ATEN KM0432 Matrix KVM
ATEN introduces a brand new matrix KM0432 KVM switch, designed for IT administrators in large corporations. This switch offers advanced control of servers, yet is flexible enough for various other applications. ATEN KM0432 Matrix KVM allows 4 users to directly control 32 computers simultaneously and independently. A maximum of 2,048 computers can be connected through a combination of daisy chaining and cascading. The RJ-45 CPU connections and Auto Signal Compensation (ASC) allow signals to travel up to 150 meters away and still maintain video resolutions; the need for KVM extenders is eliminated. All 32 ports are placed in a 1U-high case, which saves expensive real estate in an IT environment.  ATEN KM0432 Matrix KVM  allows any type of console to control any type of computer, whether it is USB or PS/2. The users on the master KVM can access any computer, whether it is connected directly or through daisy chain/cascading. Users on local KVMs can access any computer connected to the local KVM, whether it is connected directly or through daisy chain/cascading.  ATEN KM0432 Matrix KVM also has many other great KVM features such as Hot Keys, OSD, 3-level password security, hot pluggability, life firmware upgrade, keyboard and mouse emulation, "Keep Alive" feature, AutoScan, etc. It also supports multiple platforms (PC, Mac, Sun) through the use of CAT5 to PS/2, and CAT5 to USB adapters.
