Why are warranties so important?

You’ve just purchased HDMI-over-IP extenders for your video wall application. You’re in the middle of setting up your system in your corporate office lobby, when you reach for your glass of water and it tips over and spills all over your new device. You frantically clean up the mess only to discover the worst – the device cannot be recovered and the product warranty does not cover accidental damage. Then, you ask yourself how you could have overlooked the warranty details. Sigh.

As we all know too well, accidents happen. Some are even out of our control. If you live in an area prone to storms, for example, a power surge could cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in damaged equipment. That’s why it’s imperative for you to look over a product warranty before making a buying decision.

The Black Box Double Diamond™ Warranty protects Black Box-brand products* from accidental damage, including drops, water, and power surges. During the warranty period, Black Box will repair or replace your damaged equipment within one week of receipt at no charge.**

So, your water-damaged extender would be covered! And, even if your product warranty has expired, Black Box can extend the life of your equipment with repair service. We guarantee parts and labor on repairs for 90 days.

I recently learned about new warranty information for all audio/visual products. Beginning July 1, 2015, all AV products will come with a standard three-year warranty. Previously, most came with one-year warranties, some with two years, and a three-year warranty was available at an additional cost. The three-year warranty will soon be standardized across all AV products. And, some products, such as copper cables, manual switches, cabinets, and racks, are guaranteed for life!

Additionally, you can extend your warranty or protect a previously purchased Black Box-brand product** for an additional year—for only 10% of the current retail price! And when you do, we give you the second year of extended coverage free! For details, talk to a Black Box representative at 800-316-7107.

Three networking solutions for remote HVAC control

Here’s how industrial switches, media converters, and wireless Ethernet extenders enable one person to oversee the HVAC systems of several buildings in a large apartment complex.

In this scenario, a community of apartment buildings is spread out over a five-acre campus. Each has its own boiler room in the basement to house its heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment. The housing complex, while large, employs only one facilities contractor to look after the heating and cooling system. During an update of the HVAC system, the contractor wanted to make it possible for the entire system to be controlled from one central location.

1. Industrial Ethernet switches
Unlike the Ethernet switches in a wiring closet or computer center, Ethernet switches in harsh environments have to endure humidity, and temperature fluctuations. In this building automation application, Industrial Managed Gigabit Switches are used in the boiler rooms to connect and monitor the HVAC system. Encased in IP30-rated metal cases, the switches withstand extreme temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C and are protected from dirt and moisture. The switches also operate in a ring topology simplifying wiring and providing instantaneous failovers in case of a link break.

2. Industrial media converters
Copper cable connects the switches to the boilers, hot water tanks, HVAC, and other equipment. But a fiber backbone is used in the buildings for the range it provides and for its immunity to EMI/RFI from elevators, motors, and other building infrastructure. To make the connections, Industrial Media Converters are used to convert copper to fiber and back to copper again.

3. Wireless Ethernet extenders
To connect the Ethernet networks between the multiple apartment buildings, Wireless Ethernet Extenders are used to eliminate the cost and hassle of trenching new fiber cable between buildings. More industrial media converters are used to convert the fiber backbone to copper on each rooftop.

Each Ethernet Extender is mounted on a pole on the roof of each building, creating a “hub and spoke” arrangement, with the “hub” residing on the roof of the control room building. The configuration is simple, as the extenders are pre-configured to work with each other. Their tough, waterproof enclosures make them ideal for outdoor use.

Total control from one location.
The network provides visibility into all four buildings, enabling the facilities contractor to monitor and control the entire HVAC system via IP.

The Changing Landscape of Secure KVM Switching Certifications

Until recently, the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) used Common Criteria Evaluation & Validation Scheme (CCEVS) to evaluate and approve KVM switches for security. EAL2 and EAL4+ are tests regarding the process of the design, testing, verification, and shipping of security products. This protection profile is an international standardized process for information technology security evaluation, validation, and certification.

NIAP has determined that EAL and CCEVS are no longer adequate security standards for KVM switches that connect to systems with differing security classifications. As a result, they  upgraded the Protection Profile (PP) for peripheral sharing switches to PPS 3.0. Still, the next generation of secure switches are going to need to be TEMPEST-approved for the tightest security measures available.

TEMPEST testing, while classified, is regarded as a process that assesses the port-to-port isolation required for certain KVM switches. A TEMPEST approval means the necessary isolation is achieved and qualified. Additionally, the threat of data leaking by various covert electromagnetic eavesdropping mechanisms has been evaluated and found to be secure.

The TEMPEST designation is often required by military organizations. TEMPEST, as a security standard, pertains to technical security countermeasures, standards, and instrumentation that prevent or minimize the exploitation of vulnerable data communications equipment by technical surveillance or eavesdropping.

A desktop KVM switch at its most basic, is simply a hardware device that enables one workstation consisting of a keyboard, video monitor, and mouse to control more than one CPU. Desktop KVM switches are usually 2- or 4-port switches, and by pushing button or using keystrokes, users can easily access information and applications on completely separate systems.

