Put extra distance between your dual VGA monitors, USB-style peripherals, and your CPU - and set up multiscreen workstation monitoring - using the ServSwitch Wizard USB KVM Extender with Dual-Head VGA and Audio.
The extender package includes a local and a remote unit. Simply connect the local module to your PC and the remote module to the peripherals next to the user using two CATx cable runs.
The ServSwitch Wizard USB KVM Extender with Dual-Head VGA and Audio is ideal for high-density applications where you want full use of USB keyboards, mice, and other devices but there simply isn't room for a CPU nearby, or for applications where you want to keep CPUs secured and out of the way.
A built-in 4-port USB hub on the extender's remote unit enables you to attach a complete desktop remotely, including a USB keyboard and mouse, as well as a USB drive, webcam, and any other USB peripheral device you would normally plug into your computer's USB port. The extender kit supports both low- and full-speed USB 2.0 connectivity.
All communications use inexpensive CATx cable, so there's no special cabling needed to extend a USB bus from a PC to peripherals, and no USB configuration is necessary. The PC and its peripherals operate exactly as normal, the only difference being that they are now located far apart.
Extend high-quality video and audio signals
The same CAT5e or CAT6 cable link used for keyboard, mouse, and USB device extensions transmits signals for multiscreen desktops, too. This way, you can set up a remote desktop with two VGA monitors to enhance workflow productivity.
A built-in variable noise filter enables extended distances - up to 1000 feet (300 m) over CAT6 cable - for video signals. This helps overcome issues of increased gain caused by using longer cabling runs.
Multi-pole compensation helps ensure superb video quality at maximum distance over a single cable. From a keyboard at the receiver's end, you can make adjustments for cable type and cable length, and adjust color skew compensation and gain to ensure crystal clear video images.
Plus, for a truly multimedia workstation, the extender supports two-channel, 16-bit audio (sampled at 44.1 kHz). This way, you can enjoy CD-quality sound at extended distances. Just plug in speakers on the remote unit. (It also supports speakers on the audio output port of the local unit, too.)
