Matrox KVM at ISE 2020: Efficiency-Boosting, Multi-System Control Feature Now Available
Wed 22, 01 2020
Aggregator Mode enables the remote monitoring and control of multiple systems with a single keyboard and mouse
Montreal, Canada – January 21, 2020 – Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announces the availability of 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 mode of operation permits an Extio 3 receiver unit to aggregate multiple video streams coming from multiple 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 will be in action at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) at stand #11-D120, showcasing its benefits for a wide range of control room applications including process control, industrial and automation, military and defense, broadcast, and more
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 simplified KVM installation.
“Control room operators are often required to monitor and access information from multiple computers to complete their daily tasks, and Aggregator Mode helps streamline their workflows by providng seamless control of multiple systems,” said Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox. “This efficiency-boosting functionality eliminates unnecessary distractions so operators can focus completely on the task at hand.”
Aggregator Mode is now available as a free Extio 3 firmware and Matrox Extio Central Manager software upgrade. To request a demo, contact Matrox Graphics
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.
