German KVM manufacturer Guntermann & Drunck’s new VisionXS is a high-end multi-purpose extender for keyboard, video and mouse connections that promises to be smaller and more powerful.

It was designed to fit a wide range of functions into the smallest possible housing, offering high-performance KVM extenders with a bandwidth of 10G and video transmission for resolutions up to 4K.

Previous devices from the manufacturer supported a data transfer rate of 1Gbps per line, which was enough for full 4K video thanks to G&D’s own compression method. However, with a bandwidth of 10Gbps, VisionXS opens up new possibilities, claims the company. Initially, G&D will provide extender modules for KVM-over-IP, followed by versions for classic KVM systems for direct transmission.

VisionXS has the ability to combine the extenders with G&D’s matrix systems, so the units can either be operated in pairs as an extender line or via a matrix. They are also fully compatible with existing models.

Initially, there is a high-end system for DisplayPort UHR with 10G bandwidth, with devices for HDMI and DVI-I next. In addition, dual head modules allow the transmission of two video signals via one transmission cable.

The VisionXS-IP-DP-UHR system is compatible with the central ControlCenter-IP appliance. Combined, they form a matrix for KVM-over-IP, so each connected workstation can be granted access to any computer connected to the KVM system.
