Technology Overview | Video Extension
Going the Distance: The Future of Video Extension
By Erik Indresovde
Analog versus Digital Video
Analog video (VGA)
100%
An analog video signal can be run over long lengths of native VGA cable as long as the diameter
and shielding of the cable is good enough. However, regardless of the cable quality, signal
attenuation increases with video frequency and cable length. This means that after 9 to 15
meters, the image quality will start to degrade. This leads to color skew and smeared-looking text.
To solve for signal degradation in VGA applications, use an extender that compensates for signal
loss. A good extender has separate adjustments for high and low frequencies; HF loss is usually
greater than LF loss.
Picture Quality
An analog signal is continuously variable. Composite video, Component video, RGBHV, and VGA
are types of analog video signals, with VGA being the most common video format used with
PCs — at least until recently.
Cable Length
Picture quality of an analog signal gradually
declines over longer lengths of cable.
Digital video
However, what you will get when the maximum supported cable length is exceeded is the “cliff”
effect, where the digital signal drops off and you completely lose the picture. To overcome
distance limitations, you need to use extenders or repeaters.
DVI and HDMI Interfaces
100%
Picture Quality
While analog video signals travel in a sine-like wave form, digital signals travel in a square-like
waveform. A digital signal is broken into a binary format where the audio or video data is
represented by a series of 1s and 0s. Like analog signals, digital video also suffers from loss,
but as long as the cable is of sufficient quality and within the maximum supported distance,
the signals don't suffer from blurring or color skew. HDMI and DVI (explained below) are
examples of typical digital video interfaces.
Cable Length
Picture quality of digital signal (e.g. HDMI)
suddenly drops at a certain length of cable
(cliff effect).
Digital video interface (DVI)
DVI is the standard digital interface for PCs.
The DVI standard is based on transition-minimized differential signaling (TMDS). DVI comes in
two formats: single-link and dual-link. Single-link DVI has a maximum frequency of 165 MHz,
and dual-link DVI, as you would expect, has double the maximum frequency. A single-link
interface can transmit a resolution of 1920 x 1200 vs. 2560 x 1600 for dual link.
The most common DVI connectors are:
• DVI-D: A digital-only connector for use between a digital video source and monitors. DVI-D eliminates the analog pins.
• DVI-I (integrated): Supports both digital and analog RGB connections. It can transmit
either a digital-to-digital signal or an analog-to-analog signal. It is used on products instead
of separate analog and digital connectors.
High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
HDMI® is the standard digital interface for HDTV. It was the first digital interface to combine
uncompressed HD video, up to eight channels of uncompressed digital audio, and intelligent
format and command data in a single cable. It is now the de facto standard for consumer
electronics and HD video, although it is beginning to face competition from the newer DisplayPort
(DP) interface. In addition, HDMI also uses TMDS signaling, like DVI, and is backward compatible.

Video Extension
HDMI offers an easy, standardized way to set
up AV equipment over one cable. Use it to
connect equipment such as digital signage
players, set-top boxes, and AV receivers with HD
TVs and video projectors. If the HDMI equipment
supports higher-resolution HDMI standards, you
can also connect 3D displays.
HDMI also supports multiple audio formats from
standard stereo to multichannel surround sound.
In addition, the interface provides two-way
communications between the video source and
HDTV, enabling simple, remote, point-and-click
configurations.
It also supports high-bandwidth digital content
protection (HDCP), which prevents distribution
and copying of digital audio and video content
sent over HDMI cable. If you have a device
between the source and the display that supports
HDMI but not HDCP, your transmission won’t
work if the content is copyright protected.
HDMI is backward compatible with DVI
equipment because, like DVI, it uses TMDS
signaling. A DVI-to-HDMI adapter can be used
without a loss of video quality to enable the
connection. Because DVI only supports video
signals, not audio, the DVI device simply ignores
the extra audio data. However, dual link is not
common in HDMI. DVI displays usually also are
not able to display HDCP protected and/or
component encoded (YCbCr) HDMI signals.
Technical Aspects of Digital
Video Extension
Lossless proprietary extension
HDBaseT extension
When the TMDS signal collapses because of
attenuation, or too long a cable, it is no longer
readable by a display. However, an extender or
repeater uses a proprietary digital algorithm
to transmit and receive signals over a specific
distance, and can equalize and reshape the TMDS
signal for the end display. Proprietary extension
technology enables users to extend HDMI or DVI
to a remote display up to 30-35 meters away
without any loss or signal degradation. Extension
is possible over native HDMI or DVI cabling with a
repeater device equalizing the signal, or over
CATx with an extender setup that consists of
transmitter and receiver devices.
HDBaseT™ is the first technology to enable longreach wired connectivity of uncompressed HD
multimedia content via a single LAN cable.
HDBaseT enables transmission of DVI or HDMI
video and audio, 100BASE-T Ethernet, power,
and control signals from a source to a display over
a standard CATx cable. By using sophisticated
encoding and equalization techniques, it is
possible to transmit the video signal as well as
the peripheral signals uncompressed up to 100
meters. The chip has proven to be very
reliable and is the only solution on the market
today allowing transmission of uncompressed
video on standard CATx cables at that distance.

Technology Overview | Video Extension
Going the Distance (continued from previous page)
Compressed digital extension
and IP extension
Another technique to extend video over longer
distances using reduced bandwidth is to use
compression. Compression makes it possible
to run the signal over longer-distance cable,
to transmit it wirelessly; or to send it over a
standard IP network, the local area network
(LAN).
Compression does not have to mean low-quality
video. Compressions may be lossy or lossless.
The compressions used on cable TV or Internet
video streams are usually lossy compressions,
such as H.264. Although these compressions
give sufficient image quality for digital signals,
they are not suitable for high-quality computer
images in control rooms or medical applications.
These applications require higher bandwidth
but usually run over a LAN where bandwidth
is not an issue, not over the Internet. The best
compression algorithms today make it possible
to run Full HD computer images and video over
the local network without any visual loss in
quality.
IP extension is a way to extend your application
over long distances. IP extension is flexible and
expandable, and gives you the option of using
either CATx or fiber optic cabling, depending
how far you want to go. IP-based extenders
usually send data over a 100-meters segment,
but you can extend farther by using Ethernet
switches as repeaters; or, if using fiber cable, go
even farther, up to at least 16 kilometers.
Fiber optic extension
For the really long runs exceeding 120 meters,
the best option is fiber optic extension, unless
you can use multiple repeaters or run
the signal over an IP network. The biggest
advantage with optical extension is the very
high bandwidth compared to copper cable.
This makes it possible to transmit lossless,
full HD signals over great distances — up to
thousands of meters. Furthermore, using a fiber
cable makes the connection optically isolated,
getting rid of any issues with ground loops, etc.
This is usually required in hospitals and other
critical applications. An optical connection
is also immune to EMI noise, making it the
perfect choice for industrial applications.
Lossy to lossless compression.

Extension Technologies
A Brief Overview of Video and Peripheral Extension
O
ne of the most common types
of video and peripheral extension
is keyboard, video, and mouse
(KVM) technology extension.
These types extenders connect users via
human interface devices (HIDs), like keyboards,
touchsceens, and monitors, to target
devices — servers, workstations, computers — without the need for drivers to be installed on
the target devices. Although these solutions
primarily extend or switch HD video and KVM
signals, most extenders also support audio,
RS-232, and USB signals. The goal of video
and peripheral extension technology is to share
resources and improve operability transparently.
In general, good extension solutions have a low
total cost of ownership (TCO) because they last
seven to ten years. This means they survive at
least two generations of targets and peripheral
devices, which usually are updated much more
quickly. Good video and peripheral extension
devices shouldn’t need to be replaced
that soon. They should demonstrate
future compatibility through connections,
cascadability, and scalability. Video and
peripheral extension solutions should also
offer a quick return on investment (ROI).
By improving operability, ergonomics, and
work time savings, this type of extension leads
to a more efficient use of human resources.
In addition, video and peripheral extension
is a green IT solution, leading to energy and
cost savings.
A Brief Overview of USB Peripheral Extension
USB Essentials
USB’s main attraction is that it makes adding
peripherals to your computer incredibly easy.
It enables you to connect peripherals to the
outside of the computer so you don’t have to
open your PC. A USB peripheral plugs right into
the port and works. You don’t even need to
reboot your computer.
Virtually every operating system (OS) on the
market today is USB enabled. USB technologies
come in a variety of versions and speeds.
Logos were created for each of the product
specifications, from standard USB 1.1 to
SuperSpeed USB 3.0, the latest technology. The
most common version in use today is USB 2.0.
USB Extension
Although USB is a versatile serial interface,
it’s subject to an inherent distance limitation
of five meters. USB extenders enable USB
peripherals to be placed wherever users need
them, up to 2 kilometers from a host computer.
With a USB extender, peripheral
devices function as if they were within the
five-meter limit specified by USB Implementors'
Forum (USB-IF), which prepares the specifications
for USB technology.
USB extenders preserve standard USB
functionality and timing restrictions while
accommodating the increased cable delay
incurred in extended-range transmissions.
USB extenders are composed of two units
connected by a transmission line. These units
are referred to as the local extender and remote
extender. The local unit is connected to a downstream-facing port of a USB host controller
or hub; the remote unit is connected to the
upstream-facing port of a USB hub or device.
Once operational, the entire USB extender
system operates like a single standard USB hub.
Protocol Converter
The only restriction placed on the configuration
is that multiple USB extenders cannot be
connected in series. Most USB extenders
use CAT5 cable; if you require
extra distance, you might
need to consider a
different cable type,
such as fiber.
As a standard USB hub, the USB extender
system is compatible with all operating systems
that support USB hubs and requires no
additional software to be loaded.
Because the system appears to be as a

conventional hub (albeit a very long one),
it can be connected to other hubs to the full
depth permitted by USB. The system can be
used as the first, last, or any intermediate hub
in a chain. Multiple systems can also be used
in parallel within a single domain — a common
situation when opposite ends of a building need
to be reached from a central computer room or
telecom closet.

Technology Overview | True USB Emulation
The Development of True USB Emulation for Better Switching
By Black Box Engineering
The earliest USB KVM switches relied upon standard keyboard and mouse
templates to tell each computer system how to deal with the connected
peripherals. High-performance KVM switches and HD video and peripheral
matrix switches that support true USB emulation technology channel
the identities of the connected keyboard and mouse and present those
“real” profiles to every connected system concurrently. This means even
specialized keyboards and mice (i.e. USB Sun keyboards, Glidepoint®
mice, jog wheels, and more) are fully supported.
Enumerated USB
In the beginning, when USB connectors first were becoming common,
there was simply enumerated USB. The name is derived from the initiation
process (enumeration) that every USB device goes through each time it is
connected to a computer. With enumerated switches, a connected USB
device is required to perform a full initiation every time it is switched.
This leads to latency issues, especially with mice and keyboards.
USB Keyboard
USB Mouse
Emulated USB
Due to the complexity of the USB signals and standards, a straightforward
way to read inputs of USB data streams, strip out the switching control
information, and then repackage the remainder for the computer had
been difficult to achieve. Eventually, emulated USB solved the problem.
Now, USB devices became, in effect, “hot-swappable” — each time they
are switched, the initiation process doesn’t need to be performed again.
In other words, in emulated USB switching, the characteristics of the
attached USB device are recreated once the required switching control
information has been removed from the data stream. A neat side effect
of the technique is that each computer can be “fooled” into thinking that
the USB device is permanently connected to it, even when the device is
switched to another computer.

