DP-Vision-IP – extends DisplayPort signals over standard IP-based networks on layer 3

The KVM-over-IP extender system DP-Vision-IP extends DisplayPort 1.1a, Keyboard/mouse (USB and PS/2), Audio + RS232 and USB HID Generic. The system processes DisplayPort 1.1a image data pixel-perfectly and with very good hand-eye coordination. The maximum possible image resolution corresponds to a pixel rate of 25MPixel/s up to 300MPixel/s.

Signals are transmitted in compressed form using CAT cabling or optical fibers as well as over IP-based networks on layer 3 – even across network boundaries. DP-Vision-IP systems consist of a computer module (transmitter) and a console module (receiver) and facilitate the remote operation of a computer. By means of manual bandwidth management, the transmission can be adapted to a wide range of bandwidth requirements. Video, keyboard, mouse and control data is 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.

Operating principle

Extenders of the DP-Vision-IP series use G&D’s KVM-over-IP™ technology to transmit signals. The transmission is based on IP networks over gigabit Ethernet (OSI model, layer 3). The devices include with a network interface for transmitting data, WebIF, configuration, monitoring, SNMP and updates. They are also equipped with a management network interface that provides all of the above functions in addition to data transmission.

For monitoring, DP-Vision-IP uses G&D’s proven monitoring and SNMP technology. The system can be configured by via web interface or OSD.

Due to predefined IP addresses, plug & play is supported for both console and computer modules. Therefore, it couldn’t be easier to use existing network infrastructures or CAT cables or optical fibres in a 1:1 connection to put the modules into operation. Within the KVM-over-IP product family, the different extender variants are compatible with each other, allowing any mixmatching of different video interfaces on console and computer modules.

However, data transmission with KVM-over-IP technology is not compatible with classic KVM extenders from G&D. G&D’s KVM-over-IP technology can be used extremely flexible. The KVM-over-IP extenders can be operated in a matrix mode using an additional control unit, the ControlCenter-IP. This allows the distribution and sharing of signals within a LAN infrastructure. Users can also access their systems within the LAN network regardless of actual ranges.

Screen freeze function

If the receiver loses the video signal due to a broken connection or a problem with the computer‘s graphics card, the Screenfreeze function „freezes“ the image last displayed on the monitor. This status 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.
