Control and Manage Remote Computers with a KVM Extender
Keyboard Video Mouse (KVM) Extenders allow users to extend their keyboard, video, and mouse signals to remote locations. They are commonly used in server rooms, data centers, and other IT settings where multiple computers need to be managed remotely from a single console. KVM Extenders offer a cost-effective and convenient way to manage systems without moving between them physically.
Types of KVM Extenders
Several types of KVM Extenders are available, including wired and wireless models. Wired KVM Extenders use a physical cable to connect the local and remote units, while wireless models use radio waves to transmit signals. The choice of KVM Extender will depend on the user's specific needs, including the distance between the local and remote units, the number of computers to be managed, and the available budget.
Benefits of KVM Extenders
KVM Extenders have several benefits that make them popular among IT professionals and network engineers.
- They offer the flexibility to manage several computers or servers from a single location, saving time and increasing productivity.
- They reduce clutter and cable management issues by allowing users to keep their computers in a centralized location.
- They help extend the life of computers by reducing wear and tear caused by physical movement and handling.
KVM Extender Features
When choosing the best KVM Extender for your application, several factors must be considered. These include the range of the device, the video quality supported, and the compatibility with different operating systems. Extenders support standard video interfaces like DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, VGA, and USB and broadcast these signals over Ethernet or fiber cables from a few hundred feet to kilometers. An extender kit comes with two devices, a receiver and transmitter, one located at the remote computer and the other at the console. Kits support from one to several computers.
The ACS4201A-R2, for example, supports computers with dual video ports to connect up to two monitors to the computer on the transmitting end of the link and two DVI-D monitors at the receiving KVM console. Now you can view two applications on each monitor, eliminating tedious switching between them. Or you can expand many small windows across both monitors to provide more workspace.
KVM Extenders are essential devices for IT administrators managing servers and computers remotely. Whether you need a wired or wireless model, many options are available to suit your needs. So don't wait any longer to streamline your network management – contact Westward Sales today and take the first step towards greater efficiency and productivity!
