The Orion multifunction DVI KVM Switch is a unique product that offers two operating modes in a single product; a KVM Switch or a Crosspoint switch. Each operating mode can also be configured to support several different system arrangements. Selecting / switching channels can be done by keyboard commands, serial string commands, or over a graphical web interface.
The Orion interfaces to Rose Electronics DVI CATx or fiber extender family. These extenders offer single, dual, or quad head video, local access and serial/audio options. Each video source connects to a transmitter and each video display connects to a receiver. The transmitter and receiver model depends upon the application the Orion is set-up for.
As a DVI KVM switch, you can switch:
n 16 user stations to 32 computers (Single-head)
n 8 user stations to 16 computers (Dual-head)
n 4 user stations to 8 computers (Quad-head)
Connect other Orion units to the main unit and you can now have access up to 1024 computers from the user stations.
Select the Crosspoint switch operating mode and each of the input ports can be switched to an output port. This offers the flexibility of switching 1 to 32 DVI signals to 1 to 16 DVI monitors or 16 DVI signals to 32 DVI monitors.
