IHSE to debut new lineup of 4K KVM products
IHSE will be at IBC (booth 7.B30) to perform live demonstrations of its latest professional series of KVM extenders and switch products for the broadcast and post production markets. Products on display include the series of Draco tera KVM matrix switchers and Draco vario extenders for 1080p and 2160p (4K) resolutions.
New for IBC will be the 576 Port Draco tera enterprise ultra-high performance KVM and video matrix switch supporting a full range of video formats. The 576 Draco tera is the perfect high performance, modular enterprise-sized matrix system for complete signal distribution of high definition video, audio, and data over twisted-pair copper, multi-mode fiber, or singlemode fiber. Each 576 frame can be configured as either a bi-directional HD-KVM switch for video and data or as a high definition video routing switcher for DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA. Other high definition video signals such as HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and USB 3.0 are supported with the optional UNI-IO high speed I/O cards. Incorporating best-of-breed technology, the Draco tera offers tremendous scalability with cost effective features including support for Ultra High Definition resolutions up 2160p formats.
In partnership with Fraunhofer, IHSE will be demonstrating a new line of Draco Ultra DisplayPort extenders supporting full color depth with 60 Hz refresh. These extenders constitute a new generation of digital KVM signal extension using Frauhofer’s innovative Lightweight Image (LICI) codec. The revolutionary coding technology ensures brilliant image quality at the highest video resolutions with outstanding color accuracy. LICI allows long distance transmission of full digital video up to 4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2160 at 60Hz with full 24 bit 4:4:4 color depth.
Another high efficiency product offering on display will be the new Draco U-Switch that enables parallel management of USB 2.0 and USB-HID signals to multi-monitor workstations via a single keyboard, mouse or push button panel. The Draco U-Switch allow users to perform fast and accurate mouse actions across 8 CPU’s per one keyboard/mouse. The new model also supports the addition of two USB 2.0 ports for flash drives or other high speed USB devices.
IHSE will also demonstrate the new vario series of audio option cards supporting professional-grade microphones for recording studios, auditoriums, and command and control environments. The new 474-BBX balanced audio card provides superior noise reduction to deliver cleaner, higher quality signals that are particularly important for low signal level devices such as microphones when extended over long cable lengths.
Other booth demonstrations include KVM and video extension with redundant fiber or cat5e/6 paths for critical workflow and backup considerations. In addition the company will be exhibiting a full range of KVM matrix and extender solutions designed for broadcast, post production and OB trucks.
