Gefen’s New HDMI KVM over IP Extender Streams Audio, Video, USB, Microphone and Control over IP using the Ethernet
Indianapolis, IN Booth 3725
- (Virtual Press Office
) – Gefen’s newest KVM works with an Ethernet-based LAN, enabling a plug and play method of sending high definition video and audio with USB peripherals over a standard Ethernet infrastructure. Specifically, it streams HDMI at the same time and over the same network cable as two channel audio, microphone in/out, USB, RS-232 and IR. A computer source is connected to the sender, which links to the network. The receiver connects the display and other peripheral devices to the same network, providing KVM, control and audio functionality using the same network cable. The recommended network is a Gigabit Ethernet LAN, which can distribute sources from the sender to any receiver. Each sender unit can connect to multiple receivers when in broadcast mode to deliver the same source to multiple destinations. Up to 16 sender and receiver units can be combined in any networked system. Sender and receiver units can be configured to unique IP addresses and when combined, can be matrix switched for improved productivity. Each receiver unit provides two independent Ethernet jacks to connect additional senders, receivers or Ethernet-based equipment.
Two USB ports on each receiver support computer peripheral connectivity at the display side. When installed, sender and receiver units connect to an Ethernet switch or router, each using a single CAT-5 cable up to 330 feet (100m) in length. Built-in EDID management ensures signal integrity during all switching activity. USB 2.0 data travels at rates up to 480 Mbps. This product is also HDCP-compliant.
