MLB Network Hits Home Run With G&Dʼs ControlCenter-Digital

Jun 28, 2021

27 June 2021 MLB Network replaced parts of its older analog KVM system with G&D’s digital and modular matrix system (Image credit: Guntermann & Drunck) SECAUCUS, N.J. —We are glad that we decided to invest in a G&D KVM system for our full KVM replacement solution. In addition to the system features and the product quality, G&D worked with us as a trusted partner on Phase One of the project, providing impressive support during the planning and implementation phases. MLB Network is currently available to  approximately 68 million homes throughout the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, as well as live, authenticated streaming via MLB. For those operations, MLB Network has two G&D matrix systems in its headquarters in Secaucus. The ControlCenter-Digital frames have up to 288 and up to 160 dynamic ports. UPGRADING OLDER KVM MLB Network replaced parts of its older analog KVM system with G&D’s digital and modular matrix system, delivering added flexibility due to an increase in ports coupled with G&D’s dynamic port system. This gave us the option to configure individual KVM workplaces with either cascading or a bidirectional connection of the matrix systems allowing easy expansion of its KVM infrastructure. MLB Network is now working with a mix of DP, DVI and VGA servers connected to the ControlCenter-Digital matrix frames. The CPU units have either individual power supplies or are connected to a central power supply unit (MultiPower-12 for up to 12 x G&D CPU module). On different physical locations from the matrix switches, the ability to mix CAT-x and fiber-optical cards in the matrix frame became important. The modularity of the G&D system gives MLB Network the option to expand its KVM installation step by step. Since the redesign of MLB Network’s KVM infrastructure was complex, the flexibility of G&D’s matrix systems was a perfect match for short- and long-term needs. FLEXIBLE, MODULAR DESIGN The CCD 288 system has 18 modular cards, which can be used either to connect fiber single mode, fiber multi-mode or CAT-x cables. Since both the switch card and the control card are modular, the cards can be easily replaced if necessary. At just 9RU height, the frame is quite small for a 288-port matrix system, and it can be expanded with G&D’s KVM MatrixGrid feature, which delivers more flexibility as a simple cascade. The system also offers MLB Network a simple configuration via web interface, plus the option to configure individual user rights, benefits from easy operation (e.g. switching via individually defined hot keys or by on screen display) and promises high reliability. To accommodate potential future growth in infrastructure, MLB Network is planning to implement G&D’s KVM Matrix-Grid function for bidirectional access between different matrix frames. This will enable the network to interconnect CCD matrix frames that are installed on different locations within its facility, as if working in a virtual super matrix system. With this major expansion, MLB Network is now ready to hit a home run. Steve Rittenberg, senior director of engineering, MLB Networks, has been with the company for more than nine years; prior to that he worked at such companies as LA Digital Post, Video Corp. of America and Moviola.
