Oberteuringen, June 24, 2020 – IHSE, the leading manufacturer of high-end KVM (keyboard-video-mouse) solutions for extension and switching of computer signals, today announced that it will provide a large-scale KVM system to a major advanced broadcast media company in the United States. The Broadcast Media Center, which will be the streaming and technology hub for the company, is expected to be operational in 2021.
The Broadcast Media Center (BMC) will provide the essential foundation for the company’s existing and future digital streaming and content distribution capabilities. It will have the necessary capacity to manage and distribute hundreds of thousands of hours of programming every year to over 200 affiliation stations and more than 800 distribution partners.
The KVM system is based on a fiber optic Draco tera enterprise matrix supporting up to 576 connections between computers and workstations. The BMC system will provide for over 100 dual-head DisplayPort 4K user workstations connected to over 100 computer sources. Computer keyboard and mouse sharing configurations will be managed by IHSE’s advanced tera tool control system and video resolutions up to 4096×2160@60Hz will be supported.
Given the large number of video sources needed at the Broadcast Media Center, and given that IHSE collaborated with the company early-on to develop the requirements, the Draco tera enterprise squarely hit the target for what was needed to meet current and future requirements for this next generation Media Center.
