At IBC booth 7.A25, IHSE demonstrates various options for KVM extension with 5K video via just one extender pair. Visitors can experience the advantages of the different KVM extender systems in a direct comparison.
IHSE offers three different systems for this purpose: The proprietary DisplayPort1.2 extenders of the Draco vario series, which transmit and realize 5K resolutions at 60 Hz. Second is the IP-based kvm-tec Scalableline and Media4Kconnect series, which also achieves 5K/60. As a third comparison model, the proprietary DisplayPort1.1 extenders of the Draco vario series are available.
Optimized firmware has made it possible to transmit 5K resolutions at 30 Hertz via the 1G models. Applications where frame rate is not of significant importance will benefit from these models, in addition to the cost advantage and lower heat generation, which allows six extender modules to be installed in space-saving 6-slot chassis with only 1 RU.
Applications requiring increased performance of video transmission, e.g. in the field of esports, have the choice between the high-performance DP1.2 extenders, either over IP with the kvm-tec Scalableline/Media4Kconnect – or over highly secure proprietary networks with the IHSE Displayport1.2 extenders of the Draco vario series.