Secure KVM switches fill a special need in switching for users, such as those in the military, government agencies, or law enforcement, who need to access information stored at different classification levels on physically separate systems. A secure desktop KVM switch is usual a two or four-port switch that provides control and separation of PCs connected to networks of differing security classifications. TEMPEST-approved switches offer the following features:

  •  High port-to-port electrical isolation, which facilitates data separation (RED/BLACK). Channel-to-channel –80-dB to 60-dB crosstalk isolation protects against signal snooping, so software tools and applications cannot be used to access any connected computer from another connected computer.
  • Switches are permanently hard wired, preventing access from one CPU to the others or access from one network to others.
  • External tamper-evident seals make it easy to spot attempted tampering.
  • Users can safely switch among as many as four computers operating at different classification levels.
  • Unidirectional flow of keyboard and mouse data means the computer cannot leak data along K/M signaling channels.
  • USB host controller erases entire RAM at each channel switchover. This prevents residual data from remaining in the channel after a channel change and being transferred to another computer.
  • Only keyboard and mouse devices can be enumerated at the keyboard and mouse ports. Any other USB peripheral connected will be inhibited from operating, preventing the upload or download of unauthorized data.

The Secure Desktop KVM Switches with USB from Black Box surpass the security profiles of most other KVM switches because they have received approvals and certifications in the TEMPEST testing standard.

3 Ways to Extend Your Ethernet LAN

Copper CATx cable supports Ethernet distances up to 100 meters. That’s not a problem when you’re connecting workstations in a building. But what happens when you need to extend the reach of your LAN beyond 100 meters to connect a distant department, a building across campus or across town, Wi-Fi access points, IP security cameras, or even remote monitoring stations in industrial environments.

That’s where Ethernet extension comes in. Depending on your environment and application, there are three ways to extend your Ethernet LAN beyond the nearest closet.

1. LAN extension over fiber optic cable with media convertersExtend-Ethernet-LAN
Media converters are a popular and economical solution for converting Ethernet cable runs from copper to fiber. They can be used in pairs (near-end/far-end) or with Ethernet switches.

Fiber optic cable offers the best performance for long-range network extension. That’s why the telephone and cable companies made such a big deal about using it. Multimode fiber has a range of 550 meters for 10/100/1000 Ethernet links. Single-mode fiber offers distances of more than 30 km for 10/100/1000 Ethernet extension.

Fiber also offers the advantage of being immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI), surges, spikes, and ground loops. That makes it well suited for connecting buildings across campus, across town, and in industrial environments.

There are a number of different types of media converter options ranging from simple, unmanaged, compact converters that mount on panels or DIN rails to managed converters that mount in equipment racks. There are also converters available for commercial and industrial applications. A common industrial application is to use a media converter with PoE capabilities to power and backhaul an IP camera signal over fiber.

2. LAN extension over existing copper cabling with Ethernet extenders.
In some cases, it’s possible to use existing facilities to extend your LAN. If there is an existing twisted-pair copper or coax cable run, then you can extend your network with a pair of Ethernet extenders. Use one at each end to convert Ethernet to DSL (digital subscriber line) and back again to Ethernet. Extenders can deliver 50-Mbps speeds over 300 meters or about 10-Mbps at 1400 meters.

Using existing twisted-pair cablingtwisted-pair-extend-LAN
A common application is a security checkpoint services upgrade. The checkpoint may have originally been connected only with twisted-pair cable to support an analog phone. By using a pair of Ethernet extenders (near-end/far-end), the checkpoint can be upgraded to support an Ethernet LAN connection, a VoIP phone, and an IP camera.

Using existing coax cabling
Another common application is a security camera network upgrade. When you replace older, analog security camera systems with newer, digital IP cameras, you can save a lot of installation time (and labor costs) by using the existing coax cabling with Ethernet extender on each end.

3. Wireless Ethernet extensionWireless-Extension
2.4-/5-GHz radio extension
Wireless Ethernet extenders provide a very cost-effective method for extending a LAN/WAN beyond 100 meters. They eliminate the need to buy new cable, dig expensive trenches for fiber cable, and also the time-consuming waits for rights of way.

Wireless Ethernet extenders are the most seamless way to extend LAN connections up to several miles across office parks; on business, educational, and medical campuses; in enterprise business complexes; and in industrial settings, such as factories or oil/gas field drilling operations, and even in traffic control.

Wireless Ethernet is frequently used to connect line-of-sight networks that are miles apart. While wireless extension is often used in enterprise business applications, where it really shines is in industrial applications, such as data acquisition, control, and monitoring; HVAC controls; and security and surveillance, to name a few. The extender radios can also be PoE powered to simplify installation.

Cellular extension
Cellular wireless routers provide an alternative to wireless Ethernet extension. Anywhere you can get cellular phone reception, you can set up a network. Cellular routers can be used to provide the primary network connection for industrial environments where it’s too expensive or impractical to run a wired access network, such as cable or DSL. Cellular routers are also used in factories, oil/gas field drilling operations, and in traffic control.

Cellular routers are available for all the major carriers (AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon) and all networks (3G, 4G, and LTE). Cellular routers eliminate any line-of-sight and distance limitations that may exist with radio wireless extension.

