Draco Tera EnterpriseModular KVM matrix switch with 48 - 576 ports

Draco Tera Enterprise
  • Modular non-blocking architecture
  • Delay-free HD & 4K UHD switching
  • For mission-critical environments
  • Hot-plug cards and redundant PSUs
  • 48, 80, 160, 288 or 576 ports
  • Link multiple chassis in a Matrix Grid
  • Integrated management system
  • Supports KVM, USB, SDI, Audio

Go beyond KVM with the IHSE Draco Tera Enterprise. This is the perfect high-performance modular routing system for complete in-band signal distribution of HD/UHD video, audio and data.

The Draco Tera Enterprise has been designed specifically for secure mission-critical environments with performance, flexibility and scalability as standard. It is available with CATx or Fibre interfaces supporting up to 576 non-blocking ports and the switches have a universal I/O option enabling 3G-SDI, USB 3.0 and other multi-Gb signals to be transparently routed by the Tera system in conjunction with KVM.

The system enables you to switch SDI amongst playout monitors in edit suites as well as accessing multiple high-speed USB 3.0 measurement interfaces in the lab. Universal I/O normally utilises 3 Gb fibre SFP modules, with coax options also available for SDI.


For all mission-critical installations, Draco Tera switches work perfectly. The multi-level redundancy concept offers the highest level of reliability for round-the-clock operations and in addition, each chassis supports fully redundant power and hot-swappable modules for full service and field upgrades with no interruption to the signal flow.

Each port on the Draco Tera Enterprise must be connected to an IHSE digital KVM extender module. Extenders are available to suit nearly all combinations of common video and data interfaces.
