IHSE USA Introduces New Extenders for the ‘Draco™ Major’ DVI KVM Matrix Switch

LAS VEGAS , June 7 /PRNewswire/ — Infocomm — IHSE USA introduces the first ever combined CATx  and Fiber switching system for the Broadcast, Post Production Editing, and Data Center Markets.  The Draco Major DVI KVM Matrix switch combined with IHSE USA's new Draco Extenders offers increased performance, better ergonomics, reduced power usage as well as the ability to mix and match CATx and or Fiber connections between user consoles and target video sources.  No other KVM switch manufacturer can connect video sources from distances of miles to a KVM switch via fiber optic cable and switch to a user console connected via a copper CATx cable without a media adapter/translator.  The new Draco Extenders provide transparent connections between fiber and copper infrastructures, thus offering the greatest flexibility of deployment available today.

In addition to the seamless medium translation, IHSE USA's new Draco Extenders offer increased performance through doubled compression efficiency and optimized memory access for maximum frame rate at 1920×1200 resolutions.  

All connection ports have been located on the same side of the CPU or Console unit for ease of cabling and rack space ergonomics.

EDID and DDC transmission is now accessible via a simple Hot Key sequence at the console.

Optimized GPU and Monitor sensing make it a greener device by providing reduced energy usage and operating temperatures so cool that no fans are required.

Integration of 3rd party HID input devices such as Wacom tablets are seamlessly supported.

These new Draco Extenders combined with the Draco Major DVI KVM Switch provide the features and performance at a price point long awaited by the Broadcast & Post Production Editing market.
