Matrox Introduces KVM Control Over Internet

Extio 3 IP KVMs operate over internet and enable remote users to securely access powerful workstations and specialized equipment.

Matrox KVM-over-internet support allows organizations to expand work-from-home remote programs by enabling off-site employees with secure access to their powerful workstations and specialized equipment. Featuring 4K and multi-monitor KVM extension and switching support with secure network connectivity, users can now connect to and control, share, and manage systems and applications as they would on-premises for an optimized remote working experience.

Claimed as the first 4Kp60 IP KVM to support LAN, WAN, and internet over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network, Extio provides 4Kp60 and quad 1080p60 4:4:4 video, audio, and USB 2.0 signal extension. The tech’s Aggregator Mode feature further streamlines remote workflows by providing control of multiple systems. Users can simultaneously view, control, and switch between multiple systems from a single 4K display or multi-monitor setup, using only a single keyboard and mouse set.

Extio 3 integrates security features—such as IPSec VPN, multi-factor authentication, and AES 128-bit hardware encryption.

“We are very excited to bring another level of flexibility with our Extio 3 product line, as organizations can now standardize on one KVM-over-IP product to control their systems over LAN, WAN, and internet,” said Caroline Injoyan, business development manager at Matrox Video. “Extio 3 allows users to take advantage of their workstations or specialized equipment from a distance, and our integrated VPN client gives them a secure and private connection over internet.”

Extio over internet will be available in March 2021 as a free Extio 3 firmware and Extio Central Manager software upgrade.
