FREE Shipping on orders over $100

As workplaces face restructuring and decentralization is inevitably enforced, control room operations are being challenged to pivot effectively throughout these safety protocols in the new normal. Despite manpower shortages, managing escalations with secure, precise, and timely data from real-time monitoring and dynamic collaboration has become measurably more mission-critical than ever.

The KX9970FT is a high-performance KVM over IP transmitter that allows connection to a DisplayPort computer and enables secure, remote, and uninterrupted access to the computer from a 5K DisplayPort KVM console connected to a KX9970FR receiver over an Intranet or a dedicated LAN. With the receiver console installed at a separate location from the transmitter within a standard IP network, mission-critical control room operations become more ergonomic, user-centered, and task-oriented, while remaining separate from any adverse environmental interference.

The KX9970F expands on previous models with support for up to 10 Gbps optic fiber network connection, transcendent 5K audiovisual performance, speedy peripheral data sharing, and many other new features. This future-proof KVM over IP Matrix System solution, incorporating flexible extender connections, visual collaboration, and system control, aims to streamline control room workflows to jump start operators' productivity with KVM over IP agility.

Native DisplayPort Signal Processing with 12-bit Deep Colors

The essence of information visualization is in presenting the vividness of image coloring (ex. broadcast post production, meteorological analysis, etc). Powered by native DisplayPort signal processing with 8/10/12-bit color depth, the KX9970 delivers stunning visualization with a wider color spectrum comprising Adobe RGB / sRBG / YCbCr / YUV color spaces, facilitating lossless video compression over real-time KVM over IP data transmission.

Pixel-Perfect 5K Audiovisual Performance

The KX9970F revamps control room desktop operations with optimum image quality of 5K@60 Hz@4:4:4. Aided by the graphics card's dithering effect, the KX9970F brings a wider array of luminosity with smoother image rendering, providing an impactful user experience to considerably uplift control room productivity.

Spectacular Video FPS to Facilitate eSports Broadcasting

With eSports booming and beginning to rival traditional sports leagues in viewership, it's more important than ever to broadcast impeccable coverage of global gaming events and tournament where every tiny detail is crucial to viewers. The KX9970F's support for 1920 x 1080@240Hz (CVT-RB) / 2560 x 1440 @144 Hz allows broadcasting producers to seamlessly switch live between on-scene players and gaming feeds without experiencing any impactful lag or interruption while the video is being streamed.

Enhanced Isochronous USB Transmission

In addition to peripheral sharing (such as cameras, microphones, speakers, and more), the USB peripheral ports are capable of isochronous transfer communication to facilitate USB data transmission at a higher rate.

Fail-Safe System with Network/Power Redundancy

The KX9970F provides network/power redundancy that reinforces system reliability by maintaining uninterrupted operations and seamless power failover during any contingency. The KX9970F extenders are equipped with two SFP+ modules to allow fiber network connections, ensuring real-time data transmission and robust system uptime.

Panel Array™ Mode to Maximize Remote Console Efficiency

In tandem with CCKM (KVM over IP Matrix Manager), the operator at each remote console connected to a KX9970F receiver can benefit from ATEN's Panel Array™ mode that enables simultaneous view of video sources from multiple transmitters in 2x2 up to 6x6 multiview layout on one screen.

Effortless KVM over IP Extension

The KX9970F guarantees secure, extendable, and zero latency KVM over IP data transmission with no distance constraint to expedite real-time situational awareness for control room management. Extended data is bolstered with AES 256-bit encryption before transmission over the network and decrypted at the receiver for disclosure.

KVM over IP Control Access as Emergency Measure

The KX9970FT comes equipped with a PS/2 port for connection to a KVM over IP Access Control Box (2XRT-0015G), which can be used to stop all remote receiver connections in times of emergency to allow technicians to perform timely troubleshooting and required maintenance at the local console.

Comprehensive Video Wall Collaboration to Reinforce Teamwork Efficiency

When integrating with the video wall, the KX9970F features ATEN's patented Boundless Switching which allows operators to intuitively switch control from one computer to another by moving the mouse cursor across screens, in order to respond to any incident with escalated awareness. Furthermore, all screen contents can be "pushed" and "pulled" for prompt collaboration, sharing, and troubleshooting as required between workstations and the video wall, facilitating a streamlined control room workflow to maximize informed decision making.


The KX9970F is perfectly suited to mission-critical control room applications where secure KVM over IP agility, real-time monitoring, and ergonomic desktop operations are demanded, including broadcasting NOCs, ATC towers, & production line monitoring. It is also ideal for professional gaming.
