Modern computer & data centres often require large scale monitoring and remote access capabilities across multiple systems. The Lindy KVM Pro series features optional upgrades to help facilitate matrix switching and long distances data transmission in these environments.
If the matrix switching option is implemented by installing an upgrade, up to 24 computers and 24 workplaces can be linked via a gigabit network switch to create a distributed matrix system. The ability to change the connections using hotkeys or OSD is important, as is password protected user administration, grouping of multiple screens into multihead displays, and a sharing mode in which multiple users can access the same computer.
Use of a permanently installed extender system allows instant switching without any time delays, resulting in a seamless switching system with distributed intelligence. Use of appropriate switches also makes it possible mix Cat.6 and fibre optic sets of the KVM Extender Series, for example for distributing the system across several buildings. The ideal approach for monitoring and remote access throughout large corporate facilities.
