Black Box KVM Matrix Supports 4K Video

The DKM KVM switch and extender now supports 4K, 2160P60 transmissions over a single fibre cable. This extends the application of the KVM system to UHD applications. The modular nature of the DKM allows existing systems to be upgraded to new video formats by addition of the appropriate new cards.

The DKM KVM matrix from Black Box provides flexible, almost instantaneous switching with digital resolutions of up to 4K (at 60 fps). The latest module supports 4K monitors via the DisplayPort interface.

It is possible to connect users and with computers and servers over distances of up to 10 km. In addition, redundant, hot-swappable power supplies ensure excellent availability, lending the matrix to applications such as live broadcasts.
