Guntermann & Drunck to debut KVM-over-IP at ISE 2019


German KVM manufacturers Guntermann & Drunck is to present its new KVM matrix for KVM-over-IP for the first time at ISE 2019.

G&D will exhibit both classic, dedicated KVM systems and systems for KVM-over-IP. Using control room installations, visitors will be able to experience how G&D KVM matrix systems work with typical AV equipment such as media controls and controllers to ensure a homogeneous system and interoperability.

Together with a series of IP extenders, the ControlCenter-IP forms a matrix with which any connected operator station can be granted access to any remote computer. Thus, operators benefit from the full performance of their computers even when operating them remotely and but yet in real time. While the network infrastructure takes over the transport of KVM-over-IP using network switches and routers, the ControlCenter-IP contributes the logic.

Transmission takes place compressed via CAT cabling or optical fibres via standard IP-based networks on layer 3, with a data transmission rate of 1 Gbit/s per line. Being able to use standard network components means G&D’s KVM-over-IP can be scaled more easily, flexibly and cost-effectively.

The ControlCenter-IP system uses in-house compression technology HDIP. This compression mode allows the loss-less transmission of video signals with a resolution of 4K at 60Hz. In combination with IP extender products for DP1.2a and DP1.1a as well as single link and dual link DVI, a wide range of video signals and resolutions up to real 4K over IP is supported.
