    Thinklogical Introduces the TLX1280, Industry’s Largest 10G Matrix Switch, at InfoComm 2019

    1280-Port Matrix Switch Supporting 4K Video, Audio, KVM, and USB With No Signal

    Compression or Added Latency Demonstrated in Booth 2561

    MILFORD, Conn. – June 10, 2019 — Thinklogical, A Belden Brand, will introduce the TLX1280, the industry’s largest and highest capacity matrix switch, at InfoComm 2019, June 12-14 in Orlando, in booth 2561.

    The TLX1280 is a non-blocking, 1280-port matrix switch that provides complete, any-to-any switching of video, audio, KVM, USB and other AV, IT and computer peripheral signals. The 42RU tall matrix supports single and multi-mode fiber-optic connectivity, is scalable from 32 to 1280 ports, and can be configured as a unidirectional 1280×1280 or a bidirectional 640×640 switch.

    The TLX1280 delivers 100 percent uncompressed, 10Gbps signal paths per port, with the lowest signal latency in the industry. When combined with TLX extenders, the TLX1280 offers precise, pixel-for-pixel transmission and switching of UHD, HDR and 4K DCI resolution video — up to 4096 x 2160 resolution, 60Hz frame rate, 4:4:4 chroma subsampling and 30-bit per pixel color depth — with no visual artifacts, jitter or lost frames, and instantaneous computer peripheral and control surface responsiveness.

    “With the introduction of the TLX1280, Thinklogical now offers the industry’s widest and most scalable line of secure video distribution and KVM matrix switches and extenders designed to meet mission-critical use cases,” said Olivier Bojarski, president of Thinklogical, A Belden Brand. “Unlike IP-based AV systems, the uncompressed, high-bandwidth signal stream and flexible switching options found in the TLX1280 make it the first choice for applications where security, video quality and smooth peripheral performance are paramount.”

    Ideal for complex, large-scale AV applications found in government, defense, intelligence and homeland security command and control operations center environments, the TLX1280 is architected to user’s critical data and maintains isolation between multiple signal paths through the switch. The TLX1280 is also protocol agnostic, supporting all common AV and IT interfaces and signal formats. This allows users to consolidate multiple signals and system switching requirements into a single chassis for cost savings and improved productivity and performance.

    Other demonstrations in the Thinklogical booth at InfoComm include the Integrated Client Transmitter all-in-one PC client and KVM transmitter module, System Management Portfolio (SMP) 2 system management software, and TLX 10G video, audio and USB extenders.

    TLX1280 Features:

    • Configurable up to a unidirectional 1280×1280 or a bidirectional 640×640 matrix
    • Dedicated 10Gbps uncompressed bandwidth per port with no added latency
    • Seamless re-clocking technology maintains signal integrity
    • Protocol agnostic: supports all common AV and IT signal formats
    • Supports single mode and multi-mode fiber optic cabling configurations
    • Completely non-blocking architecture enables true “any-to-any” switching
    • Extend and switch [email protected] 4:4:4 video, audio, USB and KVM up to 80km over fiber
    • MTBF over 100,000 hours
    • Hot-swappable data input/output cards, fan trays, optical modules
    • Redundant and hot-swappable power supplies, with automatic failover
    • Redundant and hot-swappable control cards, with automatic failover
    • Integration with Thinklogical’s System Management Portfolio (SMP) for simplified configuration, switch control and system management
    • Expected to achieve IA (information assurance) accreditation; certification testing in process.

    The TLX1280 is available for order now from Thinklogical and authorized partners. More

    HEARST CONNECTICUT MEDIA GROUP NAMES THINKLOGICAL, A BELDEN BRAND A WINNER OF THE SOUTHERN CONNECTICUT 2018 TOP WORKPLACES AWARD

    Thinklogical, A Belden Brand, has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by Hearst Connecticut Media Group. This is the fifth year Thinklogical has been recognized with this award.

    The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few. Thinklogical was one of 50 employers selected as a Top Workplace out of nearly 1,000 organizations invited to participate.

    “The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey added, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

    “This award is especially meaningful as it represents the direct feedback of our employees regarding their level of engagement in their workplace and their confidence in the direction of the company,” said Olivier Bojarski, president of Thinklogical. “We achieved this recognition through the dedication and hard work of our employees. Thanks to our team, Thinklogical continues to be a technology innovator and trusted partner to some of the world’s most influential organizations.”

    Thinklogical, A Belden Brand Introduces All-in-One Solution for Extending Virtual Desktops at ISE 2018 and WEST 2018

    MILFORD, Conn. – Feb. 5, 2017 — Thinklogical, A Belden Brand, today announced a new all-in-one solution for securely extending VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) architectures, with demonstrations at ISE 2018, Feb. 6-9 in Amsterdam, in booth 10.R140, and AFCEA WEST, Feb. 6-8 in San Diego, in booth 1801.

    The TLX Client Integration module is a full-featured virtual machine processor combined with a high-performance KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) extender, eliminating the need for a separate client device in VDI installations. The integrated client machine can host any standard VDI client software, including those produced by VMware®, Citrix®, Microsoft®, and others. It is also compatible with many third party accredited software images.

    For security, productivity or performance reasons, customers in government, defense, media and entertainment often back-rack their physical VDI client machines in secure IT rooms, providing the user with remote access to the devices through a separate KVM extension and matrix switching system.

    The TLX Client Integration module simplifies this architecture by combining a VDI client with a KVM extender transmitter, eliminating the need to purchase separate clients and KVM transmitters. This reduces hardware and cabling complexity and cost and saves up to 50% of the rack space previously required.

    “Thinklogical developed the TLX Client Integration module in response to customer requests for hardware savings and better space utilization in KVM-extended virtual desktop applications,” said Mitch Hillsberg, senior director of engineering for Thinklogical. “This module addresses the need to simplify extended VDI architectures without compromising data security, video image quality or computer peripheral performance.”

    TLX Client Integration features and benefits include:

    • Increased security and reduced threat of intentional hacking or accidental data breach, by removing network cables and USB ports from user desktop
    • Uncompressed KVM signal management with smooth control surface performance and no added latency, video artifacts or dropped frames
    • Support for zero, thin and thick client applications
    • Reduced hardware costs, lower operational expenses and up to 50% less rack space
    • Improved productivity, efficiency and flexibility
    • Reduced IT hardware, cabling, and clutter at the desktop
    • Seamless integration with Thinklogical’s IA-accredited extension and matrix switching solution for use in secure, multi-classification applications

    The TLX Client Integration module is available for order now and will be released in the second quarter of 2018. More information visit:  https://www.thinklogical.com/products/integrated-client-module/
