We operate one of the largest grading and mixing stages in Europe. The Draco Tera switch forms part of the infrastructure, providing an invaluable, instantaneous and highly flexible switching capability within the studios
The Draco Tera Compact by IHSE has been specifically designed for small to mid-sized KVM requirements but uses the same technology found in their enterprise-level matrix systems.
It enables switching between computers and remote consoles – keyboard, mouse, monitor and other peripherals – and is available with both CATx or Fibre ports in 8, 16, 32, 48, 64 or 80-port switch sizes.
Both the 64 and 80-port chassis switches are available as hybrid versions, for example 48 CATx ports and 16/32 fibre ports and Draco’s unique Flex-Port technology offers huge time-saving benefits for system installers by negating the need to pre-configure input and output ports to specific I/O requirements.
Fibre-optic ports allows data transfer up to 10km either side of the matrix, perfect for inter-building connections and each computer can be quickly assessed from any position, via keyboard, on-screen display (OSD), the Draco Tera Tool or an ethernet or serial interface.
Each port on the Draco Tera Compact must be connected to an IHSE digital KVM extender module. Extenders are available to suit nearly all combinations of common video and data interfaces.
