What's Trending in the
World of KVM?
Contributing Editor David Kirk rounds
up the latest developments in KVM
(Keyboard, Video and Mouse) technology...

T

he transition from panel-perproduct to computer-based device
control via Keyboard, Video-display
and Mouse dates back to the earliest
generation IBM PCs, introduced in 1981.
The mouse itself - as a pointing device
rather than a supplementary cat food
- was created nearly 20 years earlier
by Douglas Engelbart at the Stanford
Research Institute in Menlo Park,
California. It opened the floodgates
to the graphical user interfaces which
control many aspects of modern life.
Touch screens came later, in the
1990s, accelerated in popularity by the
introduction of the Apple iPad in 2010.
KVM switches are designed to make
the entire business of computer-based
device control easier than ever. This
short summary looks at what's new in
KVM products.
Adder Technology has added new
features to its ADDERLink™ INFINITY
4000 series including support for
HDR10 video standards and the
introduction of touch control. Users
working with 5K IP KVM can create a
matrix of up to 16 endpoints without
the need for an ADDERLink INFINITY
Management (AIM) server. Also
introduced are two new dongle-style
KVM transmitters that bring HDMI
and Display-Port connectivity to
Adder's ZeroU series. These offer
video resolutions of up to 2560 x
1600, two-channel HDMI audio and
USB 2.0 compatibility. " Our customers
are constantly juggling how to
maximize rack space and IT
efficiency, while adapting their
IT infrastructure to support
their
evolving
technology
needs, " comments Adder's Senior
Product Manager, John Halksworth.
" As KVM often lies at the heart of our
customers' IT function, it is important

that we continue to innovate to meet
these changing demands, remove
connectivity pain points and facilitate
growth. These new additions to our
ZeroU range enable our customers to
embrace the flexibility the need to use
any connectivity type that suits their
application - both now and into the
future. "
Apantac offers various KVM over IP
products with features such as VGA,
DVI, HDMI input/output support,
resolutions up to 4K/30, power-overEthernet, single or dual transmit or
receive in a single module, and IP
transport over copper or fibre. Users
can extend and/or switch video,
keyboard and mouse functions, USB
2.0, embedded and analogue audio,
RS-232. The receivers can scale
incoming video up or down and allows
the console monitor always to see the
same resolution. The receiver scalers
(one monitor per receiver) also allow
users to feed video walls of up to 8 x
8 displays. Up to four computers can
be accommodated. USB 2.0 devices
such as touch screens, tablets or USB
drives are also supported. Each Tx and
Rx module is autonomous and has a
configuration web page so no extra
server is required to run a matrix. " We
also offer a KVM over IP transmitter

The
ADDERLink
ALIF101T

Adder's Infinity 4000

IHSE's Draco Tera Flex matrix switch

card for the openGear platform as
an alternative to using standalone
transmission boxes for each computer
source in a technical operations
room, " adds Apantac's President,
Thomas Tang. " Up to ten OG-KVM-IPTx cards can be mounted in a single
openGear chassis with redundant
power supplies. "
Black Box's new Secure range
of KVM switches are designed to
achieve security against potential
data leakage and hacking. Data-path
isolation is provided between systems
and networks to reduce the risk of
hardware tampering and safeguard
the network from accidental transfer,
unauthorized access, or compromise
of critical data. " Building on our
wide range of NIAP 3.0 certified
Secure KVM switches, we will
release new NIAP 4.0 certified
devices that address the latest
security profiles while providing
industry-first KVM switch
functionality and the
very latest in flexible
video
connectivity, "
says Black Box Product
Manager David Isola.
Like earlier-generation Black Box
Secure KVM switches, the NIAP 4.0
certified products will offer filters,
data detection and data protection
features.
IHSE's new Draco Tera Flex
matrix switch is designed to
deliver enhanced performance
and flexibility in a more compact
design and at lower cost than
its
predecessors. It includes
features from the Draco
Tera Enterprise series
of switches - SNMPv3,
LDAPS, multilingual onscreen display, encrypted
communi-cation
for
maximum security and
fast booting. Tera Flex
devices can now be

interconnected via a de-centralised
matrix grid. Three housing variants are
available (1, 2 and 4 U) with between
16 and 160 ports. All ports can be
used flexibly as inputs or outputs.
An integrated power supply and
redundant network connection are
standard. Tera Flex is fully compatible
with all Draco extenders and Tera KVM
switches.
kvm-tec's KVM System 4Future is a
1920 x 1080 pixel resolution HD and
4KExtender which can be combined
in one matrix with 2,000 or more
crosspoints, including a backup
network. The company's Real Remote
system and Gateway2go service offer
access to virtual machines as well as
remote work-places.

kvm-tec's Media4Kconnect

Newest feature for the kvm-tec
media4Kconnect DP 1.2 is 5K super
ultrawide resolution 5120 x 1440 by
60 Hz support. The super ultrawide
resolution works with the compressed
and uncompressed versions of
media4Kconnect. Specified latency
time is less than 2 ms even at 5K
resolution.
