See you in Las Vegas with a special focus on 4K

G&D presents the broadest KVM portfolio on the market

See you in Las Vegas with a special focus on 4K

The new KVM extension DP1.2-Vision-XG extends computer signals up to 10,000m via fiber optics.

The annual NAB Show in Las Vegas is a thriving meeting place for all US broadcasters and digital media professionals. For many years now, Guntermann & Drunck GmbH has been a strong partner for the broadcast industry and shows great commitment to this sector. This year, the US subsidiary of the German KVM manufacturer will again be at the show to present the broadest portfolio of the entire KVM market. G&D“s stand will be dedicated to 4K. Here, a range of KVM systems, which are capable of extending and switching 4K video signals even over long distances – pixel-perfect, loss-less and without latency – will be presented.

Uncompressed transmission of 4K and 8K over distances up to 10,000 m
The DisplayPort KVM extender system DP1.2-VisionXG consists of a computer module (transmitter) and a user module (receiver) and extends computer signals via fiber optics over distances up to 10,0000m. For the perfect hand eye coordination, the transmission of high-resolution DisplayPort video signals is uncompressed, pixel perfect and lossless. The dedicated transmission via optical fibers offers sufficient bandwidth for an uncompressed and pixel-perfect transmission of 4K and 8K videos at 60Hz as well as for keyboard/mouse, RS232, USB2.0, and audio signals. The system includes many user-friendly and mission-critical features such as the screen-freeze function, the monitoring function, a redundant power supply, SNMP, and two network ports.

Loss-less transmission even for compressing systems
Another highlight at G&D“s stand in Las Vegas will be the presentation of compressing systems, which now include G&D“s improved, in-house HDIP compression technology in the latest development stage, Level 3. This compression mode allows the loss-less transmission of video signals with a resolution of 4K at 60Hz. The KVM extender DP-Vision1.2 already uses the advantages of this new compression mode for the extension of computer signals either via fiber optics up to 10,000 m or via CAT cables up to 140 m.

Switching 4K video signals via matrix systems
It is even more exciting when it comes to extending computer signals not only as a point-to-point connection, but when these signals are also switched and distributed – or in other words, when several computers are to be operated remotely via different, simultaneous workstations. Following G&D“s principle of mix & match, all products as well as their variants are compatible and can be combined with each other. The KVM extender DP1.2-Vision can easily be integrated into G&D matrix systems such as the ControlCenter-Compact or the ControlCenter-Digital, which allows the extension and switching of 4K at 60 Hz through the matrix.

Unlimited access with KVM-over-IP™
Based on IP structures, the new KVM extender DP-Vision-IP complements G&D“s portfolio and breaks any limitations of bridging distances that existed so far. The system supports DisplayPort video resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz or 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz. Combinations with other G&D systems are also possible thus allowing complex installations with worldwide access.

With the DP-Vision-IP, G&D are significantly expanding their portfolio and currently offer the broadest range of KVM systems available on the market. Various broadcasting companies and TV stations in the US already rely on quality „made in Germany“ products from G&D. The exhibition team will present all above-mentioned systems at NAB show booth N5624, 24-27 April, 2017.

First-class combination of quality, functionality and consulting

First-class combination of quality, functionality and consulting

When broadcasters choose new technical equipment, they don“t just consider the technical parameters of a product. It is rather the interplay of quality, functionality and technical consulting that provide the decisive impulse for solving complex challenges. For decades, the Guntermann & Drunck GmbH has been extremely successful with focusing on these aspects – only one of the reasons why the company is the leading manufacturer of KVM products for broadcast applications around the world.

