Extender for VGA, USB, RS-232, IR, and 2-way audio over a Local Area Network
The VGA KVM over IP extends VGA, USB, 2-way analog audio, RS-232, and IR, over a Gigabit Local Area Network. Resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) are supported. The Sender and Receiver units can be automatically or manually configured to unique IP addresses to allow the connection of multiple Senders and Receivers to the same network. Multiple Receiver units can simultaneously connect to any Sender unit within the network to create a virtual crosspoint matrix of up to 16 Senders and multiple Receivers. Each Receiver unit has a built in Ethernet switch and two additional RJ-45 Ethernet ports to allow for the connection of computers and other IP-enabled devices. USB 2.0 data rates up to 480 Mbps are supported in addition to backward-compatibility with USB 1.1. Each Receiver unit allows the connection of two USB devices, providing access to keyboard, mouse, printers, and scanners. Output analog audio capability allows audio to be transported between the Sender and the Receiver units. Built-in mic pre-amp on the Receiver unit enables microphone extension. IR commands sent from the Receiver side can affect sources connected to the Sender. RS-232 serial control can also be extended between each Sender and the Receivers. Built in web server interface makes set up and configuration simple and intuitive. The VGA KVM over IP is perfect for large scale remote workstation access, and for digital signage applications.
How It Works
If you are connecting multiple Sender units, use the 16-position selector to assign a unique numerical ID to each Sender unit. Use the included VGA cable to connect a computer or other VGA source to the Sender's VGA input. Use the included USB and RS-232 cables to connect your computer's USB and RS-232 interfaces to the Sender unit. Connect audio Line In and audio Line Out as needed to the Sender. Connect a Gefen EXT-IR-EMIT IR emitter to the Sender and attach it to the IR sensor lens of the source. Connect the VGA output of the Receiver to your Hi-Def display. Connect your USB devices, RS-232 devices, microphone, and headphones or amplified speakers to the Receiver unit. If the Receiver is not installed in the line-of-sight of the end-user, and IR commands will need to be sent to the source, connect an EXT-RMT-EXTIRC or EXT-RMT-EXTIRN extender module to the Receiver. Connect the Sender and Receiver units to each other directly or through a Gigabit Ethernet switch, using CAT-5e or better cables. Each cable run can be up to 330 feet (100 meters) in length. If the Sender is connected to your LAN, you can use the two additional RJ-45 ports on the Receiver to connect computers and other IP enabled devices. Connect the included 5V power supplies to the Sender and Receiver units and to available electrical outlets. Power on all associated equipment. Use the Mode button on the Sender to optimize the picture for sharper still images or smoother videomotion. Press the Switch button on the Receiver to toggle between the different Senders connected to the network.
Note: A Gigabit LAN with 8k jumbo frame support is required. A dedicated LAN is not required, but highly recommended.
