Apantac Announces Modular KVM Over IP Solution for A/V Market

Apantac is bringing broadcast quality to the ProAV market with its new KVM over IP solution (OG-KVM-IP-Tx) for the modular openGear platform. 

Apantac called it the most modular and scalable KVM over IP product available on the market today. Up to 20 OG-KVM-IP-Tx boards can fit into a single 2RU frame with built-in redundant power supplies and network management.

Since the new OG-KVM-IP-Tx is based on the openGear standard, system integrators can mix and match different cards from multiple manufactures in a single frame, depending on their application and needs.

The OG-KVM-IP-Tx is based on Gigabit Ethernet technology. The KVM over IP transmitter passes and extends video, keyboard, mouse, USB 2.0, RS-232, IR and audio.

When combined with the Apantac KVM over IP receiver and an off-the-shelf Gigabit Ethernet switch that supports IGMP and Jumbo frame, Apantac’s product is a modular, scalable, expandable KVM switch to allow multiple users to have access to multiple computers.

The OG-KVM-IP-Tx supports both copper and fiber outputs. The fiber option expands the extension distances, making it an ideal option for applications such as remote production.
