This switch is a multifunction device that configures easily for use as a: KVM Switch, Crosspoint Switch, or Multiplex Repeater. It supports USB keyboard and mouse. It also extends distances up to: 800ft. (120 m) over CAT5, 1350ft. (200 m) over multimode 62.5μ, 2600ft. (400 m) over multimode 50μ, 66,000ft. (10 km) over singlemode 9μ, and Optional serial and audio.

The Orion LC multifunction DVI KVM Switch is a unique product that offers three operating modes in a single product; a KVM Switch, a Crosspoint switch, or a
Multiplex repeater. Each operating mode can also be configured to support several different system arrangements. Simple dip switch settings determine the operating mode for the unit. Selecting / switching channels can be done by keyboard commands, serial string commands, or the front panel push button. The Orion LC interfaces to Rose Electronics CrystalView DVI CATx extender family. These extenders offer single or dual head video, local access and serial/audio options.

As a DVI KVM switch, you can switch up to 7 computers to one user station or 3 Dual head computers to one user station. Connect a second stage to the unit and you now have access to 49 computers from one user station (9 Dual head computers). Select the Crosspoint switch operating mode and each of the eight ports can be used as an input or an output. This offers the flexibility of switching 1 to 7 DVI inputs to 1 to 7 DVI outputs. An example of this flexibility is to connect three surveillance cameras to three input ports and five monitors to five output ports. Setting the operating mode to the Multiplex Repeater mode gives you the flexibility of extending and distributing 1 to 4 video sources to 1 to 4 video displays. Any combination of sources to displays that total 4 can be configured. (1 to 7, 2 to 3, or 4 to 4).
