Gefen’s KVM (Keyboard/Video/Mouse) extenders have gone digital. The systems still employ the same sender and receiver system connected by industry-standard CAT-5 cable, but now support high definition digital displays using DVI connectors.

Gefen’s CAT-5 based KVM extenders continue to support remote computer control while functioning as if connected locally, even when up to 150 feet from the computer. High-definition video is sustained up to 1,920 x 1.200 and various interfaces are provided that augment a variety of systems, from the humble home studio to the most sophisticated setup.

Several models are available to choose from, providing a unique assortment of peripheral support, offering nearly complete customized options: The CAT-5-1000HD extends one DVI display and USB keyboard/mouse; the CAT5-5000HD extends two DVI displays and USB keyboard/mouse; the CAT5-7000HD extends two DVI displays, USB or PS/2 keyboard/mouse, RS232 and audio in/out; and the CAT5-9000HD extends one DVI display, USB or PS/2 keyboard/mouse, RS232 and audio in/out.

“We’ve been supplying KVM extenders for many years now and have a clear understanding of what our customers need and want,” said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO. “Our selection of CAT-5 KVM Extenders are intended to support the performance of the computer peripherals professionals rely on to do their job most effectively—the tools they need to function at 100 percent, especially when extended away from their source.”

All of Gefen’s CAT5 KVM Eextenders are available to order, ranging in price from $799 to $1495. AES Booth: 355
