Matrox Extio 2 Series Extio F2208 Ürün Detayı

Extio F2208

High Performance, Dual Monitor KVM Optical Extender

Matrox Extio F2208 is a point-to-point, KVM extension solution that uses fiber-optic cable to separate the keyboard, mouse, USB, audio peripherals and up to two displays from the rest of the computer by up to 1 km (3280 feet). Equipped with the latest Matrox KVM technology, the Extio F2208 extends the bus via a PCIe bus interface card while the fiber-optical connection guarantees performance - eliminating hidden/dropped frames, data latency, and artifacts as seen with compression-based solutions.

Key Features

  • High performance, zero compression KVM optical extension up to 1 km from the PC1
  • Supports up to 2 displays (DisplayPort™, Digital, or Analog) from a single appliance, fiber-optic cable and workstation2
  • Independent and stretched mode support for 2x1 configurations
  • Combine two Matrox PCIe interface cards, Matrox Extio F2208, Extio F2408, plus Extio F2408E Expander units to drive up to 16 DisplayPort and/or DVI displays, keyboard, mouse, audio and up to eight additional USB 2.0 ports at up to 1 km from the PC
  • Clone multiple displays in two separate remote locations across two fiber-optic cables, while also stretching desktops
  • Max. resolution of 2560x1600 (DisplayPort), & 1920x1200 (Digital, Analog) per display
  • Fiber-optic connection allows raw, uncompressed data to travel between the remote host system and the user-side Extio F2208 appliance, resulting in unmatched HD resolution support and uncompromised workstation performance
  • Designed for process control rooms, dispatch centers, and other mission-critical environments that require stable, reliable I/O extension technology
  • Flexible connectivity with 5x USB 2.0 ports for keyboard, mouse, touch screens and other HIDs
