G&D Introduce Matrix
KVM experts at Guntermann & Drunck will present an
expanded IP portfolio for APAC's broadcast professionals...
nder the motto "Capture the future", Asia's
broadcast professionals will meet in
Singapore from 26-28 June 2018 to find out
more about the latest products and trends of
With their matrix switch for KVM-over-IP™,
German KVM manufacturers Guntermann und
Drunck present such a future-oriented device.
The new ControlCenter-IP enables distributed
switching of computer signals via standard IPbased networks on layer 3.
Following the portfolio expansion with
extender systems based on KVM-over-IP, the
IP-based matrix now offers double flexibility,
so that even the largest installations can
be operated over IP. In combination with IP
extender systems, the ControlCenter-IP forms
a powerful KVM-over-IP matrix that enables
the switching of all connected transmitter and
receiver modules and extends the usability
and flexibility of broadcast applications.
Encryption of video, keyboard, mouse and
control data with AES-128 ensures secure
and reliable operation.
While network switches and routers transmit
IP packets from A to B, the ControlCenterIP takes over the central system logic and
optimises the accessibility of all devices
by enabling switching between transmitter
and receiver modules (CONs and CPUs).
Operators are able to benefit from a highperformance G&D matrix environment while
at the same time using the advantages of a
Due to the flexible system topology,
installations can be scaled as required and
extended via standard network elements.
Transmission takes place with CAT cabling
via standard IP-based networks on layer 3
and via a Gigabit Ethernet. The transmission
length is almost unlimited; two active network
components can be connected to each other
over a length of up to 100 m via CAT.
Pixel-perfect video transmission
DisplayPort 1.1 signals are processed
pixel-perfectly and with very good hand-eye
coordination. The system also supports
video resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60
G&D's KVM-over-IP™ extenders
CEO Roland Ollek presents the first
Hz or 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz. Coming soon
will be more devices for DVI, dual link and
DisplayPort 1.2. Thus, the ControlCenter-IP
will support the extending and switching of 4K
@ 60 Hz. Based on G&D's proven mix-andmatch concept, the new devices will also be
combinable and compatible with each other to
ensure maximum flexibility and expandability.
Signal transmission is compressed,
lossless, and almost latency-free, whereby
G&D do not reduce the sharpness during
transmission, but use their in-house
compression method, High Dynamic Image
Processing, in the latest development stage,
level 3. It enables the lossless transmission
of video signals and provides optimum image
Proven variety of functions
The popular control room features of the
ControlCenter series have also been integrated
into the new KVM-over-IP matrix. They include
functionalities such as monitoring and SNMP,
a scripting function and scenario switching,
the push-get function or CrossDisplaySwitching for the intuitive operation at multimonitor workstations.
In addition to their new KVM products for
KVM-over-IP, G&D will be showcasing other
powerful solutions from their classic KVM
portfolio at BroadcastAsia and providing
comprehensive technical consulting for
G&D offer the broadest KVM portfolio
available on the market, which is compatible
and combinable with each other. This, and
the new ControlCenter-IP, will be on display at
G&D's booth 4H3-01 at BroadcastAsia 2018.
