IHSE will demonstrate the Draco ultra DP, the first 4K DisplayPort KVM extender with a 60Hz refresh rate in full colour depth at InfoComm 2017 in Florida on June 14 to 15.
The device constitutes a new generation of digital KVM signal extension using the Lightweight Image (Lici) codec, developed in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits.
This coding technology ensures brilliant image quality at the highest video resolutions with outstanding colour accuracy (deep colour-ready).
The Draco ultra DP extender allows users to operate CPUs from devices at a remotely located workstation – including DisplayPort video devices, keyboards, and pointing devices – over a single duplex fibre cable. The extender transfers fully digital video in 4K resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2160 at a 60Hz refresh rate and full colour depth (30-bit, 4:4:4). The KVM extender also supports audio transmission via the DisplayPort interface, eliminating the need for additional audio modules and enabling playback of the audio signal on monitors with integrated loudspeakers. It is also possible to integrate optional Draco vario upgrade modules for digital audio input and output and for data signals such as USB 2.0 and RS-232.
Other technology that will be on display from IHSE includes: the new Draco KVM Extender unit with OPS+; Draco vario USB 3.0 extender, and Tera Viewer for graphical monitoring and switching of KVM Systems
