The system consists of two units; a transmitter and a
receiver. The transmitter connects to your CPU’s
keyboard, DVI-D monitor, and mouse connectors, or to a
Rose KVM switch. The receiver connects to a keyboard,
DVI-D video monitor and mouse or KVM station. The
transmitter and receiver are connected together with CATx
industry standard cable. The receiver can be up to 400
feet from the transmitter using CAT5, 5e, 6, or 7 cables.
All models are available with both transmitter and receiver
KVM access. The transmitter’s KVM access allows an
additional KVM station to be connected to the transmitter
unit. If your system requires dual video, the CrystalView
DVI CATx dual video model can fully support it. If you
need to extend your serial device or audio the CrystalView
DVI CATx serial and audio model can support this feature.

CrystalView DVI CATx basics The CrystalView
DVI CATx system consists of a transmitter that
connects to a PC, server, or KVM switch and a
receiver that connects to a keyboard, monitor, and
mouse or a KVM switch. The transmitter and receiver
units are connected together with up to 400 feet of
standard CATx cable. Serial / audio models connect to
the computers serial and audio ports and to the
corresponding ports on the transmitter. The serial /
audio receiver connects to a set of speakers and to a
supported serial device.
The ideal way to apply the CrystalView DVI CATx is to
connect the transmitter to a Rose Electronics KVM
switch. Expanding the switch allows the receiver to
access up to 1,000 computers or servers.
Models The CrystalView DVI CATx is available in a
PS/2 or USB model. All models allow for a second
KVM station to be connected to the transmitter unit,
providing operation from the transmitter or the
receiver unit. The dual video model supports systems
that need to digitally transmit a second video source.
Serial and full stereo audio models provide extended
serial and audio support.

Installation Installing the CrystalView DVI CATx
units is as easy as connecting the KVM station to the
receiver, connecting the CPU to the transmitter, and
connecting the transmitter to the receiver with CATx
cable. Serial and audio models connect to the
corresponding ports on the computer and local unit.
The remote unit connects to a set of speakers and a
supported serial device.
Keyboard and Mouse emulation The
CrystalView DVI CATx uses a microprocessor to
emulate the keyboard and mouse. Only the
transmitter unit has to be connected for the PC to
boot properly.
