Matrox Intros Fiber-Based 4K KVM Extender

Avio_F125_setup_Eizo_4Kmonitor_peacock-1113Matrox’s new Avio F125 is a fiber-optic KVM extender designed to drive 4K signals up to 400 meters. In a strangely written press release, the company specifically says it works with the new Sharp PN-K321 4K Ultra-HD LCD monitor – -but it will work with any 4K display.

It’s actually capable of extending two HD video outputs, or one 2K/4K video, plus keyboard, mouse, stereo analog audio and USB 2.0 devices over a single duplex LC-LC fiber-optic cable up to 400 meters in multimode and 4 kilometers in single mode. Extension of 4K video at 30Hz is ideal for preview and playback of Ultra-HD video content.

Here are the product specs.
