supply failure. This dual power supply ensures optimal operational safety and reliability for continuous operation.

Like all our products, the new devices are fully compatible with existing models. The comprehensive compatibility enables tailored solutions for any application. This significantly increases planning security and enables installations to be expanded swiftly and easily at a later point in time.
