Control a Remote Computer with KVX Series KVM Extenders

The KVX Series KVM Extender Kits let you control a remote computer from your local workstation while your critical hardware is securely stored in your data center. KVX can extend KVM signals up to 100 meters (328 feet) over CATx cable or up to +30 kilometers (+18 miles) over fiber cable through an SFP connector.

KVX is available in DVI (HD), HDMI (4K), and DisplayPort (4K) models that support one or two screens. Unlike other KVM extenders, KVX allows you to connect one or two displays at the remote location if you need to monitor the computer locally.
