Port matrix switch for KVM and SDI formats

IHSE USA has expanded its Draco tera enterprise series with the new 576 port matrix switch for KVM and SDI formats. Ideal for signal distribution of high definition video, audio, and data over twisted-pair copper, multi-mode fiber, or singlemode fiber, each 576 frame can be configured as either a bi-directional HD-KVM switch for video and data or as a high definition video routing switcher for DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA. Other high definition video signals such as HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and USB 3.0 are supported with the optional UNI-IO high-speed I/O cards. Using the company’s Flex-Port technology, each matrix port can be user configured as an input or an output. The 576 Draco tera is based on a non-blocking switch technology allowing full access and sharing of every port. Each front-load plug-in I/O card can handle up to eight ports making it easy to configure systems in either square or rectangular I/O sizes. The 576 Draco tera enterprise 25RU chassis supports full redundant power and hot swappable modules for full service and field upgrades without interrupting signal flow. Additionally, the 576 supports dual controller cards. With the advanced control interface, operators have the option to manage switching through an OSD (on screen display), a browser-based Java tool, or an RS-232 serial interface. The frame can also be controlled via any third-party external control system with the available API protocol design package.