True USB Emulation
However, although emulated switches cured a number of shortfalls
associated with their enumerated cousins, there was still one main
limitation to their operation. It remained a complex task to dynamically
assume the identity of a USB device, distribute it among the connected
computers, and maintain all the necessary signals, states, and processes.

Keyboard

USB Device
True USB Emulation
True USB emulation was developed to overcome the limitations associated
with even emulated USB switching techniques.
With true USB emulation, the complete identity of the keyboard and
mouse can be copied and then presented, fully supported, to all the
connected computers. This means that any keyboard offering special
function keys or any mouse with extra features will be fully supported at
each computer — instantly, with no latency. As with the previous emulation
method, the unselected computers continue to see the identities of the
keyboard and mouse, which means that no enumeration is necessary
when their link becomes active once again. This not only helps to make
reconnecting faster, it also increases switching reliability. This is important
because USB links are at their most vulnerable during the enumeration
process.

A high-speed circuit fully emulates the USB device identities, and it
interprets keyboard and mouse data streams. The result is full support
for KVM switching via hotkey presses or the third button/scroll wheel
of a mouse. For local installations, this is useful; for remote applications,
such as KVM over IP, it’s essential.
Because other USB devices don’t necessarily need the benefits of true
emulation like USB keyboards and mice do, there are one or even two
enumerated circuits along the true USB emulation feature. This enables
the other USB devices to operate at their highest speeds without any
intervention. The enumerated circuits benefit greatly from the USB hubs
that are jointly used with the true emulation system. Because they interface
directly and permanently with each computer, they help to stabilize
the dormant links, making errors during enumeration much less likely.
The dual switching arrangement provides further flexibility because
the true emulation and enumerated sections can be switched in unison
or independently of each other, as required. Thus, various peripherals
can operate with different computers at the same time.

Technology Overview | Ergonomics
Extension Technology and Ergonomics
By Mark Hempel
Trends in control & monitoring solutions
Becoming Ergonomic
• An increase in digital switching applications.
All control applications serve one purpose:
to help people focus on the applications and
processes of their jobs. Ergonomics, or the
science of adapting the job and/or equipment
and the operator to each other for optimal
safety and productivity1, is the end goal.
more closely on his or her work, rather than
on the equipment affecting his/her work. Taking
these steps ensures a rich desktop experience.
However, you have to be careful to not sacrifice
signal quality when bridging the distance
between the operator and the equipment.
Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned
with the understanding of interactions among
humans and other elements of a system.
The science of designing user interaction with
equipment and workplaces to fit the user has
been the cornerstone of technological advances
in automation and computer-based systems.
2. Flexibility and scalability means
equipment should:
• Enable relocation and backups easily.
• An increase in digital video distribution
applications.
• A desire for flexibility in controlling visual
and peripheral elements.
• A requirement to simplify complex system
designs and increase functionality.
Whether your extension and switching
application is digital high-definition video, or
KVM and matrix peripheral switching, using
extenders enables you to remove computer noise
and heat from your work area. HD video and
peripheral matrix switching and extension enable
effective management of broadcast, command
and control, and other collaborative environments;
flexible control of visual and peripheral elements;
and real-time, instant switching and display
of HD video and peripherals.
The key elements of ergonomics are silence,
a comfortable room climate, flexibility, scalability,
service friendliness, and ease of use.
1. Silence and room climate:
• Remove noisy equipment from the operator’s desk.
• Leave room for expansion.
• Be able to share systems, signals, and
resources.
3. Ease of use and service:
• Enable easy control, steering, and operation.
• Create no technical overhead.
• Keep service and maintenance out of sight
of operators.
• Keep heaters out of the room.
• Backrack servers in environmentally friendly, climate-controlled server rooms.
Results will enable the operator to focus

Matrix Switching
KVM and Peripheral Matrix Switching: What You Need to Know
By Dawn Patton Mangine
Extension Basics
Modern digital extension and switching
technology emphasizes the movement from
analog to digital video, and also away from
fixed-user-to-computer KVM switching toward
nearly freely scalable matrices (matrix switching).
These new proprietary (using CATx or fiber optic
cables) and IP-based digital technologies offer
real-time solutions — no delay, no skew. Along
with extending digital video, these applications
extend keyboard and mouse, digital or analog
audio, serial, and USB.
Additionally, the designs that apply to the
technologies outlined provide a quieter workplace
and remove excess heat from the area by placing
computers in low-dust, climate-controlled
equipment rooms without sacrificing video
quality, picture resolution, or real-time switching
of peripherals. Finally, server maintenance,
software updates, and network administration
become centralized, plus time and cost associated
with support is reduced.
Matrix Switch Technology
A matrix switch (also called a crosspoint
switch) is an assembly of individual switches
between multiple inputs and outputs. In KVM
and peripheral switching and extension, matrix
switches offer the most flexible, extendable,
and efficient configurations for HD video, audio,
USB, and RS-232 switching and extension. These
new configurations bring better functionality
and increased productivity to organizations,
especially in the post-production broadcasting
and professional audio-visual industries.
The most advanced matrix switches support
an array of ports that can be dynamically
allocated as input or output. This means that
ports can be connected to a CPU or connected
to a console, and ports can be switched
according to the users’ requirements. As long
as you have available ports, you can switch in
any combination of inputs and outputs — it
doesn’t need to be a one-to-one configuration
(i.e. a 160-port chassis equals 80 inputs and 80
outputs; you can configure it to have 159
outputs and one input if that’s what is needed).
The technology supports numerous
data streams in varied combinations through
extenders: video, KVM, audio, serial, USB 2.0.
Because of this updated technology, switching
is instantaneous, with no delay.
KVM switching in general is an efficiencycreating solution. These new matrix switching
systems take this flexibility and efficiency even
further, especially for A/V professionals. Instead
of a patchwork of switches and cables, matrix
switching systems come with digital or analog
audio, serial RS-232, high-speed USB 2.0, and
HID tablet support. Additionally, matrix switches
free up space in your data center. Plus they’re
cooler and quieter, eliminating excess noise
and heat in the workplace environment.
Along with dynamically allocated I/O ports,
some matrix switches enable mixing copper (CATx)
and fiber optic cabling. For video-heavy extension
over short distances, you can incorporate an
HDMI or DVI repeater using native cabling, or
an extender kit using proprietary uncompressed
technology. For optimal performance over long
distances and between buildings, fiber optic
cabling is an option as well. Using proprietary
cable infrastructure makes collaborative editing
much more efficient. Flexible matrix switches
enable you to access your expensive editing
hardware from remote locations, reducing

travel and meeting times, and making the
approval process quicker and easier. In addition
to digital video extension, the extenders offer
top-quality digital audio support. Actually, the
extensive range of extenders available to use
with a chassis-based matrix switch offers
connections from CPUs and other video sources
to monitors, projectors, video walls, and other
high-quality displays.
Seamless sharing capabilities enable you
to show a video across campus while working
with the audio team three doors down the
hallway from your office. The HD video and
digital audio extension and switching capabilities
in a system of chassis, modular interface cards,
and extenders gives users an almost endless
number of configurations for their applications.
Simply put, using a KVM switching solution that
is also a matrix switch means zero connectivity
barriers. Compact extenders that work with a
matrix switch even operate as standalone pointto-point extenders, over CATx or fiber cables—
or any combination of cabling an organization
wants to use.

Technology Overview | How to Buy
Buyer’s Tips: KVM Switching Systems
What are the most important elements to look for when buying
KVM switches?
IT managers need to consider video type and resolution. What type of USB devices will be
connected — HID devices such as keyboards and mice? If specialized keyboards are required,
the KVM switch must be able to pass the proper emulation to CPUs. Another question to ask
is whether you need audio, microphone, and speakers.
The types of computers you would like to use with the KVM switch and how they connect (DVI, VGA, PS/2, USB, audio,
serial etc.) are important elements. Knowing the types of computers you plan on buying in the next five years helps you
choose a switch to future-proof your investment. When looking at KVM switches, think about how many more
computers/servers you plan on adding in the upcoming months and years. You don’t want to fully populate a KVM switch
right away and discover you have to get the next size up or find a completely different solution. Also consider how many
users will need access to the KVM switch and if you require any IP control (VNC control from a remote office or from
anywhere around the world). If all computers/servers/users will be under one roof, consider how far away the
computers/servers/users will be from the centralized KVM switch. If any system/user will be farther than 4,5 meters,
consider using a CATx-based solution where all computers/users will be interconnected via standard CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6.
Suppliers need to ask these questions to the end client to figure out what they really need and try to suggest options that
would potentially save them money down the line.
What are the most common mistakes made when purchasing
KVM switches?
The biggest mistake is buying on lowest cost as the only factor without considering future needs.
The most common mistake is buying a KVM switch that will solve your problems for today only.
When this occurs, end users come back to the seller saying that they recently purchased a KVM
solution but they bought this new system XYZ that does A, B and C; however the KVM switch was not
designed to support D and E. This type of issue will cause the user to either buy a new separate KVM solution or set
the system up as a separate entity. Ultimately, this is frustrating to the end user. On more complicated systems that
require Server Access Modules (adapters that hang off the back of each PC or server) and various types of accessories
for mounting and access, users may mistakenly read a marketing article that tries to sell them a switch only and does not
mention that the user is required to have the additional accessories to make it work. If the switch is ordered without these
accessories, the installer will get it and be very frustrated. When purchasing the more complicated systems, keep in mind
that KVM switches that use any sort of CATx cable will ultimately force you into buying another device that connects to
both ends to encode/decode the signals.
Another very common mistake is users purchasing different types of equipment from different manufacturers
(KVM switch from vendor A, KVM extender from vendor B, and a KVM tray from vendor C) and being surprised to
encounter problems. When performing the initial installation and configuration, 90 percent of these users will realize
very quickly that they will have many compatibility issues on their hands. At Black Box, if we suggest a solution that includes
connecting more than one system, we make sure to have it fully tested and qualified so the end user will not
have to struggle to make it work.

How to Buy
What are the most common options available, and how do you decide
which option is best?
Desktop KVM switches have the most common options. The market supports many systems
from numerous manufacturers; however, the switches do not all operate the same way. The
most difficult thing to understand when looking at these types of switches is the difference in price
between various four-port desktop switches. Prices can range from $60 all the way up to $450. When
looking at these types of options and trying to compare the price difference, you will begin to notice major items that
may not be immediately identified. Some of the major differences between these types of switches are the way the
video is supported, having a built-in EDID channel, or the ability to program your own channels. Programming your
own EDID channel enables an end user to resolve any video issue they may have later when using different monitors.
With a fixed EDID channel in a lower-end switch, you can easily encounter KVM switches that will not render the video
correctly (e.g. shifted video, horizontal/vertical bars, no video/no signal, etc.). Between these two types of switches, you
will also need to identify the type of USB operation the application requires. The $60 KVM switch may only support USB
HID keyboards and mice, and if you attempt to plug in a USB flash drive, external storage device, or any other type of USB
2.0 device, it won’t function. On the other hand, the $450 KVM switch should offer the full USB spectrum functionality,
and may even support true USB emulation.

Non-networked CATx extenders, such as
the Wizard SRX DVI-D/USB Single-Head
Extenders, use transmitters and receivers
to extend converted signals over ordinary
(non-networked) UTP cabling. They’re very
cost-effective and enable much longer distances
than what’s ordinarily possible with digital video
cabling.

