G&D Turns On the Lights to New ControlCenter-Xperience in Germany
G&D opened their new KVM showroom, ControlCenter-Xperience (CCX) on October 1. To celebrate the occasion on site, G&D’s CEO Rolland Ollek and Steffen Mues, Mayor of the City of Siegen, gave an opening speech and cut the opening ribbon together.
“We are proud that a Siegen-based company, which started 35 years ago as a start-up at the University of Siegen, is now at the top of its industry and a global expert when it comes to high-end KVM in control rooms around the globe,” says Mues.
The ControlCenter-Experience (CCX) is a permanently installed control room. Here, the company shows how different systems and technologies interact, thus giving them the possibility to respond individually to customer demands during consulting. Unlike conventional showrooms, the CCX is not limited to an illuminated glass cabinet showcase in which KVM systems can only be viewed. Instead, you can experience technology live and in action. Now, G&D are able to offer a platform for personal live consulting on a real control room application, independent of time and place. Thanks to the approach of demonstrating KVM also via live stream, it is easier to provide individual advice to customers from other European countries and overseas.
The medium-sized company develops and produces KVM products for extending and switching computer signals, and operates on a global scale. KVM systems from G&D are installed in numerous control rooms around the globe – in air traffic control centers and airports, on ships, in TV & film production studios, the chemical and petrochemical industry as well as in the energy sector. G&D KVM products enable the extension and distributed switching of computer signals over a distance of up to 10,000 meters. They prevent disruptive heat and noise emissions at highly complex control room consoles and also enable access to fallback systems to make control rooms around the globe fail-safe.
