G&D Brings New KVM Solution To NAB


GER: Guntermann & Drunck will present its KVM products, including the new matrix for KVM-over-IP, at NAB Show 2019. 
The system enables distributed switching of computer signals via standard IP-based networks, offering even more flexibility and scalability when implementing KVM installations. KVM systems are the link between IT and broadcast structures and offer cross-system, platform-independent operation and extensive interoperability. 
The new highlight at G&D's booth is the ControlCenter-IP and the recently released IP extenders form a powerful matrix to transmit KVM-over-IP. The system offers G&D's customers new possibilities. By using standard network components, IT structures can now be scaled more flexibly and easily. While the network infrastructure takes over the transport of IP packets, the ControlCenter-IP contributes the logic. Transmission takes place compressed via CAT cabling or optical fiber via standard IP-based networks on Layer 3, with a data transmission rate of 1 Gbit/s per line.
The new system for KVM-over-IP extends real 4K over IP and ensures pixel-perfect video transmission for DisplayPort 1.2 signals, among others, with ideal hand-eye coordination. Resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz are supported. In addition to solutions for DP 1.2, the company also offers modules for DVI single and dual link as well as DP 1.1 with support for all common resolutions. Users benefit from latency-free and lossless images at the best possible performance.
All of G&D’s matrix systems offer high interoperability and can be optimally integrated into existing media or broadcast control and monitoring systems to ensure uniform operation and to bundle and simplify multi-level, complex processes. The KVM systems build the bridge between IT and broadcast and facilitate the work of broadcasters. At the 2019 NAB Show, the manufacturer will present a suitable application with original broadcast equipment from manufacturers such as Ross Video and BFE. With the help of KVM systems, video servers and broadcast computers can not only be operated remotely, but input devices, mixing consoles, joystick controllers, live cameras and other devices can also be integrated as usual – even when working on remote computers. This way, producers always have the proper equipment at hand and can switch any sources to sinks.
Another highlight at G&D’s booth will be the DP1.2-VisionXG KVM extender to extend high-resolution 4K and 8K video signals at 60 Hz – uncompressed and latency-free. The system transmits 8K resolutions up to 10,000 m via optical fibres and will provide an insight into the use of KVM systems in gaming and e-sports.
Last but not least, the company will showcase its new RemoteAccess-CPU. With this, the manufacturer addresses the increasing virtualisation of the broadcast workflow and provides answers to red-hot topics such as professional access to virtualisation solutions for cloud editing and remote production. RemoteAccess-CPU will be available by Q4 2019. The new modules can then be used to create hybrid systems with real and virtual infrastructures, making them intuitive to use. Operators simply select the source they need from a standardised overview, regardless of whether the computer is stored in the server room or the cloud.
