Matrox Unveils New IP KVM Product Line for InfoComm 2017: Extio 3

 

Matrox® Graphics today announced its new line of IP KVM products, Matrox Extio 3 Series, featuring both quad- (Extio N3408) and dual-video (Extio N3208) models.  

To be featured at the Matrox booth (#1973) at InfoComm 2017, Extio 3 sets a new industry standard by securely extending a single 4Kp60 4:4:4 video signal—or four 1080p60 4:4:4 signals—along with keyboard, mouse, stereo audio and USB 2.0 over standard gigabit Ethernet at unprecedentedly low bit rates.

Extio 3 IP KVM products deliver exceptional remote desktop performance and, when combined with standard GigE network switches, create a cost-effective over-IP extension and switching solution, allowing users to securely and instantly switch to any system on the KVM network. Designed to optimize collaboration, Extio 3 provides a secondary H.264 proxy video stream, compatible with H.264 software and hardware decoders, enabling users to view a selected desktop on mobile devices, record it to a network attached storage or to display it on a video wall.

“Matrox Extio 3's unique design leverages the most widely deployed Ethernet infrastructure to securely remote high performance workstations” said Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics. “The availability of the proxy stream will enable customers to easily move information over the network—beyond the control room—Extio 3 is more than just KVM, it’s a collaboration hub.”

Extio 3 provides the operational flexibility required for use in industrial automation and process control, healthcare, transportation, defense, government, broadcast, and production industries and applications. Configurable as a point-to-point or networked KVM, it allows the centralizing of hardware in climate-controlled server rooms, increasing security, protecting against environmental hazards, and reducing system noise and heat emissions.
