Black Box extends the “DCX” KVM Matrix Switch Series

The 10-port DCX1000, model is available with a small but equally powerful digital cross rail. The additional device provides a quick, safe and cost-effective switching of HD videos, audio and USB signals and transmits all video content without any compression or delay.

Using the Server Access Module (SAM) for the connection between the Black Box switch and the target computers results in quick, straightforward switching between different servers. The new version in particular is especially suitable for media in medium-sized businesses.

With 10 freely configurable CATx inputs and outputs, the compact device enables a connection between multiple users and computers over distances of up to 60 metres. This means that control is not carried out via text-based on-screen menus, but via a unique graphic user interface with small, automatically updated preview images. The system can also be configured simply and safely using a WebUI compatible with tablets and mobile devices, while the interface gives the administrator the ability to define settings and control all device connections from a central point.

“Numerous discussions with our customers from these and other sectors, including the manufacturing industry and the transport sector, have shown us that we have a need for flexible devices with fewer ports, but with the same performance and functional scope. This means that in many scenarios, the redundant power supply is a decisive criterion even for smaller installations, which is guaranteed for DCX1000 at all times”
— Hans-Peter Kuhnert, EMEA Sales Vice President at Black Box
