Extension and Switching, Redefined

Extio 3 IP KVMs provide control rooms with unprecedented operational efficiency to monitor and control any system on the network.

Control rooms play an essential role in many environments, where operators monitor  and analyze different types of information for critical decision making. In most cases, operators need to access data from systems or specialized equipment housed in server rooms to make timely and well-informed decisions, easily collaborate with colleagues, or execute their tasks. Matrox® Extio™ 3 IP KVM extenders offer productivity-boosting features that enhance operator efficiency and facilitate the secure and remote monitoring of multiple systems.

The foundation: KVM matrix system over IP

Extio 3 extends high-quality 4K or multi-monitor workstations over a standard one Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) network, and couples seamlessly with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) network switches. The result: a secure, scalable, cost-effective, and high-performance KVM matrix switching over IP system for control rooms where operators can connect to any system from any remote user station in real-time. Operators will discover an exceptional remote desktop experience—as if sitting next to the host PCs—whether they are accessing systems located in another room, building, or city.

Control more with less

In today’s control room, speed and efficiency are absolute musts, especially when mission-critical decision making is required. Extio’s Aggregator Mode helps further streamline workflows by permitting operators to simultaneously view and control multiple computers from a multi-monitor workspace using just a single keyboard and mouse. By moving the mouse to a target desktop, control shifts instantly from one computer to another. The valuable time saved here on an efficient, aggregated platform could make all the difference in saving lives and keeping environments safe.


Dynamic switching, dynamic results

In scenarios where operators need the switching capability only on one of their screens, they can optimize their workflow with the Dynamic Switching feature. The on-screen-display menu provides a global view of all systems that they can instantly connect to and bring up on one of their displays, while they remain connected to their main systems on the other displays.


Dynamic Switching offers a convenient, easy-to-use operation to quickly and easily connect to any computer on the network.

Extension and switching for any control room environment

For applications ranging from process control and transportation to emergency dispatch and broadcast, Extio 3 provides these control room environments and their operators with the essential IP KVM extension and switching platform. With the ability to extend, switch, and control all systems from a single operator station, control rooms will benefit from unprecedented operational efficiency to optimize decision-making, enhance employee collaboration, and deliver faster turnaround times.