HD Video and Peripheral Switching and Extension
Matrix switching is flexible, extendable, and more efficient than
ever before. New configurations and technology bring better
functionality and increased productivity to organizations,
especially in the post-production broadcasting and professional
audio-visual industries. KVM technology extension, still the
most common type of video and peripheral extension, connects
users via human interface devices (HIDs) to target devices
without the need for additional drivers. This is a middleware
solution — neither wholly hardware nor software — to extend
or switch primarily KVM signals. However, most switches and
extenders also support audio, RS-232, and USB signals. The goal
of video and peripheral switching and extension solutions is to
share resources and transparently improve operability.

Additionally, broadcast is a collaborative
environment. Many people need access to video
and sound for review and editing. They need this access
immediately in real time, and the quality of the work has to
be very high.
KVM and HD video peripheral switching and extension solutions
are ideal for broadcasting environments. They enable access to many
users at once, in real time, and to high-definition video signals, audio,
serial, and USB peripherals. The configuration possibilities are endless.
KVM and video peripheral switching and extension also offer flexible
transmission options: CATx cable, fiber optic cable, or IP-based
extension.
In the diagram above, KVM and HD video and peripheral
extension is used to transmit every required signal from the
central equipment room to the end users. DKM FX extender
transmitters (A) take the signal from a computer and send it over
18
cabling to the DKM FX extender receivers (B). Receivers provide
all the necessary ports for connecting devices needed by the users
(keyboard, mice, touchscreens, speakers, USB peripherals). The
system administrator can configure, switch, and manage
the system from another workstation (C) with Web-based
management software. Individual extension technologies can easily
be combined in a freely scalable, high-performance switching matrix.
KVM and HD video and peripheral extension optimizes broadcast
processes by using existing network infrastructure. Video signals,
including VGA, DVI-I, SDI, and HDMI can be simultaneously
transmitted with peripheral signals. The USB interface ensures
that even specialty peripherals such as tablets and touchscreens
can be easily integrated.

Black Box Case Studies:
Broadcasting
The Challenge:
A major broadcast studio wanted to set up a video extension and peripheral matrix
switching system over its existing cabling network, which consisted of primarily
CAT5e and fiber optic cabling. The system needed to enable forty producers,
directors, studio technicians, and operators to gain access to more than sixty
computers, servers, video sources, and camera feeds from any desk location.
A competitor’s system that had been deployed caused daily problems including
delayed switching times, lack of simultaneous access for multiple users, limited device
support for USB peripherals, uneven video and audio quality, and unreliable system
durability, and it used an older infrastructure that needed to be updated.
Broadcasting and production
studios need access for multiple
users and instantaneous switching
for live broadcasts and updates.
The Solution:
The Chief Hardware Engineer of the
studio came to Black Box because he
had worked with us on a digital signage
solution that has been very stable.
He wanted an entire switching and
extension solution. The studio was
responsible for producing live
broadcasts, and the list of issues that
needed to be addressed was long.
The system needed to be as free of
glitches as possible, and extremely
reliable and flexible. The current system
and its faults left end users frustrated
and had IT support dealing with endless
trouble tickets. Plus, technical support
had to be available 24/7 all the way
through the process (pre- and post-sale).
The solution decided upon was
the DKM FX HD Video and Peripheral
Matrix Switching system, which is a
modular system of chassis, interface
cards, and extenders. Since time was
of the essence, and a site visit was not
possible, the Black Box team of product
engineers, application engineers, sales
specialists, and product managers worked
together to review the application and
its challenges. Demo equipment was
configured at Black Box and shipped to
the studio, where the Chief Hardware
Engineer was able to configure the setup
with online and phone support from our
engineering specialists. DKM FX
transmitters were installed at each
server, computer, video source, and
camera feed; receivers were connected
to each user station. A single point of
management and control was installed

in the server room and deployed over
the existing infrastructure of CAT5e
and fiber cable.
Because this HD video and peripheral
matrix switching system is incredibly
flexible and scalable, the engineer is
able to continue to expand his broadcast
configuration, adding equipment and
users as required. The Chief Hardware
Engineer stays in contact with the
engineers from Black Box, and often
inquires about feature sets he would
like to see on our products. Black Box
product development and support
teams also continually release updated
firmware to fulfill this client’s needs.

A command and control room (also
referred to as a command and control center) is
typically a secure room or building in a government,
military, or prison facility that operates as the agency's
dispatch center, surveillance monitoring center, coordination office,
and alarm monitoring center all in one.
This state-of-the art matrix and peripheral switching and extension
technology offers an array of ports that can be dynamically allocated
as input or output. Ports can be connected to a CPU or connected to a
console, and ports can be switched according to the users' requirements.
As long as there are available ports, you can switch in any combination
of inputs and outputs. It's not a one-to-one configuration like you find
in most matrix switches.
With the DKM FX switching system, a command and control room
setup can be extended through several rooms or buildings. A server room
houses servers and the main management switch, plus all the CATx
22
transmitters (A). CATx is used for the input because it is pre-existing in
the infrastructure.
The outputs on the DKM FX populated chassis (D) are then fiber
optic cables to the DKM FX receivers at each console (B) distributed
throughout another room (or to other buildings on campus). Using fiber
optic cabling increases distance, prevents ground loops, and corrects for
voltage differentials.
Video distribution comes from a single workstation, and commanders
(administrators) work at the keyboard/mouse workstations (C) while
viewing video on a quad screen videowall as well. In the setup above, you
can see that the DKM FX video extension incorporates a multi-head
application.

Black Box Case Studies:
Industrial
The Challenge:
A petroleum oil company needed a video and peripheral matrix switching
and extension system that enabled multiple users to access computers
and servers from multiple buildings across campus. Several buildings
housed high-end monitoring computer systems that needed to be
accessed by users in the main office building.
Users at the NOC in the main office building
can easily monitor and access computer
systems anywhere on campus.
The Solution:
After a site visit from and consultation
with Black Box project engineers
and product managers, the DKM FX
switching system was proposed. The
DKM FX system is comprised of the
appropriate hardware for this multiuser
application because it enables users to
connect and share target computers.
Additionally, since the DKM FX can
connect to fiber optic cable and CATx
cable at the same time through different
ports on the same chassis, the DKM FX
is ideal in an extension system that
needs to go between buildings on a
campus. The DKM FX system supports
fiber optic extension, which protects
against ground loops and lightning
strikes, and can be used between
buildings. The main building that housed
the Network Operations Center (NOC)
used standard CAT6 copper cabling.
The system distributed on this campus
was designed by Black Box specifically
for this client. Two of the many
advantages of the DKM FX system are
its flexibility and scalability. The system
of switches, cards, transmitters and
receivers, and chassis enable unique
configurations for each application
and client, and the configurations can
easily be planned to accommodate
the client’s growth.
In this setup, the 80-port DKM FX was
installed with a mix and match of 8-port
copper and fiber I/O cards. These cards
connected to DKM FX transmitters and
receivers across campus. Users at the
For more information and our online store, visit www.blackbox.fi.
NOC in the main office can now
select, view, and control any of the
computers across campus. Because
of the mission-critical nature of the
business (monitoring oil drilling and
extraction equipment), it was
recommended that the components
have failsafe power supplies to ensure
system redundancy. The multiple users
of this system can easily log into any
user station on campus to access the
computers there. From the NOC,
users can monitor, view, and control
computers, servers, and other computer
controlled systems attached to the DKM
FX system. Additionally, users can switch
among computers and buildings with
no delay and regardless of distance.

Give multiple users fast, reliable access
to high-quality, real-time digital video — plus a whole host of peripherals across
the enterprise — with the DKM FX HD Video
and Peripheral Matrix Switching system.
This chassis-based, modular crosspoint
switching system enables you and others to
switch and extend HD video, audio, and serial
data over extremely long distances. Use it in
any application where many users have to
interface with CPUs and other high-end AV
equipment supporting high-definition video.
Using non-blocking switch technology, the
DKM FX processes and routes DVI single-link
resolutions, including Full HD 1080p, with little
or no delay of video — even at screens far away
from the switching chassis itself.
What’s more, it not only supports DVI-D
digital video, but also VGA video and
connections to a wide array of peripherals,
including USB HID, USB 2.0, RS-232, and IR
devices, Wacom® tablets, and even legacy
PS/2 keyboards and mice.
It’s especially ideal for mission-critical
control/command rooms, as well as video
production or broadcasting applications where
HD video is everything. Many users can connect
their KVM consoles to various multimedia sources
(computer, CPUs, servers, etc.), either locally or in
a distant room or office via the switch.
And it’s very flexible. The DKM FX HD Video
and Peripheral Matrix Switch enables you to
configure HD KVM switching and DVI routing
exactly as you require. Mix and match fiber and
CATx ports through cards and SFPs plugged into
its slots. You’re not limited in any way.
With the switch, you get a controller card,
which has USB keyboard/mouse and DVI
monitor connectors for local KVM
administration; an RJ-45 port for interfacing
with your network and a serial port for control
via an external RS-232 device.
OS platform independent, the switch and its
controller card can be accessed by Windows®,
Linux®, and/or Mac OS® users.
Switches within milliseconds.
Users can switch seamlessly and almost
instantaneously with hotkey or on-screen
display (OSD) selections on the DKM FX HD
Video and Peripheral Matrix Switch. It takes just
milliseconds for this to happen (similar IP-based
types of solutions can take as long as eight
seconds to perform this action).

one playout device via DVI.
• In command and control room setups, multicast video and data
to receiver units between LCD display walls.
• Also for digital signage, use the ServSwitch Agility to switch between
multiple video sources.
• Media post-production suites become collaborative. Machine rooms
store the media assets and hardware, and can distribute them
throughout a post-production facility.
• Deliver rich media experiences in public spaces, such as museums or
libraries. The flexibility of the system makes reconfiguring your
implementation a snap.

network sharing applications, you will also need
an Agility iPATH Controller Unit (ACR1000A-CTL).
It includes a management suite for remotely and
securely managing the transmitter and receiver
units. Define new content channels, restrict and
enable access privileges, push control, and more.
Once you plug the controller into your
network, you can begin managing devices, users,
and channels The iPATH™ interface features
a useful on-screen dashboard that gives you a
current overview of the system. It is continually
refreshed so you always have the most up-todate system information.
Dual-head and dual-link video options
ServSwitch Agility single-head, single-link
units support DVI-D resolutions up to 1920 x
1200. The dual-head units support the same
DVI-D resolution per video channel, or they
support higher dual-link DVI-D resolutions
(on one channel) up to 2560 x 1600.
For high-bandwidth applications, the
ACR1002A-T and ACR1002A-R are the better
choice. With dual-link support, you can use
the Agility receivers with extra-large HD screens,
such as displays used for broadcasting, digital
film, or high-end graphics editing.
Single-target sharing
In this configuration, multiple users
can share a single remote computer. Users
can connect in three ways. View-only shows
only the video feed. In Share Mode, an open
connection is available for all users to use the
connected devices at the same time. In Exclusive
Mode, one user locks out the other users,
preventing them from viewing or sharing the
connection, with the exception of network
administrators.
Multicasting
This unique feature enables the Agility to
multicast video and audio over an IP network
to several receiving units. To prevent saturating
the network, when, for example, a receiver isn’t
set up to explicitly receive a multicast, an installed
network switch should feature Internet Group
Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping. This
prevents an IP switch from passing on multicast
data onto every port, even if it’s not part of
the Agility system. IGMP snooping reduces
the amount of traffic generated by Agility
transmitter units that are configured for
multicast operations, and prevent performance
degradation and wasted network bandwidth.
With the Agility and a network switch that
includes IGMP snooping, you can multicast
content to as many receivers as you want with
no distance limits (depending on the network).
This is an ideal configuration for digital signage
applications.

