New KVM high performance extender from G&D

The new KVM extension DP1.2-VisionXG extends computer signals up to 10,000 m via fiber optics and transmits 4K videos at full 60 Hz without using any kind of compression.

The new KVM extension DP1.2-VisionXG extends computer signals up to 10,000 m via fiber optics and transmits 4K videos at full 60 Hz without using any kind of compression.

Guntermann & Drunck have developed a new KVM extender system to comply with the new standard for DisplayPort 1.2 signals. Unfortunately, high performance computers also mean lots of heat and noise – and therefore an even greater need to ban them from the control room.

By removing computers into central equipment rooms, other nuisances vanish from the working environment, too. Air traffic controllers benefit from more space as well as a cleaner working environment that is free from heat and noises emitting from computers. For the new DP1.2-VisionXG, fiber optics connect the KVM transmitter at the computer to the KVM receiver placed at the workstation. Despite distances of up to 10,000m between computer and workstation, ATCOs operate their systems in a 1:1 connection without any latency.

To ensure high video quality, the new DP1.2-VisionXG system transmits video signals transparent meaning pixel by pixel and without any compression. This way, all details remain visible even when it comes to high-resolution 4K images at the full refresh rate of 60 Hz and across the entire transmission distance.

In addition to the basic functions – the transmission of computer signals – the KVM extenders are as reliable as all G&D devices: high quality made in Germany combined with additional safety features that have been developed and implemented in cooperation with Eurocontrol years ago, and, since then, have been continuously further developed and improved.

Among them are the Screen-Freeze function (even when losing the image source the controller can continue to temporarily operate the system since the last available image is frozen) and the comprehensive monitoring tool. The system can be monitored via network interfaces – either actively via web interface or passively via SNMP. Now, technicians are able to detect and react to critical conditions before they would affect the work of air traffic controllers.

The new DP1.2-VisionXG systems expand the powerful G&D portfolio with another high-quality extender that will be presented first at World ATM Congress 2016 at stand 337.
