The ExiVision Fiber & catX (cat5, 5e, 6 & 7) KVM Extender family includes:-

KVM Extenders

KVMA Extenders

KVMC Extenders

Switching Extenders

 

The ExiVision KVM extender and switching extender product family is a series of products comprising transmitters and receivers. An ExiVision KVM transmitter co-locates with any computer and takes the output signals (Keyboard, Video, Mouse and {optionally} Serial and Audio ports) and encodes them in such a way that they can be passed down a fiber optic cable link or a single catX (cat5, cat5e, cat6 or cat7) cable.

 

An ExiVision KVM receiver decodes the signal it receives over the catX cables, and provides Video (VGA, DVI etc.) Keyboard and Mouse (PS/2 or USB type) and serial {if required} ports. A User can then use the computer at a distance of up to 10Km away, exactly as if the computer were right next to them.

 

Additionally though, ExiVision KVM Extenders have several key features which set them apart from other similar products.

 

 


 What is a KVM Extender?

A catX KVM Extender allows the keyboard, monitor and mouse (user console) and/or touch screen to be located up to 300m (1000ft.) away from the Server or computer it controls. Connection between the computer and the user console is achieved using normal network cable – UTP cat 5, 6 or 7). For longer distances fiber optic extenders can be used (up to 10km) or a tecnique known as KVM-over-IP can be used to control a Computer from anywhere in the world, no matter what the distance.

 

What is a KVMA Extender?

A KVMA Extender works in exactly the same way as does a KVM Extender (see above) but includes an Audio channel so that full muti-media computing is possible remotely from the source computer.

 

What is a KVMC Extender?

Also know as a KVMS Extender, this incorporates a serial port as well as the KVM ports. The serial port can be used in many ways, but is most commonly deployed to enable the use of a touch-screen, control a remote switching application of some kind, or to control power.

 

What is a Switching Extender?

A Switching Extender (otherwise known as an Extender Switch or an Extender/KVM switch) does everthing which a KVM Extender does – see above, BUT allows a user to switch between several (up to eight per receiver in the case of ExiVision) remote computers as well as allowing a user to control his own everyday computer from the same Keyboard and Monitor.

Features:
Action at a distance made simple. ExiVision  KVM Console Extenders let you operate a PC or server from a simple monitor, keyboard, and mouse at distances up to 300 meters (1000 feet) away using convenient, economical CAT 5 UTP cable.
On board video Gain and Equalisation adjustments let you tweak the video image for optimum viewing. For extra long cable runs, we include video RGB skew adjustment to fine tune the picture.

 

  • Cable length compensation adjustments are automatically performed

  • Simple on-board adjustment for Video equalization and signal gain means that video can be adjusted for clarity to suit the location and the operator.

  • Supports SVGA, VGA, XGA, RGB video modes

Supports PS/2 or USB keyboards and mice

  • Extend a KVM station up to 1,000 feet away from a CPU using CATx cable (CAT5, 5e, 6, or 7)

  • Video resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 @ 60Hz

  • Compatible with most KVM switches
     

  • Operating system independent

  • Uses a microprocessor to emulate the keyboard and mouse.  The keyboard and mouse on the remote unit do not have to be connected for the PC to boot; only the local unit must be connected to the PC

 

The ExiVision KVM extender is the ideal choice for any situation where access and control a computer or computers is required at a distance (up to 300m over structured cable or from anywhere in the world over IP)

ExiVision KVM Extenders allow you to access and control a computer up to 300 metres away from the KVM User via easily available and cost effective twisted pair CATx cable.  Use any length of UTP cable up to 300 metres. The ExiVision remote unit allows you to set the signal gain and equalization, and adjust the “skew” induced by some UTP cable types so that you see a solid and clear video image.  Lighting conditions and User preferences can change, so I is important to be able to make these adjustments whenever needed.

 

Access to your computers is made convenient in a variety of situations.  You can locate users away from hazardous industrial environments; locate computers away from areas vulnerable to theft of hardware and data, reduce noise and heat, and increase desk and floor space.
