Question: Hello, is the LV5020 kvm compatible with the display port (thunderbolt) out of the Mac Pro 6.1?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The LV5020 engineering team confirmed they have confirmed that there are no known issues for compatibility when using Thunderbold (miniDP) to DisplayPort connection coming out from a Mac - they are currently using the same setup with an LV5020 using a Mac with Thunderbolt connection as we speak.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with!

You may also be interested in similar IP based KVM extender solutions, such as Adder INFINITY ALIF2020P (Dual-DVI) or ALIF4021P (Dual-DP - coming later this year), which feature configurable permissions and access modes including exclusive access (no other user can access the source simultaneously through the solution).
