  • Addressing market demand for increased security conditions when connecting multiple computers to a single workstation area, IHSE now offers a compact two-port KVM switching solution for extended-distance connections between computer sources and user stations. The new 2x1 system makes is possible to leverage multiple computers or servers at one desk by utilizing a single keyboard, mouse, and display. Thanks to the company’s award-winning Draco vario 481 series extenders for HDMI, signals can be shared across long distances over a single fiber or Cat-X connection with perfect video quality and zero mouse latency. This new two-port package from IHSE offers convenience, enhanced security, and performance superior to that afforded by fixed-box solutions.

    “With our new two-port KVM switching package for HDMI, users can connect high-definition signals from multiple computers over far greater distances — up to 140 meters over category 5e/6 cables or up to 10 kilometers using single-mode fiber — without losing quality or performance,” said Dan Holland, marketing manager for IHSE USA. “This complete KVM package offering makes it easier than ever to optimize operators’ workspaces and workflows while improving their access to the data and applications on remote computer sources.”

    The two-port 481 systems include two transmitter units (TX) and one receiver (RX) to support HDMI video and USB HID for keyboard and mouse. The TX units include HDMI and USB HID for connection to computer sources, while the RX unit includes two input data connection links and ports for a display, keyboard, and mouse. In addition, the RX unit includes an extra HDMI port and USB port to capture computer signals located at the user station. Offered as a compact distributed system solution, these separate extender units from IHSE provide a desirable alternative to fixed-box solutions that require all the CPU cables to connect directly to the box at the workstation location.

    At the operator’s station, a 481 series extender RX unit provides two input links to accept signals from computer sources positioned many feet or miles away from the workstation. Operators thus can work over a direct connection across buildings or floor levels without losing any signal quality. While the system relies on basic network-style connections such as Cat 5e or LC fiber, the transmission itself is a closed system protocol that helps to limit cyber-attacks that are normally associated with networked solutions.

    The extra HDMI and USB connections on the RX unit allow operators to plug in a third computer at the workstation. From a single keyboard and mouse, the operator can take advantage of quick keyboard shortcuts to select any of the two remote computers or run a local laptop or desktop. By supporting two remote computer sources and one local computer, the new IHSE KVM switching package effectively serves as a 3x1 system.

    Some applications require computer access at the device while the operator is in some remote location. To address this requirement, an optional package feature includes local looping outputs as well as a remote computer extender (on the CPU side) that allows users to add another HDMI display for monitoring. With this feature, network administrators or staff working in control room environments can easily monitor the actions being taken at the connected workstation.

  • IHSE USA today announced an expansion of its successful Draco vario series with the new Draco vario Remote IP CPU extender module. The device enables the integration of virtual servers into existing Draco tera KVM physical switch systems. This first-of-its-kind virtual KVM solution results in a streamlined multitasking virtual environment where multiple operating systems and applications can be accessed directly from the physical consoles of the Draco KVM system.  

    This new device is particularly suited to control rooms with virtualized process automation, network operations centers that require real-time access to real and virtual target devices, and TV and film industry environments that rely increasingly on virtualized desktops. Virtualization makes KVM infrastructures simpler and more efficient, allowing applications to deploy faster while reducing costs as compared with alternative methods. IP CPU is suited to safety-critical applications requiring extremely fast access to information.

    With the new IP CPU extender module, users can access virtual machines directly from their own KVM-connected workstations via remote desktop protocol (RDP) or perform simple PC maintenance remotely. The extensive functionality of the Draco KVM system offers options such as real-time switching; sharing; private mode; and flexible, unrestricted access to all connected computers and virtual machines. For example, companies that have different departmental or branch office applications written for different operating systems can consolidate them under one virtual server and access them all directly from the physical KVM console.

    Users can now access multiple sessions at once because a single Draco vario Remote IP CPU extender module allows multiple sessions to run in parallel. Sessions can be displayed and operated either individually in full-screen or in multiview configuration, such as in 2 x 2 or larger videowalls.

    In addition to allowing RDP access of remote and virtual machines, the Remote IP CPU lets users operate secure shell sessions (SSH) from the workstation to enable device management and network control. The module also supports computer remote access via VNC protocol.

    The Remote IP CPU is built on a compact Draco vario design and includes full thin client functionality, eliminating the need for a separate thin client for RDP access. Using the IP CPU solution creates a more cost-effective and space-saving solution by eliminating the need for additional physical servers that are more complex and take up a lot more space.

    The structure of the IHSE system management software provides unified control management for configuring the virtual network, integrated IP CPU thin client configuration, physical KVM extender configuration, and all the specific configuration needs of the KVM matrix system. The result is a simplified KVM digital control system that manages the entire virtual and physical connections in one environment.

    “The use of virtualization is growing more important in the world of KVM technology, and people are beginning to see how it can work more efficiently to save money and lower overall digital display management cost. They no longer need to access those critical components through two separate systems. Instead, they can now access and control both through one homogeneous solution,” said Dan Holland, marketing manager for IHSE USA. “Not only does the new Remote IP CPU deliver the same level of flexibility and performance people expect from IHSE KVM matrix switch systems, but it also allows applications to deploy faster while efficiently utilizing the processing performance that comes from integrating virtual servers.”
