G&D Launches New Workplace Module With Multi-viewing Functionality

Guntermann & Drunck (G&D), presents its latest product: the DynamicWorkplace-CON. This innovative workplace solution has been specially developed to meet the challenges of process and information control in demanding environments. The integration significantly reduces the physical workload of users while improving response times for critical decisions.

DynamicWorkplace-CON: Multiviewing function for maximum productivity
The new DynamicWorkplace-CON is a workplace module (CON) that has been specially developed for integration into KVM matrix installations and offers the unique advantage that different computer modules (CPU) or sources can be flexibly arranged in a larger working area on one or up to four screens. This expansion provides space for a completely intuitive way of working, streamlines processes by operating on a larger surface, and enables the design of efficient workflows. Thus, the DynamicWorkplace-CON supports complex activities and processes in control rooms or command centers. The CON module’s multi-viewing function allows up to eight computer sources to be displayed and operated simultaneously on up to four monitors. Users can adjust the arrangement of individual computer signals in real time, providing unparalleled flexibility and control. The new product’s window manager enables intuitive operation by allowing the free positioning and handling of individual windows. Additionally, it is possible to position monitors as desired and move windows across monitor boundaries. The DynamicWorkplace-CON allows for the consolidation of multiple CON modules and their associated monitors, resulting in an efficient, clutter-free work environment. This enhancement contributes to making the KVM installation particularly user-friendly in demanding environments.

Improved user experience
The wider use of displays with higher resolutions opens up new options for designing the user interface environment. They enable users to work on a larger surface and help to make work processes more efficient and increase productivity. Multi-monitor workplaces can be designed more flexibly with the DynamicWorkplace-CON by combining different video and computer sources on a single monitor or multiple displays. The intuitive window manager ensures full control over the arrangement and operation of the individual windows, while the ControlPanel serves as a central operating element and enables quick and intuitive access to windows, computer modules as well as presets or layouts. Thanks to its convenient operation, the DynamicWorkplace-CON creates a user-friendly working environment that meets individual requirements and significantly increases efficiency and productivity.

Highly efficient compression technology
The outstanding image quality and limitless flexibility in arranging sources provide significant added value by ergonomically designing the active work and monitoring areas on larger screens. With the DynamicWorkplace-CON, up to four monitors can be used simultaneously with a resolution of up to 4K @ 60Hz, guaranteeing an impressive visual performance for demanding applications. The console device is distinguished by the integration of the proven, lossless compression technology bluedec™, which enables an authentic, pixel-perfect video experience. In addition, audio signals, serial signals and USB devices from any source can be individually assigned and used.

With this significant expansion of its portfolio, G&D is responding to the ever-increasing complexity of control rooms and command and control centers. The German manufacturer introduces an integrated multiviewing tool with the DynamicWorkplace-CON, enhancing its comprehensive and interoperable portfolio. The availability of the new DynamicWorkplace-CON is planned for the third quarter of this year.
