Extenders transmit HD video over DisplayPort interface
A family of custom KVM extenders has been expanded with the introduction of DisplayPort versions. The Draco vario DisplayPort extenders, introduced by IHSE, enable the transmission of HD video and audio data over the DisplayPort interface. DisplayPort, an increasingly popular interface, transmits video and audio signals simultaneously, supports the highest display resolutions, incorporates mechanical locking and is compatible with VGA, DVI and HDMI interfaces. This enables a gradual upgrade to extender models.
Providing visually lossless extension of DisplayPort signals, the extenders are compatible with Draco tera KVM matrix switches and are cross-compatible with the DVI and HDMI extender series for video and USB-HID extension. Transfer of fully-digital video signals (including 3D video in full-HD) is supported in 4K resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 und 3840 x 2160.
Supporting all regular digital audio standards, the extenders eliminate the need for additional audio modules, enabling playback of the audio signal through monitors with integrated loudspeakers. Integration of optional upgrade modules for digital audio input and output is also possible.
Offered in either single or redundant path variants, redundant data links increase system resilience and prevent system failures. Various upgrades to extend legacy video standards and convert analog signals are also available.
The Draco vario DisplayPort extenders will be demonstrated at IBC in Amsterdam, 12-16 September 2014.
