The new HDN-4Plus from SmartAVI is the first HDCP compliant KVM solution on the market that manages four computers equipped with 4K Ultra HD video cards and USB 2.0 ports. This is the first KVM switch on the market that features support for 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160 @30Hz) workstations. This aggressively-priced KVM console can be controlled via keyboard hot keys, RS-232 commands and the device’s front panel. Users can easily monitor all the connected computers with the SmartView Picture-in-Picture technology. As PCs continue to move toward 4K Ultra HD, the HDN-4Plus is a critical PC management device for a wide variety of applications. This helpful technology allows users to keep tabs on the other connected workstations without constantly needing to switch back and forth.
The USB emulation technology utilized by HDN-4Plus enables immediate hot key source switching through a remote USB keyboard and mouse. HDN-4Plus is HDMI 1.4 and HDCP compliant, which supports 4K Ultra HD resolutions and 12-bit deep color at 1080p @60Hz. RS-232 control and front panel switching are supported. The switch also transmits digital audio, including a separate S/PDIF digital audio output for increased flexibility.
The HDN-4Plus has a broad range of applications, but the main function is to centralize the access of up to four computers that support Ultra HD displays in a single workstation. Not only does it function as a KVM console, but it also supports USB 2.0 functionality. This allows users to access nearly USB device, including those not supported by other KVM switches. The HDN-4Plus is the ideal solution for medical, industrial, studio and defense applications, where it is not practical or safe to have multiple CPUs in the vicinity of the workstation.
PCs are increasingly equipped with 4K Ultra HD video cards. Managing 4K content isn’t just the future of PC and network management, it’s the technology of today. With four times the resolution of 1080p, there’s nothing on the market that compares to 4K. The HDN-4Plus is equipped with HDMI ports that can handle 4K Ultra HD video content, as well as 1080p and 3D video. No matter what kind of HD content a user needs to manage at their workstation, the HDN-4Plus can handle it.
SOURCE SWITCHING MADE EASY
The HDN-4Plus provides a simplified management approach for four Ultra HD equipped computers with HDMI and USB 2.0 outputs. This dynamic KVM console can be controlled keyboard hot keys or RS-232 commands, as well as directly through the console’s easy-to-read front panel.
EDID LEARNING & PROGRAMMING
The HDN-4Plus features plug-and-play EDID, making the switch easy to implement in virtually any scenario. As soon as a user plugs in a monitor, the switch automatically learns and copies the EDID to all of the ports. The plug-and-play EDID helps make switching hassle free and simple.
FULL USB KEYBOARD AND MOUSE EMULATION
The USB keyboard and mouse emulation utilized by HDN-4Plus provides quick source switching via keyboard hot keys. HDN-4Plus simulates the presence of a keyboard and mouse for every attached computer through a USB cable. This is essential as it simulates the existence of the keyboard and mouse to all the computers in order to switch without interruptions.