Uncompressed transmission of 4K and 8K over distances up to 10,000 m
The DP1.2-VisionXG is a KVM extender of superlatives, which allows uncompressed and latency-free transmission of 4K and 8K video at 60Hz. The KVM extender system consists of a computer module and a user module. It allows users to operate their computers remotely while benefitting from the pixel-perfect, uncompressed transmission of high-resolution DisplayPort video over distances of up to 10,000m. This ensures a perfect hand-eye coordination and best video quality. Dedicated transmission takes place over fibre optics to provide sufficient bandwidth for uncompressed DisplayPort 1.2 signals, video, keyboard/mouse, RS232, USB 2.0 and audio. The system includes many user-friendly and mission-critical features such as the screen-freeze function, the monitoring function, a redundant power supply, SNMP and two network ports.

Loss-free transmission even for compressing systems
Another highlight at the G&D stand will be the presentation of compressing systems, which now include G&D“s improved, in-house HDIP compression technology in the latest development stage, Level 3. This compression mode allows the loss-free transmission of video signals with a resolution of 4K at 60Hz. The KVM extender DP-Vision1.2 already uses the advantages of this new compression mode for the extension of computer signals either via fibre optics up to 10,000 m or via CAT cables up to 140 m.

Switching 4K via matrix
The scenario becomes even more exciting when it comes to extending computer signals not only as a point-to-point connection, but when these signals are also switched and distributed – or in other words, when several computers are to be operated remotely via different, simultaneous workstations. Following G&D“s principle of mix & match, all products as well as their variants are compatible and can be combined with each other. The KVM extender DP1.2-Vision can easily be integrated into G&D matrix systems such as the ControlCenter-Compact or the ControlCenter-Digital, which allows the extension and switching of 4K at 60 Hz through the matrix. The ControlCenter-Compact is available in six expansion levels providing between 8 and 80 dynamic ports, which can be used either as input or as output. The device is compatible with both the DVICenter and the ControlCenter-Digital as well as all end devices, which makes it possible to add new systems to existing infrastructures.

G&D“s matrix switches include many useful and helpful functionalities such as CrossDisplay-Switching and scenario switching. The KVM Matrix-Grid™ further enhances the possibilities of interconnecting distributed IT structures. At different locations different matrix systems can be integrated into a system, resulting in a large, virtual, reliable matrix system, which can be expanded flexibly. Another useful feature – the monitoring function – allows administrators to monitor and maintain both computer modules and user modules as well as the central matrix.
Trade fair visitors can look forward to experiencing this and many other features as the most important addition to pure technical specifications.

Unlimited access with KVM-over-IP™
Based on IP structures, the new KVM extender DP-Vision-IP complements G&D“s portfolio and breaks any spatial limitations that existed so far. The system supports DisplayPort video resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz or 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz. Combinations with other G&D systems are also possible thus allowing complex installations with worldwide access. With the DP-Vision-IP, G&D are significantly expanding their portfolio and currently offer the broadest range of KVM systems available on the market.

G&D KVM systems help create user-friendly, ergonomic and efficient workstations without any computers and free from noise and heat emissions. These ideal working conditions make both humans and computers more productive. Storing the computers in central equipment rooms makes it easier for technicians to administrate and maintain the devices. Many national and international TV stations and broadcasters trust in G&D“s 30 years of experience of manufacturing mission-critical KVM systems.

G&D introduces KVM extender of a completely different league

DP1.2.-VisionXG – the world“s first and only KVM extender to transmit 8K video

G&D introduces KVM extender of a completely different league

KVM extender DP1.2-VisionXG-MC4 for perfect video transmission, pixel by pixel up to 8K at 60 Hz.

Guntermann & Drunck GmbH can claim another superlative in the KVM industry: the DP1.2-VisionXG-MC4, the world’s first and only KVM extender for uncompressed, latency-free transmission of 8K video at 60Hz. The high-class KVM extender system consists of a computer module and a user module. It allows users to operate their computers remotely while benefitting from the pixel-perfect, uncompressed transmission of high-resolution DisplayPort video over four video channels and distances of up to 10,000m. Thanks to the source synchronicity of the video channels, even the highest video resolutions can be extended over long distances. This fact is especially interesting since DisplayPort cables for transmitting high resolutions are usually extremely short.

