Black Box to Exhibit High-Performance OCC Solutions at Smart Railway Transit Forum in Suzhou, China

PITTSBURGH May 6, 2021 — Black Box, an industry-leading provider of IT connectivity solutions, today announced that the company will exhibit operation control centre (OCC) solutions at the Smart Railway Transit Forum, Booth A32, along with its partner in China, Longjoin. During the event, which runs May 19-21 in Suzhou, China, Black Box will showcase the company’s digital KVM matrix switching (DKM) and MCX AV-over-IP product families and other solutions that support flexible, high-performance delivery of video and other signals throughout transit facilities.

DKM for Flexible KVM Matrix Switching

The Black Box DKM family of modular KVM matrix switching and extension systems facilitates flexible, instantaneous crosspoint switching and peripheral extension of full HD video. The DKM FX platform replaces multiple devices with one hybrid solution that supports routing, switching and multipoint distribution of SDI, 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, HDMI and DVI video standards as well as dual-link extension. Replacing up to four single-purpose devices with one robust solution boasting state-of-the-art KVM functionality, DKM switching and extension solutions save users time and money while reducing the complexity of integration.

supporting a wide range of signal formats and ultra-high resolutions.

MCX for Next-Generation AV-Over-IP Distribution and Management

A Software-Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE)-enabled solution, MCX uses modern network infrastructure to deliver up to 4K 60 Hz video and audio over IP without latency or compression. MCX harnesses the power of Ethernet to deliver the performance of a matrix switch without the limitations. Ensuring transmission of pristine uncompressed video with exceptional colour accuracy and zero latency, the solution supports video wall solutions in mission-critical OCC environments as well as distribution of other AV signals including DisplayPort, USB and Dante. Delivering video signals pixel by pixel and preserving all colour information, MCS maintains the visual fidelity of railway connection diagrams and other key images essential to monitoring and decision-making.
