IHSE’s 480 XV KVM Matrix wins “Best of Show” award from Sound & Video Contractor at InfoComm 2015

Cranbury, New Jersey – June 30, 2015-IHSE USA is proud to announce the 480 XV KVM Matrix was selected as “Best of Show” winner by Sound & Video Contractor during the InfoComm 2015 Conference and Exhibition held in Orlando Florida June 17-19. The on-site judging processing was completed by a panel of AV-industry experts who evaluated products against multiple criteria including innovation; performance against category standards; richness/relevance of features and value/ROI.

“This is great honor for our company and we are proud to have the 480 XV KVM Matrix selected for this important industry award.” said Dan E. Holland, Marketing Manager for IHSE USA. “We’re excited about our role as the leading player in 4K KVM solutions and this award proves the AV industry has confidence and trust in the IHSE USA brand.”

The 480 series of Draco Compact matrix switchers in a new XV (eXtreme Velocity) fiber optic version supporting video resolutions up to 4K. The 480 XV is offered in 8 ports, 16 ports, 32 ports and 48 ports models in a 1RU frame and 64 ports and 80 ports in a 2RU frame. This makes the 480XV the perfect KVM matrix solution where rack space is limited and 4K distribution is planned. The 480 XV supports the Draco vario extenders for 4K DisplayPort as well as our current Dual-Link DVI and HDMI extender models. Auxiliary bi-directional data transports for digital audio, analog audio, USB 2.0 and RS-232 can also be transported over the same fiber interconnects between the matrix and extenders.

The 480XV uses IHSE’s Flex-port technology which provides a huge time savings for system installers who normally have to pre-configure ports to specific I/O requirements. The 480 XV compact switch system includes instant switching technology for all the popular video formats up to and including 3840 x 2160 for DisplayPort at 4K. 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. With the small footprint and ruggedized chassis design, the 480 XV compact is the perfect KVM space-saving solution where centralized switching of KVM is necessary. It is especially suited for mobile broadcasting, command and control systems, board rooms, production studios, and small class rooms.

Outboard extenders can be connected with fiber optics up to 10km from any port. The 480 XV can auto-sense the extender type through any available port on the chassis. By simply connecting the extender to the chassis, the internal control software will recognize and auto configure the port as an input or output device. I/O ports on the frame are based on standard MSA compliant SFP modules for singlemode fiber using Duplex LC connections.
