IHSEusa has released its new DVXi Quad-Head Extender for KVM signals over CATx or Fiber.
Offered in a 1 RU chassis, the DVXi Quad-Head supports a variety of signals including DVI-D, PS2, USB-HID, audio and RS232. It supports DVI-D video resolutions up to 1920×1200/60Hz for each channel and includes a loop-through video connection at the local unit for diagnostics or monitoring requirements.
It can also be configured to support USB 2.0 and/or CWDM fiber-optic technology.
For those workstations needing up to four displays per system, the DVXi Quad-Head can tackle high-end simulation graphics, visualization, command-and-control and digital signage environments.
It works with ISHEusa’s Draco line of KVM switcher devices or as a standalone extender set. These extenders are designed to carry high-end video, audio, and data over long distances with resolutions up to 1920×1200 in 24-bit color.
Distances up to 140 meters can be achieved with CATx or up to 400 meters with multimode fiber and 10 kilometers with single-mode fiber.
The DVXi Quad-Head extension system is comprised of a local unit (transmitter) located next to the computer or source CPU and a remote unit (receiver) located near the multi-display devices. Up to four DVI-D displays can be supported with one remote unit using up to five dedicated CATx or Fiber cables to connect the two devices.
For applications where limited fiber-optic paths are required, the DVXi Quad-Head can be configured with an optional CWDM transport, which reduces the amount of fiber channels from a maximum of 10 to only two. Upon receipt of all signals in a MUXED format from the local unit, the remote unit becomes a DEMUX device returning the signals back to their original port without any electronic conversion or signal modifications. All video and KVM signals from the source are transported over individual lightwaves through a singlemode transceiver.
