LAS VEGAS—Gefen's HD KVM over IP solution won the AV Technology Best of Show Award at InfoComm 2014.
This product sends 1080p high definition content over a LAN with the option to integrate different video formats and create a virtual, cross-point matrix. It enables users to remotely control computers from any workstation on the LAN when using a Gigabit Ethernet switch. HDMI video, four USB peripherals, bi-directional audio, RS-232 and IR are transported on the LAN with optional extension up to 100 meters on sender and receiver sides using a single CAT-5 cable. This extension system features latency of less than two frames.
The HD KVM supports additional sender and receiver units on the same LAN. Each sender and receiver can be automatically or manually configured to a unique IP address to support multiple units. Up to 256 sender and a theoretical limit of just over 65,000 units total can be routed through the LAN, creating a scalable, virtual cross-point matrix with no additional wiring. It can also be combined on the same LAN with Gefen''s DVI and VGA KVM over IP extenders, supporting analog and digital video in a virtual matrix that sends data to any workstation regardless of the video format. Resolutions are supported up to 1920x1200 at 60 FPS.
Each system includes a Web server interface for configuration and setup, and each receiver unit comes equipped with an Ethernet switch and two Ethernet ports for connecting additional computers at the remote location.
