The Draco™ major Switch sets a milestone in the world of Matrix- Switches.

For the first time, the quality of DVI sources can be switched through a Matrix switch. Highest resolutions of up to 1920x1200 (Duallink up to 2560x2048 projected) in combination with long distances open up the multifaceted possibilities.

The device can be easily set to the various modes of operation:

  • Crosspoint-Switch – 32 Inputs to up to 16 Outputs
  • 32:16 Single-Head KVM Switch
  • 16:8 Dual-Head KVM Switch
  • 8:4 Quad-Head KVM Switch


Besides of the most popular operation mode KVM- Switch, the device can also handle Dual-Head or Quadhead applications.

In the operation mode ‚KVM- Switch’, the special feature ‚Partner Viewing’, allows, to double the own screen content to one or more additional screens. Perfect, if you want to show your content additionally on a video-projector or if you want to make your screen available for your administrator. The feature ‚Follow- Me’- allows, that even when you switch to another CPU, the connected screens will follow.

One operation mode reproduces an often required function in Control Rooms: Several monitors can be assigned to a workplace. The CPUs displayed on these monitors can be easily selected from the list of available CPUs. With a short key you can switch fast and easily the keyboard/mouse to each monitor and control the attached CPU.

In the operation mode Crosspoint Switch, the Draco™ major allows applications in conference rooms or in Digital Signage Applications.

In Educational Environments, an additional operation mode sets the system to a student/teacher configuration. The teacher can always switch to the monitor of each student for observation. In the configuration for up to 15 students, the teacher can additionally switch his screen content or this of any student to the other students. In the configuration for up to 31 students, he can switch his or the screen content of any student to a common screen (e.g. video projector).

In KVM- Switch Mode the access is always done via the connected keyboard with a comfortable OnScreen Menu (OSD). Additionally it’s possible to make the control access via serial interface or with network access. This allows, using this device as a matrix switch in combination with commercially available media control devices.

A User Management in up to 1000 levels allows a detailed right level for each console place, for each CPU and/or for each switch.

The OSD or Web- Interface allows displaying the actual port connectivity, user connectivity ... at any time.

The Administration of the System is regularly done through a console and a user with administrator- rights or comfortable through the built-in Web-Interface. Additionally the administration can be done via the equipped IR-remote control

The complete system, with all built-in boards and components can easily be upgraded with the most recent firmware version. To do this, you only have to upload via FTP the necessary Upgrade files into the device.

A Draco™ major Switch System is always configured like described below:

  • At each signal source (CPU) a Local Unit is installed.
  • Using CATx- or fibre cables (depending on device type) the connection to the Draco™ major unit is made.
  • Optional, using CATx- or fibre cables (depending on device type) you can make the connection to a Master- Draco™ major.
  • At each console (Monitor) a Remote Unit is installed.
  • Using CATx- or fibre cables (depending on device type) you can make the connection to the Draco™ major.
The Draco™ major Switch uses identical boards for In- and Output. Because of this you get money savings in inventory costs and a higher availability.
