Matrox Announces New IP KVM Technology

Matrox today announced the Matrox Extio 3, an IP KVM product supporting 4K60 4:4:4 video (8-bit color), keyboard and mouse, as well as USB 2.0 and audio at low bit rates over standard 1-Gigabit Ethernet. Extio 3 supports DisplayPort 1.2 connectivity with a maximum resolution of 3840×2160@60Hz 8-bit color. That, uncompressed, would be about 9 Gbps, but they are compressing it to just under 1 Gbps.

Compatible with existing Gigibit network infrastructure, Extio 3 can support both standard copper and fiber optic cabling and is integrable as a either a point-to-point or networked KVM extender.

As it’s a totally new product, not much is available and the full roll-out is set for InfoComm in June. More information is here.
