IHSE USA introduces the new Draco tera compact 16/32/48 HD-KVM 1RU switchers

Cranbury, New Jersey – November 12, 2012IHSE USA products offer the most comprehensive, multi-format solutions for HD-KVM switching of keyboard, video, audio, USB 2.0, data and mouse signals which will be demonstrated live at Content and Communications World (CCW) held at the Javits Convention Center, NY, November 14-15 (Booth 736).  Centerpiece to the product offerings will be the Draco tera family of matrix switch solutions featuring one of the broadest selections of HD-KVM routers - including the newest Draco tera compact family.  Designed to provide high return on investment, the Draco tera compact supports the highest quality DVI-D, VGA, Audio, USB and serial data using the same 1RU frame for a 16/32/48 port HD-KVM switching.  The Draco tera compact family of HD-KVM matrix switchers combine the features of adaptability, reliability and serviceability that A/V professionals demand. The Draco family of matrix switchers are perfect for small and medium post production workgroups where people need to easily setup and share a large number of display screens or CPU’s.  The Draco tera compact can also be used to manage video distribution in classroom facilities, graphic design studios, or other command and control decision rooms.


Because Draco tera compact matrix switchers offers a highly effective plug-and-play solution to save setup time, System Integrators find these matrix solutions offer great cost advantages by simplifying the complexity of input and outputs needed between computers and displays. Traditionally, buyers of KVM equipment had to manually select a fixed I/O matrix size to patch input and output cables between CPU and console devices; now, the Draco tera compact eliminates this problem with its unique dynamic flex-port technology. With flex-port technology, each bi-directional Cat5e/Cat6 port is automatically configured through the frame controller with a unique input or output port number once an extender is discovered. Using Draco CATx extenders, any CPU or CONSOLE extender can be hot-plugged into any port on the matrix, thus making it easy to create any combination of rectangular or square size input and output configurations.


The Draco tera compact provides an intelligent management solution with every Draco tera compact switch. Setup and installation is simplified between the Draco extenders and the switch controller OS. As Draco extenders are connected to the matrix ports and powered, a discovery process reports the active device to the switch controller with a unique identification number (ID) and stores the associated extender properties. The controller recognizes the device type and assigns it properties as a CPU or console extender. Once the extender is registered, it can be relocated to any other port without losing properties. Unique properties such as dual-head, USB 2.0, digital audio and serial port details can be accessed through the OSD with a single key stroke. Short-cut functions like user defined favorite lists, on screen display access from every console, access rights management and multi-head switch commands allow for immediate user adjustments or diagnostics.


The Draco compact series of extenders provides instant screen refresh for the ultimate performance in source-to-source switching. With our exclusive CODEC design switch times occur almost instantaneously with none of the aggravating visual resync or timeout image displays found in IP-type switchers.  Another great advantage of the Draco tera compact switcher is its ability to perform as both a router and repeater.  Distances of up to 140m (400 ft) on either input or output side using Cat5e can be achieved, thus providing an aggregate of 280m (800 ft) between CPU and Console devices.


At the heart of each Draco tera compact matrix are precision control parameters for 24/7 operations. Each Draco tera compact can be configured via an on screen display (OSD), Java software application or serial interface using third party control environments. A full range of control adjustments and setup menus allow quick and easy setup for setting up multi-head devices, user access control and video display adjustments. Advanced features can be set in the Java tool to extend switching flexibility for custom macros, switch favorites and local switch settings. Additionally, each matrix support SNMP and SYSLOG functions for integration into full scale network managing software.
