DP1.2-Vision - transmission of DisplayPort 1.2 signals via CAT or fiber 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.

With its network port, the web interface and monitoring functions, the DP1.2-Vision system offers important features for mission-critical applications.

Transmission

DP1.2-Vision systems are available as CAT or fiber variants. These differ by the used transmission cable between the sender and receiver module. The DisplayPort KVM extender uses CAT-x cables or fiber optics to transmit signals up to 140 m (CAT) or up to 10,000 m (Fiber). The devices use DisplayPort 1.2 video and are available as single and multi channel variant. It is also possible to transmit transparent USB 2.0, RS232 and audio signals.

CAT-x-cable

The signals are transmitted via copper cables. You can reach up to 140 m transmission length with this cable type. These variants have a transmission bandwith up to 1Gbit/s.

Fiber optics

Big distances are bridgeable with fiber optics. The signals can be transmitted by multimode or singlemode fibers up to 10,000 m. These variants have a transmission bandwith up to 3,125Gbit/s

Embedding KVM extenders in digital KVM matrix systems

To be prepared for growing installations, the integrated matrix support turns the DP1.2-Vision into a future-proof investment.

This way, it is possible to include extenders at a later point into one of the digital G&D matrix systems within an existing installation. Thus, users benefit from more flexibility through distributed access - and any existing components can still be used as before.

Monitoring

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 DP1.2-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)

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 again.

Installation

Link the computer to the back of the DP1.2-Vision transmitter. Distinctive cables connect the computer's keyboard, video, mouse, audio, RS232, and USB interfaces to the DP1.2-Vision computer module.

Installing the user console is just as easy: simply connect the operating hardware with the corresponding interfaces of the DP1.2-Vision receiver.

Use the existing cabling structure to link transmitter and receiver.
