Matrox Avio Series: Dual-DVI Fiber Optic KVM Extender Solution for Graphics Systems
Uncompressed dual 1920x1200 video, keyboard, mouse, and USB devices extended up to 1 km from the host computer
Matrox Graphics Inc. has unveiled its Matrox Avio™ Series, a new line of fiber optic KVM extenders for graphics intensive design and visualization applications within the government, military, and other markets. The KVM extender transmitter/receiver pair enables users to secure the host computer in a call or operations center’s climate-controlled machine room by capturing the system’s I/O functionality and extending it up to 1000 meters over a single fiber optic cable. The feature-rich Avio Series supports uncompressed dual single-link DVI or one dual-link DVI video—at full resolution and frame rate—keyboard, mouse, stereo analog audio, and multiple USB HID and USB 2.0 peripherals, while making available a secondary user to access the host computer from the transmitter unit. Avio’s flexible design is compatible with Microsoft® Windows®, Mac OS X®, and Linux/Unix operating systems, allowing IT departments to standardize on one solution for enterprise-wide deployments.
"Matrox is pleased to unveil a new line of fiber optic KVM extender solutions designed to meet our customers' highest system performance and image quality requirements," said Caroline Injoyan, Business Development Manager at Matrox Graphics, Inc. "We've brought our expertise in video graphics technology and fiber optic extension into this product and engineered a high-bandwidth, plug and play solution that maintains system performance at the remote desktop—critical for any high-end workstation application."
