Black Box at IBC2022:
Industry-Leading KVM-Over-IP Solutions for Broadcast, Gaming, and Entertainment

IBC2022 Preview
Sept. 9-12, 2022
RAI Amsterdam
Hall 8 Stand F42 (8F42)

Black Box®'s high-performance KVM-over-IP solutions address the requirements of modern broadcast, gaming, and esports environments. In addition to offering proven reliability, low-bandwidth requirements, and exceptional user experiences with any time, anywhere access, these solutions lower users' cost of ownership, enable greater workflow optimization, and contribute to more agile IP-based operations. They put the focus on content without compromise.

On Stand F42 in Hall 8 at IBC2022, Black Box will debut for the European market two new additions to the company's award-winning Emerald® KVM-over-IP platform offering exceptional user experience with anywhere anytime, remote access:

IBC DEBUT: Black Box Emerald® GE PCoIP® Ultra Gateway
The recently announced Black Box Emerald® GE leverages cutting-edge 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 extremely low bandwidth requirements, the system supports remote access through 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, highly responsive computing experience. Unlocking collaboration across physical machines and VMs, Emerald GE empowers broadcasters to work together more efficiently in remote production scenarios.

Black Box Emerald® GE is the first PCoIP® Ultra gateway to enable simultaneous sharing of virtual machines and physical machines.

IBC DEBUT: Black Box Emerald® VUE 4K Multiviewer
The Emerald® VUE 4K multiviewer unites KVM switching with quad multi-viewing to simultaneously monitor four DisplayPort video sources across two screens at exceptional 4K60 image quality. The system is ideal for production environments where space is limited, as it allows users to arrange windows freely on the screen or in preconfigured screen layouts such as full-screen, quad-view, or picture-in-picture (PiP). In addition, real-time switching between sources via keyboard, API, or GPIO — or with the Black Box Glide & Switch capability — gives producers, engineers, and editors convenient control over the production process.

The Black Box Emerald® VUE enables easy processing, responsive switching, and simultaneous monitoring of 4K video.

Black Box Emerald® KVM-Over-IP Platform
The Black Box Emerald® KVM-over-IP platform serves as an infinitely scalable universal access system, allowing users to connect to both physical and virtual machines from any location at any time, allowing for optimized studio infrastructure and workflows. Advanced security and market-leading low bandwidth consumption allow maximum expandability, incorporating remote users, remote productions, and distributed control rooms. In addition, 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. At the same time, Emerald preserves the existing IT equipment.

Black Box Emerald® KVM-over-IP platform provides exceptional flexibility and the low bandwidth usage essential to state-of-the-art signal routing and centralized management.

Black Box Boxilla® KVM Manager
The Black Box Boxilla® enterprise-level KVM manager makes it easy for users to control and monitor an unlimited number of Emerald® devices and software solutions. With its intuitive and visually appealing dashboard, Boxilla offers a simple, complete solution for monitoring system performance, configuring proactive security alerts, checking on real-time device status, and identifying active devices, connections, and users, as well as their current bandwidth usage. In addition, to offer a detailed view of network bandwidth, Boxilla also provides at-a-glance access to dropped frames, round-trip time, and other critical system and device data. With these capabilities and the system's ease of use, administrators can proactively identify and resolve issues before compromising performance and the user experience.

Black Box Boxilla offers comprehensive management of the Emerald® KVM platform with easy-to-read dashboards and rich API integration.

Black Box Video Wall Processing
Black Box video wall processing solutions enable the display of high-quality content from any source across multiscreen display walls with the utmost flexibility. Users can add, move, resize, and change the content in any creative configuration imaginable with limitless resolution. In addition, they can extend zero-latency video and audio to an unlimited number of displays and easily switch between sources with no skew (delay). Like many Black Box products, these robust AV solutions significantly reduce network management time and costs.
