Black Box at World ATM Congress 2020

At World ATM Congress 2020, Black Box will showcase technology solutions for airport traffic management (ATM) and air traffic control (ATC) that streamline the way air traffic controllers and airport staff work. The company will demonstrate how its KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) extension and data visualization solutions free up control room space, enable smoother and more ergonomic workflows, and reduce operators’ response times during mission-critical events.

Black Box experts will be available on Booth 428 to discuss KVM and digital signage solutions for ATC monitoring and flight data processing, airport digital signage and passenger information displays, and baggage handling.

Black Box Products at World ATM Congress 2020

Black Box Emerald® Unified KVM Platform

KVM technology allows any air traffic controller to access multiple computers through one single set of keyboard/video/mouse, committing to a safer environment with increased operational efficiency and enhanced situational awareness. At World ATM Congress 2020, Black Box will highlight its Emerald® Unified KVM platform, which provides the exceptional flexibility and network security essential to state-of-the-art KVM extension and switching. The low-latency, high-performance Emerald 4K and Emerald SE transmitter-receiver pairs connect workstations with remote computers and servers at distances of up to 10 kilometres over single-mode fibre, or even farther over IP, while the Emerald Remote App facilitates convenient anywhere, anytime access without the need for additional hardware receivers. With uniquely robust capabilities for reliable extension and switching of video, audio, USB and serial signals across any number of physical and virtual servers, Emerald lowers users’ cost of ownership and helps them preserve existing IT investments.
