Aten KE-Series Features

  • Effortless over IP Digital Media Extension

    Effortless over IP Digital Media Extension

    Eliminates the distance restrictions of control room management; enables a faster response to mission-critical data center emergencies; all models support unlimited distances via Cat 5e/6 over a LAN, while the KE9952 / KE9950 / KE8952 / KE8950 also support connectivity via a SFP fiber optic transceiver module over an optical Ethernet network.

  • Exceptional Video Quality up to 4K

    Exceptional Video Quality up to 4K

    The Aten KE-series supports resolutions up to 3840x2160 @ 30Hz (KE9952 / KE9950 / KE8952 / KE8950) at 36-bit color depth, and 1920x1200 @ 60Hz (KE6940 / KE6900 series) at 24-bit color depth


  • Intuitive Boundless Switching

    Intuitive Boundless Switching

    The Aten KE-series offers an intuitive way to switch control to another receiver by simply moving your mouse cursor across the screen border and onto the target computer display. Unrestricted Switching Direction allows the mouse cursor to move in any direction to switch the control focus.


  • Powerful Centralized Management

    Powerful Centralized Management

    ATEN's KE Matrix Management Software (CCKM) makes it easy to define connections and manage all KE devices over a network with a new intuitive user-friendly web based GUI; administrators can set three permission types Admin, Super User, and User, to meet user and shared access requirements.

  • All Popular Interfaces Supported

    All Popular Interfaces Supported

    ATEN's KE product range supports interfaces from DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI, to fulfill every demand from any control room environment. Mix-and-match different transmitters & receivers for a truly flexible solution.

  • Secure Data Transmission

    Secure Data Transmission

    The Aten KE KVM over IP Extenders utilizes AES-128 bit encryption to secure all data before it's transmitted over a network and is decrypted on the receiver end to ensure no eves-dropping.


  • Fast Switching

    Fast Switching

    ATEN's unique Fast Switching technology features instant switching, even between different video resolutions, providing immediate viewing of critical information for video surveillance or monitoring applications.

  • Unbeatable Video Wall Versatility

    Unbeatable Video Wall Versatility

    With unprecedented video quality and unmatched resolutions, the native video wall functionality allows users to create multiple video walls with up to 8 x 8 displays in each layout in various configurations, offering outstanding flexibility and scalability without need for a separate video wall processor.


Aten KE-Series Uses

Extender mode (One-to-One)

This is the simplest setup; using a single transmitter to receiver connection that extends a computer's distance from the keyboard, mouse and monitor. One-to-one setups can be directly connected by a Cat 5e/6 cable between two units - up to 100 meters (KE89xx & KE99xx models can also be connected via optical fiber cables for distances up to 10 kilometers).

You can also manage point-to-point connections, set up over a LAN with no distance limitations, by assigning each device an IP address.

Switching Mode (Many-to-One)

Many-to-One: With the KVM over IP Extenders you can configure how to share a computer when multiple users access it, with 4 modes: Exclusive (first user has control - others no access); Occupy (first user has control - others view only - when first is inactive - next user to move mouse takes control); Shared (all users have access and control at the same time); or View Only (no control - users can only view the video display).

* For point-to-multipoint use, the installation requires a network switch with IGMP functionality.

Splitter mode (One-to-Many)

One-to-Many: With the KVM over IP Extenders you can configure how to share a computer when multiple users access it, with 4 modes: Exclusive (first user has control - others no access); Occupy (first user has control - others view only - when first is inactive - next user to move mouse takes control); Shared (all users have access and control at the same time); or View Only (no control - users can only view the video display).

* For point-to-multipoint use, the installation requires a network switch with IGMP functionality.

Matrix mode (Many-to-Many)

Many-to-Many: Delivering the ultimate in flexibility and performance, in this mode the ATEN KVM Over IP Matrix System provides the ability to access, switch, share, and multicast computer resources among multiple KVM consoles across a network. This provides dynamic and flexible extender setups with superior video quality and smooth KVM operations without delays or lags. Utilizing network bandwidth efficiently and intelligently is paramount, particularly with video intensive applications for media post production, live video streams and monitoring control. Multicasting helps optimize network traffic by directing information to the designated receivers without increasing network bandwidth.

* For multipoint-to-multipoint use, the installation requires a network switch with IGMP functionality.

Video Walls & Command Centers

ATEN's CCKM KE Matrix Management Software allows you to create custom video walls. The KVM over IP Matrix System's multicast functionality means it is able to broadcast packets. When the network switch receives the packets, it simultaneously sends them to all of the designated KVM over IP Extenders in the installation for display:
