The Draco Tera is the perfect high performance, modular enterprise routing system for complete signal distribution of high definition video, audio, and data over CATx, multi-mode or singlemode fiber optic cable supporting up to 576 I/O ports in a single frame. Each chassis can be configured as either a bi-directional HD-KVM switch for video and data or as a high definition video routing switcher for DVI, VGA, and other high definition video signals.


Designed with performance and flexibility in mind, the Draco Tera offers tremendous scalability with cost effective features. Offered in four chassis sizes, systems can be configured for 48 ports in 3U, 80 ports in 4U, 160 ports in 9U, 288 ports in 13U and up to 576 ports in 25U.  Each port can be user configured as an input or an output scalable from one CPU to multiple workstations or with multiple CPU’s managed by a single workstation console. The Draco Tera is designed around a non-blocking switch technology which handles digital video resolutions up to 2K and 4K images while also supporting data paths for USB 2.0, USB 30, bi-directional audio, and serial data interfaces.


Each Draco tera enterprise chassis supports full redundant power and hot swappable modules for full service and field upgrades without interrupting signal flow. Each chassis can be controlled via an external control system such as Crestron, AMX, or other third party control interface. Additionally, an OSD (On Screen Display) can be accessed via simple keyboard commands and viewed directly from a workstation console. The Draco Tera is equipped with Flex-Port Technology which allows each I/O port complete flexibility to be configured as an input or output port, so each port can be used for a console or CPU. 


Handling extender connections is a simple operation. As each Draco extender is connected, and power applied, the module will automatically negotiate an ID port which will be stored in the switch processor control module.  Once this process is completed, the Draco extender will retain this port ID to the system even if the module is moved to another physical cable connection.  In addition, extender definitions automatically determine the device ports to ensure source signals such as USB 2.0 High Speed, Dual Head Video, and audio are all switched synchronously.
