MONTREAL 30 August 2012 — Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced the availability of the Matrox® Avio™ F120 fiber-optic KVM extender for the latency-free operation of a remote desktop at resolutions up to 4K. Designed for graphics and video-intensive applications such as broadcast and post-production, the Avio F120 transmitter/receiver set extends two single-link DVI (2x1920x1200) or one dual-link DVI (2560x1600 or 4096x2160) video and USB HID peripherals from the host system by up to 2000 m (6562 ft). The Avio F120’s uncompressed transmission delivers exceptional graphics and video playback performance, with the computer centrally stored in a machine room via a single duplex LC-LC fiber-optic cable—critical requirements in industrial process control, oil and gas, 3D design and visualization, and military environments.
The Avio F120’s support for 4K resolution content additionally provides a future-proof platform for professionals working with the industry’s next-generation video resolution standard. Users benefit from the extension of a dual-link DVI, 4K display running at 30Hz, with the transmitter unit able to clone and share the remote desktop on a local 4K projector.
 
"The Matrox Avio F120 offers the perfect marriage between performance and ease of deployment, resulting in a highly sought-after solution for all graphics-intensive environments," said Caroline Injoyan, Business Development Manager at Matrox Graphics, Inc. "Remote operators enjoy the same user experience as at the workstation, while a single fiber-optic cable conveniently satisfies today’s most advanced distance, security, safety, and installation needs.”
 
Matrox will be showcasing the Matrox Avio F120 KVM extender at IBC 2012 at stand 7.B29, from September 7-11, 2012.
