At InfoComm, Apantac debuted a unique KVM over IP solution for the popular openGear platform – the OG-KVM-IPTx. With Its mix-and-match configuration, openGear is a popular standard in the broadcast industry. Apantac has built many Professional AV products (with broadcast quality) for the openGear platform, including solutions based on HDBaseT technology, multiviewers with KVM functionalities, converters and splitters. This new KVM over IP card is compact and reliable. It is modular, hot swappable and hot pluggable. Up to 20 OG-KVM-IP-Tx boards can fit into a single 2RU frame with built-in redundant power supplies and network management. Since, it is based on the openGear standard, system integrators can also mix and match different cards from multiple manufactures in a single frame, depending on their application and needs. When combined with the Apantac KVM over IP receiver and an off-the-shelf Gigabit Ethernet switch that supports IGMP and Jumbo frame, Apantac’s KVM over IP solution allows multiple users to have access to multiple computers with both fiber and copper outputs. The OG-KVM-IP-Tx supports both copper and fiber outputs. The product was designed using the broadcast-quality standard openGear platform, yet geared towards the professional AV marketplace.
