Send HDMI over a LAN Using Gefen's Newest IP-Based Solution(July 25, 2014)
Gefen?s HD KVM over IP sends 1080p high definition content over a LAN with the option to integrate various video formats and create a virtual, cross-point matrix. The sender/receiver system allows the remote control of computers from any workstation on the LAN when using a Gigabit Ethernet switch. Users access content using a keyboard, video display and mouse (KVM). 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.
One of the best features of this new solution is its ability to support additional sender and receiver units on the same LAN. 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. The HD KVM over IP can also be combined on the same LAN with Gefen?s DVI and VGA KVM over IP extenders. These integrated systems support both analog and digital video in a virtual matrix that sends data to any workstation regardless of the video format. Resolutions are supported up to 1920x1200 at 60 FPS.
