Black Box Adds Expanded Broadcast Video Functionality to Its High-Performance Matrix Switch
Posted on Friday, April 4, 2014
PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, April 4, 2014 —Black Box Corporation (NASDAQ:BBOX), a leading technology solutions provider, announced today that it has expanded broadcast video functionality for its advanced digital KVM matrix solution (DKM). By using modular SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) technology from Embrionix, the DKM matrix switch can now be used with serial digital interface (SDI) technology, the leading standard in broadcast and media applications. The SFPs will also support and extend HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) video connections, as well as state-of-the-art KVM signals. Real-time signal conversion is also supported between SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and HDMI through these specialized SFP connections.

The DKM HD Video and Matrix Switch System is an innovative copper/fiber hybrid solution that provides KVM, video routing, and switching and signal conversion in a single, convergent platform. The DKM FX line features redundant power supplies, hot-swappable components, and a robust, modular architecture that scales simply and cost-effectively to meet the needs of broadcast and media professionals.
