NEWS: DVI, USB, RS-232 and Audio to 2000 Meters.

Gefen today announced that its newest KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) extender is currently shipping.

CHATSWORTH, CA - Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced that its newest KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) extender is currently shipping. The DVI-3600HD comes with rack mountable sender and receiver units equipped with ports for DVI, USB, RS-232 and analog audio. When connected to a local computer and a remote workstation, the DVI-3600HD delivers high resolution (1920x1200) video in the DVI format, up to four USB peripherals such as keyboard/mouse, printer, camera and hard drive, RS-232 automation or control and analog audio from sender to receiver. Distances up to 6600 feet (2000m) are reached using a single mode fiber optic cable. The use of multi-mode fiber optic cable will reach distances up to 1650 feet (500m).


Because USB peripherals can be connected at both local (sender) and remote (receiver) locations, users can set up two distant workstations and alternate between the two. When in local mode, the computer accesses up to two USB devices connected to the sender unit. When in remote mode, it recognizes up to four USB devices connected to the receiver unit. A front panel switch on the sender controls local and remote modes of operation.

Local and virtual EDID ensures a constant signal sync even when delivering multiple signals up to 2000 meters in distance.
