Matrox Introduces Aggregator Mode: A New Multi-System Control with Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM Extenders
Wed 15, 05 2019
The efficiency-boosting mode of operation enables users to simultaneously operate multiple systems from a remote multi-display station with a single keyboard and mouse
MONTREAL — 14 May 2019 — Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announces Aggregator Mode, a cutting-edge, multi-system control feature available with Matrox Extio™ 3 high-performance IP KVM extenders. Taking Extio 3 IP extension and switching capabilities to a new level, this new mode of operation permits an Extio 3 receiver unit to aggregate multiple video streams coming from different Extio 3 transmitter units. Multiple computer desktops can then be viewed and controlled simultaneously from an Extio 3 receiver unit—with a single keyboard and mouse. Moving the mouse across a multi-screen desktop of up to four displays shifts control instantly from one computer to the next, providing users with unprecedented operational efficiency. Aggregator Mode is ideal for a wide range of applications including process control, industrial and automation, military and defense, healthcare, broadcast and post-production, and more.
Aggregator Mode will be revealed for the first time at InfoComm 2019, in booth 3055.
Enhanced KVM-over-IP user operations
Aggregator Mode streamlines user operations by providing a unified view of information coming from different computer systems. Users have the flexibility to define which computer desktop gets mapped to which screen attached to the Extio 3 receiver unit—they can select the video sources from the Extio on-screen-display (OSD), and then create and save layouts through its easy-to-use, drag-and-drop interface.
Extio 3’s Aggregator Mode supports computers with multiple video outputs, including independent or stretched desktop mode, while remote user-station setups can be arranged in various configurations such as 4×1, 3×1, 2×1 or 2×2. Guest connections are also available for collaborative environments, where different users can connect to the same source system simultaneously, with or without USB control.
Aggregator Mode is easy to deploy as it is built into Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM extenders, minimizing equipment cost and maintenance. It also does not require any additional software to be installed on the source computer system, ensuring that all system certifications remain intact for a truly seamless and simplified KVM installation.
“Matrox Extio 3 continues to set the standard for IP KVM extension and switching,” says Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “In addition to providing industry-leading 4Kp60 and quad 1080p60 4:4:4 performance at unprecedentedly low bitrates, Aggregator Mode provides users with the most efficient workspace. This is essential in 24/7 environments for example, where operators can now pull and view critical information from multiple system data points to make timely, well-informed decisions. We encourage you to stop by at InfoComm 2019 to witness this first-hand.”

Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM extenders
Redefining IP KVM extension technology, Matrox Extio 3 Series cards and appliances are capable of providing 4Kp60 4:4:4 or quad 1080p60 4:4:4, desktop-quality video at 5% of the bandwidth required by most other products available in the market today. With exceptional remote performance, smooth video playback, and pristine image quality, Extio 3 Series features the best-in-class resolution support required of professional applications—a DisplayPort 1.2 connector on Extio 3 N3408 IP KVM extenders ensure a maximum resolution of 3840×2160 at 60Hz in true color. Extio 3 Series also provides flexible configuration options, supporting copper or fiber-optic cabling in point-to-point or networked KVM operations. Extio 3 readily works with standard commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) network switches that significantly diminishes the total cost of ownership to deliver a scalable, secure, and cost-effective KVM matrix switching solution over IP.
