KVM Airport Control Room Solutions for Data, Video and Audio Signal Switching, Extension, and Collaboration
Black Box offers application consultancy for air traffic- and ground control centres and is a leading supplier of KVM, AV and IT-infrastructure and professional data visualization solutions. From a range of more than 10.000 products, our application engineers help you to choose the right combination of technology for highly available and high-performance KVM switching and extension, video wall processing, virtual desktop infrastructure, operator ergonomics and IT-infrastructure.
With our extended knowledge in networking technology and profound capabilities in cabling, networking and IT-installation, we are a worldwide leading project partner for planning and implementation of hard- and software components in control rooms. For more than 40 years, we have been helping our customers to plan, install and maintain their KVM and networking solutions on a global scale.
High-Performance KVM Matrix Switching and Extension
Our switching and extension systems ensure a quiet work environment for users through proprietary or IP-based extension for PCs and servers. The systems enable multiuser access in real-time for viewing and editing high-resolution content and sharing critical information. Moreover, with redundant power supply, failsafe switching for complete rooms or even buildings and hot-swappable components, our systems are highly available and designed for 24/7 operations, which makes them the right choice for air traffic and ground control.
Especially in environments where many users have to interface with different critical video and data feeds, low-latency data provision is crucial. Our systems help to improve reaction time on critical events and reduce the downtime of your IT-equipment.
With workflow enhancements like the Glide&Switch technology, which helps operators to switch between multiple desktops by simply moving a mouse, we help our customers to make it easier to focus on their daily tasks rather than on their IT equipment.
Easily expendable, our systems can be scaled from a few to a few thousand user workstations and enable the extension of 4K60 video, USB, audio, and serial data over long distances via copper, fibre or the Internet. The flexibility of our systems makes them reliable and future-proof thus saves your investments and lowers TCO.
Mission Critical Data Visualization, VDI and Signage
Choosing our professional video wall solutions enables real-time switching of program windows and content of any kind between all users and multiple video walls in a control room or even between multiple rooms or buildings.
Black Box AV and video wall processing systems are modular, easily extendable and support a wide variety of interface cards like DVI, DisplayPort, SDI, HDMI or analogue interfaces like VGA or composite. Just determine the video- and data sources you would like to freely position on your video walls and we help you to configure the system accordingly. The user-friendly software makes it easy to control the video walls and freely position any source at any screen.
Our VDI technology enables the seamless implementation of VM-desktops into the operator workspace by bridging the gap between IP-based KVM extension & switching applications, and access to virtual machines. In particular, the design addresses applications with a mix of both worlds — without changing the front end for the user.
With an extended portfolio for digital signage solutions, we are able to deliver all components that are necessary for setting up passenger information systems, terminal signage and commercial displays. The right combination of cables, AV extenders and content player makes our signage solutions easy to set up, flexibly expandable and comfortable to operate.
