Black Box Earns Top 2019 NAB Show Honors for Its Emerald Unified KVM Platform
The Emerald Unified KVM platform is a state-of-the-art and future-proof KVM extension and switching solution that provides exceptional flexibility and network security for mission-critical, 24/7 control rooms and media production environments. Serving as a point-to-point extension or a KVM switching system — with support for IP-based 4K video, USB and audio distribution, plus access via remote app — the Emerald platform ensures convenient high-speed access to all types of servers, whether physical or virtual, on premises, or in the cloud.
