G&D announces compact, powerful extender series

German KVM manufacturer Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) has announced a high-end extender product series, VisionXS.

VisionXS has a small housing, handles video transmission for resolutions up to 4K60 and uses standard networks at up to 10Gbit/s. 

The first launch will be a high-end IP system for DisplayPort UHR, followed by devices for HDMI and DVI-I.

VisionXS has an integrated "IP-MUX" feature. With this function, one console manages several target IP addresses of up to 20 computer sources without the need for additional hardware. For simple applications, the on-screen display can be used to switch to the different sources. Since the switching process is not seamless in the IP-MUX application due to security measures such as VPN setup and encryption structure, customers whose applications have higher requirements, can use the KVM-over-IP matrix system ControlCenter-IP to enable instant switching.

As an additional safety feature, each device is equipped with two transmission ports. This enables fast switching to the fallback transmission line. No additional hardware is required to use the transmission redundancy, because the second port can be enabled via software key - even at a later date. If the product is connected to the KVM network via both transmission ports, switching quickly between both transmission interfaces is possible thanks to link aggregation.

VisionXS extenders can be combined with G&D's matrix systems; VisionXS products can either be operated in pairs as an extender line or they can also be integrated into matrix installations.
