New KVM-over-IP systems from G&D24 January 2017
Showcasing its new KVM-over-IP systems, Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) says it is using ISE2017 to reinforce its profile as the KVM supplier with the broadest portfolio,
The new DP1.2-Vision-XG KVM extender extends computer signals up to 10,000m, transmitting 4K or 8K video at 60Hz pixel-by-pixel. 8K is carried over up to four synchronous video channels, with dedicated transmission taking place over fibre optic to provide sufficient bandwidth for uncompressed DisplayPort signals, video, keyboard/mouse, RS232, USB 2.0 and audio.
G&D notes, however, that, compared to uncompressed transmission via fibre optic, classic transmission via Cat cables offers significant advantages when it comes to cost – but Cat cable allows less bandwidth and requires compression. The KVM extender DP-Vision1.2 is designed for both requirements and extends computer signals either via fibre optics up to 10,000m or via Cat cables up to 140m.
The company says that its in-house HDIP compression method is now at its latest development stage, Level 3. This method, G&D claims, allows the loss-free transmission of video signals with a resolution of 4K at 60Hz.
