Guntermann & Drunck will bet on 4K and 8K at InfoComm 2017
Guntermann & Drunck and its subsidiary GD North America will participate in InfoComm 2017
Guntermann & Drunck GmbH and its subsidiary GD North America Inc. will travel again to Orlando, FL to participate in InfoComm 2017, the largest annual conference for AV buyers and sellers in the Western Hemisphere. Visitors can expect various KVM solutions and a broad KVM product portfolio.
KVM extender DP1.2-VisionXG
One of these solutions is the KVM extender DP1.2-VisionXG. The system makes it possible to transmit 4K and 8K resolutions at a rate of 60 Hz over large distances – uncompressed, loss-less and without any latency. The KVM extender system consists of a computer module and a user module. It allows users to operate their computers remotely while benefitting from the pixel-perfect, uncompressed transmission of high-resolution DisplayPort videos over distances up to 10,000m. The device is available in variants with up to four video channels. Thanks to the source synchronicity of the video channels, high video resolutions such as 4K and 8K can be extended over long distances.
The DP1.2-VisionXG uses optical fibers for the dedicated transmission. Thus, the system provides enough bandwidth for uncompressed, high-resolution DisplayPort 1.2 video signals, keyboard/mouse, RS232, USB2.0 and audio.
At InfoComm 2017, G&D will also introduce the KVM extender DP1.2-Vision, which uses the in-house HDIP compression technology in the latest development stage, Level 3. This compression mode allows the loss-less transmission of video signals with a resolution of 4K at 60Hz. Thus, the systems require less bandwidth to transmit signals, but still provide clear and visually lossless images and a latency-free operation, according to the company. The DP1.2-Vision supports the transmission of DisplayPort1.2 signals, which takes place either via CAT cables over distances up to 140 m or via optical fibres to 10,000 m.
The KVM extender DP1.2-Vision can be combined with a matrix application and 4K signals can be distributed by matrix systems. KVM matrix systems allow the independent and remote operation of multiple computers over multiple, simultaneous consoles. All G&D products are compatible and can be combined. Thus, the KVM extender DP1.2-Vision can be integrated into G&D matrix systems such as the ControlCenter-Compact or the ControlCenter-Digital, which allows the extension and switching of 4K at 60 Hz through the matrix.
The latest member of the G&D KVM family is the DP-Vision-IP, a KVM extender based on IP structures. The system supports DisplayPort video resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz or 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz.
