“[KVM extenders] offer several benefits including equipment security, centralization of assets, ease of maintenance, or simply to improve work conditions,” says Caroline Injoyan, business development manager at Matrox Graphics.

“Switching is important when you want to build redundancy into your installations. If one critical system fails you want to quickly be able to switch to your back up system and resume operation, but not all KVM installations require switching.”

“There is a lack of standardization in the market. This gives you limited scalability and pushes the cost up. The future is IP and networked-based KVM solutions where standard gigabit network switches will replace proprietary KVM Switches, thus improving interoperability and lowering the total cost of ownership. This will also drive standardization.”

“IP-based solutions offer new capabilities, but there is a learning curve. AV installers will need to acquire the knowledge base to effectively deploy networked KVM solutions. It’s important to properly assess requirements to determine which KVM product to select.”
