PITTSBURGH — May 27, 2021 — Black Box, an industry-leading provider of IT connectivity solutions, will showcase solutions for air traffic control (ATC) and airport command centres at the Civil Aviation Technology Equipment and Service Exhibition, booth B12-1, which runs June 1-3 at the China National Convention Center in Beijing. Exhibiting along with Longjoin, the company’s partner in China, Black Box will highlight products that aid in optimizing workflows and reducing operator response times. Black Box will feature its high-performance digital KVM matrix (DKM) switching systems, ControlBridge® room control system and Freedom II KVM switch with Glide-and-Switch functionality.
The Black Box DKM family of modular KVM matrix switching and extension systems facilitates flexible, instantaneous crosspoint switching and peripheral extension of HD and 4K video, audio and peripheral signals, giving users convenient access to one or multiple computers through a single keyboard, video and mouse set. These DKM systems allows users to establish reliable, 24/7 connectivity between user stations and remote PCs across an airport and to back-rack critical hardware in secure equipment rooms. With these capabilities, DKM systems support a safer environment with increased operational efficiency and enhanced situational awareness.
ControlBridge from Black Box 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 devices, users can switch between KVM sources, control room temperature, operate video wall controllers, turn lights on and off remotely or launch a preset room configuration with the touch of a button.
The Black Box Freedom II KVM switch with Glide-and-Switch enables air traffic controllers to seamlessly switch between multiple computers just by moving the mouse. In addition to creating a desktop experience extended across multiple PCs, the switch supports simultaneous access to a mix of USB peripherals, including high-speed USB 2.0 devices.
