Guntermann & Drunck is once again on tour in the
USA highlighting smart solutions and their
seamless integration into the world
his fall, G&D North America Inc.
is touring the USA to present the
latest innovations from the world of
KVM at three broadcast and AV events:
NAB New York, SMPTE in Hollywood
and AVxpo in Denver.
G&D is presenting many innovations.
Everything will revolve around
pixel-perfect video quality and the
extension of uncompressed 4K
and 8K resolutions, switching 4K
resolutions through matrix systems
and, the seamless integration of KVM
technology into the broadcast world.
G&D is showing the new GPIO
functionality for studios or OB vans.
The new GPIO-Changer is a device
that helps you install and handle the
GPIO function. This means that tally
switching status can be transmitted
from the computer via the KVM matrix
and the information can be made
available to the user on the console.
Now producers are always informed
whenever a computer is live on the air.
Other central topics include KVM
solutions for the extension of highresolution 4K and 8K video signals and
the switching of 4K video resolutions
through matrix systems - pixel-perfect,
latency-free and fail-safe. One of
these next generation solutions is the
KVM extender DP1.2-VisionXG - the
world's first and only extender for 8K
resolutions (4 x 4K) that can transmit
even Super Hi-Vision at a full refresh
rate of 60Hz, uncompressed, latency
and loss-free over distances of up to
Another highlight is the new DP1.2Vision extender system, which is fully
compatible with G&D's digital matrix
switches and allows the extension,
switching and distribution of 4K video
through these matrix systems. The KVM
extender system provides pixel-perfect
images and uses the in-house HDIP
compression technology in the latest
development stage, Level 3. The DP1.2Vision is fully compatible with already
installed G&D devices.
The DP-Vision-IP allows flexible
computer access over IP structures
and resolving the transmission limits
that previously existed with dedicated
cabling. Thus, users can use IP
structures to access the connected
computers. The DisplayPort™ KVM
processes DisplayPort 1.1a image
data. Transmission is pixel perfect,
with low latency and ideal hand-eye
coordination. DP-Vision-IP supports
DisplayPort video resolutions up to
2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz or 3840 x 2160
@ 30Hz. The signals are transmitted
in compressed form using CAT cabling
over IP-based networks on layer 3. The
video, keyboard, mouse and control
data are encrypted with AES-128.
G&D are responding to the trends
of the broadcast industry. Seamless
integration is the key and G&D has
been working closely with the industry
for more than 30 years. This is how
practical solutions are created.
