Raritan a leading provider of intelligent data center management, KVM and rack power distribution solutions today introduced a new IP User Station for the Dominion® KX III digital KVM switch. Together they provide technicians, operators, engineers and IT professionals with an economical IP-based solution for high-performance remote access to IT devices with the industry’s most productive and powerful user interface.
Ideal for the work done in broadcast studios, control rooms and labs, as well as offices and data centers, the KX III User Station solution supports: two 1920 x1080 video sessions at 30 frames per second, sub-second switching between servers, and eight or more simultaneous KVM-over-IP sessions over single or dual monitors. Unlike other high-performance KVM solutions that require a separate network, users can access and control multiple servers and other equipment over the corporate LAN and/or WAN. Moreover, the KX III’s web-browser interface enables authorized users to access connected equipment using their laptop or PC while traveling or for emergency access from home.
“The new IP User Station offers versatility; it can be used to replace or supplement expensive, inflexible broadcast systems or be used as a console in a lab, studio or operations center. It can support the high-performance needs of technicians or operators, as well as BIOS-level access and virtual media for IT and broadcast engineers,” said Richard Dominach, Director of Product Management at Raritan. “Like the KX III the new user station was designed to boost productivity by delivering the best performance, reliability, usability, compatibility and security. Analog (VGA) and digital video formats, including DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort, are all supported.”
The KX III User Station appliance can be conveniently located in the same room or miles away from the KX III switches connected to servers and other equipment. Using economical and scalable Cat5, Ethernet and TCP/IP technologies, any User Station can access any KX III switch throughout the enterprise. The User Station can sit on a desk, be mounted onto a standard 19” rack, or VESA-mounted on the back of a monitor.
