IHSE USA (booth N6913) will be showcasing its latest KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) solutions at NAB 2022, taking place April 23-27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. To meet the demand for high-resolution video and fast switching in the broadcast and esports industries, the company will highlight its Draco MultiView 4K60 and tera flex matrix switcher. Additionally, visitors will have the opportunity to see the company’s Draco ultra 240 high frame rate expansion series in action as two professional esports athletes compete playing the latest multiplayer games in a tournament. miniature.
“KVM systems are staples of workflow in broadcast studios and on-site presentations for esports tournaments, both of which are demanding applications requiring the distribution of video content at the highest resolution possible. and without latency or video artifacts,” says Dan Holland, Sales and Product Marketing at IHSE USA. “Our Draco MultiView 4K60, tera flex matrix switcher and Vario DisplayPort extender are up to the task, ensuring content is transmitted in pristine quality while delivering extremely fast switching for increased efficiency. Combined with our Tournament miniature esports, it’s going to be an amazing show, and we can’t wait to see everyone in person again.
The Draco MultiView 4K60 allows simultaneous operation of four computers displayed on a single screen, with full access from a single keyboard and mouse. Offering four inputs and two outputs, the 1-RU solution is capable of handling four ultra-high resolution video sources up to 4K/UHD at 60Hz frame rate simply by moving the mouse from display region to display region. another one. With programmable keyboard commands, real-time switching between video sources is also possible. Display layouts can be freely arranged and displayed in different modes: full screen, quad screen, picture in picture, preview, 2+2 and free mode. Presets allow instant switching between layouts. External control options are available via API or GPIO interface.
Introduced in 2020, Draco tera flex KVM matrix systems bring advanced features normally found in IHSE’s larger scale matrix frameworks. Port options range from 16 ports to 160 ports and can be packaged in 1-RU, 2-RU, or 4-RU chassis sizes. To support systems that need to be configured for future expansion, a 2-RU or 4-RU chassis can be populated with a minimum port requirement and expanded to full capacity later. Expansion modules can be mixed between Cat X and fiber optic types in 1 Gbps or 3 Gbps bandwidth, and multiple switches can be easily interconnected using optional matrix grid technology . The Draco tera flex incorporates several advanced features of the Draco tera enterprise series, including SNMPv3, LDAPS, multilingual on-screen display, encrypted communication for maximum security, and quick startup. The modular structure of the switch allows simple exchange of individual components and opens the way for future expansion.
For high-end workstations using multiple displays, the Draco Ultra DisplayPort 1.1 Dual-Head KVM Extender provides lossless visual extension of two high-resolution DisplayPort signals over a single duplex fiber cable or Cat X copper cable. installations and reduces costs by reducing cable requirements and matrix ports. All-digital video signals can be transmitted in 4K resolutions, while embedded audio signals can be output directly to connected displays with built-in speakers. Optional analog or digital audio upgrade modules can be added to allow separate audio output connections.
Also on display will be the KVMoIP solutions resulting from the acquisition of kvm-tec by IHSE. The flexible and highly secure products extend and enable high-performance, low-latency transmission of signals via the standard IP protocol in existing networks. The acquisition gives IHSE USA access to a global KVMoIP customer base that will benefit from the company’s international distribution network and additional synergy potential in purchasing and production.
Finally, IHSE USA will host industry partner VuWall and its centralized video wall management platform, TRx 3.1. As VuWall’s core software platform, TRx is the ideal solution for seamless control and visualization of multiple video walls and a single display across multiple rooms, floors, and campuses. It is the only platform that distributes AV signals over IP and provides comprehensive video wall management software. TRx features an intuitive interface with easy drag-and-drop operation, built-in HTML control panel designer, scripting, advanced security and user rights management, and extensive API. With its interoperable, hybrid design, it simplifies the deployment of complex AV-over-IP projects with a single centralized platform that easily installs while routing and serving hundreds of sources without any programming.
