VIDEO: DCX Series Digital KVM Switches explained

The DCX series is the ideal high performance KVM application where multiple users are connected to multiple computers, even over end-to-end distances up to 60 metres. The DCX Digital KVM systems provide instantaneous signal switching allowing fast access to new systems which is especially important in fast-paced environments

Industry Applications

Broadcast

  • Ideal for small TV/Radio studios with space limitation and budget restrictions
  • For Satellite News Gathering(SNG) and OBV (Outside Broadcast Van) Operators with space and weight limitations that need to perform editing, voice over and uploading of content in real-time

Data Centres

Ideal for data centres with advanced server maintenance (servers with VGA/DVI out) where the personnel numbers are lower than in enterprise-sized organisations.

Healthcare Labs

Ideal in medical environments where KVM extension and switching benefit sleep laboratories, patient monitoring and laboratory automation.

Science (Labs and Test beds)

Perfect for expanding server room operations at an affordable cost with a small compartment solution.

Video Conferencing

Ideal for small to medium size resellers/system integrators that need connectivity options for conference/board rooms:

  • Wired Interactive Conferencing; Easy Connectivity: CATx and extension Dongle based flexibility VGA/DVI/DP support
  • BYOD Remote control via WebUI

IT (Staging Labs)

Ideal for IT departments of big enterprises with many staff employed in PC assembly/customisation as well as installation/imaging/testing of PCs, hard/software testing.

Process Monitoring and Control

The use of these KVM switches comes in handy when a controller has to monitor multiple computers where a single switch can control various computers, saving equipment at the desk and providing controllers with a detailed overview of the system.

Product Details

Switch like never before
The unique intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) moves away from the tradition of text-only on-screen display (OSD) menus, using auto-refreshed preview thumbnails, giving an intuitive user experience.
Additional hotkey operation.

Auto-configuration
The GUI automatically configures its layout and preview thumbnails when computer sources are added or subtracted.

Small, yet powerful
The DCX Series come inside a small, compact form enabling multiple users to access up to 23 target computers, connected over distances up to 50 metres from the central switch, in any high-performance KVM applications.

Server Access Modules (SAMs)
Powered by USB, the digital computer access modules sit in-line and are ideal for racks with limited space. Modules are available in DVI, VGA and DisplayPort options.

Zero compression, pixel perfection
Unlike other digital KVM switches, the DCX Series deliver every pixel of every video frame with zero compression and zero latency, fulfilling the needs of even the most demanding graphical applications and guaranteeing perfect video synchronisation for multiple display applications.

24/7 Power reliability
The DCX Digital KVM Switches use locking dual power connections to enable redundant power whilst providing continuous status updates to ensure true 24/7 operation and reliability.
