Modular, no fixed ports. Moves, adds, and changes are quick and easy.
Choose from CATx and single-mode fiber SFP modular card interfaces. Single-mode fiber interfaces will also work over multimode fiber.
Enables mixing of media on inputs/outputs—CATx in and fiber out, or vice versa.
Supports rich, digital audio for a full multimedia experience.
Includes a control card. Manage via KVM, network, or serial console.
Rackmountable 9U-high chassis.
Give multiple users fast, reliable access to high-quality, real-time digital video—plus a whole host of peripherals across the enterprise—with the top-of-the-line DKM FX HD Video and Peripheral Matrix Switch system.
This chassis-based, modular crosspoint switching system enables you and others to switch and extend HD video, audio, and serial data over extremely long distances. Use it in any application where many users have to interface with CPUs and other high-end AV equipment supporting high-quality video. Plus, it works as video matrix switch.
Using non-blocking switch technology, the DKM FX processes and routes DVI single-link resolutions, including Full HD 1080p, with little or no delay of video—even at screens far away from the switching chassis itself.
What’s more, it not only supports DVI-D digital video, but also VGA video and connections to a wide array of peripherals, including USB HID, USB 2.0, RS-232, and IR devices, Wacom® tablets, and even legacy PS/2 keyboards and mice.
It’s especially ideal for enterprise networks and mission-critical control/command rooms, as well as video production or broadcasting applications where HD video is everything. Many users can connect their KVM consoles to various multimedia sources (computer, CPUs, servers, etc.), either locally or in a distant room or office via the switch.
And it’s very flexible. The DKM FX HD Video and Peripheral Matrix Switch enables you to configure HD KVM switching and DVI routing exactly as you require. Mix and match fiber and CATx ports through cards and SFPs plugged into its slots. You’re not limited in any way.
With the switch, you get a controller card, which has USB keyboard/mouse and DVI monitor connectors for local KVM administration; an RJ-45 port for interfacing up with your network and a client machine that has the DKM FX Java tool installed; and a serial port for control via an external RS-232 device. Because the card has a built-in CPU, you can control all functions from any console without the need for an external CPU or media control.
OS platform independent, the switch and its controller card can be accessed by Windows®, Linux®, and/or Mac OS® users.
Versatile switching capabilities.
Switching can be performed using an on-screen display (OSD), keyboard commands, or through a local serial console connection at the rack. You can also switch from a remote site via a ServSwitch DKM Extender. Or control it via a Creston® or AMX® keypad controller plugged into the extender. No matter the route, KVM switching can be shared with any other KVM user, connected directly or connected remotely through a ServSwitch DKM Extender.
Switches within milliseconds.
Users can switch seamlessly and almost instantaneously from DVI to KVM video on the DKM FX HD Video and Peripheral Matrix Switch. It takes just milliseconds for this to happen (similar IP-based types of solutions can take as long as 15 seconds to perform this action).
Modular in design, the DKM FX enables you to change peripheral and CPU connections on the fly and ensure zero downtime. Add or remove cards and SFPs in the slots and reroute inputs and outputs while the DKM FX system’s up and running.
Designed for easy expansion.
Add connections and change inputs/outputs as your enterprise needs evolve. When a department purchases new hardware, just slide a new interface card into the chassis. You can also cascade multiple switch chassis if you exceed the number of available ports.
Signal repeater capabilities are built in.
From its ports, the switch supports device-to-device single-mode fiber links up to 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) and CATx links up to 460 feet (140.2 m)*. These links can be to KVM users, DVI sources, servers, and/or various peripherals. However, the switch also works with DKM and DKM FX extenders for even longer links. Used midway between an extender transmitter and extender receiver, the switch works as a repeater, essentially doubling your distance—up to 40 kilometers (24.8 mi.) over fiber and 920 feet (282.8 m) over CATx*. You can even configure CATx on an input for output on fiber, or vice versa.
