k/v/m switching and extension allow hot, noisy and unsightly computer equipment to be removed from the human work environment and placed in remote equipment rooms where they can be kept cool, secure and easily maintained. Conceptual Technologies specializes in these advanced projects. Recent projects include:
Interactive Computer Training Room
for an international insurance company.
Conceptual Technologies designed and installed a computer extension/switching system that allows the instructors to view any of the student workstations secretly, or send their images to the overhead projector for all to see.
The instructors can also work privately with their own workstations, or send their workstation images to the projector.
The instructors can actually take over command or share use of any of the student workstations during a training session.
The switching/extension system may operate as two discrete systems working simultaneously, or as one system with one instructor when the moveable wall is opened for large classes.
In this mode the instructor has access to all student workstations and operates the projectors on each side of the room.
The monitors, keyboards and mice can be removed quickly to transform the room from an interactive computer-training center to a general-purpose conference room.
Multi-studio Radio Program Control System
for a national radio broadcasting company. The company consolidated several radio stations in a single location and needed to put all the program control workstations in the equipment room for security and maintenance purposes. The on-air talent can access the program control workstations directly from the studio or can share access with a remote administator if problems are encountered. If on-air talent is unavailable, then broadcasting can continue uninterrupted through over-IP control of the workstation.
Network Monitoring Center
for a national managed services provider. Each operator must monitor four workstations. The k/vm signals from each workstation are transmitted from the equipment room into the monitoring center where the video signals go directly to an array of flat panel monitors. The keyboard and mouse signals are split off to a switch at the operators fingertips that allows them to operate any of the four work stations monitored with a single keyboard and mouse.
