Broadcast & Media companies are evolving and making a rapid transition to cloud-based workflows and automating broadcast operations for program transmission, master control, news production, and live production. Today’s KVM technologies play a pivotal role in this transition allowing managers, editors, operators, and engineers to manage and rapidly reconfigure infrastructure, allowing ease of setup and configuration when time costs money. Black Box has extensive experience in developing KVM solutions for the Broadcast & Media Industry by working with clients to develop innovative KVM solutions.
KVM systems have long been one of the hidden foundations of a broadcast facility. They have evolved from being an occasional use tool for setup and troubleshooting into one of those infrastructure items that are used every moment of the day. Black Box KVM solutions deliver:
- Improved operational workflow
- Real-time access to any server from any user station
Post-production environments must be comfortable and quiet so talent, artists, and editors are able to access the variety of hardware and software required from a single or multiple workstations. Today’s High-Performance Fiber KVM solutions allow users to have access to 4K resolution, 10-Bit Color Depth, and a variety of peripheral equipment. Black Box KVM solutions deliver:

Stadiums & Arenas
The demand for dramatic camera angles, slow motion replays, and dynamic graphic and stats are at an all-time high because fans want the same experience at the venue as they have on their couch. KVM solutions allow operators to move their computers to another location while still using the same machine via keyboard, monitor, and mouse. Fast-paced cuts, replays with zoom-in/zoom-out capabilities, and graphics need to be seamlessly integrated for a smooth yet fast-paced experience. Black Box KVM solutions deliver:
- Instantaneous switching between systems for real-time workflow
- Content sharing and workflow collaboration throughout the venue
