What Black Box is Showcasing at NAB 2022
Black Box is set to exhibit at the 2022 NAB Show, the marketplace for those seeking to create superior audio and video experiences, in Booth W4117.
“With more than 40 years in the business, robust R&D operations, and an extensive portfolio of interoperable, state-of-the-art KVM systems, Black Box has a solution for any challenge,” said John Hickey, senior director of R&D and KVM Systems at Black Box. “The industry’s migration to IP workflows, virtualization, and remote work continues, and the 2022 NAB Show offers a great opportunity for us to showcase our latest additions to the Emerald KVM line and to demonstrate how the entire product family can help media organizations realize greater flexibility, efficiency, and reliability in mission-critical workflows.”
Black Box’s Emerald KVM-Over-IP Platform will be front and center in the company’s NAB 2022 booth; it serves as an infinitely scalable universal access system, giving users the flexibility to connect to both physical and virtual machines from any location at any time, which allows for optimized studio infrastructure and workflows. Advanced security and low bandwidth consumption allow maximum expandability, incorporating remote users, remote productions, and distributed control rooms. Interoperability between 4K and HD video and one-touch setups of control rooms, combined with a high degree of automation through Emerald’s APIs, give users valuable flexibility and ease of use in managing signals and format types to deliver content with an innovative look and feel, while Emerald preserves the existing IT equipment.
New this year, is Black Box’s Emerald GE—what the company claims is the industry’s “first and only” solution to leverage PC-over-IP (PCoIP) Ultra technology to enable multiple users to connect simultaneously and control a virtual machine (VM) just as they would a physical system. With low bandwidth requirements, the system supports remote access through both local and wide area networks (LANs and WANs). Pairing seamlessly with the Emerald KVM-over-IP platform, Emerald GE supports VM sharing while ensuring a secure, high-definition, and highly responsive computing experience. Unlocking collaboration across physical machines and VMs, Emerald GE empowers broadcasters to work together more efficiently in remote production scenarios.
