News Image
At ISE 2024 on Booth 5E330, Black Box® will feature IP-based KVM and video wall solutions that enhance control room workflows and empower operators by enabling incomparable system connectivity, exceptionally intuitive user experiences and fluid team collaboration.

Black Box will demonstrate how the company's award-winning Emerald® KVM-over-IP solutions ensure flexible, scalable and secure workflows with industry-leading low-IP-bandwidth usage.

The Black Box booth at ISE 2024 will showcase the KVM-over-IP-based Emerald® Ecosystem, which provides infinitely scalable universal access to physical computers, cloud appliances, virtual machines, and H.264/265 video streams. The company will unveil Emerald®AV WALL, a new addition to the Emerald Ecosystem that unites KVM and AV video wall processing under a single management system, along with Emerald® DESKVUE, an award-winning solution for creating individually tailored workspaces. The company will also feature its AlertWerks AW3000 wireless IoT Gateway integrated within the Emerald Ecosystem and demonstrate how it allows operators to link to physical sensors, configure virtual sensors, watch values on browser-based dashboards, set notifications and alarms and configure automatic actions.

Product managers and global solution experts will be available on the booth to answer questions about how these Black Box solutions address a wide variety of control room challenges.

Emerald® Ecosystem
The Black Box Emerald® Ecosystem stands for advanced security features, user comfort, and custom-designed redundancy to ensure resilient 24/7 operation. Its exceptionally low bandwidth usage makes it easy to incorporate remote and hybrid users and administrators working from any location, enabling them to access, monitor and control systems over a LAN, WAN, or the internet, including dark fiber connections.

The programmable ControlBridge® touch panel from Black Box allows even complex control room configurations to be executed instantly with a single touch.

The Emerald Ecosystem unifies KVM-over-IP with AV video wall processing and IoT predictive maintenance under a single management system, Boxilla® Manager, to reduce system complexity and total cost of ownership.

In the new Black Box Emerald®AV WALL, making its official debut at ISE 2024, KVM unites with AV. Designed to meet user requirements for more effective collaboration, this solution enables seamless interoperability with Emerald KVM-over-IP systems while also supporting non-KVM environments. EmeraldAV WALL complements Emerald® DESKVUE, making it easy to display a single source from an Emerald system on a video wall for viewing by a larger group. The solution directly supports a 2x2 video wall while allowing for the expansion in the number of supported monitors through additional units.

At ISE 2024, Black Box will demonstrate the award-winning Emerald® DESKVUE KVM-over-IP receiver, a small-form-factor device that offers a completely new concept in creating individually tailored workspaces. Emerald DESKVUE allows a user to access up to 16 selected sources simultaneously, replacing multiple receivers and thus reducing system complexity and costs. Operators can implement a setup with up to four 4K monitors, but the preferred option is a large ultra-wide curved 5K monitor in the center with two smaller 4K monitors to the right and the left. Adding Emerald®AV WALL licenses on the Emerald DESKVUE receiver expands the capabilities for visualization with a 2x2 video wall. Users can arrange windows on the displays in any size and arrangement. Switching between systems happens automatically in the background as users perform their tasks, removing any need for manual switching commands, or even awareness of system changes.

ControlBridge® Multisystem One Touch Control
Increase operator comfort and reduce human errors. The programmable ControlBridge® touch panel allows users to change workflows with complex setups with one click. It connects and combines AV-, KVM-, room automation-, external control- and IoT-systems into one easy-to-use control panel. Numerous scenarios like day or night shifts, crisis recovery plans, backup types, and many more can be preconfigured and indicated on the touch panel with clear names. Users can focus easier on their tasks and act faster and error-free thanks to tested presets.
