GEFEN HD KVM over IP
The Gefen HD KVM over IP extends HDMI, USB, 2-way analog audio, RS-232, and IR, over a Gigabit Local Area Network. Resolutions up to 1080p Full HD and 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) are supported. The Senders and Receivers can be automatically or manually configured to unique IP addresses to allow the connection of multiple units to the same network. Multiple Receiver units can simultaneously connect to any Sender unit within the network including the Gefen KVM over LAN products with HDMI, DVI, or VGA video, to create a virtual crosspoint matrix of just over 65,000 Sender and Receiver units total, depending on the network bandwidth and number of ports on the network switch (see Note) When using HDCP-encrypted content, only HDMI Senders and Receiver units can accept and display the content. Each Receiver unit has a built-in Ethernet switch and two additional RJ-45 Ethernet ports to allow for the connection of computers and other IP-enabled devices. USB 2.0 data rates up to 480 Mbps are supported in addition to backward-compatibility with USB 1.1. Each Receiver unit provides two USB ports with up to 500mA current draw per connector, providing access to keyboard, mouse, and other compatible devices. Bi-directional analog audio capability allows audio to be transported between the Sender and the Receiver units. The built-in mic pre-amp on the Receiver unit ensures compatibility with a variety of microphones. IR commands from the Receiver side can be extended to sources connected to any of the Sender units. RS-232 serial control can also be extended between each Sender and Receiver. The built-in web server interface makes operation, set-up, and configuration simple and intuitive. The Gefen HD KVM over IP is the perfect solution for large scale remote workstation access and digital signage applications.
