Black Box Products at World ATM Congress 2021

Black Box Emerald® Unified KVM Platform

KVM technology allows any air traffic controller to access multiple computers through one single set of keyboard/video/mouse, committing to a safer environment with increased operational efficiency and enhanced situational awareness. At World ATM Congress 2021, Black Box will highlight its Emerald® Unified KVM platform, which provides the exceptional flexibility and network security essential to state-of-the-art KVM extension and switching. The low-latency, high-performance Emerald 4K and Emerald SE transmitter-receiver pairs connect workstations with remote computers and servers at distances of up to 10 kilometres over single-mode fibre, or even farther 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 and helps them preserve existing IT investments.

Black Box Control Bridge® Multisystem and Room Control

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 pre-set room configuration with the touch of a button to prepare a room for a presentation.

Control Bridge® from Black Box delivers convenient touch-screen control over KVM, AV and other in-room systems.

Black Box Secure KVM Switches

Unlike traditional non-secure KVM switches that centralize control of multiple computers with no absolute isolation between them, Black Box Secure KVM Switches are designed for use in applications where sensitive data must be protected. The Secure KVM Switches comply with NIAP V4.0, V3.0, or TEMPEST protection profiles and the highest security features that meet today's Information Assurance safe control standards. The switch prevents data leakage between on- and offshore systems that can run at different security levels, and eliminates any potential cyber threat.

Guard your sensitive data with our Secure KVM Switches.


Black Box Freedom™ II 4-Port and 8-Port KM (keyboard and mouse) Switches

With the Black Box Freedom™ II 4-Port and 8-Port KM (keyboard and mouse) Switches, Glide and Switch Computer Control allows you to control up to four (or up to eight) different computers and their directly attached screens from one keyboard and mouse. To switch between computers, you simply move the mouse cursor from monitor to monitor. This saves desktop space and improves operator response time. Use Freedom as a stand-alone KM switch or add it to your KVM matrix switching system to optimize situational awareness in control rooms, command centers, or 911/112 call centers.

The Freedom switch allows the user to move the cursor from monitor to monitor to seamlessly switch between computers.
