KVM Extender Guide

Choose from our wide selection of KVM Extenders

Whether your application is digital high-definition video, KVM, or matrix peripheral switching, using extenders enables you to remove computer noise and heat from your work area. Additionally, KVM extension enables you to move servers and CPUs to low-dust, climate-controlled equipment rooms without sacrificing video quality, picture resolution, or real-time peripheral switching.

Finally, server maintenance, software updates, and network administration become centralized, and time and cost associated with staff support is reduced. Along with extending DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI or VGA video, these applications extend keyboard and mouse, digital or analog audio, serial, USB HID, and USB 2.0.

This buyer's guide will help you select the right KVM extender for your application. Please click on the arrows in the table header to filter for your requirements.
