Matrox Extio 3 Series cards and appliances are capable of providing 4Kp60 4:4:4 or quad 1080p60 4:4:4 — a DisplayPort 1.2 connector on Extio 3 N3408 IP KVM extenders ensure a maximum resolution of 3840×2160 at 60Hz in true color. Extio 3 Series also provides configuration options, supporting copper or fiber-optic cabling in point-to-point or networked KVM operations. Extio 3 readily work with standard commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) network switches.

Additionally, an on-screen display (OSD) on Extio 3 receiver appliances allow operators to preview all authorized computer desktops — readily identifiable via thumbnail previews — to instantly access and switch between multiple systems. For lower-level customization, integrators and developers can leverage Extio Central Manager APIs to build personalized Extio Central Manager applications and/or integrate Extio 3 functionality into existing control applications.

The Matrox Extio 3 N3408 4K/quad-monitor and Extio 3 N3208 dual-monitor IP KVM extenders will be available as of June 30th and here are all the specs.
