LAS VEGAS — April 26, 2023 — Black Box announced today that its Emerald® DESKVUE is a winner in the 2023 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards, Hardware Infrastructure category. This official awards program recognizes some of the most significant and promising new products and technologies showcased by exhibitors at NAB Show.
Offering a completely new concept in KVM-over-IP, the Black Box Emerald DESKVUE eliminates the traditional one-to-one relationship with a transmitter or virtual system and allows users to create a personalized workspace where they can simultaneously view and interact with up to 16 different systems. Users can now tailor their workspace as best suits their needs by connecting a single keyboard, mouse, USB 3/2 devices, audio, and up to four 4K monitors (one of which can be a 5K monitor).
Emerald DESKVUE connects to physical systems via Emerald transmitters; VMs using RDP, PCoIP, PCoIP ultra, and H.264/265 sources; and Virtual Network Computing (VNC). All systems can be positioned across the screens as freely movable windows. Interacting with each system is as simple as moving the mouse onto the window. This model enables the user to maintain complete situational awareness and full control within easy reach.
NAB Show Product of the Year Award Winners were selected by a panel of industry experts in 15 categories and announced in a live awards ceremony at NAB Show on April 18. To be eligible for an award, nominated products had to come from companies exhibiting at the 2023 NAB Show and be delivered within the 2023 calendar year.
"We're thrilled to be the recipient of a NAB Show Product of the Year Award and for the recognition it offers for Emerald DESKVUE. The 2023 NAB Show debut of Emerald DESKVUE allowed us to demonstrate how it truly does enable a new level of customization, responsiveness, and efficiency in working with numerous systems," said John Hickey, senior director of R&D and KVM Systems at Black Box.
"During our centennial year, NAB continues to recognize the products that are transforming how content is being created, connected and capitalized throughout the broadcast, media and entertainment industry," said Eric Trabb, senior vice president and chief customer success officer at NAB. "Congratulations to Black Box for winning the 2023 NAB Show Product of the Year Award in recognition of Emerald DESKVUE®, a product that has demonstrated its ability to help storytellers face the challenges of the present and future by revolutionizing a critical stage of the content lifecycle."
