G&D Introduces New Matrix
erman KVM experts and pioneers
Guntermann & Drunck will be
presenting their latest solutions for
KVM-over-IP at IBC 2018.
G&D will launch ControlCenter-IP,
a matrix system to extend and switch
computer signals via standard IP-based
networks on Layer 3.
Even the largest IT installations can
now be easily scaled and implemented
via IP access. With the DP-Vision-IP extender, which was introduced in 2017,
and the new extenders for KVM-over-IP
DP1.2-Vision-IP and DL-DVI-Vision-IP,
the central appliance ControlCenter-IP
forms a strong KVM matrix that offers
pixel-perfect video quality, high performance and maximum reliability for
broadcast-typical control rooms.
The ControlCenter-IP fits into the
existing portfolio and comes with all
the features that broadcasters know
from the classic G&D KVM matrices.
The device provides functionalities
such as monitoring and SNMP, scripting
and scenario switching, push-get and
CrossDisplay-Switching for intuitive operation at multi-monitor workstations.
The ControlCenter-IP offers high
interoperability and can be optimally

With the integrated IP-Control-API,
the ControlCenter-IP is able to communicate with the broadcast control
system and can therefore execute any
At the G&D stand, visitors can learn
how the IP matrix system can be included in a typical broadcast control
room application with control and
G&D have also expanded their portfolio of KVM systems by launching six
new versions of the compact matrix
series ControlCenter-Compact. Current
additions include expansion stages
with 176 and 128 CAT ports as well as
mixed versions with 32 fibre ports and
16/32/48/80 CAT ports. All systems
come with the in-house HDIP compression technology in the latest development stage, which enables a lossless
transmission of video signals with a
resolution of 4K at 60 Hz.
The entire ControlCenter-Compact
series can be combined with DP1.2Vision KVM extenders to extend and
switch 4K video signals through the
matrix. Thanks to the proven compression method, the compact matrix series
delivers optimal, pixel-perfect image
quality without sharpness reduction,
giving a latency-free operation.
Another highlight at the stand will be
the DP1.2-VisionXG, a KVM extender
to extend high-resolution 4K and 8K
video signals at 60 Hz - uncompressed
and latency-free. The extender system transmits 8K resolutions up to
10,000m via optical fibre.
