    ServSwitch DVI-D USB KVM-over-Fiber Extender


    Quick Facts

  • Extends DVI-D video from a computer or KVM switch to a remote USB keyboard/mouse workstation with a DVI monitor.
  • Supports full HD resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 for connecting a 1080p display.
  • Pure digital extension over fiber optic cable — zero compression technology.
  • Supports EDID, stereo audio, and serial port control.

  • Further Details

  • Separate your computer from your user station but still enjoy perfect DVI-D monitor video quality.
  • Transmits single-link DVI-D pure digital with zero compression technology.
  • HDCP compliant. Can be used to extend video from high-definition HD-DVD or Blu-Ray player.
  • Works with 50/125-µm and 62.5/125-µm multimode fiber cable with duplex SC connectors.
  • High bandwidth enables you to transmit large amounts of information at a very high rate of speed.
  • Through serial control ports, extender units can also be connected to serial DCE/DTE devices.
  • Boasts bidirectional audio. Supports stereo audio for connecting multimedia workstations with speakers and mics.
  • Push-button control for selecting operation mode. Also, when used with a KVM switch, supports hotkey switching commands.
  • Ideal for broadcasting, multimedia studio, and high-end imaging applications, or anywhere you need to extend HD video for a workstation.
  • No software or setting of DIP switches required. Just plug and play.
  • RoHS compliant.


  • Use interference-free, ultra-secure 50/125-µm optical fiber to put a KVM console with a DVI-D monitor up to 2000 meters (6561.6 ft.) away from a backracked CPU—without any compression of the video in the extension.

    The ServSwitch™ DVI-D USB KVM-over-Fiber Extender from Black Box sends both DVI-D and USB keyboard and mouse signals over the same fiber cable, transmitting digital video for zero signal loss.

    In the transmission, the KVM extender optimizes digital display connections for full HD display resolution (1920 x 1080), so you can extend 1080p to a workstation up 1000 meters (3280.8 ft.) away. For 1080i video, it extends DVI-D video farther—up to 2000 meters (6561.6 ft.). It can also be used to extend HDTV content for high-end LCDs and computer monitors supporting widescreen WUXGA (1920 x 1200) and UXGA (1600 x 1200) displays.

    The perfect solution for extending serial data reliably and securely.
    High EMI/RFI resistance makes the ServSwitch DVI-D USB KVM-over-Fiber Extender great for connecting control room monitors, keyboards, and mice to factory floor CPUs or anywhere electronic noise may interfere with communications.

    Because the extender uses fiber for extending computer signals, it's ideal for high-security applications. Fiber connection is immune to electromagnetic interference. Use the KVM extender to transmit sensitive data and real-time, high-resolution monitor video in any mission-critical medical, military, and government imaging application. And, as with all Black Box KVM extension solutions, it enables you to keep your computers and valuable data in a locked, secure room and manage them remotely. Includes both local and remote extender units.
    The ServSwitch DVI-D USB KVM-over-Fiber Extender comes with two units: a console unit and a computer unit. Both have USB input/output for connecting USB keyboards and mice, as well as DVI-D inputs/ouputs for monitor connections.

    Plus, the KVM extender supports dual-user access. Connect a USB keyboard/mouse workstation with a DVI-D display at either end of the fiber optic link.

    Integrates easily into a KVM switch application.
    To switch between and control multiple computer CPUs, connect either extender unit to a KVM switch. The ServSwitch DVI-D USB KVM-over-Fiber Extender supports hotkey control, so using a sequence of keystroke commands, you can select a computer, activate computer scan, and more.

    When the extender is connected to a KVM switch, you can also gain access to the built-in hotkey commands of the attached switch. A "mask hotkey" switch on the extender units masks the master-level KVM extender, so you can configure the slave-level KVM switch as if you're sitting directly in front of the switch itself. This can be a time-saver and reduce the chance of any erroneous hotkey commands.

    Use to extend serial device control signals, too.
    In addition to KVM ports, the extender units have DB9 serial ports for connecting serial terminal and serial devices for human interface device (HID) configurations and instant data transfer.

    Use the KVM extender, for example, in a retail or display application with PoS bar-code scanners, card readers, touch screens, and similar serial-controlled devices. The ServSwitch™ DVI-D USB KVM-over-Fiber Extender gives you a way to transmit control data without baud rate limitation or configuration.
