MultiConsoling® – the network-independent real-time control of your control room
MultiConsoling® is your real-time control center. It connects all desired sources – from the computer to the camera – with the monitors at the workplace, the large screen wall and even with the decentralized crisis room.
Convincing advantages of MultiConsoling®
Fast: Image display and keyboard/mouse operation in real time
Intuitive: 3D user interface in the design of the control room
Secure:Transmission independent of the IP network
Flexible: No additional software required on your source computers
Comprehensive control: Connection of decentralized control rooms with high availability
Free-Seating: The operator can change workplaces within a few seconds
With MultiConsoling®the large display wall begins at the workplace!
MultiConsoling® simultaneously records all signals from the computer to be displayed (keyboard, mouse, monitor, audio), analogue or digital cameras, TV (image and audio) and distributes them in real time to individual displays or as a BigPicture to several large screens. Thanks to the myGUI® user interface, every operator has control of the video wall and the workstations within just four minutes!
This hardware solution is convincing even in safety-critical settings
The user verdict says it all: “Flexibility, convenience, usability and real-time transmission without delay – comparable systems can’t keep up!” MultiConsoling® establishes new standards in hundreds of control stations. It is not only the effortlessly intuitive operation with the unique myGUI® user interface that is convincing. The focus is also on the security relevance of KVM control. MultiConsoling® makes network switches based on proprietary protocols obsolete. Thanks to special hardware components and the separation between the KVM system and the corporate network, MultiConsoling® is suitable even for security-critical facilities. Redundancy concepts for every security level ensure trouble-free control room operation.
Intuitive user interface – comfort and
safety with the myGUI® Controller
Clearly structured and intuitively understandable: the myGUI® user interface (GUI: Graphical User Interface) in the 3D layout of your control room has distinguished itself in practical tests for years. With one click, the operator controls workstations and large-screen technology as well as cameras, meeting rooms and building technology from any location.
The JST development team combines this effortless control of all systems with reliable security standards for the highly sensitive sources in the control room environment – with the myGUI® controller, specially designed for the myGUI® database. You can easily implement strategic rights and role management using this solution. You decide who has access to the existing data and to what extent.
MultiConsoling® -Grabber: latency-free
transmission with maximum security
Performance, comfort and safety – how can a combination of these three requirements be realized even in safety-critical control room facilities? The hardware solutions of the MultiConsoling® system provide the perfect solution. In the outsourced equipment room, grabbers access signals from the protected source PCs, send them to the MultiCenter and thus make latency-free transmissions possible.
Without any compromise in quality, the grabbers can thus generate two benefits for control room operations at the same time: On the one hand, the security concept is taken into account, and on the other, the control room climate is optimized by reducing noise and heat. The MultiConsoling® concept completely eliminates the need for software installations.
MultiConsoling® provides the direct link to the world of VMs
Immediate switching between virtuality and reality. GrabberVM technology, in combination with MultiConsoling®, enables the perfect integration of virtual systems. While one monitor is occupied with the applications of a conventional PC, another receives the signals of the virtual machine.
The operating concept allows direct access to the VM server sources via the GrabberVM. The user switches between the individual applications without noticeable differences. The advantages of this comfortable use of the Virtual Machines are obvious: more efficient deployment of the hardware with a quantitative reduction of the required components, but also reduced maintenance and energy costs with high availability.
JST MultiStreaming sets new, user-friendly standards in control room operation – compare!
When comparing with conventional KVM systems, it quickly becomes clear: MultiStreaming is always a nose ahead. It’s not just about the effortlessly intuitive operation, high speed and availability. Outstanding functions such as SplitView and Dynamic SplitControl also secure first place in the direct comparison. See for yourself:
Proprietary: A manufacturer-specific, unpublished, protocol connects special hardware together.
TCP/IP (network): A connection is established between the devices via a standardized network
Latency due to IP conversion
AES 128 bit encrypted

Bild 1 | A convincing technical concept in the Smart Control Center of GETEC Switzerland, in the industrial park Muttenz near Basel. Reno Schröder (technical project manager) about process control via MultiConsoling®: “We looked around on the market. However, comparable systems could not keep up in terms of performance, intuitive interfaces or real-time mouse movements.”
Bild 2 | Flexible source switching is possible without delay in GETEC’s Smart Control Center with MultiConsoling®: The monitor at the front right clearly displays all sources with the myGUI® graphical user interface, thus facilitating intuitive operation.
Bild 3 | Highest possible fail safety for critical infrastructures: In the network control center of Travenetz in Lübeck, the MultiCenter, the heart of the JST MultiConsoling® system, was designed redundantly.
Bild 4 | With the CommandPads integrated into the table surface, every operator at the Travenetz control center in Lübeck has all sources permanently in view. Control via the MultiConsoling® system becomes child’s play with the myGUI® user interface.
Bild 5 | Multiple redundant systems at the transmission system operator Tennet: A seamless and trouble-free power supply has top priority. In order to warranty this also during a migration process, the project managers decided to use the JST MultiConsoling®.
Bild 6 | Innovative technical components as the basis for the MultiConsoling® control room system support Germany’s smooth power supply in the two control centers of the transmission system operator Tennet. Project manager Patrick Bernasch-Mellech lists some of the advantages of the new technology: “Colleagues switch back and forth quickly and without barriers. Whether power plant deployment or weather reports – they access all the important data on the situation in the German power grid.”
Bild 7 | Redundancy for maximum safety on the site of STORAG ETZEL’s cavern storage facility in Friedeburg, Lower Saxony. The lower two components are the MultiCenter for control room operation with MultiConsoling® – here in double version for maximum safety.
Bild 8 | Intuitive and clear: The arrangement of sources in the myGUI® user interface makes getting started with MultiConsoling® technology at Stadtwerke Steinburg child’s play. With just a mouse and a keyboard, all applications can be switched on to any monitor. The formerly complicated handling with elaborate operating steps is a thing of the past.
Bild 9 | Convenient solution for system control with MultiConsoling® in the network control center of Stadtwerke Steinburg: On the CommandPad – here in the mobile version – all sources are clearly displayed and can be operated directly on the touchscreen.
Bild 10 | The view into the technical room of Stadtwerke Steinburg reveals some of the hardware elements for the JST MultiConsoling® operating concept: Grabber with associated power unit. Since the individual components can be outsourced thanks to MultiConsoling®, the heat and noise pollution in the control room is significantly reduced.
Bild 11 | The entire technical concept of Europe’s most modern refinery measuring station in Schwedt, Brandenburg, is based on the MultiConsoling® system from JST. Multiple redundancy warrants for PCK Raffinerie GmbH a plant availability of almost 100 percent with maximum ease of operation.
Bild 12 | The intuitive myGUI® user interface was one of the reasons why the control room team at STORAG ETZEL in Friedeburg opted for the control room operation with MultiConsoling® with broad agreement. The operators were also convinced by the flexible handling of the system in the measuring station responsible for gas storage.
