What are KVM Extenders?
KVM extenders are designed to overcome the distance limitations posed by analog and digital interface cables. By selecting a point-to-point extender, or one that operates over an existing IP network, businesses can scale user access to computers from remote locations, ultimately helping to increase productivity, desktop ergonomics and IT security.
With a range of connectivity options, extension distances and support for peripheral devices, Adder’s wide range of KVM extenders have been designed to meet almost all connectivity requirements.
The AdderLink XDIP is a compact, easy to install, fanless HDMI, USB and Audio Extender, Switch or Matrix matrix that runs on a standard IP network.
The ADDERLink XDIP is designed to improve IT scalability for small to medium businesses. Utilizing a standard 1Gb/s IP network, the XDIP enables users to extend and manage critical PCs with ultra-low latency and HD video. An intuitive API delivers remote control of the matrix and allows the XDIP to be integrated into larger systems, controlled by third party software.
- Powerful KVM extender with KVM matrix functionality
- Configurable as a point to point extender or small matrix solution
- A single unit can be programmed as transmitter or receiver
- Remote control via RESTful API or HTTPS web browser
- Support for Power over Ethernet (PoE)
- Local USB and video feed through ports
Flexible and scalable: Each XDIP unit can be configured as a simple extender, distributed KVM switch or for AV distribution. Each receiver can see up to 16 sources and each transmitter can connect to up to 256 receivers.
Configurable units: The XDIP user and computer units are identical and can be configured as a transmitter or receiver. This means the solution can be built to suit the application, and should the application change, units can be re-configured to suit.
High quality video: The XDIP supports video resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz.
Power over Ethernet (PoE): Compatible with most PoE switches, the XDIP can be easily installed without the need for additional power. Many PoE switches offer redundant power options which the XDIP can leverage for enhanced reliability.
Remote control: Users can remotely control their XDIP network via a RESTful API or HTTPS web browser. By managing the receiver end points through an API, users can control the matrix. The XDIP is designed to work with any third party controller via HTTPS.
Extension distance: Extension distance is linked to the IP standard of 100m with a 40% overhead for safety. Longer distances can be achieved by routing through IP infrastructure.
Audio capability: XDIP delivers bi-directional analog audio (16-bit sampling at 48kHz) passed between the local and remote units. Headphones are also supported (16 to 32 Ohms).
Plug and Play: The XDIP is delivered in a zero config. state so it works, without the need for drivers or software, as soon as it is connected. A simple setup wizard guides the user through set up when the device is connected.
