Create and manage outstanding shows and installations

AV distribution and immersive user experiences with KVM technology

Public venues and entertainment centres place massive demands on AV systems, requiring high reliability, unsurpassed sound and image quality, instant interactive response and flexible distribution.
In many venues and entertainment facilities, displays and workstations are located hundreds of meters away from source equipment.

Highest quality AV distribution and transmission

In professional AV installations, KVM switches and extenders deliver solutions to the need for the highest quality audiovisual distribution. KVM matrix switches provide an unparalleled way of distributing and switching pristine signals throughout a public venue with instant re-configuration as shows evolve and situations change.

Interaction in museums and visitor centers

Touchscreens and other user interface devices enable direct visitor feedback while VR goggles or interactive screens with cameras allow viewers to become completely immersed in an event. KVM systems with bidirectional signal transmission provide an instantaneous feedback channel for a wide range of user interfaces and enable human-machine interaction in the cultural industry.

KVM Solutions in Broadcast and Post Production

HAN Show Theater

With several banks of high-speed video servers, video recorders, digital signage servers and various other supporting devices in the central equipment room a Draco tera KVM matrix switch provides switching capability to operators in the broadcast control center who can instantly switch to any server, view its output and control the video and audio content that is streamed around the building.

“Compared to Las Vegas or other leading international performances, Han Show is the most amazing show I’ve ever seen. Whether in terms of stage art, performance expertise or overall experience, the Han Show is the world’s best.”

Hong Kong Jockey Club

A KVM swich connects the broadcast and data servers and presentation computers located in the first-floor central equipment room, to workstations, edit suites and control desks in the broadcast studios and other areas throughout the building. Punters and racing enthusiasts are kept abreast of racing events and watch live racing. In the high-pressure environment of horse-racing broadcasting, video latency and delays in switching of computer signals are unacceptable.

“The Draco tera switch delivers instant connection to computers and a good operator experience, with no latency in signal transmission. This is a prerequisite for live events which cannot tolerate delays of any kind. From the engineering viewpoint, features like dual fiber ports, redundant power supply and SNMP capability offer flexible and effective ways to create systems with total reliability and zero downtime that can send system alerts when necessary.”

Patrick Wong, Engineer of Hong Kong Jockey Club

Live Legends eSports event

Managing an eSports show is a complex process and it must be possible for operators to respond instantly to events on stage. The KVM system connecting the operators to their computers does not introduce any loss of quality, provides a highly stable operating environment with instant switching. All with no signal delay.

“The server racks were situated in a corridor on the ground floor, but the two operators were sitting front-of-house on the balcony in the arena, 30 meters away. Without the IHSE system, this would have been a major challenge to accomplish.”

Dave van Roon, Senior Media Server and Video Specialist at Live Legends
