G&D KVM Systems: High Video Resolutions and Smart Solutions at IBC 2017

At IBC 2017, Guntermann and Drunck will showcase a range of new products to conference visitors. These include KVM solutions to support high-resolution 4K and 8K video signals – pixel-perfect, latency-free and fail-safe. Among the next generation solutions on display, will be the KVM extender DP1.2-VisionXG, which transmits up to 8K resolution at 60 Hz – uncompressed, loss-less and without any latency.

Guntermann & Drunck to show KVM systems with pixel-perfect, uncompressed transmission of high-resolution DisplayPort videos over distances up to 10,000m. The device is available in variants with up to four video channels, even video resolutions up to 8K can be extended over long distances. The DP1.2-VisionXG uses optical fibre for the transmission of signals, which provides enough bandwidth for uncompressed, high-resolution DisplayPort 1.2 video signals, keyboard/mouse, RS232, USB2.0, and audio.

Switching 4K resolutions via matrix systems

Another highlight will be the demonstration of the new DP1.2-Vision extender generation, which is fully compatible with G&D’s digital matrix switches and allows the extension, switching and distribution of 4K video through these matrix systems. The KVM extender system provides pixel-perfect images and uses the in-house HDIP compression technology in the latest development stage, Level 3. This compression mode allows the loss-less transmission of video signals with a resolution of 4K at 60Hz. Thus, the systems require less bandwidth to transmit signals – but still provide crystal-clear images and latency-free operation.
