The purpose of technology is to enable productivity in people. Unfortunately many designs don’t follow these basic rules. Designers resell their old tricks, use outdated technology or are simply unaware of the possibilities. One of the areas of specific importance is to minimize downtime and help to reduce the time for error recovery. Traditionally, this meant that if an error is reported with specific technology in a room a support engineer had to take a look and in case of a connectivity issue had to trace back the cable or even worse try to locate the AutoCad files -hope they have been kept up to date- and then try to decipher. At IDM solutions we believe that it can be better and we can show you how the full wire map from device to patch, between patches and from patch to switch runs. What the numbering is, etc. All this information is available online, work orders and change orders can be printed and changed upon execution. For further information, live demonstrations and strategic consulting please contact us. We will save you from your tedious AutoCad files…
In a world where security becomes more important by the minute it is crucial to have the right security architecture. It’s not just about the virus scanners and firewalls; at the levels where this is known it is quite common to work with multiple different IP networks -all with their own security classifications-.
At IDM Solutions we can help you to design such networks with the support of one of the world’s leading security manufacturers “Freeport Technologies” & “SecureSwitch”.
The solutions include Room Control Isolators, Multi-Domain Video Network Switching, Secure Optical Switching and more. For additional information please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Multi-Domain Video Network Switch (MDVNS)
Freeport’s Multi-Domain Video Network Switch permits a single video CODEC to be utilized on up to nine IP networks of varying security classifications
The MDVNS meets current DISA requirements and future requests as detailed in the STIG dated January 2015. The MDVNS is the only secure VTC switching solution that has been approved by the Defense Intelligence Agency for use on the JWICS Top Secret network. It has also been approved for operation by DISA for NIPR and SIPR, NRO, NGA, Coalition Forces, and many other classified networks.
The MDVNS design approach ensures electrical and data isolation between all networks. Data isolation is achieved through the use of multiple processor and memory units, where each unit is dedicated to a particular network. Data from a particular network is never stored in more than one place and data from different networks is never intermingled into one processor and memory unit.
The periods processing procedures that conform to the current DISA STIG, combined with the Freeport MDVNS hardware, ensure that security requirements are met during the switching and operational processes. The Freeport approach satisfies IA requirements.
Eliminates residual settings or data from being transferred from one network to another
Provides true red/black air gap separation and isolated grounds between networks and all system components
Stand-Alone or 3rd Party Control
Front panel operation or API integration with new and existing systems using AMX and Crestron AV room controllers
Relay closures provide control of third party ISDN Secure/Non-secure switching systems
In a world that is more and more connected traditional AV designs are rapidly becoming too limited in capabilities. Every traditional AV technology is now moving towards an IP enabled architecture and at IDM Solutions we are at the forefront advising both customers as well as manufacturers. We have explored many vendors and once in a while we find the real gems which we would like to highlight. This time we want to bring Vuwall with their Vuscape series of video wall controllers to the spotlight:
VuScape is a video wall controller for small to large scale video walls and single or multi-display projections. Natively integrated with the Matrox IP product portfolio it can very affordably connect physical inputs, network signals or standard Windows applications simultaneously on a video wall. VuScape can be used in Meeting Rooms, Control Rooms or can be used for presentations, operators, etc. Highly scalable it can grow up to 64 input and outputs all at resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160.
In addition -as pure display processing power is no longer sufficient by itself- it has a sophisticated way to control content between operators, desktops and video wall segments.
If you want to learn how you could use these type of technologies in your environment and find out how it can help you to increase your productivity, whilst reducing your overall AV costs then please reach out to us at: email@example.com.