Multicasting video over a LAN:
Use the right switch
By Black Box Media Services
Layer 3 versus Layer 2
In KVM extension applications where you
want to distribute HD video across a network,
you need to use the right network switch.
Think of your network as a river of data
with a steady current of data moving smoothly
down the channel. All your network users are
like tiny tributaries branching off this river,
taking only as much water (bandwidth)
as they need to process data. When you start to
multicast video, data, and audio over the LAN,
those streams suddenly become the size of the
main river.
Unicasting is sending data from one
network device to another (point to point),
and usually Layer 2 switches easily support
these types of communications. But multicasting
is transmitting data from one network device to
multiple users. A Layer 2 switch sends the multicast
packets to every device and, if there are many
sources, the network will saturate because of
all the traffic.
Multicasting with Layer 3 switches is much more
efficient because it identifies the multicast packet
and sends it only to the intended receivers.
Additionally, Layer 3 switches with IGMP support
and IGMP querier, “know” who wants to receive
the multicast packet and who doesn’t. When a
receiving device wants to tap into a multicasting
stream, it responds to the multicast broadcast with
an IGMP report, the equivalent of saying, “I want to
connect to this stream.” The report is only sent in
the first cycle, initializing the connection between
the stream and receiving device. If the device was
previously connected to the stream, it sends a
For more information and our online store, visit www.blackbox.fi.
grafting request for removing the temporary block
on the unicast routing table. The switch can then
send the multicast packets to newly connected
members of the multicast group. Then, when a
device no longer wants to receive the multicast
packets, it sends a pruning request to the IGMPsupported switch, which temporarily removes
the device from the multicast group and stream.
Therefore, for multicasting, use routers or
Layer 3 switches that support the IGMP protocol.
Without this support, your network devices will
be receiving so many multicasting packets, they
will not be able to communicate with other devices
using different protocols, such as FTP. Plus, a
feature-rich, IGMP-supported Layer 3 switch gives
you the bandwidth control needed to send video
from multiple sources over a LAN.

DKM FX and FXC Proprietary Extension Application
Airport
Simplify complex system designs
and increase functionality.
No place in the world can be more unsettling or confusing
than an airport, not only for passengers but also for employees.
Increasing passenger traffic means increased monitoring, and
increased monitoring can lead to difficulties or discomfort in
the working environment that need to be addressed.
At Norway’s third largest airport, the operations center faced
a challenging work environment because the airport was expanding
its terminal and adding gates to accommodate the growing number
of passengers. Technical support staff experienced a warm and
crowded workplace as they monitored access control, fire
prevention, and general airport security.
In order to improve the staff’s environment and, at the same
time, make it easier for them to monitor the hardware platform
that was responsible for system management, IT decided to
backrack extenders. Using the DKM FX HD Video and Peripheral
Matrix Switching system enabled this organization to backrack
a mix of copper (CATx) and fiber transmitters in the data center
and place receivers in different rooms (using CATx) or different
buildings (using fiber). This modular matrix setup enabled multiple
users to easily access any computer system whether local or remote.
Additionally, the employees got a cooler, quieter workplace that
increased their job satisfaction and productivity.
At a different airport in Norway, the second largest, the technical
division needed to design a more efficient airport operations center
as well. In this case, the NOC is a little bit more compact — two
desks each with 12 monitors arrayed in two rows. A large-screen
monitor attached to a local PC can receive video from one of the
desktop computers. They, too, decided to backrack workstation
transmitters, but wanted to run everything over copper instead
of a mix of CATx and fiber cabling.
This airport opted for the DKM FX Compact HD Video and
Peripheral Matrix Switches. These chassis are smaller, but still provide
excellent matrix switching and extension capabilities within the
DKM FXC system.
These fully digital DKM matrix switch solutions offer switching,
extension, and distribution of video, KVM, USB, and audio signals
over copper with a maximum distance of 280 meters.
The system has a focus on redundancy operation combined
with instantaneous switching of high-resolution images.
At this airport’s NOC, all systems connected to Desk 1 and
Desk 2 had a dedicated screen to ensure video is present at all
times. One active screen duplicates the active system the team
needs to access, usually by using an attached keyboard and mouse.
The operator chooses the active system via a 12-button push panel.
As in the former configuration, the workplace is cooler, quieter,
and leads to improved functionality.

Connectivity to Virtual Machines.
The InvisaPC™ bridges the gap between IP-based KVM extension
and switching applications and access to virtual machines. Use an
InvisaPC receiver as a direct portal to virtual machines, especially
Microsoft RDP 7.1 and RDP 8, to redirect digital video, USB keyboard
and mouse, audio and vUSB to distant users over IP.
The InvisaPC requires a host with an operating system and associated
Client Access Licenses (CALs). However, the InvisaPC doesn’t require any
drivers or software to be installed on computers. This hardware-based
solution is plug-and-play, directly connecting to the network interface
right out of the box.
Traditional Point-to-Point Extension over IP.
With the InvisaPC solution, computers are removed from the desktop
and are relocated within a secure, climate-controlled equipment room
connected to an InvisaPC transmitter. Each user has his/her own keyboard, monitor, mouse, and peripheral setup connected to an InvisaPC
receiver delivering a high performance real time experience. It’s just like
running any application on a local CPU without any performance issues.

Virtual Desktop Computing
The clients and the back-racked servers are connected via standard
LAN or WAN infrastructure. The bandwidth requirements of the system
are very low. For example, with the InvisaPC, transmitting a 1080p
movie only requires 35-Mbps bandwidth. The low bandwidth
requirements even allow an extension over the Internet with very low
latency or sharing even corporate networks without utilizing too much
bandwidth.
Moving to cloud computing with a zero client device like the InvisaPC
enables IT managers to make their department more flexible and
responsive.
Soft migration from real to virtual machines.
Connected to a Virtual Machine, one InvisaPC receiver supports up
to 16 RDP, RDP7.1/8 targets. The same receiver can also be connected
with up to 16 InvisaPC transmitters/servers. That way each InvisaPC
receiver supports switching between 32 soft and hard targets. The
settings can be copied from one receiver to another to ease the setup,
while user profiles may be configured on the receiver to restrict targets.
Multiple receivers may be used to create a matrix switch via the
network, too without any management requirements.
The InvisaPC solution provides the ability of a smooth migration from
real desktops towards a virtual server landscape. The system provides
integrated support for back-racked PCs and virtual desktops. In particular the design addresses applications with a mix of both worlds — without changing the front end for the user. Desktop virtualization is
deployed through a PC or server that hosts multiple virtual desktops.
The workstations can be running Mac®, Linux®, or Microsoft® operating systems using an InvisaPC transmitter. Using an InvisaPC transmitter,
the system supports digital video, digital audio, and USB peripheral
extension across IP networks. It is standards-based, so there are no
upgrades to equipment, software licensing, or remote management —
plus, no time-consuming IT visits.
Adapts to growing needs.
Real cost savings.
InvisaPC can easily be adapted to meet your requirements. Start with
a small switching system that enables one user access to different
computers and virtual machines. Gradually, the system can be expanded
into a switching matrix. Future management software will also allow
larger switching matrices, as well as integration into existing network
authentication systems such as LDAP or Active Directory.
InvisaPC optimizes cost-effective deployments by basing the scale of
the deployment on the solution need. It can be scaled from branch
offices to large enterprise corporations. Plus, lower power consumption
translates into lower utility bills for you.
Switched Extension.
InvisaPC
Flexible remote access ensures a convenient working
environment.
The clients operate extremely quietly — no fan noise to distract users
from their work. The power consumption is about 3 watts per unit
which, compared to a desktop PC, is 100 times more energy efficient.
The InvisaPC client, with its space-saving design, can even be mounted
behind the monitor screen.

As long as you have an IP link between your
CPU and workstation, the DTX provides secure,
high-quality connectivity. USB peripherals
attached to the DTX at your workstation operate
as if they’re directly connected to the CPU, even
if the CPU itself is continents away.
Multiplatform, multimedia KVM
extension.
ServSwitch DTX works with just about
any computer and operating system software.
As a KVM extender, the DTX provides complete
hardware KVM extension — no startup and
configuration software is needed. When the
receiver powers up in a point-to-point
application, the system automatically establishes
a connection between the transmitter and
receiver. To view DTX system configuration,
simply access the receiver’s on-screen display
(OSD).
The DTX displays 24-bit, 60-fps color video
and supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1200.
In addition, it supports DVI and VGA for
universal video compatibility, plus it delivers
CD-quality sound for robust audio extension.
For demanding multimedia applications, just
connect the DTX to either Fast Ethernet or
Gigabit Ethernet.
The ServSwitch DTX Single-Head
components (DTX5001) support in-line
conversion of video signals. In other words,
if you input digital signals, you can output
analog signals and vice versa. The DTX5001
supports DVI-D or VGA signals, as well as
USB 2.0 and audio.
The dual-head DTX (DTX5002) supports
DVI-D only, no conversion. Dual-head receivers
enable you to use two DVI-I monitors at a
remote workstation. It also supports USB
and audio signals.
The ServSwitch DTX Control appliance
is a KVM management system that enables
matrix switching, control, and authentication
capabilities. With IT systems being spread
out through the use of virtual data center,
distributed and cloud computing, and KVMoIP
systems such as the DTX, keeping track of
servers, data resources, and users is getting
complex. Management systems enable you to
compile a single list of IP resources and a single
list of users and their access rights. With a
management system, you can add, edit, or
eliminate users from a single appliance instead
of using a checklist and going through multiple
switches and logins.

Keep your communications secure.
With the ServSwitch DTX, you can place
your CPU in a safe location to protect it from the
dust and vibrations of an industrial environment,
and you can secure it from would-be thieves
by locking it away in a cabinet or control room.
Furthermore, the DTX encrypts media streams
for Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connections over
a TCP/IP link. For more advanced control, just
connect a networked computer running
emulation software to the receiver. Using the
extender’s password-protected serial interface
menu, you can then perform administrative
and maintenance tasks for both the receiver
and transmitter.
Use it point-to-point, too.
You can also use the ServSwitch DTX in a
point-to-point configuration as you would any
other copper extender. Maximum distance is
100 m between the CPU and the KVM
workstation.

A common mistake made by small to mid-size organizations
looking for system management solutions is to prioritize cost
over value. When exploring KVM technology, it’s important to
plan for the future. KVM and switching systems are flexible and
scalable, so they can grow with your organization — but you
need to know what to plan for. What accessories do you need
for your switch? What features do your switches need to have,
not just for installation today, but for months and years down
the road? The last thing SMBs need are separate KVM
components that don’t work together or systems that can’t be
extended. Finally, never underestimate tech support. Having
someone to talk to 24/7 before and after your purchase is key,
and so is having the engineers testing compatibility and
qualifying components to make sure they all play well together!

