IHSE USA adds 8 port switch to the Draco tera compact line of HD-KVM switching solutions

NAB 2013, Las Vegas, NV – April 8, 2013: IHSE USA, LLC, a leading supplier of advanced high definition KVM solutions for video and data connectivity is now taking orders for their new 8 port Draco KVM switch. With the new K480-8C, control multiple computers from your workstation and/or allow multiple users access to the same computer with the amazing new small footprint Draco tera compact 8. Feel at ease that you will get excellent quality signal resolutions up to 2048x1152@60Hz and can extend practically any USB, audio or serial device up to 280 meters over CAT-X cabling.

With the same control and software features found in the Enterprise version of IHSE USA’s draco tera compact line of HD-KVM switchers, the new Draco tera compact 8 provides exactly the same easy setup. IHSE USA’s flex-port technology allows each port to auto-configure itself as a source or destination. Just plug in a CPU extender or Console extender and the switch will automatically configure the port to the connected device. KVM configurations can range from a single computer to seven consoles or one user to seven CPU devices or any combination in between.

Need to go that extra distance? Not a problem with our extended reach CATx modules. Devices can be connected up to 140m away from the switch giving you a maximum of 280m between computers and workstations.

When it comes to control, the draco tera compact 8 has you covered in a variety of control options. Users can easily setup parameters and user configurations from a basic On Screen Display (OSD), Add more flexibility with our optional Java-based control software or customize the system using third party controllers with the expanded API command protocol.

The draco tera Compact 8 supports Smart Tie-Line technology so that it can be integrated with larger KVM networks as your KVM requirements expand.

The Draco tera compact is compatible with all the IHSE Vario and IHSE compact series of extenders offering single, dual, and quad display options, USB HID, USB 2.0, RS-232, RS-422 and Analog or Digital Audio signals over CATx cabling. With the internal power supply, workspace clutter is a thing of the past.

The Draco tera compact 8 can be used as a standalone unit, rack mounted, or can be installed with IHSE’s modular extenders in IHSE’s 21-Bay Vario Chassis, giving you a complete KVM system in four rack units. This configuration is ideal for mobile NLE systems or small trucks.
