Instantaneous Video Switching
Instant, delay-free switching between multiple connected source computers for efficient multiuser access.
Basic matrix switching setup, connecting multiple user stations and source computers through a DKM matrix switch and DKM extenders.
Integrating DKM with Boxilla and Emerald to gain access to an IP-based KVM system and virtual machines.
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 576 I/O ports in a single frame. Designed with performance and flexibility in mind, the DKM FX offers tremendous scalability.
Specifically designed for smaller to mid-sized KVM deployments. 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.
Relocate computers and access them at longer distances than standard interconnect cables allow. Compact extenders are small and offer a space-saving footprint in standard fixed configurations. Modular extenders enable you to build a system to fit your specific need or application. Modular enclosure frames are available in 2-, 4-, 6-, and 21-slot units. The extenders can be used in standalone, point-to-point applications, or as part of your DKM system.
Specifically designed for smaller to mid-sized KVM deployments up to 160 endpoints, these compact switches come in sizes of 1, 2, and 4 RU. They support modern applications with a mix of HD and 4K video, USB, audio, and serial extension and switching in a very economical way.
Modular DKM Extenders provide the widest range of possible interface combinations, which makes it easy to customize the signal extension for your specific application.View Configurator

As part of the move to a new building, a police department based in the north of Europe planned to overhaul their command and control room equipment. Their existing control room used legacy analog technology and was a mix of KVM point-to-point extensions (VGA-PS2 and VGA-USB) and small desktop KVM switches to give single-user access to one or two remote systems.Read Case Study

A public television station in Southern Germany was planning the construction of its broadcasting center. The station wanted to expand existing capacity by replacing old hardware. Servers and KVM systems were to be upgraded to DVI video and USB interfaces for extension and switching.Read Case Study
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an advanced method to detect pathological changes in the organs inside the body. It uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create detailed high-quality images of individual organs, joints and tissues. MRI scanners provide different view angles and, in certain cases, can present much better location, extent and cause of disease compared to conventional methods like X-rays or ultrasound.Read Case Study
KVM systems have become critical to sophisticated control room operations dealing with a variety of critical sources, and diagnostic laboratories and their control rooms are no exception. As an increasing number of facilities take advantage of new technology to connect different departments and to enable greater efficiency, KVM technology is proving to be a valuable component of modernization projects.Read Case Study

When flying an airplane, safety is of the utmost importance and the value of accurate testing cannot be overestimated. In 2012, an aerospace company needed to set up a test bench, which is a platform designed to measure and fine-tune a product's performance and safety in a secure development environment. The test bench would be used to check the safety of aircraft before flying.
The technical support staff at a large German airport operations center wanted to avoid heat and noise in a central control room while efficiently monitoring access control, security camera surveillance, and general airport security. They enlisted Black Box, and we implemented a highly reliable, 24/7 DKM system that is primed for expansion when the need arises. Operators now enjoy a quiet, cool, secure work area that compels them to work productively.Read Case Study
