Tailored AV/KVM/IoT solutions from Black Box installed in a central control room provide instant access to distributed systems or local command rooms, comprehensive data visualization, as well as data capture through intelligent IoT sensor hubs. These solutions are designed to help you mitigate inherent risks in your control room processes.
