Riedel Adds KVM to MediorNet Capabilities

Riedel Communications has introduced MediorNet KVM, a plug-and-play solution for MediorNet users interested in remoting PCs through their MediorNet networks.

Riedel said MediorNet KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) comprises two compact plug-and-play boxes that provide the lossless transmission of DVI video signals up to full 1080P along with transparent USB 2.0 and stereo analog audio.

The host-side box features a DVI-I input, loop DVI-I output, USB-B input and 3.5mm jacks for audio I/O. The remote-side box has a DVI-I output, four USB-A outputs and analog audio I/O. The KVM extenders utilize the MediorNet Ethernet tunnel capabilities and access the system via Ethernet ports available on the MediorNet frames.

"Over the years we have had many requests for the ability to easily remote KVM data through the MediorNet," said Lars Höhmann, product manager at Riedel Communications. "MediorNet KVM provides a low-cost solution and a critical value-add for clients looking to include PCs in their MediorNet systems without adding complexity."

Use cases for the MediorNet KVM include accessing a remote PC via Ethernet and the ability to move PCs away from desktops into properly air-conditioned areas. Switching can be accomplished by switching Ethernet tunnels via MediorWorks, the MediorNet Control App or third-party control.

MediorNet KVM will begin shipping this fall.
