Black Box Emerald® Unified KVM Platform
The Black Box Emerald® KVM-over-IP platform provides broadcasters and other media organizations with the exceptional flexibility and network security essential to state-of-the-art KVM extension and switching. The low-latency, high-performance Emerald 4K and HD units connect workstations with remote computers and servers over IP, while the Emerald Remote App facilitates convenient anywhere-anytime access without the need for additional hardware receivers.
With uniquely robust capabilities for reliable extension and switching of video, audio, USB, and serial signals across any number of physical and virtual servers, Emerald lowers users' cost of ownership, enables greater workflow optimization and helps preserve existing IT investments.
INTRODUCING Black Box Emerald® PCoIP Ultra Gateway
Black Box will soon launch the latest addition to its Emerald® KVM-over-IP KVM platform. Emerald GE is the first gateway to leverage PC-over-IP (PCoIP®) and PCoIP Ultra technology to support multiple users sharing the same virtual machine while ensuring a secure, high-definition and highly responsive computing experience. Black Box Emerald GE unlocks collaboration across physical and virtual machines — a feature that numerous broadcasters requested in order to improve collaborative work in remote production.
Boxilla® KVM Manager
Black Box will demonstrate how its Boxilla® enterprise-level KVM manager is changing the way businesses deploy, configure, monitor and manage equipment on their networks. Integrated with solutions such as the Black Box Emerald® KVM-over-IP or DKM Direct-Connect platform, Boxilla provides attractive, easy-to-understand dashboards 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. To offer a precise view of network bandwidth, Boxilla also provides at-a-glance access to dropped frames, round-trip time and other critical system and device data.
Black Box ControlBridge® Multisystem One-Touch Control
ControlBridge® is a complete multisystem control panel for control rooms and any user desk. A single touch panel enables control of KVM, AV and other devices, enabling convenient switching between sources, changes to video settings, access to video wall controllers and configuration of room conditions. Individual presets allow users to activate complex configurations with the touch of a button to prepare for a new production.
Black Box Freedom™ II KM Switches
The Black Box Freedom™ II is a keyboard and mouse switch that provides Glide-and-Switch computer control of up to four or eight different computers and their directly attached screens from one keyboard and mouse.
