IHSE launches 4K60 extenders over copper cable

IHSE has expanded the Draco extender series with Cat X transmission of video signals up to 4K60. A combination of Cat X and fibre optics in matrix switching applications is also possible.

IHSE’s Draco ultra KVM extenders series was developed in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS), regarded as the industry's leading technology for KVM signal extension.

For ultra-high-resolution video signals, IHSE offers Extreme Velocity (XV) extenders. The XV series is now offered with Cat X devices to supplement the original fibre versions. The new XV models support DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0, enabling transmission of 4K60 video with a colour depth of 10 bit per RGB color channel and optimal 4:4:4 colour sampling over a single Cat X connection.

Backward compatibility of these devices enables access from 3G to 1G infrastructures through Draco tera enterprise matrix switches. Workstations with 4K screens can access 2K computers via extender modules of other Draco series, regardless of the transmission medium.

In addition to compatibility with all Draco ultra extenders, the new 3G extenders are also compatible with all Draco vario add-on modules for audio and serial signals and are suitable for use with Draco tera matrix switches.
