IHSE’s Draco Ultra DP Now Supports 4K At 30-Bit, 4:4:4

IHSE has announced the Draco ultra DP, the first 4K DisplayPort KVM extender with a 60Hz refresh rate in full color depth.

IHSE said the device constitutes a new generation of digital KVM signal extension. The innovative Lightweight Image (Lici) codec was developed in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits. The coding technology ensures the highest video resolutions with outstanding color accuracy (deep color-ready).

The Draco ultra DP extender allows users to operate CPUs from devices at a remotely located workstation — including DisplayPort video devices, keyboards and pointing devices — over a single duplex fiber cable.

The extender transfers fully digital video in 4K resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2160 at a 60Hz refresh rate and full color depth (30-bit, 4:4:4). The KVM extender also supports audio transmission via the DisplayPort interface, eliminating the need for additional audio modules and enabling playback of the audio signal on monitors with integrated loudspeakers.

It is also possible to integrate optional Draco vario upgrade modules for digital audio input and output and for data signals such as USB 2.0 and RS-232.
