High performance in compact form - the new ControlCenter-Compact

The ControlCenter-Compact is available in 8C, 16C, 32C, 48C, 64C and 80C variants, each with 8, 16, 32, 48, 64 or 80 CAT-based ports. Fiber and mixed variants with the same number of ports are also available.

Thanks to its dynamic port technology, each interface can be used as an input or output for connecting computers or simultaneous workstations.

The ControlCenter Compact series is fully compatible with DVICenter, ControlCenter-Digital and the end components for computer and workstation connections. These also include the DP1.2 vision systems with which latency-free signal transmission of 4K video at a full 60 Hz repetition rate through the matrix is possible.

FeaturesDetailsApplication

CrossDisplay-Switching

As a part of the expansion module "TS function", CrossDisplay-Switching enables users to switch between channels simply by moving the mouse. The mouse acts as if on a “virtual desktop” and can be moved seamlessly across the connected displays. Moving the cursor from the active to another display, the keyboardmouse focus automatically switches to the connected computer.

Now users can create an intuitive multi-monitor console and use the mouse to easily switch between channels.

Monitoring & SNMP

The DC-Monitoring feature enables you to detect the system status of G&D devices.
The web interface of the particular device provides information that can be sent (SNMP trap) or queried (SNMP GET) as well.

Dynamic Ports

The dynamic ports of the ControlCenter-Compact are usable for computer or user modules. The ControlCenter-Compact identifies automatically if a computer module or console module is connected.

Channel grouping

In addition to combining multiple computers to a console, the ControlCenter-Compact also supports multi-monitor workstations for computers with several video outputs. Here, multiple channels can easily be combined as channel groups.

As always, you can administrate all functions in the ControlCenter-Compact web interface. In addition to multiple screens, you can include other signals in these groups. The system also transmits and switches transparent USB2.0 signals as well
as RS232.

USB-Pinning

If multiple ControlCenter-Compact ports are grouped as multi-channel configuration,
the new USB pinning function enables you to hold the USB transmission on the current computer even when switching to another channel. In this case the USB transmission is not interruped but transmitted to the end.

Safety

  • Boot loader, operating system and firmware  form a trusted computing platform to protect the system against third-party manipulations
  • integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) protects any access and configuration data against exposure with  RSA encryption process
  • Failover connection (if the central module fails, you can establish a direct connection between user module and computer module and still operate the system). This feature is provided with a cable length of max. 140m.
  • Support of external authentication via LDAP, Active Directory, TACACS+, Radius
  • Redundant power supply

Device

  • Firmware expansion for preparing the switching over network (IP-Control-API)

 

Applications for ControlCenter-Compact

Due to its dynamic port assignment, the ControlCenter-Compact is suitable for use in all applications in which a large number of computers are to be operated by several simultaneous workstations.

Thanks to the wide range of different computers and workstation modules, the ControlCenter-Compact can adapt to changing requirements. Areas of application are e.g. in control rooms, OB vans or any kind of control room.
