Monroe, NJ (PressExposure) April 15, 2011 -- IHSE USA announced the introduction of the Draco Compact HD-KVM Extender, a high performance device that enables broadcast; post production, visual media, and scientific imaging companies to extend full-motion video up to 80 Km away. The Draco extender provides high definition digital video transmission of DVI signals up to resolutions of 1920X1200 or 2048X1152, with almost zero latency. These extenders combine multiple video encoding technologies created by IHSE to deliver the very best picture while a pixel mapping ratio of 1:1 ensures authentic display of the source video. In addition, USB HID, High Speed USB 2.0, analog or digital audio and serial data signals can be extended to distances up to 80 km.
With IHSE's Intelligent Video Encoding, the Draco Compact Extenders optimize infrastructure bandwidth usage to maximize the user experience in environments where outstanding visual display is critical to the business. When there is a need to deliver full motion video, the Draco Extender has the capability to process full screen moving video in real time without artifacts and almost zero latency. Performance is as if you were there, but with the power of being somewhere else up to 80 Km away.
"We love the outstanding video performance at HD resolutions and we were able to use our existing copper cabling which saved installation time and infrastructure expense," said Michael H. Amundson, Post Production Editor at FRONTLINE / WGBH in Boston.
"The Draco Compact HD-KVM Extender helped us gain back valuable rack space because they replaced a pieced together solution that really did not work that well. Mouse & tablet latency issues are now history and our engineers/editors can spend time working instead of troubleshooting."
Outstanding video color accuracy makes the Draco KVM Switches a smart choice for color controlled environments such as broadcast; post production, visual media, and scientific imaging. Integration of 3rd party HID input devices such as trackballs and Wacom tablets are seamlessly supported.
