Matrox Avio F120 Fiber-Optic KVM Extender

The Matrox Avio F120 KVM extender transmits uncompressed dual-DVI or 4K video by up to 2000 m (6562 ft) over a single fiber-optic cable.

Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) August 30, 2012

Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced the availability of the Matrox® Avio™ F120 fiber-optic KVM extender for the latency-free operation of a remote desktop at resolutions up to 4K. Designed for graphics and video-intensive applications such as broadcast and post-production, the Avio F120 transmitter/receiver set extends two single-link DVI (2x1920x1200) or one dual-link DVI (2560x1600 or 4096x2160) video and USB HID peripherals from the host system by up to 2000 m (6562 ft). The Avio F120’s uncompressed transmission delivers exceptional graphics and video playback performance, with the computer centrally stored in a machine room via a single duplex LC-LC fiber-optic cable—critical requirements in industrial process control, oil and gas, 3D design and visualization, and military environments.

The Avio F120’s support for 4K resolution content additionally provides a future-proof platform for professionals working with the industry’s next-generation video resolution standard. Users benefit from the extension of a dual-link DVI, 4K display running at 30Hz, with the transmitter unit able to clone and share the remote desktop on a local 4K projector.

"The Matrox Avio F120 offers the perfect marriage between performance and ease of deployment, resulting in a highly sought-after solution for all graphics-intensive environments," said Caroline Injoyan, Business Development Manager at Matrox Graphics, Inc. "Remote operators enjoy the same user experience as at the workstation, while a single fiber-optic conveniently satisfies today’s most advanced distance, security, safety, and installation needs.”

Matrox will be showcasing the Matrox Avio F120 KVM extender at IBC 2012 at stand 7.B29, from September 7-11, 2012.
