Black Box has developed two new KVM transmitters, which can be deployed in server rooms and OB trucks where rack space is limited and costly.
Both the DVI and DisplayPort transmitters are compatible with USB 2.0 connectivity, and support video resolutions up to 1920×[email protected]
Black Box, a KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) solutions provider, has announced the addition of two IP-based KVM transmitters to the Agility KVM product family. The USB-powered, small form factor DVI transmitter and DisplayPort transmitter are both designed for deployments within server rooms and outside broadcasting (OB) trucks where rack space is limited.
Josh Whitney, senior vice-president, technology product solutions business, Black Box, commented: “Since rack space is increasingly becoming a critical cost factor for our customers from industries such as broadcast, public safety and air traffic management, we’ve been anticipating their demand for KVM transmitters that help to overcome that challenge. These small, IP-based transmitters extend USB and multiple video resolutions up to HD over a Gigabit Ethernet network, and enable simple plug-and-play connectivity for servers and users.”
The KVM transmitters support video resolutions up to 1920×[email protected] from a DVI or DisplayPort interface, and USB 2.0 connectivity supporting HID devices, as well as graphic tablets, touch screens, and bi-directional USB audio. By connecting them into an existing or dedicated Gigabit Ethernet network, combined with Agility receivers and an iPath controller, the installation can be built out to a KVM matrix switching system.
Whitney concluded: “These new Zero U transmitters will not only help companies save money for rack space and power consumption, they will also make scaling of new or existing Agility KVM systems much easier. IT system planners can now build out their connectivity infrastructure as they grow, by simply adding another small transmitter device per server.”
