The USB-powered, small form factor DVI transmitter and DisplayPort transmitter are reportedly suited for server rooms and outside broadcasting trucks where rack space is limited and expensive.
Black Box has announced the addition of two IP-based Zero U KVM Transmitters to the Agility High-Performance KVM product family. The USB-powered, small form factor DVI transmitter and DisplayPort transmitter [110mm (L) x 55mm (W) x 25mm (D)] are reportedly suited for server rooms and outside broadcasting trucks where rack space is limited and expensive.
Since rack space is increasingly becoming a critical cost factor for our customers from industries such as broadcast, public safety and air traffic management, weve been anticipating their demand for KVM transmitters that help to overcome that challenge, said Josh Whitney, Senior Vice President – Technology Product Solutions business at Black Box. These small, IP-based transmitters extend USB and multiple video resolutions up to HD over a Gigabit Ethernet network, and enable simple plug-and-play connectivity for servers and users.
The Zero U KVM Transmitters support video resolutions up to 1920×1200 @ 60 Hz from a DVI or DisplayPort interface and full-speed USB 2.0 connectivity supporting HID devices as well as graphic tablets, touch screens and bi-directional USB audio. Because they transmit 1:1 pixel-perfect video, they are perfectly suitable for even the most demanding graphical applications, the release stated.
These new Zero U Transmitters will not only help companies save money for rack space and power consumption, they will also make scaling of new or existing Agility KVM systems much easier. IT system planners can now build out their connectivity infrastructure as they grow, by simply adding another small, USB-powered transmitter device per server, added Whitney.
