For applications where signals require complex switching, G&D offers systems deploying their unique HDIP video compression technology. The DP-Vision1.2 KVM extender supports 4Kp60 video with audio and USB 2.0 up to 10km over single-mode fiber or up to 140m over CAT 5e/6/7 cable and can be used in combination with any of G&D’s matrix switching systems.

Both DisplayPort KVM extender systems incorporate Icron’s ExtremeUSB suite of features such as transparent USB extension, true plug and play (no software drivers required) and compatibility with all major operating systems: Windows®, macOS™ and Linux®.

“Pixel-perfect and latency-free is how we describe our DP1.2-Vision-XG and DP-Vision1.2 KVM extenders,” said Jochen Bauer, G&D’s Marketing Director. “Both models provide choice of transmitting over copper or fiber and include ExtremeUSB to support High Speed USB 2.0 peripheral extension.”
