    Overview

    Matrox KVM extenders centralize hardware in a climate-controlled server room to increase security, protect systems against environmental hazards, and reduce system noise and heat emissions. The Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM extender grants seamless remote access to these secured systems, plus the added benefit of smart control over the IP network. This IP KVM extender is ideally suited for industrial automation and control, healthcare, transportation, military, defense, government, broadcasting, and post-production industries and applications.

    Superior Performance

    Superior performance

    Extio N3208 extends dual displays (2x 1920x1200 @60Hz) or a single high-resolution display (2560x1600 @60Hz) along with keyboard and mouse, USB 2.0, and audio signals at unprecedented low bitrates over standard Gigabit Ethernet, with a single pair of transmitter and receiver devices. Extio 3’s unique design delivers pristine image quality, smooth video playback, and excellent keyboard and mouse responsiveness at a distance.

    Flexible Operation

    Flexible operation
    Matrox KVM extenders are designed to support evolving needs: whether deployed as point-to-point extenders or as IP KVM, these appliances offer the flexibility to adapt installations as demands change. Extio 3 extenders support one-to-one, many-to-one, one-to-many, or many-to-many configurations to drive connectivity needs. With the power to create flexible, scalable and secure KVM matrix-routing using standard network switches, the Extio 3 helps future proof investments; installations can be expanded with confidence and without costly upgrades.

    Efficient Multi-System Control

    Extio 3 Aggregator Mode
    Work efficiently and increase productivity with Extio 3’s Aggregator Mode that allows you to view and operate multiple source computer systems from any Extio receiver unit located at a remote multi-display station, and control them with a single keyboard and mouse set. Control can be shifted from one computer to another seamlessly by moving the mouse freely across multiple desktops—at the instant the mouse cursor moves from the current desktop to the next, the control is smoothly and automatically transferred to the target source system.

    Ease of Integration

    Ease of integration
    With Extio 3’s industry-leading technology, users can leverage existing IT networking equipment and standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure for seamless deployment and operations, extending up to four video signals using a single copper or fiber optic cable to reduce installation costs. Matrox Extio 3 KVM extenders fit readily into certified systems with plug and play deployment; there is no need to install additional software. Extio 3 IP KVM transmitter units are designed to optimize available space, and come either as a rack-mountable appliance or an integrated PCIe® card.

    Smart Control

    Smart control
    Extio Central Manager is an intuitive, easy-to-use software to remotely configure, manage, and monitor all Extio 3 units from a central location on the network. An on-screen display (OSD) on Extio 3 receiver appliances allow operators to conveniently preview all authorized computer desktops—readily identifiable via thumbnail previews—to instantly access and switch between multiple systems.

    High Availability

    Extio 3 includes several essential features that help organizations to build redundancy and fault tolerance into their installations. Supporting a distributed model of operation, Extio 3 removes single point of failure by storing all device settings and connectivity rules in each transmitter and receiver unit. Extio 3 appliances also feature two network interface ports that are configurable for link redundancy. Through its patented technology, Extio 3 intelligently adjusts its internal processing parameters to deliver a resilient KVM system that minimizes downtime, favoring continuous operation.

    Enhanced KVM Security & Monitoring

    Security monitoring
    Matrox Extio 3 Series safeguards installations by using HTTPs, a secure communication protocol for control commands over the network. Extio 3 encrypts the transmitted AV and USB signals and protects the desktop content. Extio 3 also easily integrates with Microsoft® Active Directory® services and allows IT managers to use existing Active Directory accounts for user authorization and authentication. Compatible with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Extio 3 devices can be monitored through third-party network management software.

    Applications

    KVM Application Markets

    Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM extenders are a perfect fit for extension and switching applications in a wide range of markets. Whether the need is to extend a single high resolution 4Kp60 4:4:4 video signal, or multiple Full HD 1080p60 4:4:4 videos; or extend highly secure data over fiber optic or copper cabling; and where extremely reliable applications with round the clock availability is essential, Extio 3 is ideal. Extio 3 IP KVM extender’s ready compatibility with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) network switches provides for easily scalable, secure, and cost-effective matrix switching solutions that enable collaborative work environments, where multiple users from different locations can access multiple systems simultaneously. All this on a one Gigabit Ethernet network, using just 5% of the bandwidth required by most other IP KVM products.
