Matrox Graphics (www.matrox.com) has announced the Matrox Avio F125, a fiber-optic KVM extender, which separates dual HD video, keyboard, mouse, stereo analog audio and USB 2.0 devices from a workstation.
The Avio F125 features flexible connectivity options. Its transmitter/receiver pair extends two single-link DVI (2x1920x1200) or one dual-link DVI (2560x1600 or 4096x2160) video, and multiple high-speed USB 2.0 compliant devices from the host computer by up to 1,312 feet over multimode cable and 2.5 miles over single-mode cable.
The Avio F125 stands out for its ability to transmit all signals with zero compression and zero latency on a single duplex LC-LC fiber-optic cable, according to Caroline Injoyan, business development manager at Matrox Graphics. Designed for high-performance environments, Avio F125 delivers fluid graphics and video playback making it ideal for broadcast, post production, Pro A/V, industrial process control, oil and gas, 3D design and visualization, and military environments, she adds.
