G&D to present brand-new KVM-over-IP™ solutions and the broadest KVM product portfolio on the market

Company Guntermann & Drunck GmbH

Whenever the best of the best meet, they strive for superlatives. Therefore, this year’s IBC once again aims at breaking all previous visitor and exhibitor records. Watch, be amazed, experience – at hardly any other trade fair superlatives count more than at the world’s largest broadcast event in Amsterdam.

German KVM experts and pioneers Guntermann & Drunck will be presenting their latest solutions for KVM-over-IP™ at stand 1.D39 from September 14-18, 2018. G&D will launch the ControlCenter-IP, a matrix system to extend and switch computer signals via standard IP-based networks on layer 3.

Even the largest IT installations can now be easily scaled and implemented via IP access. With the DP-Vision-IP extender, which was introduced in 2017, and the brand-new extenders for KVM-over-IP™ DP1.2-Vision-IP and DL-DVI-Vision-IP, the central appliance ControlCenter-IP forms a strong KVM matrix that offers pixel-perfect video quality, high performance and maximum reliability for broadcast-typical control rooms.

The ControlCenter-IP fits perfectly into the existing portfolio and comes with all the popular features that broadcasters know from the classic G&D KVM matrices. Thus, the device provides functionalities such as monitoring and SNMP, scripting and scenario switching, push-get and CrossDisplay-Switching for absolutely intuitive operation at multi-monitor workstations.

ControlCenter-IP – the team player in broadcast-typical control rooms
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. At the G&D stand, interested visitors can experience how the IP matrix system can be included in a typical broadcast control room application with control and monitoring systems.

What else to expect at the G&D stand
G&D have also expanded their portfolio of classic KVM systems by launching six new versions of the compact matrix series ControlCenter-Compact. Current additions include expansion stages with 176 and 128 CAT ports as well as mixed versions with 32 fiber ports and 16/32/48/80 CAT ports.

All systems come with the in-house HDIP compression technology in the latest development stage, which enables a lossless transmission of video signals with a resolution of 4K at 60 Hz. Thus, the entire ControlCenter-Compact series can be combined with DP1.2-Vision KVM extenders to extend and switch 4K video signals through the matrix – another highlight at G&D’s IBC stand. Thanks to the proven compression method, the compact matrix series delivers optimal, pixel-perfect image quality without sharpness reduction and therefore a latency-free operation

Does it go any higher and better?
If you are searching for superlatives, taking a closer look at the KVM extender DP1.2-VisionXG is indispensable. DP1.2-VisionXG is a powerful KVM extender to extend high-resolution 4K and 8K video signals at 60 Hz – uncompressed and latency-free. The extender system transmits 8K resolutions up to 10,000 m via optical fibers and will also be on display in Amsterdam.