The secret to creating good digital signage content

Educate. Entertain. Engage. Whatever your overall digital signage goal may be, a key part of that success is the quality of the content. Without useful and easy-to-understand content, you will lose your viewer’s interest.

So, where do you get fresh, relevant digital signage content? And, when and how should you present it?

Reduce, reuse, and repurpose.
You can use brand assets such as logos, images, original photos, stock photos/footage, and existing marketing materials for signage presentation, along with all the included visual icons, colors, and text fonts. This all enables you to maintain a look and feel that matches previously created marketing materials.

You can reuse more than just images. Repurpose approved tag lines, corporate boilerplate, and marketing copy from sales materials. This transmedia approach of repurposing and adapting existing media elements can significantly reduce digital signage design and production time. Plus, the re-use of such media assets can improve the consistency of brand presentation while reinforcing the brand identity.

PowerPoint or keynote slides offer ease of composition of text and graphic elements. Individual slides can be saved as .jpeg or .pdf files for playout, but because they lack the motion that compels notice, viewing, and action, they should be used sparingly, and as part of a playloop that includes animated messages.

Website content is typically too busy and information intensive for digital signage. However, you can easily repurpose text and graphics from websites to suit digital signage viewing and messaging. The key to using Web content is to distill the messages down to key elements including features, benefits, and a call to action.

Quick tip: Sans-serif fonts and large font sizes work best for at-a-glance reading. Avoid using too many fonts in a single piece of content, and keep colored text at a minimum. Avoid writing in all caps.

Design relevant content for a specific audience, context, and timedigital-signage-content-hallway of the day.
Information is powerful. People make or change their opinions based on it. It offers viewers a reason to shift their opinion or to act. So, providing information that increases the pertinence or the value of a product or service to the viewer is important. Information can include features, benefits, differentiators, value propositions, ways of using a product, pricing, or special offers.

Content must present the benefits inherent in the message to answer this question in the viewer’s mind: “What is in it for me?” By answering this question, a communicator increases the probability of the intended action being taken.

Keep in mind, just because content works well for one audience doesn’t mean it will work well for another.

Take advantage of the fact that dynamic signage enables real-time messaging. Deliver content that most speaks to the target audience at the location and time of day. When developing your content, take into account the age, gender, jobs, level of education, and personal income and wealth of your target audience. For example, a store’s antacid advertisement could carry a different message to an older, health-conscientious consumer than to a young consumer shopping for junk food.

Again, it comes back to delivering the right message at the right place and at the right time.

Quick tip: Consider where your audience will be viewing the signage – how close will they be to the sign? How long do you expect your audience to view the sign? A hallway, for example, may call for a short delay, but a waiting room may call for a longer delay.

Keep it simple.
Regardless of where the digital signage is viewed, it should not include paragraphs of text. It should be seen as a communication-at-a-glance display where viewers grab pieces of content at a time.

Quick tip: Keep words few and short; rewrite a few times to make it more concise. Write in phrases rather than full sentences. Use active voice and action verbs.

Consider the message length.
Dynamic content is most effective when clear, short textual messages are presented with graphics and motion. The best spots present basic information and ask for action in a succinct and direct manner. A story is best told in 10–15 seconds with three-second messages being combined to form a complete spot. For example, a 10-second game promotion spot would include text of “our team vs. their team,” “the game date,” and “buy tickets” messaging transitioning with the graphics of a team logo, player, or uniform.

The duration (i.e., length) of a spot should be in context of the viewing time and the overall playloop time. As guidelines, a complete spot should be viewed easily during a single viewing episode, with multiple spots typically being presented in the same viewing episode. As with other media, digital signage spots become stale after having been viewed seven times. Fortunately, a digital signage spot can be recomposed in variations of the same message with minimal effort, offering a refreshed delivery of the same message.

Quick tip: To create a fresh, non-pattern feel, mix the duration times from screen to screen in a set. Change up your layouts so viewers notice a change.

digital-signage-content-buildingKeep the content fresh.
Messages can typically be viewed between two and seven times; after that, they’re commonly disregarded by viewers. By including multiple playout zones on a display, each with different playloops or data feed messages, the network operator is able to allow content spots to run for a longer “flight” period.

Playloops: A playloop comprises a number of individual content spots that play out one after the other. The length of the playloop coincides with the viewer’s ability to see the messages. If, for example, the average waiting time in a medical office is 20 minutes, the playloop would include 20 minutes of messages. If someone takes an elevator many times in a day or week, the playloop would coincide with his or her total visit time.

Dayparts: These use playloops of content spots that are most relevant to the time of day. For instance, the playloop shown at concession stands during the final period of a game may show taxi or public transit promotions and food that would need to be discarded if not sold. Playloops in the workplace should get employees working on the business of the company on Monday and urge completing work as the week ends.

Quick tip: Consider where your audience will be viewing the signage – how close will they be to the sign? How long do you expect your audience to view the sign? A hallway, for example, may call for a short delay, but a waiting room may call for a longer delay.
