KVM Extender Product Selector

Choose from our wide selection of KVM Extenders

Whether your application is digital high-definition video, KVM, or matrix peripheral switching, using extenders enables you to remove computer noise and heat from your work area. Additionally, extension enables you to move servers and CPUs to low-dust, climate-controlled equipment rooms without sacrificing video quality, picture resolution, or real-time peripheral switching.

Finally, server maintenance, software updates, and network administration become centralized, and time and cost associated with staff support is reduced. Along with extending VGA or DVI video, these applications extend keyboard and mouse, digital or analog audio, serial, USB HID, and USB 2.0.

This buyer's guide will help you select the right KVM extender for your application. Do you have any questions regarding the products in this guide? Then please contact our free Tech Support.
