Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) will be attending the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2018, AV and system integration show presenting innovative control room KVM equipment.

At the G&D booth, everything will revolve around the optimum integration of KVM technology in control rooms, pixel-perfect video quality and the extension and switching of 4K resolutions using matrix systems.

The German manufacturers will exhibit first-class compressing and uncompressed extender systems such as DP1.2-Vision and DP1.2-VisionXG, that can extend even 4K and 8K video resolutions at 60Hz over long distances without loss or latency.

Complex matrix installations made easy

With KVM it becomes interesting when you do not just remove computers from the workstation and extend their signals to the control room, but whenever complex matrix installations need to be interconnected.

So, several computers can be operated remotely via different, simultaneous workstations. Even high-resolution 4K video signals can be easily extended, switched and distributed through the matrix.

This is where the DP1.2-Vision KVM extender shows its real value because it is fully compatible to and can be combined with the digital matrix switches ControlCenter-Digital and ControlCenter-Compact. Therefore, it can be easily integrated into complex IT installations.

Interoperability and compatibility – highlights for control rooms

KVM systems from G&D do not only offer users homogeneous access and uniform operation of different systems. KVM equipment from G&D offers so much more.

For example, a KVM matrix can be quickly and easily combined with typical control room equipment like video wall controllers, multi-viewers or media controls such as AMX, Crestron, and large control screen walls or projection areas.

This way, control room staff are always able to focus on the right system, which ensures the uniform operation of multiple systems. Multi-level processes and complex procedures can be linked in a single user interface.

The KVM system provides the required sources and enables their operation. In combination with the further media equipment, individual video sources can be enlarged quickly and easily over several screens, or selected images can be displayed if required.

Various presets can be pre-configured and called up at the push of a button.
