DP-Vision-IP – DisplayPort signal transmission over standard IP-based networks, CAT, layer 3

The DP-Vision-IP system consists of a computer module (transmitter) and a user module (receiver). DisplayPort image data is processed according to DP1.1a. Thus, the maximum possible image resolution of a pixel rate will be between 25MPixel/s up to 600MPixel/s.

The video, keyboard, mouse and control data are encrypted with AES-128


The transmission is compressed, pixel perfect, with low latency and ideal hand-eye coordination on CAT infrastructure over standard IP networks on layer 3 even beyond optional network components. (NAT is not supported at the moment). By means of manual bandwidth management, the transmission can be adapted to a wide range of bandwidth requirements.


The DP-Vision-IP uses G&D’s KVM-over-IP™ transmission. The transmission is based on layer 3 IP networks over gigabit ethernet. The device provides one network interface for transmission, web interface, monitoring, SNMP and updates. The integrated web interface lets users configure and update the device. On top of this, an OSD is provided to configure and operate the device at the console.

Until the devices are manually reconfigured, they are interconnected via the safety functions. Due to predefined IP addresses, plug & play is supported for a console and a target that are connected via CAT cable without a network infrastructure.

DP-Vision-IP is not compatible to G&D devices of other series. G&D’s KVM-over-IP™ technology provides further flexibility compared to systems with dedicated cabling. With transmission over IP structures the medium can be shared and the distance for remote access virtually becomes unlimited.

Configuration and safety

Encrypted video, keyboard, mouse and control data with AES-128

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.


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

  • Proactive monitoring of device status
  • 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
  • Status interfaces (CPU and CON modules)
  • Freeze status (all channels)
