Thinklogical Develops Easy-to-Integrate Fiber-Optic Extension Solution for Christie Entero HB Video Wall Display Cubes
By Deepika Mala
Thinklogical LLC and Christie have recently collaborated to develop a highly secure and easy-to-integrate fiber-optic extension solution for Christie Entero HB video wall display cubes.
Officials said that this announcement was made at the AFCEA TechNet Asia-Pacific Conference and Expo in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Thinklogical LLC is a premier provider of high performance KVM signal extension and switching systems. Its VelocityDVI 3 Direct Fiber-Optic Input Card will install directly into the Christie Entero HB cube.
This will further help in offering fiber-optic video signal extension capability at 6.25 Gbps bandwidth without the use of external receivers, power supplies and copper cabling.
Since the solution is a fiber-optic-based system, users will be able to take advantage of the increased security of their data, possible with the elimination of electromagnetic emanations generated caused by copper cabling.
Using Thinklogical's patented Multi-Rate Transmission System technology, the new direct fiber input card will enable multiple data streams of uncompressed video, audio and peripheral signals to be multiplexed and transmitted over a single fiber optic cable to receivers.
In a press statement, Larry Wachter, Vice President of Engineering and Manufacturing at Thinklogical, said: "This joint development with Christie enhances our ability to address customer requirements for high-performance visual computing solutions for command and control environments in multiple industries worldwide. We look forward to creating additional integrated fiber-optic solutions for other Christie display products."
Company officials confirmed that the new card is compatible with all Thinklogical MX and VX matrix switches.
Earlier in July, TMCnet reported that Thinklogical has announced the availability of a white paper for government and business organizations that outlines best practices to reduce the threat of a breach of confidential data in visual computing and data analysis environments.
