G&D KVM Systems Support Broadcast Workflow
At IBC2018, Guntermann & Drunck presented its systems in cooperation with equipment from broadcast manufacturers such as Ross Video, Sharp, BFE and the video wall specialists from VuWall. At booth 1.D39, G&D exhibited many KVM highlights such as the brand-new matrix system for KVM-over-IP. Even the largest IT installations can now be easily scaled and implemented over IP access.
G&D showcased its new IP matrix system live by arranging a typical broadcast control room application. This application consists of several computers and video servers which can be accessed via KVM-over-IP, a Carbonate Black 2 Panel video mixer from Ross Video and a live camera that feeds live signals to the Ross video server via SDI. The large screen used in the application is controlled with VuScape – a high-performance video wall controller. Thus images can be displayed completely flexibly over several cubes. Furthermore, BFE’s popular broadcast control system KSC Core including operating panel is integrated to perfectly operate control rooms. This enables fast and intuitive control of the entire broadcast chain.
G&D’s KVM matrix systems can be quickly and easily linked to original broadcast equipment and thus support an optimal and efficient broadcast workflow. Even with physically remote computers, producers have the right technology at hand at all times and can operate live cameras, video walls, control panels, mixing consoles and other input devices as usual.
