IHSE to Demonstrate the Extension and Switching of Virtual and Augmented Reality Signals

At Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) in Amsterdam, IHSE will be introducing a solution to extend and switch immersive reality signals over long distances using Draco KVM systems.

The new solution addresses growing interest in virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) systems in a wide variety of pro AV market sectors; in corporate and education applications such as product design and prototyping; in situational training and advanced control environments; and in retail and leisure applications including cinemas, shops, and museums.

Extending the distance between source computers and users and switching between VR/AR applications, are real challenges today. IHSE’s Draco KVM solutions allow high-performance computers for VR/AR systems, CAVEs and large LED walls to be located at a remote distance of up to 80 kilometers. Only a single CatX or fiber connection is required to extend a VR/AR system.

This remote model adds convenience and security while simplifying the setup of immersive reality installations, many of which are in constricted or public locations. A Draco KVM matrix switch enables users to switch multiple VR/AR headsets in different locations to centralized high-performance computers located in a secure room. This approach eliminates the need to locate expensive PC hardware equipment close to users or to purchase multiple high-performance computers. Redundancy options for mission critical systems are also available.

IHSE USA is here.