Small-Medium Business/Server Room
Reduce clutter and save space in the server room
with rackmountable KVM console trays.
By Dawn Patton Mangine
KVM tray technology
Fits any display rack.
On the ServTray Complete family of
KVM trays, we have moved from a variety
of rear bracket sizes to one adjustable
length. This universal rail rear bracket size
fits racks with depths of 23.7" (60.2 cm)
to 45.3" (115 cm). This simplifies ordering
for you!
Open monitor, closed door.
What we do that others don’t.
From the solid construction of our KVM
trays to unique features like LEDs on the
front panel and integrated KVM switching,
Black Box’s KVM trays are miles ahead of
the competition.
Nothing reduces clutter in a server
room like KVM trays that are 1U high,
and mount in a cabinet or rack. Here are
some of the features that set our KVM
trays apart.
Dual-rail KVM tray technology enables
the monitor drawer and the keyboard/
mouse drawer to move independently
of each other. It makes it easy to leave the
monitor visible even when a server cabinet
is closed and the keyboard/mouse drawer
is fully retracted. Black Box has added
switching controls to the monitor bezel
that can be used to control an attached
switch without pulling open the keyboard/
mouse drawer for even more space-saving
benefits.
Additionally, the dual rails provide a
great monitoring environment without
disturbing your cooling system.
You asked for it.
Our latest KVM trays, the ServView V
KVM Drawer and ServView V KVM Drawer
with Widescreen were designed based on
feedback we have received from some
of our customers.
On the front panel of the tray, there
is an LED panel, which helps you locate
the drawer when it’s closed in a darkened
data center. The tray only takes up 1U of
rack space, and it features the dual rail
technology described earlier.
We added front-panel controls for
switching, so if you choose a model with
an embedded KVM switch, you can use
the buttons on the monitor bezel without
pulling out the keyboard. Additionally,
the top of the keyboard tray features a
hideaway connection for USB wireless
devices, such as RF- or Bluetooth®
supported keyboards and mice. You can
wirelessly access your attached targets,
without even opening the cabinet door!
Another feature is the front-panel USB
port, which provides crash cart access
(KVT100A). If your keyboard or Glidepoint®
mouse quit on you, simply use this port to
attach a passthrough pointing device.
Finally, the widescreen version supports
1920 x 1080 resolutions and DVI
connections — two firsts in the data center.
High-resolution support.
This type of monitor uses thin-film
transistor (TFT) technology to improve
image quality, resulting in higher
resolutions, better image contrast,
and addressability. All our KVM trays
support TFT LCD panel monitors.
Wide viewing angles.
The screens on our KVM trays are
viewable from nearly any angle. Because
of the size of our screens, from 15" to 19"
viewing angles vary from 140° x 120° all
the way up to 160° x 160°, so you don’t
always have to be standing directly in
front of the monitor to see what’s
happening on it.
36
A USB hideaway at the top of the keyboard/mouse tray enables you to
install a wireless USB keyboard and mouse (RF or Bluetooth).

Crash Cart Adapter
• Gives you a fast, easy way to log in to
a server or computer to troubleshoot
or service a system after a crash.
• Handheld adapter plugs into the
server on one end and your laptop
on the other.
• No drivers to install on the target
computer.
• Includes software for viewing server
video on your laptop, without having
to reboot or change the server in any
way.
• Scale the video window as needed
and even take a screen snapshot.
• Works with Windows® and Mac®
OS X laptops.
• Standard Warranty — 1 Year
• Extended Warranty — 1 Year or 3 Years
Remedying a server problem in a room
without a local user console used to mean
wheeling in the ”crash cart,” a rolling cart loaded
with a keyboard, monitor, mouse, and a bunch
of connecting cables for on-the-spot computer
access.
But with the USB Laptop Console Crash
Cart Adapter with integrated cabling, you have
a compact and easier way to get immediate,
BIOS-level access to your server.
Despite its name, there’s no actual ”cart”
involved. In this case, the cart is the laptop that
you carry to the server and, using the adapter,
plug in to obtain quick server access.
Connect to the video port of any server in
trouble to perform emergency system recovery,
carry out routine system maintenance, or do
whatever server task you like — just as if
you had a full KVM console with a VGA monitor
connected to the server itself.
The fully hot-pluggable adapter requires no
external power (it gets it all from the connected
system or laptop), making it truly portable and
easy to use.
How it works.
Emulating a USB keyboard and mouse,
the USB Laptop Console Crash Cart Adapter
and its software enable you to interact with the
target server as a window on your laptop.
For server connections, the adapter has
built-in VGA video and USB keyboard/mouse
connectors. On the laptop side, it features
a high-speed (480-Mbps) USB Mini Type B
connector with a detachable USB cable for
server-to-laptop links. For older PS/2 style
keyboards (the adapter doesn’t support PS/2
mice), there’s a passive PS/2 to USB adapter
included.
Versatile video scaling options.
There’s no need to load any drivers or
software on the server — all the software goes
on your laptop.
And it’s no ordinary terminal emulation
software. The adapter’s software gives you
real-time video scaling so you can always see
the entire screen, even on small laptop displays.
Enlarge the window to use all pixels of your
laptop (with or without the laptop taskbar seen),
or shrink to view another application next to it.
Video adjustments also include sample phase
sharpening and video noise filtering.
What’s more, upon rebooting the connected
system, the software interface gives you
command line interface and BIOS-level visibility
from start to finish.
You can even take screen snapshots (as
PNG or JPEG files) for system analysis later.
For more information and our online store, visit www.blackbox.fi.
Possible Applications:
• P erforming maintenance in server rooms
without a lot of space, where you can’t
fit a crash cart or install a KVM console
tray in the rack or cabinet.
• C
lassrooms where the server or CPUs are
stored in the back of the room and you
need quick access to diagnose a problem
while students are actively working at
their computers.
• T roubleshooting ATMs, kiosks, and retail
PoS/PoP systems in stores and other
areas heavily trafficked by the public.
• C
onfiguring digital signage in real time
at the screen, away from the controlling
PC (just plug the adapter into the player).
• A
ny field application where you need to
interact with target computers.

Save space, increase efficiency.
Designed for heavy-duty use, the ServTray Complete can replace
that bulky local workstation you’ve been using. Just slide out the drawer
and open the flat-screen monitor.
The ServTray Complete features a full-sized 105-key keyboard — no
trying to type on tiny keys too small for your fingertips. The touchpad
includes an ergonomic hand rest.
When you’re done, simply slide it back in place. The front panel
conceals the unit when not in use.
Choose the size that’s right for you.
The ServTray Complete can accommodate switching modules with 4, 8
or 16 ports or a 1-port connection module.
Once you’ve selected your switch module, choose the cables for
4-, 8- and 16-port models. The single-port model comes complete with
cables, so you don’t need to add them.
Easy mounting.
The ServTray Complete includes a universal rear rail kit, which mounts
the ServTray on the front and rear rails with a depth of 23.7" to 45.3" — that’s rail depth, not total cabinet depth, so if you have extra-deep
cabinets, the ServTray will still fit as long as the rail depth is within limits.
Both ServTray and its switch module are powered through an
autosensing 100- to 240-VAC power supply that plugs right into the
nearest power strip or PDU.

KV9204A: rear
These basic KVM switches are ideal for SMBs
ready to expand into multiple server management
KVM systems using native cable. The ServSwitch
EC KVM switches are very cost effective because
they work with PS/2 and/or USB consoles and
servers, making them perfect for basic desktop
switching.
Additionally, the ServSwitch EC series is ideal
for areas where you have a limited amount of
space. The 1U-high ECs can be used on a desktop
or mounted in a rack or cabinet. (Brackets are
included with the 8- and 16-port models.) To
save more space, the KVM circuitry is concentrated
in a single connector at the server end. This way,
you have fewer cables to install when making
server connections.
Because the ServSwitch EC is plug-and-play,
you can add or subtract servers almost as quickly
as you can plug and unplug cables.
Switch between servers using front-panel
buttons or hotkeys. Or with autoscan, the
ServSwitch EC will scan and switch between
servers, one by one, at an interval that you
determine. When autoscan detects any keyboard
or mouse activity, it suspends the scanning until
activity stops, and then resumes with the next
computer in sequence.
The front panel includes port LEDs, which
light with the corresponding active port when
you switch between servers.
In addition, all models feature on-screen
display. Through this OSD, you can assign
14-character server names that make sense
to you, view the connection status by port,
and lock servers from unauthorized users.
What’s more, the ServSwitch EC stores
system settings and name entries in nonvolatile
memory, and saves your keyboard settings for
each server, restoring them when you come
back to that machine.

The ServSwitch EC are for applications where you have a limited
amount of space. The 1U, 8-port or 2U, 16-port DVI switches can be
placed at a desktop without hogging space or mounted in a 19" cabinet
or rack. As with the other EC switches, to save more space, the KVM
interface is concentrated in a single connector at the server end. This
way, you have fewer cables to install when making server connections.
This ServSwitch EC steps up the video resolution, giving users sharp,
clear DVI single-link signals. With video enhancement technology that
ensures superb quality and resolutions up to 1920 x 1200, these DVI
switches are DDC2B compatible. Use them with digital monitors without
worrying about delay or skew.
Switching is managed with front-panel buttons or hotkeys. The switches
also have autoscan to scan and switch between servers, one by one, at an
interval that you determine. When autoscan detects any keyboard or mouse
activity, it suspends the scanning until activity stops, and then resumes with
the next computer in sequence.
System settings are stored in nonvolatile memory, preventing an accidental
power outage from wiping out stored information. The ServSwitch EC
switches save your keyboard settings for each server and restore them
when you come back to that machine.

ServSwitch CX Uno
KV04U-REM
KV0161A
• Standard Warranty — 2 Years
• Extended Warranty — 1 Year or 3 Years
Small size, big delivery.
Less than half the width of a standard 19"
mountable device, the ServSwitch CX Uno
supports up to 31 cascaded servers in 1U of
rack space. Added to a KVM drawer like the
ServView V KVM Tray (KVT517A) or ServTray
Complete (KVT127E), it’s an ideal solution for
dense server rack environments.
The CX series is a step up from the ServSwitch
EC series of switches. First of all, the CX is a
multiuser KVM switch, making it ideal for
growing organizations. Second, the CX units
are still economical in size, making them perfect
for desktops or for rackmounting in a server
room — even, as mentioned, cascading with a
KVM tray for even greater server management
options.
Remote access option via CATx.
With the Remote Access Modules for the CX
Uno for PS/2 or USB (KV04-REM or KV04U-REM
series), a remote user has access to the attached
servers from more than 300 meters away using a
single CATx cable.
Remote control option.
Like all CX series switches, the CX Uno can
be switched remotely via RS-232 commands.
You can also synchronize the switching of multiple
units, enabling support for multi-head video.
Note:
• Set up CATx-based local and remote KVM
access to 8 or 16 CPUs or servers — switch
from a KVM console up to 300 meters
away.
• Supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 at
60 Hz and offers DDC EDID display support.
• Slim and compact. Connect to as many
as 31 cascaded servers in 1U of rack space.
• Switch remotely using RS-232 commands
and set up synchronized switching of
multiple units — great for multi-head
video applications.

One Software Solution to Rule Them All
Wizard.NET
Wizard.NET is a professional enterprise
management suite that delivers total IP
device control, management, and connectivity.
Black Box KVM over IP (KVMoIP) devices
provide the ability to control large numbers
of host computers from remote locations.
When controlling larger groups of dispersed
computers using numerous KVMoIP devices,
the major challenge becomes one of
management — retaining active control over
a complex mix of devices, host computers, and
registered users. Wizard.NET was developed as
a common interface to help you remotely
46
manage any number of KVMoIP devices
together with all of their connected host
computers and the access rights of the users.
Wizard.NET is delivered as a software
solution only, and operates as a server
application running on a system that can be
completely separate from any of the KVMoIP
devices — it merely requires an IP network
or Internet connection. Wizard.NET uses an
intuitive HTML user interface, which means
that registered users can access and control it
remotely using a standard Web browser. Like
all Wizard KVMoIP products, Wizard.NET
employs high specification security techniques
to ensure that only authorized users may gain
access.
Wizard.NET has two main modules, the
manager and the connector. The manager
module is accessible only to managers and
administrators. It is where the details about
all connected devices, hosts, and users are
configured and stored. The connector
module can be used by registered users to
enable quick access to all of the targets for
which they have access rights. Targets may be
devices, hosts, or device groups as appropriate.

