4. Keyboard Video Mouse over IP
KVM-over-IP technology extends keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) signals from any computer or server over an IP connection, enabling an effective way to remotely manage servers regardless of their physical location. Integrated with BIOS-level access, system
administrators can monitor and respond to server issues from virtually anywhere over an internet connection. For this reason, server management with remote KVM switches has become a critical component in most data centers today.
5. Video-over-IP Server
Network video servers, also known as IP video servers, enable the transfer of video feeds into other video servers/PCs or deliver streams for direct playout (via IP interface or SDI). For example, in surveillance, an IP video server can be used to turn
any CCTV camera into a network security camera with an IP-based video stream capable of being broadcast over an IP network.
6. IP Video Matrix System
A video matrix switch, also called a cross-point switch, is a type of switch that connects multiple inputs to multiple outputs to form a multipoint matrix. Video matrix switches can be configured to switch any supported number and type of inputs and outputs.
Each input on the switch can be routed to any output source or receiver, or the same input can be routed to all outputs or any combination in between. For example, an 8 x 8 matrix switch can route eight inputs to eight outputs, one input to eight
outputs or any combination up to eight. This eliminates the need to manually move cables to display video from different sources on different screens. It is most commonly used now with HDMI video.
An IP video matrix system allows video to be distributed, extended and formatted over an IP network, unicasting or multicasting individual video signals to a matrix of screens and displaying video content on multiple video screens. This gives users an
infinite number of individual video distribution configurations. It’s commonly used in applications such as broadcast, control rooms, conference rooms, healthcare, industrial manufacturing, education and more.
