IHSE to Introduce Draco DVI Fiber Extenders at NAB New York

IHSE will introduce the Draco ultra 492 Series of Cat-X and fiber extenders for DVI-D, USB, audio and RS-232 at NAB New York.

IHSE said the 492 series, which includes dual-head and dual-link models, uses the Lightweight Image (Lici) codec, developed in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits.

The dual-head model, the Draco ultra Dual-Head KVM extender, makes it possible to connect two DVI monitors over a single Cat-X or fiber cable, saving the expense of a second extender and reducing cabling cost and installation effort.

When used in conjunction with KVM matrix systems, the Draco ultra Dual-Head KVM extender saves matrix ports. Its sister product, the Draco ultra Dual-Link KVM extender, allows users to transmit DVI signals to a single monitor up to 4K resolution. Extension of signals requires a single data cable.

The 492 Series extenders are compatible with regular single-head/single-link extenders so that consoles can access single-head/single-link CPU units instantaneously.

Also at the show, IHSE will show the Draco ultra 493 Series DisplayPort extenders, which enable CPU operation from a remotely located workstation (including a DisplayPort 1.1 monitor, a keyboard and a pointing device) over a single fiber connection.

The 493 Series extenders support the transfer of digital video in 4K resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2160 at a real 30 hertz refresh rate and full color depth (24-bit, 4:4:4), as well as audio transmission via the DisplayPort interface.

It is also possible to integrate optional Draco vario upgrade modules for digital audio input and output, as well as data signals such as USB 2.0 and RS232.
