Matrox fiber-optic KVM extenders provide real-time control while eliminating system background noise and heat in video editing studios

Pixcom uses Matrox Avio KVM extenders.

Matrox Avio F120 KVM extenders enable the zero-compression, zero-latency extension of dual-HD video editing workstations and peripherals at Pixcom.

Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced production company Groupe Pixcom Inc. has successfully installed Matrox Avio F120 fiber-optic KVM extenders, which have been running flawlessly since day one. Pixcom has eliminated system background noise and heat in their video editing studios by centralizing systems in a separate machine room with Avio transmitter/receiver pairs, letting video editors maintain real-time control over high-resolution dual-display desktops and peripherals.

Moving into new offices, Pixcom required new fiber-optic KVM extenders to securely centralize high-performance workstations up to 100 meters from their video editing studios. Pixcom chose Avio over competitors for its comprehensive feature set, including zero-latency 10Gbps transmission over a single fiber-optic cable. Ease of integration, supported distance (10 km or 6.2 mi), 4K-readiness, and a compact, rack-mountable design also factored into Pixcom’s decision.

“By meeting all of our extension needs in a single box connected by a single fiber-optic cable, Avio let us reduce clutter in the workspace and cut down on the wiring required,” said Dominic Gagné, a member of Pixcom’s technical services team. “Avio is a robust technology we can rely on… to the point where we can even forget it’s there!”
