Aten has added two KVM-over-IP extenders that allow users to locate computers in an environment isolated from the workstation
Aten has released the KE6910 and KE6912 DVI-D Dual Link KVM-over-IP extenders that are made up of high-performance, IP-based transmitters. Once connected to the computer and receiver, users are provided with console access from a separate location. Both models allow access to a computer system from a remote USB console over an intranet, allowing users to locate computers in an environment isolated from the workstation.
The two extenders feature a single DVI display at each end which work to provide resolutions of 2560 x 2048 @ 50Hz and lossless video compression quality with minimal latency. Both also support a 2K x 2K video resolution, widely used in the air traffic control industry. The KE6910 and KE6912 can be connected via an RJ45 port or SFP slot. The transmitter and receiver can be connected either directly to each other or via a high-speed network, or over a copper-based or fibre-based LAN.
The KE6912 uses a PoE function, supplying the power through a PoE network switch. This feature eliminates the need for a power adapter and is said to reduce power configuration costs. The KE6910 provides dual power supplies.
Both extenders can either be placed on a desk, mounted on a wall or at the rear of a rack due to the space-saving 0U rack-mount design. They can be used as point-to-point/point-to-multipoint/multipoint-to-point extenders or integrated into a KVM-over-IP matrix system when combined with the KE Matrix Management Software.
