IHSE USA Announces Draco Prepackaged HDMI 2.0 Matrix KVM System

IHSE USA today introduced Draco compact ultra, a prepackaged KVM matrix solution for HDMI 2.0. Supporting configurations offered as 16×8 to 32×16, the Draco compact ultra enables switching of HDMI 2.0 computer video with embedded stereo audio and USB-HID for keyboard and mouse connections.

Draco compact ultra features IHSE’s Flex-Port technology enabling pre-configuring ports to specific I/O requirements. The new solution is designed for command and control, broadcast and postproduction, energy management, air traffic control, simulation and visualization.

Draco compact ultra is built on IHSE’s Draco ultra series extender platform and utilizes the Fraunhofer Institute’s Lightweight Image (Lici) codec. Each Draco compact ultra matrix system includes a full set of transmitter and receiver modules supporting 4K resolutions and I/O connections up to 4096×2160 and 3840×2160 at a real 60-Hz refresh rate and full color depth (10 bit, 4:4:4).

Through Flex-Port technology, the Draco compact ultra extender is able to auto-sense individual units through any available port on the chassis. Simply connecting the extender to the chassis enables the internal firmware to recognize and auto-configure the port as a computer (CPU) or console device (CON).

All the specs are here.
