IHSE’s Draco Compact XV 16x8 Fiber Matrix system for Dual Head display workstations continues to advance the standard for next generation digital AV distribution, delivering the world’s first Dual Head 4K KVM Matrix solution. Based on IHSE’s instant switching technology, the Draco XV 4K matrix system is designed to meet the extreme bandwidth requirements for sharing multiple UHD and DCI Cinema video signals in the same switch fabric.
IHSE has been championing high performance, future-proof KVM matrix systems for nearly 35 years and now breaks new barriers in simplifying system design by offering a pre-packaged KVM matrix system for Dual-Head 4K based on DisplayPort 1.2 devices. The Draco compact XV 16x8 Fiber Matrix System is a fixed size KVM system supporting up to 16 Dual Head 4K computers and 8 Dual Head 4K monitors at resolutions up to 4096x2160 60fps, and 4:4:4 color sampling on each display. For systems using extended display setting where the desktop is extended across both displays, IHSE provides internal synchronization for each extender enabling perfect timing for seamless resolutions up to 8192x2160.
The Draco compact XV 16X8 matrix system is specifically designed for small to mid-sized KVM switch system requiring the latest 4K ultra high resolution displays. It is a simple operation to set up and configure the matrix with the on-screen display (OSD) or through the included draco tera tool software for configuration and real-time diagnostics. For those who prefer a third party control application, the Draco compact XV 16x8 matrix system can be configured to operate with many popular control systems using the optional IHSE API protocol package.
IHSE’s Flex-port technology provides a huge time savings for system installers who normally have to pre-configure ports to specific I/O requirements. The Draco compact XV 16x8 switch system includes instant switching technology for incredible speed. Switching between sources is glitch-free and instantaneous thus reducing eye strain and annoying video tearing found with other systems. With the small footprint and ruggedized chassis design, the Draco compact XV 16x8 compact is the perfect KVM space-saving solution where centralized switching of KVM is necessary. It is especially suited for command and control, broadcast and post-production, energy management, air traffic control, simulation and visualization and other advanced venues where video-rich applications are used.
Features and Benefits
Build a more efficient workspace with two UHD displays.
Power users can access both displays using a single keyboard and mouse. This system is perfect for many professions requiring mission critical visualization such as defense, military, air traffic control, simulation, 3D virtualization, energy management and geospatial mapping.
Increase user productivity
With ultra-fast speed, switching between sources is glitch-free and instantaneous thus reducing eye strain and annoying video tearing and refresh delays normally found with other systems. Macro keys can be configured to quickly access favorite sources or be used for quickly changing operational display orientation at the same workstation when used for different operations
Reduce cabling hassles with extended connectivity over fiber optics.
Unlike traditional DisplayPort matrix systems with physical copper connections on the main frame the Draco compact XV 16x8 takes away the constrained limits between connected devices. System Installers now have the flexibility of using single duplex fiber optic cable to separate sources and destinations up to 5Km between extenders and the switch frame.
Compact frame size reduces rack space requirements.
With the small footprint and ruggedized chassis design, the Draco compact XV 16x8 is the perfect KVM space-saving solution where centralized switching of KVM is necessary. This makes the Draco compact XV 16x8 the perfect KVM matrix solution where rack space is limited.
Built to simplify setup and configuration
The Draco compact XV 16x8 matrix switch offers an internal network control port and an RS-232 port for third party control systems. The built-in redundant power supply design reduces the potential for down time. User friendly operations, setup and troubleshooting tools are provided through an easy OSD configuration or via IHSE’s draco tera tool software to make setting up a complete multi-room dual head workstation simple and easy.
