DKM Matrix SwitchDKM FX

The perfect high-performance, modular enterprise routing system for complete in-band signal distribution of high-definition video, audio, and peripherals over CATx or single-mode fiber supporting up to 288 I/O ports in a single frame. Designed with performance and flexibility in mind, the DKM FX offers tremendous scalability.

DKM FX Compact SwitchDKM FX Compact

The DKM FXC KVM Compact Matrix Switch is specifically designed for smaller to mid-sized KVM deployments using the same technology found in the enterprise-level DKM FX Matrix Switching system. Get the same instantaneous, reliable access to real-time digital HD video, plus a whole host of peripherals in a 1U or 2U frame for smaller installations. DKM FXC can be used with all DKM FX extender modules creating a wide range of high performance features and connections.  Use it in any application where users have to access many CPUs and other high-end AV devices.

DKM Modular ExtendersDKM Extenders

With KVM extenders, users can re-locate computers or CPUs servers at longer distances than standard interconnect cables allow. They also double as end point transmitters and receivers for communications to the matrix. Compact models are small and offer a space-saving footprint in standard fixed configurations. Modular varieties are designed around a modular concept enabling you to build an extender system to fit your specific need or application. Modular enclosure frames are available in 2-, 4-, 6-, and 21-slot units.
Send video, USB and serial signals up to 10 meters over CATx, 1000 meters over multimode fiber, or up to 10 kilometers over single-mode fiber. The extenders can be used in standalone, point-to-point applications, or as part of your DKM system.

Wireless Ethernet Extenders (LWE120 Series) 
This short video examines three ways to use Wireless Ethernet Extenders: in point-to-point enterprise, educational, and campus networks; in point-to-multipoint networks for security and surveillance, SCADA, and industrial monitoring networks; and for networking in rural environments where there is no cable or DSL connectivity.
Wireless Ethernet Extenders (LWE200 Series) 
One of the easiest ways to extend your Ethernet network across campus or across town is with Wireless Ethernet Extenders. Use these extenders to set up high-powered, long-distance line-of-sight, point-to-point connections up to 15 miles (24 km) apart.