The ServSwitch™ CX KVM switches with IP
are compatible with all major computer platforms;
connect via lightweight, inexpensive twisted-pair
cable; and enable you to access servers across any
IP network, either a private intranet or the Internet.
Whether you choose the CX Uno or CX Quad
depends on the number of users you need to give
access to simultaneously. The CX Uno connects
one local user to up to 16 servers over the IP
network. Additionally, you can cascade the CX
Uno units to access up to 256 servers.
The CX Quad IP connects four IP users, plus
one local user, to up to 16 servers, with the ability
to cascade units up to 128 servers. The CX Uno
with IP also enables you to access servers across
any IP network using a Java-enabled Web
browser or VNC client. Additionally, the CX
Quad IP supports 16 serial console connections
using the KV1407A server access modules
(SAMs).
Additionally, switches support Display Data
Channel (DDC) emulation. DDC enables your
monitor to communicate with the attached CPUs’
video cards and configure the CPUs’ video drivers
automatically at boot up.
You can set up the ServSwitch CX switches
behind the security of your network firewall, and
it also has the security features it needs to be safe
on its own. These enterprise-grade KVM switches
use AES128 bit encryption and RSA2048
authentication, ensuring your control system
remains secure at all times. You can also configure
eight separate users internally with unique access
privileges, all of which are stored only within the
switch.
Connect user stations and servers via
lightweight and inexpensive CAT5, CAT5e, or
CAT6 UTP cable — no bulky KVM cables needed.
UTP cable provides more distance than KVM
cable to connect the servers. Use SAMs to
provide keyboard, video, mouse, and speaker
connections. Servers may be placed 9.8 meters
from the switch.
The ServSwitch CX switches feature Ecopulse
circuitry, which powers down unused circuits
when they are not required. Over the life of the
switches, this reduction of power saves significant
resources.

To ensure maximum security, Wizard.NET
does not retain any passwords within its
database for the devices that it controls.
Instead, a valid password is used once only
to gain access to each device during the
“acquire” stage, when Wizard.NET establishes a
Secure Ticket with the device. In all subsequent
accesses to each device, the relevant secure
ticket is used to gain access.
Wizard.NET works with ServSwitch Wizard

Small-Medium Business/Server Room | IP Access Technology
Combine the advantages and benefits of remote
access software and extension technology.
By Black Box Media Services
IP Access Technology
IP access technology extends keyboard,
video, and mouse (KVM) signals, digital
video, digital audio, and USB peripherals
from any computer or server over TCP/IP
via a local area network (LAN), wide-area
network (WAN), or Internet connection.
This technology uses existing network
infrastructure and supports local and
remote users, usually simultaneously.
IP access technology works in diverse
hardware environments and is ideal for
managing multilocation data centers
and branch offices.
These capabilities translate into real
savings for companies having to deal
with the proliferation of servers in many
offices, particularly for corporations and
government agencies required to deliver
24/7 uptime and real-time access to
mission-critical servers every day of
the year.
IP access and KVM-over-IP (KVMoIP)
solutions combine the advantages of
remote access software with the benefits
of switching and extension technology.
Like most KVM switches, IP access
products don’t require any software to
be loaded on the host computers. They
interface directly with the keyboard,
monitor, and mouse connectors of the
host computer or KVM switch. Circuitry
within the KVMoIP device digitizes the
incoming video signal and processes it
into digital data that is communicated
to a viewer program running on a remote
client computer over a LAN/WAN or the
public Internet.
By addressing network issues from a
remote locaion, you can simply manage
issues from your desk, even save yourself
the hassle of traveling to a site in the
middle of the night. Use a browser-based
connection, even a smartphone or tablet
computer or PDA, to reboot or administer
a roomful of servers remotely — a real
convenience.
IP access solutions that feature virtual
media technology take that convenience
further. They enable a remote user to
effortlessly move files from a mass storage
device — a USB flash drive for example —
from your location to the computer on
which you’re working. Cost savings are
realized through reduced downtime and
less travel. Plus, in some cases, there’s no
need to replace existing KVM switches
with proprietary ones to get a KVMoIP
server-control solution.
Black Box IP access solutions enable you
to access remote servers at the BIOS level,
which is important when you need to
troubleshoot from off site, and don’t want
to dispatch a technician. Install or recover
software applications and install OS
patches from your location anywhere in
the world. Plus, this BIOS-level control is
possible regardless of the server’s brand
or model and even works if the operating
system is down.

C
Madrid, Spain
Berlin, Germany
Therefore, IP access technology will continue to evolve, providing
companies with state-of-the-art yet cost-effective ways of monitoring
and managing.
IP-enabled KVM switches, such as the ServSwitch CX Quad IP
(KV4161A), give multiple users in multiple locations simultaneous
access to the systems they need to effectively do their work. In
a configuration such as shown here, a small office in Berlin (A)
can manage a larger office in Madrid. This cost-effective system
requires no specialized equipment or software. The IP-enabled
switch is connected to servers using CATx cables, and accessed via
a local-area network (LAN) or wide-area network (WAN). Users
at PCs (B) go to a Web browser, enter their IP-address and related
log-in information, and can instantly see and control remote
servers, and can view data stored there. Most switches support
multiplatform operating systems. As the organization expands,
the number of users can grow simply by daisychaining switches.
The CX Quad IP can enable control of up to 256 servers!
These switches enable local users and a remote user
simultaneous access. The system administrator (C) manages
the servers via remote access IP technology.

Easier connections than ever!
Simple server selection.
Add remote management over IP.
The ServSwitch™ CX enables up to four users
to connect to the switch via CAT5, CAT5e, or
CAT6 UTP cable — no bulky KVM cables to deal
with.
In addition, you can mix and match different
kinds of servers on the same CX switch. Just run
CATx cables from the switch’s server ports to the
Server Access Modules (SAMs) that connect to
your servers. Simply choose the appropriate SAM
for each server.
What’s more, you can connect the ServSwitch
CX to either a PS/2 or USB keyboard and
mouse — it includes both connector types.
Whether you’re working at a user station or
the local analog console port in the server room,
you can select a server to access and control via
on-screen menus or hotkeys. On-screen menus
make server selection simple because you can
give each server a name that makes sense to you.
For even greater versatility, you can cascade
this switch with its IP-enabled version, the
ServSwitch CX with IP (KV1416A-R2,
KV1424A-R2). This gives you remote server
management over the IP network.
Sight and sound support.
The ServSwitch CX provides super-sharp
resolutions up to 1900 x 1200 for all users up
to 50 meters away. At maximum distance we
recommend to use no more than 1280 x 1024.
By choosing a SAM with audio, you add
support for stereo speakers, enabling you to
hear audible alerts.

The ServSwitch™ CX with IP helps manage
your enterprise network. Access and switch
remotely between servers over a private intranet
or over the Internet.
The ServSwitch CX with IP can be installed
behind your network firewall; it also has the
robust security features it needs to be safe on
its own. Sophisticated 128-bit public/private
key protection locks the switch tight. Two-tier
password protection — administrative and nonadministrative — adds another layer of security.
Connect user stations and servers via
lightweight and inexpensive CATx UTP cable,
which provides more distance than KVM cable—
you can connect two user stations up to 300
meters from the switch. At the server end,
a SAM provides keyboard, video, mouse, and
speaker connections. Servers may be placed
up to 50 meters from the switch.

to ask.
1. How many users to how many computers? What kind of connectors (PS/2, USB, DVI)?
In order to get the right KVM switch, you need to know how many ports the switch should have and what kind of devices it’s going
to be connected to. When viewing KVM devices, think about how your switching needs will grow. If specialized HIDs are required,
you need the right emulation. Do you need to switch audio, serial, microphone?
2. What kind of cabling, CATx (also called proprietary or native cabling) or fiber optic (single- or multimode)?
Think about the distance requirements for your KVM switches. For shorter distances, CATx cabling is usually sufficient. But for
remote management, or extension over long distances, fiber optic cabling is better.
3. Do you want to manage switches remotely using an IP network?
The best option for remote management and high-end video extension is to use your organization’s IP network.

on another, print documents from a third, and
use yet another USB peripheral on the fourth.
True USB emulation switching ensures that
the full characteristics of the connected
keyboard and mouse are distributed to every
system. Earlier USB KVM switches relied upon a
standard keyboard and mouse template to
tell each computer system how to deal with
the connected peripherals. With this switch, the
“real” profiles are presented to every connected
system, so specialized keyboards and mice are
fully supported.

international standardized process for information technology
security evaluation, validation, and certification.
The ServSwitch Secure Switches with USB and DVI or VGA
are evaluated to most current protection profile requiring
Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance to Level 2+ (EAL2+).
The Common Criteria scheme is supported by the National
Security Agency through the National Information Assurance
Program (NIAP).
TEMPEST-Secure KVM Switches
TEMPEST testing, while classified, is regarded as a process
that assesses the port-to-port isolation required for certain
KVM switches. A TEMPEST approval means the necessary
isolation is achieved and qualified. Additionally, the threat of
data linking by various covert electromagnetic eavesdropping
mechanisms has been evaluated and found to be secure.
The TEMPEST designation is often required by military
organizations. TEMPEST, as a security standard, pertains
to technical security countermeasures, standards, and
instrumentation that prevent or minimize the exploitation
of vulnerable data communications equipment by technical
surveillance or eavesdropping.
For 2 or 4 ports, with USB and DVI-I or VGA, the
ServSwitch™ Secure KVM Switches with USB provide control
and separation of up to four PCs connected to secure and
non-secure networks through just one keyboard, monitor,
and mouse.
• High port-to-port electrical isolation, which facilitates data separation (RED/BLACK). Channel-to-channel

channel-to-channel crosstalk, and software tools and applications cannot be used to access any connected computer from another connected computer.
• Switches are permanently hard wired, preventing access
from one CPU to the others or access from one network
to others.
• External tamper-evident seals make it easy to spot
attempted tampering.
• Users can safely switch among as many as four
computers operating at different classification levels.
• Unidirectional flow of keyboard and mouse data means the computer cannot leak data along K/M signaling
channels.
• USB host controller erases entire RAM at each channel switchover. This prevents residual data from remaining
in the channel after a channel change and being
transferred to another computer.
• Only keyboard and mouse devices can be enumerated at the keyboard and mouse ports. Any other USB peripheral connected will be inhibited from operating, preventing the upload or download of unauthorized data.
The ServSwitch Secure Switches with USB surpass the
security profiles of most other KVM switches because they
have received approvals and certifications in both testing
standards.