The dedicated transmission over optical fibres provides enough bandwidth for uncompressed DisplayPort 1.2 video signals, keyboard/mouse, RS232, USB2.0 and audio.

The system includes many mission-critical features such as the screen-freeze function, the monitoring function, a redundant power supply, SNMP and two network ports.

With the future-oriented additions to their product portfolio such as KVM-over-IP™, among other things, G&D show their customers how to use powerful KVM systems to get the maximum out of their installations.

DP1.2-MUX3-ATC for the optimisation of high-performance ATC workplaces

Brand new KVM Switch from G&D – when ultra-fast switching is needed for even more safety

DP1.2-MUX3-ATC for the optimisation of high-performance ATC workplaces

The KVM Switch DP1.2-MUX3-ATC facilitates extremely fast switching between computers.

G&D is presenting another new product – the new DP1.2-MUX3-ATC. Via the KVM switch, ATCOs can operate up to three computers from one workspace (e.g. primary, redundancy and fall-back systems). The high-performance system supports 4K resolution at 60Hz and avoids the short image disturbances usually found at these resolutions when switching. The switcher is especially designed for the demands of ATC – 100% secure round-the-clock operation at top performance.

Compression-free, pixel-perfect, latency-free and loss-free
The new KVM Switch shows its strengths in ATC redundancy concepts. The compression-free system facilitates extremely fast switching. Redundancy and fall-back systems can easily be set up to run parallel to the primary system. In the case of computer malfunction, the user can switch to a redundancy system at the touch of a button – within a fraction of a second. As well as system security, the redundant system also offers the additional benefit that technicians can carry out administration and maintenance in the background without disrupting the work of the ATCO on the primary system. In combination with a KVM extender, the computer signals can be extended, so that pilot computers are blocked locally and operated remotely. Control rooms then enjoy optimal working conditions, without noise or heat emissions.

Mission-critical features for more safety
Especially designed for air traffic control, the KVM Switch boasts mission-critical features such as SNMP and monitoring for the active health management of system components, as well as redundant power supply. The user-friendly screen-freeze function holds its own in the case of a signal disruption. This feature „freezes“ the last received image in case the video signal fails. A semi-transparent red frame signifies this status. This means that the ATCO isn“t left looking at a black screen in case of emergency, rather has access to static information and a timer. Security concepts for automatic switching and external activation concepts are also available. These allow the system to be linked to further concepts to guarantee absolute reliability.

KVM: powerful partner to the ATC industry

Systems from G&D serve as an invisible wingman – powerful and efficient

KVM: powerful partner to the ATC industry

KVM extender DP1.2-VisionXG-MC4 for perfect video transmission, pixel by pixel up to 8K at 60 Hz.

Hardly any control room application is as sensitive as air traffic control. For their responsible tasks air traffic controllers rely on computer-assisted structures in the background. These systems, however, must be 100% safe, robust and designed for around-the-clock operation. KVM technology has become an integral part of IT infrastructures. It extends and switches computer signals thus allowing the remote operation of computer technology or the real-time access to several computers. Over the last decades, the German KVM manufacturer Guntermann & Drunck GmbH has always put a special focus on ATC applications. The long-standing cooperation with many well-known ANSPs resulted in the development of many KVM products and features specifically tailored to the requirements of the ATC industry – with uncompressed or compressed data transmission at full performance and best video resolutions up to 4K @ 60 Hz and even 8K @ 60 Hz.

DP1.2-VisionXG – an extender system of superlatives
The KVM extender DP1.2-VisionXG extends computer signals via optical fibres at a distance of up to 10,000 m and provides uncompressed, loss-free and latency-free data transfer – pixel by pixel for best hand-eye coordination. The dedicated transmission via optical fibres offers sufficient bandwidth for the uncompressed and pixel-perfect transmission of 4K and 8K videos at 60Hz as well as for keyboard/mouse, RS232, USB2.0 and audio signals.

