G&D introduces new matrix for KVM-over-IP
German KVM manufacturer Guntermann & Drunck will be presenting KVM-over-IP products at IBC 2018 (September 14-18) on stand 1.D39, including the launch of the ControlCenter-IP, a matrix system to extend and switch computer signals via standard IP-based networks on layer 3.
With the DP-Vision-IP extender, which was introduced in 2017, and the new extenders for KVM-over-IP DP1.2-Vision-IP and DL-DVI-Vision-IP, the central appliance ControlCenter-IP forms a KVM matrix that offers video quality, performance and reliability for broadcast-typical control rooms.
The ControlCenter-IP fits into the existing portfolio and comes with features users will know from the previous G&D KVM matrices. Thus, the device provides functionalities such as monitoring and SNMP, scripting and scenario switching, push-get and CrossDisplay-Switching for intuitive operation at multi-monitor workstations.
The ControlCenter-IP offers 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. Thanks to the integrated IP-Control-API, the ControlCenter-IP is able to communicate with the broadcast control system and can thus execute any switching commands.
