Access IT from everywhere with our KVM matrix switches

With KVM matrix switches you can access multiple computers over multiple user consoles simultaneously. They consist of computer modules, central modules and user modules. G&D products allow a flexible operation of large, distributed IT installations even with multiple user consoles connected

Depending on the requirements, users can choose between compact and modular KVM matrix switches. Even large installations with several thousand computers and a great number of different consoles can be established. Computers are accessed over simultaneous local or remote consoles. The consoles are directly connected to the matrix switches or accessed over IP.

Our KVM matrix switches transmit the following signals

  • DVI single-link/DisplayPort/VGA
  • Keyboard/mouse PS/2 and USB
  • Audio
  • Transparent USB 2.0
  • Up to 10.000 m via fibre optics

Your advantages

  • Flexible control of large and distributed IT installations
  • Optimised processes and control rooms
  • Work desks without computers
  • Undisturbed environment thanks to low noise level
  • Easy maintenance for the IT administrator

The following variants of digital KVM matrix systems are available

Components for the digital KVM matrix systems

KVM matrix switches: Components

For connecting computers and consoles to the system, the digital matrix switches DVICenter and ControlCenter-Digital use the same peripherals. This ensures maximum compatibility.

The modules are available for different video standards / interfaces, multi-channel video, different transmission media as well as for connecting to 1 or 2 matrix switch cluster.

All modules are compatible with each other

Bridge function - Integrate existing analog systems into digital solutions

The Bridge function Integrates existing analog systems into digital solutions. Your advantage: Secure investments by future-proof expansion options.

Uniting the worlds of digital and analog KVM

To be able to continue using VGA-based KVM matrix systems and to integrate digital state-of-the-art solutions, G&D developed the Bridge function. With the function, users can integrate CATCenter NEO clusters into digital matrix switch systems (ControlCenter-Digital or DVICenter) and operate the entire system over one single user interface.

When connecting the systems, analog signals are converted into digital ones. For this, the UCON (of the CATCenter NEO’s user console) grabs the signals and uses a VGA-CPU to provide them to the digital matrix.
And as always, G&D put usability first. The logical connection between both systems saves users from clicking through various OSDs. Since both systems are communicating with each other, operation is carried out over one OSD only. Users of analog KVM matrix systems don’t realise any changes while operating their system. But thanks to the Bridge function, users of digital matrix systems are able to also access analog targets via OSD now.

The system manages any processes running in the background so that users are able to completely focus on their work instead of having to worry about infrastructural issues. Therefore, the way to the source becomes secondary. Of course, rights can still be managed as easily as before.
