MONTREAL — April 18, 2017 — Matrox® today announced the Matrox Extio 3, the world’s first IP KVM product supporting 4K60 4:4:4 video, keyboard, and mouse, as well as USB 2.0 and audio at low bit rates over standard Gigabit Ethernet. Complementing the current Matrox Extio and Avio product lines, the Extio 3 advances Matrox's offerings in high-performance KVM products for knowledge workers.
Through revolutionary technology, the Extio 3 is capable of providing 4K60 4:4:4, desktop-quality video at 5% of the bandwidth required by most other solutions available in the market today. With exceptional remote performance, smooth video playback, and pristine image quality, Extio 3 supports DisplayPort 1.2 connectivity with a maximum resolution of 3840x2160@60Hz in true color.

“We know our customers are looking for a secure, reliable KVM experience,” said Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “Leveraging existing IP infrastructures, the Extio 3 allows any crucial systems to be placed and managed from secured remote locations, and controlled from a distance.”
Readily compatible with existing network infrastructure, Extio 3 offers flexible deployment options; supporting both standard copper and fiber optic cabling. Integrable as a either a point-to-point or networked KVM extender, this new product creates a scalable and cost-effective KVM matrix switching environment using networks available.
“With the flexibility offered by an IP-enabled KVM, our customers will have the ability to seamlessly collaborate and work with more systems, moving information from an operator screen to a central video wall or mobile devices, and creating more efficient workflows,” said Injoyan.
Matrox will be showcasing Extio 3 for the first time at Hannover Messe 2017 (Hannover, April 24-28, Hall 11, Stand B65), along with their complete line of KVM Extenders and display controller products, including their latest AV-over-IP encoders and decoders and graphics cards.
