KVM Extender Applications

USB Extenders can be useful in a variety of situations. In instances where security is a concern a KVM extender can remove the computing device from the end users location. In areas that are not computer friendly, such as industrial or manufacturing sites, the extender allows the computing device to be located in a clean safe environment. KVM extension devices are also valuable in situations where noise from the computing device is unacceptable such as broadcast booths. KVM extenders are also useful in retail and office situations in which the computing device is located in a back room or data center.

Our diverse product offerings of KVM extenders will address any of your needs; wireless KVM extenders will eliminate the need to run cabling but are limited in distance, while CAT5 (copper) extenders will grant you great video resolution, quality and more extension. In addition, our selection of DVI and Fiber extenders will provide longer extension, greater security and the highest resolutions. Networked extenders offer connectivity through a dedicated LAN segment and some models even offer KVM switching between computing devices.
