Dual-Monitor KVM Extender

Matrox Graphics Inc.'s Matrox Extio F2208 KVM extender is a remote graphics solution that separates the operator console (two displays plus five USB 2.0 ports for keyboard, mouse and other HIDs) from the host system by up to 1 km of fiber-optic cable. The dual-monitor Extio F2208 leverages its bus extension technology using a proprietary PCIe bus interface card to deliver raw, uncompressed data over the single- or multi-mode cable, enabling users to run applications at up to 2560x1600 per remote monitor with uncompromised workstation performance. Designed specifically for process control rooms, dispatch centers, and other mission-critical environments, the Extio F2208 is an I/O extension solution that allows the critical parts of the computer be kept in a separate, secure location.

Matrox Extio offers Matrox PowerDesk desktop management software and passive cooling for silent operation and reliability, while at the same time eliminating hidden dropped frame issues experienced with compression-based KVM extension solutions.