Black Box Case Studies:
Secure Switching
Military
The Challenge:
As the need for security has grown, Black Box has made it a priority to address
the concerns of customers for whom security is the first priority. Whether it’s
biometric products or remote monitoring equipment, we have striven to stay
at the forefront of secure product development.
Some of our biggest customers have been military and governmental security
officers who have brought their needs to our attention. (Due to the confidential
nature of their posts, we are unable to identify them by name.) In the realm of
KVM switching, developing a truly secure switch has been Black Box’s goal for
some time now. With the line of ServSwitch™ Secure KVM Switches with USB,
we are finally able to bring to the market products that meet and exceed security
needs at the local, state, and federal levels.
Security officers know that Black Box
is the place to turn to meet their
secure switching needs.
The Solution:
The KVM switching technology concerns
of the security market are fairly
straightforward. They are looking for
USB keyboard and mouse support,
USB CAC reader support, digital video
support, and TEMPEST and Common
Criteria Evaluation Assurance (EAL)
certification. Switches that have been
previously available either do not meet
the correct security criteria or do not
perform well enough to attach to
mission critical equipment.
Most of the available technology in
the market was security-tested based
on what was commercially available.
Exceptions had been made both on
security accreditation and overall quality.
Black Box has engineered KVM switches
specifically for this market. They pass
all security criteria testing and are of
high quality.
According to one of our customers who
is familiar with security issues, Black Box
switches provide the highest level of
isolation available in a desktop switch.
Some of his switches are a few years old,
and others he has had to retire due only
to the fact that the computer technology
has developed (into USB and DVI
capabilities, for example). Fortunately,
Black Box has been able to develop
secure switches with DVI capabilities
for this client.
His current dependence on the previous
line of ServSwitch Secure products is
being augmented with a switch that
includes a port for a common access card
(CAC) reader — the SWx009A-USB-EAL
series, with USB and VGA. These twoand four-port switches have undergone
TEMPEST and EAL2+ testing to make
them the most secure switches available.
TEMPEST is vital for areas where
physical security is either not possible
or limited. Electronic eavesdropping is
a huge problem when dealing with
sensitive data and user credentials.
By replicating common attack methods,
security personnel have found them
to be effective for gaining sensitive
information.
When equipment is on a vehicle or
deployed in an active zone, use of
For more information and our online store, visit www.blackbox.fi.
TEMPEST-rated equipment is a must
when sensitive data is involved. It can
be a user’s only line of protection.
This design is used primarily to protect
data between various security levels of
networks. EAL2+ is typically used in
environments where multiple physical
security layers are already in place.
In military and government IT setups,
the most common segregation between
secure and non-secure networks is RED/
BLACK: the separation between
non-classified Internet protocol router
networks (NIPRNet) and secret Internet
protocol router networks (SIPRNet). This
level of segregation applies to anyone
who has secret security clearance and
also works on the public Internet. He or
she would be working on two computers
with different network credentials.
A security officer’s concern would be
that data signals are present as crosstalk
and can be recovered on the non-secure
workstation, thereby violating security
barriers. Black Box secure switches
prevent this.

Threats/Solutions
1. Prevent data leaking between
ports and to the outside world.
Threat: Microprocessor malfunction or
unanticipated software bugs cause data
to flow between ports.
Solution: Unidirectional keyboard and mouse
data flow is enforced by hardware “data
diodes” so data isolation doesn’t rely on
software integrity. This makes it impossible
for the computer to send data along the
keyboard and mouse signaling channel. This
advanced design also ensures data isolation
through hardware and prevents the keyboard
and mouse interfaces from becoming covert
computer-to-computer signaling channels
because of software holes or unanticipated
bugs.
In addition, keyboard and mouse devices
can only be enumerated at the keyboard and
mouse ports. Any other USB peripherals, such
as a USB thumb drive, will be inhibited from
operating, preventing any uploading or
downloading of data.
66
Threat: Physical proximity between ports
enables data leakage.
Solution: Isolation is improved by placing
the red and black ports at the opposite
edges of the switch.
Threat: Accidental port switching.
Solution: Locked-down operation disables
all keyboard hotkey and mouse switching
functions in both software and hardware
so that data corruption can’t inadvertently
cause an unanticipated channel change.
The only way to change the channels is
with the front-panel keys. There is only one
button per channel, so channel selection is
clear. Color-coded visual feedback confirms
the channel selection.
Threat: Signaling by shorting the power supply
or loading the power.
Solution: Each port is independently powered
by its USB port. Shorting the power supply on
one port will not cause the power on the
other ports to be switched off. The shared
keyboard, mouse, and monitor circuitry are
powered by the power supply. The lack of a
common power supply minimizes electronic
signaling.
Threat: Detection of signals on one computer
by monitoring for crosstalk (leakage) signals
on another computer.
Solution: Minimum crosstalk separation of 60 dB
provided between signals from one computer
and input or I/O signals to another. There are
no connections to sensitive analog inputs,
such as computer microphone ports.
Microphone circuitry enables sensitive
recording of small analog signals. Even very
low crosstalk levels could be recorded and
act as a means by which a non-selected
computer could read data being sent to
another computer.
Threat: Timing analysis attacks (looking at
what happens on one port to determine
data flow patterns on another).
Solution: Only one computer is connected
at a time to any shared circuitry. Links are
unidirectional, preventing timing analysis.

Secure KVM Switching
The ServSwitch Secure KVM Switches come
with a range of important security features,
making them ideal in military and government
applications. Altogether, they surpass the security
profiles of competitors’ KVM switches. Black Box
switches are TEMPEST approved (except
SW2008A-USB-EAL and SW4008-USB-EAL),
and most of them exceed EAL2+ certification
requirements
Common Criteria is an international
standardized process for information technology
security evaluation, validation, and certification.
The Common Criteria scheme is supported by
the National Security Agency through the
National Information Assurance Program (NIAP).
The ServSwitch Secure KVM Switches with
USB provide control and separation of up to
four PCs connected to secure and non-secure
networks through just one keyboard, monitor,
and mouse. Users can safely switch among as
many as four computers operating at different
classification levels without worry.

ServSwitch Secure KVM Switch
Threat: Electromagnetic emissions.
Solution: Special low emissions cables are used
to minimize radiated electromagnetic signal
leakage. Filtered power connections minimize
emissions down the power lines.
2.Prevent data from being stored in
the device.
Threat: Data transfer by means of common
storage or common RAM.
Solution: Shared circuitry and the keyboard
and mouse are powered down at each
channel change to clear all volatile memory
of any previous connections. This erases
the entire RAM, preventing residual data
from remaining in the channel and being
transferred to another computer. In addition,
the USB host controller and the shared USB
peripherals are also powered down, reset, and
re-enumerated. This ensures no residual data
transfer.
3. Prevent electronic snooping. Threat: Subversive snooping by detecting
electromagnetic radiation emitted from
the equipment.
Solution: The shielded metal case features
double shielding in critical areas and a low
emissions profile to thwart eavesdropping.
Threat: Physically tampering with the switch.
Solution: The switch is designed with tamper
proof seals to be fitted over the countersunk
screws.

• Standard Warranty — 1 Year
• Extended Warranty — 1 Year or 3 Years
The ServSwitch™ 4Site provides control and real-time monitoring for up
to four PCs from one console with a keyboard, video, and mouse. This classic
four-port KVM switch also features simultaneous monitoring of up to four different
computer video sources on a single screen. Two models, the 4Site II and the 4Site
Flex, have slightly different capabilities, with the 4Site Flex being more advanced.
The two most important differences in the 4Site models are that the Flex supports
High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) transmission and offers an
additional viewing mode, Windows (Win) Mode.
The ServSwitch 4Site Flex gives you true USB emulation for controlling
four servers from one USB keyboard and mouse. The switch offers fluid video
performance at full refresh rates without frame dropping, perfect for movies
and animated content. HDCP support means the digital data will not be interrupted
between the source and the display. This makes video playing during conferences
smoother, and is a boon in mission-critical areas that need to be constantly
monitored. Additionally, the integrated support for HDCP encryption prevents
non-licensed devices from receiving content.
The switches are ready-to-use hardware solutions with a high level of reliability,
and they are OS independent. Other ideal applications include working in a control
room, or wherever you need to keep track of multiple screens. View them all
on one monitor at your workstation instead of setting up a bank of monitors.
Excellent video performance.
ServSwitch 4Site Flex and 4Site II process analog (VGA) and digital video signals
(DVI, HDMI by adapter) via DVI-I ports as both input and output. Various video
modes, including HDTV up to 1920 x 1200, are supported in any combination as
input and output.
When the 4Site Flex is scaling videos up and down, the highly sophisticated
6-symbol interpolation filter guarantees brilliant image quality and sharp text
readability. The 30-bit RGB video engine ensures extremely precise color rendering
as required in broadcasting.
Display modes.
In Quad Mode, you can view the entire screen from
four different video sources.
68
Both 4Site models feature the following viewing modes: Full Screen, Picture-inPicture (PiP) Mode, and Quad Mode (or Dual Mode if there are only two connected
computers).
In Full Screen, a single source is displayed at full resolution and the entire content
is fully visible. With the 4Site Flex, each image can be rotated for vertically mounted
displays.
Picture-in-Picture (PiP) Mode combines more than one video signal for output
on a single screen. Using the PiP Mode, a single main image displays in full output
resolution, and up to three of the other video signals are displayed on the right side
of the main picture. These images can be scaled to a specific, configurable size and
position.

Quad Mode
Similar to PiP Mode, in Quad Mode, the
output video signal receives all four incoming
video signals sharing the screen with four equal
tiles (scaled). Each tile displays the entire screen
content of a video source or computer. This
mode will also work with two video signals
(Dual Mode) instead of four.
In addition to these modes, the ServSwitch
4Site Flex features Windows, or Win, Mode.
Using Win Mode, all video sources can be
freely resized and independently repositioned
anywhere on the display, just like windows.
They can overlap each other transparently.
Resizing and repositioning are done by mouse
or touchscreen. Four customized Win modes
can be saved for quick activation, e.g., via
front buttons 1–4.
No matter which of the multiviewing modes
is activated, you still have full keyboard and
mouse control of the selected server. Intuitive
hotkey or hotmouse switching between the
PiP Mode
screen tiles swaps the main screen and gives
you full keyboard and mouse control to the
new target computer. A simple hotkey takes
you back into non-scaled, full-screen operation
in case of an emergency on one of the selected
servers.
The 4Site Flex also enables switching via
a serial port using the protocol DCP XML,
and by using a USB touchscreen.
Win Mode
Lastly, the 4Site Flex supports 7.1 Surround
Sound via HDMI input. Audio signals are put
out via HDMI, S/PDIF (TOSLINK® and RCA), or
2-channel analog stereo jack. The analog output
is galvanically isolated to eliminate noise and
humming induced by ground loops. The volume
can be controlled via the on-screen display
(OSD) or with the audio keys on multimedia
keyboards.
More Flex features.
ServSwitch 4Site Flex features a transparent,
high-speed USB 2.0 matrix to switch USB devices
like fingerprinters, memory sticks, and webcams
to the connected computers. The switching
can be performed automatically with the active
channel, or manually without warning. For
example, data can be copied from one computer
to the other without being networked—simply
use a memory stick connected to one of the four
USB 2.0 ports on the rear panel of 4Site Flex.

