New KVM Extenders and Fiber Matrix Switches
Jul 12, 2006 3:47 PM
Logical Solutions/Thinklogical, a provider of video extension technology, has expanded its commitment to the visualization industry by announcing its latest extension product and a new switch product line.
Unlike traditional analog fiber extenders and analog matrix switches, Logical Solutions/Thinklogical’s line transmits video and data digitally regardless of source format. Digital transmission has significant advantages over “outdated” analog technology by enhancing the “transparency” of extension and switching systems. The video integrity through the system is never compromised.
Thinklogical KVM extension systems require only two or three multimode fibers to support either DVI, Dual-Link DVI, or RGB video, keyboard, mouse, USB, serial, full duplex stereo audio, DDC, and a stereo graphics port for virtual reality applications. Video and data can be extended up to 3,280 ft.
The new DCS (digital cross-point switch) matrix switching line integrates seamlessly with Thinklogical extenders. The switches have full non-blocking matrix capability for eight to 144 source inputs and eight to 144 fully configured remote graphics consoles. The DSC is “fiber-in” and “fiber-out” for ease of installation and minimal cable congestion. Fully loaded chassis sizes are 32×32, 72×72 and 144×144 ports.
