Black Box will feature demo areas dedicated to Emerald KVM solutions that address the need for real-time access to multiple computers from multiple locations — whether across rooms, floors, buildings, sites or cities.
Black Box offers consultation and design services along with every solution delivered, and the company’s representatives at the 2019 NAB Show will highlight IP-based and 4K AV visualization and distribution solutions tailored to the requirements of modern control rooms, post and media productions and broadcast playout environments.
Black Box will feature the Emerald 4K and Emerald SE transmitter-receiver pairs for connecting users at their workstations with remote computers and servers across distances up to 6.2 miles over single-mode fiber. The reach is even farther over IP.
Emerald 4K delivers pixel-perfect HD or 4K video over an IP network with support for mixed resolutions. It allows extension and switching of video (DisplayPort or DVI), transparent USB 2.0 and bidirectional analog audio and serial signals across any combination and number of physical and virtual servers.
Emerald SE units give users an economical point of entry into KVM-over-IP and support a migration to enterprise KVM matrix switching through a simple software license upgrade. In addition, as operations expand, Emerald allows users to scale up by adding endpoints.
To be demonstrated is Boxilla, an enterprise-level KVM manager that is changing the way businesses deploy, configure, monitor and manage equipment on their networks. It provides an interface for monitoring system performance, configuring proactive security alerts, checking on real-time device status and identifying active devices, connections and users, as well as their current bandwidth usage.
Control Bridge is a complete multisystem and room control system for control rooms and building automation. Using a single touch panel to control KVM, AV and other in-room devices, users can program room temperature, control video wall solutions, turn lights on and off remotely or launch a preset room configuration with the touch of a button to prepare a room for a presentation.―The Broadcast Bridge
