Black Box Corp., a provider of voice communications, data infrastructure and networking products announced the launch of its ServSwitch Agility DVI, USB and Audio over IP Extenders that enable keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) extension over virtually any distance using existing network infrastructure to efficiently deliver IP traffic, including perfect digital video quality over unlimited distances.

Ideal for distributing high-quality medical images across large facilities, managing digital signage networks or bringing added collaboration capabilities to multimedia post production suites, the ServSwitch Agility supports a multitude of configuration options to meet virtually every need, including:

·         Point-to-point KVM extension. Easily connect a keyboard, monitor, and mouse in one location to a CPU or server in a distant location over existing CAT6 cable to provide remote access to secure hardware assets over distances up to 328 feet on a single extender. Or, drop in additional network switches to extend the distance 328 feet more for each switch on the line. Point-to-point applications are ideal for manufacturing or other industrial environments, allowing end-users access to CPUs that remain protected inside dust-free or climate-controlled areas.
·         Switching network capability. Agility makes it possible to turn the entire network into a KVM switch, allowing the end-user to change channels on the receiver to switch DVI, audio, and USB connections to any equipped destination on the network. This configuration is well-suited for allowing network administrators to remotely access and control individual workstations and other network hardware.
·         Single-target sharing. Enable multiple users to share a single remote computer with multiuser options: View Only enables each user to see only the video feed; Share Mode facilitates multiple-user access to connected devices simultaneously; in Exclusive Mode, one user locks out others, preventing them from viewing or sharing the connection while in use.
·         Multicasting of video and audio network wide. Agility can deliver the same audio/video feed across the IP network without creating additional network traffic using multiple receivers that broadcast the same IP data flowing over the network. With no distance limits, this setup is ideal for digital signage applications and for delivering rich media experiences in public spaces, enabling the user to drive specific content to specific displays.
