DP1.2-VisionXG - the awarded KVM extender system for native 4K-UltraHD resolution

The DisplayPort™ KVM extender system DP1.2-VisionXG consists of a computer module (transmitter) and a user module (receiver) and facilitates the remote operation of one computer. At each module, a console can be connected.

For the perfect hand eye coordination, the latency free transmission takes place over fiber. Uncompressed, pixel perfect and lossless up to
  • 400 m over a pair of multimode fibers (50/125 µm, 4.700 MHz*km, OM4)
  • 10,000 m over a pair of singlemode fiber (9/125 µm, 2,000 MHz*km, OS1)
The devices are available as variants displaying one or two video channels. (Displaying four channels in preparation)
With its network port, the web interface and monitoring functions, syslog and SNMP, the DP1.2-VisionXG system offers important features for mission-critical applications.

Product details


Native 4K UltraHD resolution for DisplayPort™

  • supports 4K and UltraHD resolutions at 60Hz
  • supports 8K resolutions at 30Hz using two video channels
  • supports 8K resolutions at 60Hz using four video channels (in preparation)
  • uncompressed video transmission, pixelperfect, absolutly lossless and latency free.

Supports DDC/CI protocol

The DP1.2-VisionXG extender systems now offer support for the DDC/CI protocol. Thus, the screens in the control room can be automatically configured and the brightness of the screens, for example, is simply adjusted to the external light conditions.


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 DP1.2-VisionXG 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 cable (ok/nok)
  • Status computer (on/off)
  • Status image signal graphics card computer (available/not available)
  • Status of access settings (what rights are assigned to the user?)
  • Status: Peripherials, monitors, video signal, USB 2.0
  • Monitoring: Availability of the network interface
  • Monitoring: Fan status

Easier access with SNMP tool Zabbix

For customers who are not yet using extensive SNMP tools, G&D offer a simple way to use the functions included in the devices. Templates for the open source tool Zabbix are provided here. The program lets users monitor SNMP-capable devices in a network and, among other things, issues warning notifications about critical device states, which have been received via SNMP trap.

Network / Communication / Safety

  • Two network interfaces
  • Link aggregation increases reliability of network ports
  • Configuration over web interface
  • Monitoring and reporting of operating status over web interface
  • Report and request of system status via SNMP trap and agent
  • Logbook: electronic notes about the device; can be exported as .csv file
  • Ident-LED facilitate locating of devices in complex installations
  • Redundant power supply


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


  • Latency free (zero delay) transmission, no frame drops, no tearing with a perfect hand eye coordination
  • Uncompressed, lossless transmission in 1:1-Performance
  • Supports DisplayPort™ 1.2a resolutions
  • Supports 4K and UltraHD resolutions at 60Hz
  • Supports 8K resolutions at 30Hz using two video channels
  • Supports 8K resolutions at 60Hz using four video channels (in preparation)
  • Resolution per channel up to 4096x2160/60Hz (4K@60Hz), 3840x2160/60Hz (Ultra-HD/60Hz)
  • Further standardized resolutions possible as part of the maximum pixelrate
  • Pixelrate up to 600 MPixel/s
  • The MC2 variant enables the transmission of 7680x4320/30Hz (8K)
  • The MC channels of the DP1.2-VisionXG are working source synchronously. Therefore 4K content, for example, can be splitted in 2 x 2K or 8K content in 4 x 2K.
  • Visually lossless image data compression can be activated for emergency operation (for example, if single transmission lines fail, the bandwidth may be reduced in a way that uncompressed transmission can no longer be ensured)
  • Single- and Multi-Channel variants
  • 24 bit colour mode
  • Supports nVidia 3D-Vision 120Hz: 1680x1050/120Hz
  • Pixel encoding fro, RGB 4:4:4 with 24bpp / 8bpc
  • Supports E-EDID for each video channel
  • Generic implementation of DDC/CI information possible


  • Console with all video channels at both modules


  • PS/2- and USB keyboard/mouse support
  • Bidirectional transmission of audio and RS232 as default
  • Embedded Audio in DisplayPort

  • 10,000 m over two pairs of fibers (9/125 µm, 2,000 MHz*km, OS1)
  • 400 m over two pairs of multimode fibers (50/125 µm, 4.700 MHz*km, OM4)
  • 300 m over two pairs of multimode fibers (50/125 µm, 2,000 MHz*km, OM3)

The installation

The computer is linked to the back of the DP1.2-VisionXG transmitter. Distinctive cables connect the computer's keyboard, video, mouse, audio, and USB interfaces to the DP1.2-VisionXG computer module.

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

Use the existing cabling structure to link transmitter and receiver (multimode or singlemode optical fibres).
