Guntermann & Drunck has announced six new expansion stages of its ControlCenter-Compact matrix series. The matrix system manages the distributed switching and extension of computer signals, and thus enables remote operation of several computers via different workstations. With this expansion, the manufacturer says it can offer customers tailor-made solutions to match project requirements.
Until now, the ControlCenter-Compact has been available in six expansion levels with between eight and 80 dynamic ports, which can be used for either input or output; the systems are available in Cat, fibre and mixed versions. Six new versions have been added to G&D’s portfolio, with 176 Cat ports; 128 Cat ports and 32 fibre ports; and mixed versions with 32 fibre ports and optionally 16, 32, 48 or 80 Cat ports.
All systems come with in-house HDIP compression technology in the latest development stage, Level 3, which enables lossless transmission of 4K60 video signals. This means that the new versions of the ControlCenter-Compact can be combined with DP1.2-Vision KVM extenders to extend and switch 4K video signals through the matrix.
The new matrix versions also feature popular operating features such as CrossDisplay-Switching, push-get function, scenario switching and the KVM Matrix-Grid, as well as safety features such as screen-freeze function, monitoring and SNMP.
The ControlCenter-Compact series is compatible with the ControlCenter-Digital, the DVICenter and all end devices. New systems can be added to existing infrastructures, enabling future-proofing, even when retrofitted years after the original installation.
