New ServSwitch DTX Enables Global KVM Extension Over IP!
PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, November 27, 2006 – Black Box Corporation (NASDAQ: BBOX) announced today the global release of the ServSwitch™ DTX (product code DTX5000). The DTX is a next-generation ServSwitch KVM extender that eliminates the distance limitations of traditional copper or fiber optic KVM extenders. It extends multimedia server or CPU (stereo audio and USB 2.0 peripherals), DVI-I video and keyboard and mouse signals hundreds or even thousands of miles over an IP network to a workstation with a DVI monitor, speakers and a USB or PS/2® keyboard and mouse—or a mix of both.
The ServSwitch DTX provides complete hardware KVM extension—no software is needed. It displays 24-bit, 60-fps color video and supports resolutions up to 1280 x 1024. In addition, it also supports VGA for universal video compatibility, plus it delivers CD-quality sound for robust audio extension. For demanding multimedia applications, just connect the DTX to either Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet—you’ll have all the bandwidth you need!
As a next-generation KVM extender, the ServSwitch DTX enables you to make three types of connections: traditional, point-to-point copper extension up to 100 meters; global extension over IP; and global extension over IP with USB virtual media (VM) support! With USB VM, you can use the four USB ports on the DTX’s receiver unit to connect and access USB drives and other peripherals. If you use a PS/2 keyboard and mouse with the receiver, all four USB ports can be used for USB devices. All USB peripherals will function as if they are attached directly to the CPU—and transfer media data at the maximum speed supported by your network. You can even hot-plug USB devices without any affect on the entire system.
Black Box’s ServSwitch line makes it the industry leader in server management. What’s more, the company has combined its extensive range of server management solutions with the expertise of its Tech Support to create ServSwitch Central™. As a dedicated resource for KVM switches and services, ServSwitch Central offers a FREE 24/7/365 Tech Support hotline, network planning and design, nationwide installation services, post-installation maintenance programs and more.
