IHSE is expanding the successful Draco ultra series with additional KVM extender models.

These new models enable the transmission of high-definition video signals, including HDMI 1.3, SDI, DVI-I and DVI-D. The Draco ultra range is based on the Lici video codec, developed in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS), to provide high efficiency in video transmission.

The Draco vario ultra series KVM extenders deliver quality in the transmission of high definition video at 60 frames per second, alongside keyboard, mouse and data signals with very little latency.

The new Draco ultra extender models enable remote operation of a computer from a user workstation, consisting of a keyboard, mouse and video screen, and are capable of handling HDMI 1.3 and 2.0, SDI, DVI-D and DVI-I (VGA) signals. The SDI extender further converts SDI sources for display on standard computer monitors. Digital audio signals can be de-embedded and output as analogue audio to other devices such as external speakers or headphones.

The DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 models deliver 4K60 video with a colour depth of 10 bits per RGB colour channel and optimal 4:4:4 colour sampling over a single KVM connection.

By synchronising multiple Draco ultra extenders, resolutions like 8K or 5K x 3K can be achieved, which is particularly useful for large displays in showrooms and presentation areas.

Draco ultra KVM extenders are good for users who need reliable, real-time, high-resolution remote computer content with minimal cabling. They are an excellent choice for professional AV applications in rental and staging, highly secure control centres, and virtual reality installations.
