Bringing Down The Technological Barriers
With IP-Based KVM
By John Halksworth
Product Manager Adder Technology

W

hile KVM products are by no
means new to the broadcast
industry, it's the use of IP as a
transport network that has boosted
capability, bringing improved levels
of reliability and versatility across
the production workflow.
In an environment where traditional
AV equipment has dominated for so
many years, the move towards IP
based-KVM has brought down the
technological barriers, enabling realtime, accurate video operation in
areas such as outside broadcasts,
gallery control and post-production.
One factor that is driving
the adoption of standard IP
infrastructures for broadcast
environments is the latest

advancements in IP-based KVM
products. To make the best use
of IP technology, the real benefits
come when multiple users can
connect remotely to multiple
devices. By using the existing
Ethernet many broadcasters have
installed as standard, it is now
possible to carry lossless DVI
digital video and bi-directional
audio along with keyboard, mouse
and peripheral data, connecting an
unlimited number of computers to
an unlimited number of users over
great distances.
The range from Adder Technology,
for example, allows operators to
switch, extend, share machines
and content without loss of quality

or performance. The AdderLink
Infinity makes use of a standard 1
GB network and carries DVI digital
video (compatible with HDMI and
DisplayPort standards) along with
keyboard, mouse and other USB
peripheral data.
When it comes to any OB event, the
content coming into the truck, both
video and audio, must be captured,
recorded, edited and transmitted.
As a result, instant video and USB
switching capabilities, reliability,
device support and ergonomics are
crucial factors in ensuring success.
With IP-based KVM products staff
within the truck can easily switch
between and manage these streams,
and give OB operators the ability to
control the equipment that performs
these tasks. The ability to efficiently
control multiple sources from a
single input is therefore critical in
this setting and is met by a KVM
solution that extends and switches
video signals without loss of quality
or performance.
When using a standard IP
network to deliver KVM solutions,
the reliability of the network is
crucial. For pixel perfect operation

1GbE networking is required.
Post-production focuses on two
key areas - pixel perfect content
and frame rate, in addition to the
requirement for a noiseless system
and the ability to share content. IPbased high performance KVM allows
the creation of an edit suite based
on specific customer requirements
by enabling different clients to
seamlessly switch between different
resources or resource presets.
Evidently, the wider adoption of
IP-based high performance KVM
demonstrates the many benefits
it brings to virtually every stage of
the workflow. An increased number
of broadcasters now recognise the
clear advantages, from enhanced
set up and operational flexibility
and reliability, to improving both
operational and cost efficiencies.
