DP-Vision - transmission of DisplayPort™ signals via CAT or fibre optics

The system consists of a computer module (transmitter) and a user module (receiver) and enables you to operate a computer on a local or remote console.

DP-Vision uses CAT-x cables or fibre optics to transmit signals up to 10,000 m. The devices use DisplayPort video and are available as variants displaying 1, 2 or 4 video channels. It is also possible to transmit transparent USB 2.0, RS232 and audio signals.

With its network port, the web interface and monitoring functions, the DVI-Vision system offers important features for mission-critical applications.

Transmission

DP-Vision systems are available as CAT or Fiber variants. These differ by the used transmission cable between the CPU and CON module.

CAT-x cable

The signals are transmitted via copper cables. You can reach up to 140 m transmission length with this cable type.

Fibre optics

Big distances are bridgeable with fibre optics. The signals can be transmitted by multimode or singlemode fibers up to 10,000 m.

Screen-Freeze Function

If the console module loses the video signal due to a broken connection or a problem with the computer's graphics card, the Screen-Freeze function "freezes" the last displayed image of the monitor. This state is highlighted by a red semi-transparent frame. The function is automatically cancelled when the display receives an active video signal.

Monitoring

With the Monitoring function, you can auto-output device status messages to Syslog servers or SNMP. The web interface lets you monitor the device manually. The Monitoring function of the DP-Vision queries the following values:

  • Proactive monitoring of device states
     
  • Event reporting function (Syslog or SNMP traps)
  • Status power supply unit (on/off)
  • Status temperature threshold device (in/over limit)
  • Status connection cables (ok/nok)
  • Status computer (on/off)
  • Status image signal graphics card computer (available/not available)
  • Status network
  • Fan monitoring
  • Status SFP modules (in -Fiber variants)
  • Status interfaces (CPU and CON modules)
  • Freeze status (all channels)
  • Type of display (local and remote)

System update

  • Over the config panel

Video channels

  • Single-channel
  • Multi-channel 2
  • Multi-channel 4

USB transmission

  • "U" variants: integrated USB 2.0 transmission without an additional transmission cable. This variant offers transfer speed up to 16 Mbit/s.
  • "U2" variants: USB 2.0 transmission with an additional cable. This solution reaches the HiSpeed transfer rate of 480 Mbit/s.

Transmission medium

  • DP-Vision-CAT variants: transmission via CAT-x cables
  • DP-Vision-Fiber variants: transmission via multimode or singlemode fiber optics

Communication with KVM-NetworkCenter

DP-Vision uses the network to communicate with the appliance KVM-NetworkCenter. When deploying more than one DP-Vision, you can query and configure the devices by using the KVM-NetworkCenter.

The Installation

Link the computer to the back of the DP-Vision transmitter. Distinctive cables connect the computer's keyboard, video, mouse, audio, RS232, and USB interfaces to the DP-Vision computer module.

Installing the user console is just as easy: simply connect the operating hardware with the corresponding interfaces of the DP-Vision receiver.

Use the existing cabling structure to link transmitter and receiver.
