Gefen’s HD KVM over IP solution wins InfoComm award

AUTHOR: Inavate

Gefen’s HD KVM over IP is capable of sending 1080p HD content over a LAN while also allowing for the option to integrate video formats and create a virtual, cross-point matrix. The product also won the AV Technology Best of Show award at InfoComm 2014.

With the HD KVM over IP, users can access content by keyboard, video display and mouse. Video resolutions in the HDMI format up to 1080p, four USB peripherals, bi-directional audio, RS-232 control signals and IR are transported on the LAN with optional extension up to 100 meters on both sender and receiver sides using a single CAT-5 cable. This extension system boasts latency of less than two frames.

The sender/receiver system allows the remote control of computers from any workstation on the LAN when using a Gigabit Ethernet switch. Each sender and receiver can be automatically or manually configured to a unique IP address to support multiple units. Up to 256 sender and a theoretical limit of just over 65,000 units total can be routed through the LAN, creating a scalable, virtual cross-point matrix with no additional wiring. Each receiver unit comes equipped with an Ethernet switch and two Ethernet ports for connecting additional computers at the remote location.