With a high-resolution 4K screen, the workstation can be configured to have a single large monitor that displays multiple ATC applications in different image segments. Thus controllers can concentrate on a single contiguous area and are not distracted by visible monitor frames. Even high-resolution 8K applications are displayed via four video channels – without any loss or latency. Thanks to the source synchronicity of the video channels, even highest video resolutions can be extended over long distances. The high-performance system is reliable and best suitable for 24/7 operation – also due to its redundant power supply. Mission-critical features such as the screen-freeze function, the monitoring function, SNMP and two network interfaces support technicians and ATCOs in their work.

Recording images for air traffic control: Authentic data due to uncompressed transmission
Like all KVM extenders from G&D, the CPU module of the new DP1.2-VisionXG provides an interface to connect a local workstation, which can be used to record images required for the documentation of air traffic. This also provides legal certainty in case of doubt. Since the images are not compressed when transmitted, the image data transmitted to the workstation corresponds exactly to what is recorded on the computer – the recording therefore also exactly matches the information of the controller.

DP1.2-MUX3-ATC – when ultrafast switching is required
G&D will present another new product at the World ATM Congress 2016 – the new DP1.2-MUX3-ATC. The KVM switch lets ATCOs operate up to three computers from one workstation (e.g. primary, redundancy and fallback system). The compression-free system allows extremely fast switching between computers. On top of this, it is possible to install redundancy and fallback systems running parallel to the primary system. The high-performance system supports 4K solutions at 60 Hz and is especially designed to cater to the needs of the ATC industry, meaning it provides reliable 24/7 operation at full performance.

A variety of 4K devices
Thanks to the cooperation with many international ANSPs and their close connection to the market, G&D“s portfolio includes a whole range of 4K products, such as the KVM switches DP1.2-MUX, DP-MUX and DL-MUX or the extender systems DP1.2-VisonXG, DL-Vision and DP1.2-Vision. The latter uses the improved, in-house HDIP compression technology in the latest development stage, Level 3. This compression mode allows the loss-free transmission of video signals with a resolution of 4K at 60Hz. DP1.2-Vision is fully compatible with digital matrix switches such as the ControlCenter-Digital and the new ControlCenter-Compact, allowing not only the extension, but also the distributed switching of 4K video by matrix switches and is therefore the ideal solution for the remote operation of multiple computers via various, simultaneous workstations. Following G&D“s principle of mix & match, all products as well as their variants are compatible and can be combined with each other.

The new ControlCenter-Compact is available in six expansion levels providing between 8 and 80 dynamic ports, which can be used either as input or as output interfaces. The matrix switch transmits signals either via CAT cables or optical fibres. Mixing these cable types is possible. too. The device is compatible with both the DVICenter and the ControlCenter-Digital as well as all end devices, which makes it possible to add new systems to existing infrastructures. A number of user-friendly features for ATCOs round off the matrix system: e.g. the intuitive CrossDisplay-Switching, scenario switching or the push-get function for the integration of video walls, as well as security-relevant functionalities such as monitoring and SNMP. These functions make it much easier for admins to maintain and monitor the devices.

With G&D’s high-performance KVM systems, computers can easily be moved out of towers and control rooms and security-relevant concepts can be established. Disturbances such as developing noise and waste heat are banished from the immediate work environment. At the same time, ATCOs benefit from more space, efficiency and a clearly-arranged workplace while technicians are able to administrate the system from the server room instead of having to disturb the ATCOs in their important tasks.

Unlimited access with KVM-over-IP™
Based on IP structures, the new KVM extender DP-Vision-IP complements G&D“s portfolio and breaks any spatial limitations that existed so far. The system supports DisplayPort video resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz or 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz.Combinations with other G&D systems are also possible thus allowing complex installations with worldwide access.

The long-term commitment of to the ATC sector puts the company in a position to develop the best possible products and functionalities specifically for ANSPs. G&D currently offers the broadest KVM portfolio on the market – also thanks to the new IP systems. Within this portfolio, there are almost no limits of combining the systems.