The ServSwitch™ Freedom™ enables a single USB keyboard/mouse
user to easily access information and control operations across four USB
computer systems and monitors, saving time and money.
With the ServSwitch Freedom, you can perform functions that ordinarily
would require four separate keyboard/mouse sets — freeing up valuable
desktop space and simplifying your work. The Freedom works as if you
had an extended desktop on a single computer. Instead, you have four
PCs, and all you need to do is configure your screen layout. Switching ports
is as simple as moving your mouse cursor over the screens’ X and Y borders.
It’s ideal for professionals in command and control applications, such
as those in finance on a trading room floor. Not only can users switch
between several computers just by moving the mouse, but they can also
70
simultaneously access a mix of USB peripherals, including high-speed
USB 2.0 devices.
When properly configured, the switch has two switched USB Type A
ports for the USB 2.0 peripheral connectivity, in addition to its four USB
Type B ports for computer channels and two USB Type A ports for USB
keyboard/mouse connections.
The keyboard/mouse, audio, and the two individual USB channels can
be collectively or separately switched through to each computer system.
You can, for instance, create e-mails on one system, listen to audio on a
second system, print from a third computer, and scan documents on
another — all at the same time.
The Freedom LED system is a 10-port accessory that supports up to
10 LEDs of variable brightness and colors. Connected to the ServSwitch
Freedom, the LEDs show where the keyboard/mouse (K/M) controls are
located. Each LED designates a monitor connection, so this device can
support up to 10 monitors.
Users don’t need to install any software on the connected computers,
so setup is simplified and you won’t create any security issues in the
process — a real concern in government, healthcare, and banking
environments.
In addition, the ServSwitch Freedom works with all known software
and operating systems, including Windows®, Linux®, Mac®, Sun™, UNIX®,

Black Box Case Studies:
1-1-2 Call Center
The Challenge:
A county-wide emergency 1-1-2 call center was staffed by a single
person at a time to handle various types of emergency calls,
including police, fire, and accidents. The center was responsible
for sorting calls, sending out the appropriate response team, and
communicating with the response team about the situation as well
as any obstacles that would impede them from reaching the caller
(such as traffic jams or weather-related problems). Information had
to be front-and-center and easy to track.
With one person managing a lot of
data, an emergency call center
benefits from instant switching.
The Solution:
By connecting computers in sets of four
to monitors, and then connecting the
ServSwitch Freedom, Black Box techs
demonstrated how managing a large
amount of incoming information could
be as simple as using a keyboard/mouse
to access servers and monitors. With the
Freedom in place, the call center staff
member can quickly track incoming calls,
see what resources are available from the
emergency departments (ambulance,
fire trucks, EMS, police), and make the
necessary response. Other computers
can be used to transcribe phone calls,
and then communicate the conditions
of the emergency to responding
personnel. With another monitor set
up to receive information about traffic
and weather conditions, all the vital
information is at the fingertips of a
single person. Additionally, the Freedom
reduces clutter and lowers costs by using
fewer keyboards and mice per computer.
Switching ports with the ServSwitch Freedom is as simple as moving your mouse cursor over the connected
monitors’ X and Y borders. You can also use “quick-fire” hotkey or front-panel switching.

USB HID
The ServSwitch TC supports all USB HID devices like keyboard and
mouse, and also touchscreens, panels or similar pointing or input devices.
The ServSwitch TC reads the data from the connected USB peripherals and
mirrors this information 1-to-1 to the connected CPU ports. While switching
between the computers, the keyboard and mouse set keeps the connection
to all connected CPU active. Thus switching is very reliabe and fast.
Switching
Switching between the CPUs is triggered by programmable keyboard
sequences. In addtion, the ServSwitch TC offers also an RJ-10 port for each
CPU output, to add activity LEDs or push button controls to the monitors.

The ServSwitch Wizard IP DXS Gateways
eliminate bottlenecks in mission-critical server
administration. Connected to each of your
servers, these small-form-factor IP engines
provide system administrators with full nonblocking remote access from anywhere in
the world. With them, you get full control of a
connected CPU or server down to the BIOS level.
Their small size and included Windows®
VNC viewer application make this KVM-over-IP
solution ideal for enterprise remote management.
The IP gateways enable an authorized
remote user to transfer files and folders to a
host computer just as if the files and folders
were presented locally on a removable CD-ROM
or other storage media. Files can be transferred
via IP onto the gateway and onto the target
computer by means of a USB virtual media port.
Use them, for instance, to remotely upgrade
or patch host systems in another location—a
real time-saver when this has to be done on
many computers in many offices.
Plus, they offer high-quality video
performance. This makes them ideal for
healthcare imaging, graphics studio, engineering
visualization, control room, and similar HD video
applications. The ServSwitch Wizard IP DXS,
Single-Server IP Gateway with DVI (ACR101ADVI) accepts any single-link DVI-D input at up
to 1920 x 1200 resolution, but with the addition
of a video adapter, it can also be attached to
a computer with HDMI® or DisplayPort DP++
(dual-mode) output. The other two gateways
are VGA only.
Use the gateways anywhere on your
network. They can be placed within a LAN
behind any firewall or router connection to the
Internet, or be placed externally to the local
network, on a separate subnetwork, or with an
open Internet connection.
Connect directly to your PC for direct single
target access, or connect an existing KVM
switch to support more than one server or
computer. With a dual access gateway you
can connect one local user to a KVM and one
remote user via IP.
The IP gateways include a downloadable
Windows VNC Viewer for configuring and

managing remote connections using a computer
or mobile device. Or you can use it with a VNC
viewer program of your choice. You can create
up to 16 user profiles with defined access rights,
and the gateway itself can be accessed by up
to four users simultaneously, with each user
viewing and controlling the same session.
Also, they support both IPV4 and IPV6
Internet addresses, and for enterprise-grade
security, the gateways use AES 128-bit
encryption and RSA 2048-bit public key
authentication. The VNC viewer can also be
set up for ciphered user communications.

Extension
Considering the many available extension and switching
solutions might seem like an overwhelming task. But taking
some time to research and understand your options will be
well worth the investment. Whether your application is digital
high-definition video, KVM, or matrix peripheral switching,
using extenders enables you to remove computer noise and
heat from your work area. Additionally, extension enables
you to move servers and CPUs to low-dust, climate-controlled
equipment rooms without sacrificing video quality, picture
resolution, or real-time peripheral switching. Finally, server
maintenance, software updates, and network administration
become centralized, and time and cost associated with staff
support is reduced. Along with extending VGA or DVI video,
these applications extend keyboard and mouse, digital or
analog audio, serial, USB HID, and USB 2.0.

Use interference-free, ultra-secure 50/125-µm
optical fiber to put a KVM console with a DVI-D
monitor up to 2000 meters away from a
backracked CPU—without any video

The ServSwitch™ DVI-D USB KVM-over-Fiber
Extender sends both DVI-D and USB keyboard
and mouse signals over the same fiber cable,
transmitting digital video for zero signal loss.
The KVM extender optimizes digital display
connections for full HD display resolution (1920 x
1080), so you can extend 1080p to a workstation
up to 1000 meters away. For 1080i video, it
extends DVI-D video farther—up to 2000 meters.
It can also be used to extend HDTV content for
high-end LCDs and computer monitors
supporting widescreen WUXGA (1920 x 1200)
and UXGA (1600 x 1200) displays.
The perfect solution for extending

anywhere electronic noise may interfere with
communications.
Because the extender uses fiber for extending
computer signals, it’s ideal for high-security
applications. Fiber connection is immune to
electromagnetic interference. Use the KVM
extender to transmit sensitive data and real-time,
high-resolution monitor video in any missioncritical medical, military, and government imaging
application. And, as with all Black Box KVM
extension solutions, it enables you to keep your
computers and valuable data in a locked, secure
room and manage them remotely.
Integrates easily into a KVM switch
application.
To switch between and control multiple
computer CPUs, connect either extender unit
to a KVM switch. The extender supports hotkey
controls to select a computer, activate a computer
scan, and more.
High EMI/RFI resistance makes the extender
great for connecting control room monitors,
keyboards, and mice to factory floor CPUs or
For more information and our online store, visit www.blackbox.fi.
When the extender is connected to a KVM
switch, you can also gain access to the built-in
hotkey commands of the attached switch. A
“mask hotkey” switch on the extender units
masks the master-level KVM extender, so you can
configure the slave-level KVM switch as if you’re
sitting directly in front of the switch itself, saving
time and reducing errors.

The DKM Modular KVM Extenders are comprised of modular housing
chassis with 2, 4, 6, or 21 slots and transmitter and receiver interface
modules. The DKM extender setup provides the widest range of possible
combinations, which makes it easy to customize for your specific
application.
Modular Design
Housings are available with desktop chassis for two, four, or six boards
or use a 19” rackmount chassis for 21 modules. For mission critical
applications, all housings are available with redundant power. A DC-power
option for industrial usage, can be supplied, too.
Choose one housing with transmitter modules for your computer end
and one housing with the corresponding receiver cards at your user
station.
The desktop housings can be mounted with optional kits on DIN Rails,
walls, under the table as well as in 19” racks. No matter which chassis you
select, all ports are arranged on the front side of the chassis to ensure
comfortable access while installing and maintaining them.
Basic Link Modules
There are two different types of transmitter and receiver modules. Each
housing must be equipped with at least one basic link module offering the
cable connection to the remote end. Choose from CATx, fiber at 1 Gbps
or high-speed fiber at 2.5 Gbps depending on your distance and
bandwidth requirements.
Basic link modules are available with Single or Dual Link DVI-D, DVI-I
with VGA input and DVI-D output, or HDMI video plus USB HID.
Special feature modules increase your flexibility even more. The DVI-D
splitter module is ideal for redundant video links or applications where one
source should be displayed on two different monitors.
HDMI link modules are available with local access at the transmitter for
computer control or with an intergrated KVM switch at the receiver to
connect a local PC. For high bandwidth USB 2.0 extensions,choose the
4-Port USB 2.0 link module allowing transparent USB 2.0 transmissions
with 480 Mbps.
Upgrade Modules for additional periperhals
The upgrade modules carry their signals over the cable connections
from the basic link modules to save on infrastructure needs. They provide
a large variety of peripheral interfaces like USB HID, PS/2, embedded USB
2.0 at 36 Mbps, serial RS-232 or RS-422, bidirectional analog audio and
uni-, or-bidirectional digital audio. Mix and match the options according to
your application needs.
Converter Modules for analog video inputs
The DKM Modular KVM Extenders also allow the integration of analog
video formats like component and composite video as well as industrial
video formats like EGA, CGA, MDA. In addtion, there are options for SDI,
HD-SDI or 3G-SDI available. The modules convert these signals into digital
DVI-D signals being losslessly transmitted over the distance
Point-to-Point Extension or Switched Extension
The DKM Extenders work as a point-to-point extension solution or can
be combined with the DKM and DKM FX KVM Switches to build up a free
scalable and flexible KVM switching matrix.

Combine your extender interfaces depending on your individual needs
Step 1
Step 4
Order Transmitter Basic Link modules with DVI-D, DVI-I or HDMI video plus
(2) USB HID ports according to your computer interface requirements.
Choose from CATx or fiber versions depending on distance: CATx up to
140 meters from computer to console or switch; fiber up to 10 kilometers
from computer to console or switch.
Choose the receiver modules and housing based on your selection for the
transmitter side. Using the Modular Extenders in a point-to-point
application, the cable media on transmitter and receiver side needs to be the
same. In combination with the DKM FX/FXC Matrix Switches you can even
mix the media e.g. shorter CATx links on the transmitter side, longer fiber
cables to the consoles on the receiver end.
Step 2
Choose the upgrade module depending on your peripheral needs.
Step 5
Step 3
Choose a mounting option for the housings, if you like to install it in a
19” cabinet, mount it under a table, on a wall or a DIN rail.
Determine the appropriate housing according to the number of modules
chosen in step 1 and 2. Also consider free space for future expansion.
Choose from housings with AC or DC power, internal or external power
supplies with or without redundancy. The DKM Modular KVM Extenders are
factory-installed. However the 6-slot housing is also available with a
backplane for hot-swapable module replacements. Use the backplane
chassis with your 24/7 mission critical applications.

they output low-quality video or none at all.
ServSwitch Wizard SRX USB Extenders read

The dual-video version of the SRX series
(ACU5052A) uses two CATx links to transmit
the signals. The second video link carries a
transparent RS-232 port up to 19.2 kbps.
With two single-video units, you can connect
two workstations with keyboards, monitors,
and mice to one CPU tower. Two users can use
the local connections to monitor and diagnose
the CPU. This setup is ideal for a remote CPU
that doesn’t need to be monitored simultaneously
by two users.
Local access.
All local units have audio and VGA
feed-through, giving you local access just by
plugging a keyboard and mouse directly into
the spare PC USB ports.

ServSwitch Brand CATx USB KVM Extenders
• Extend USB and VGA signals over
CATx cable up to 300 meters.
• Support high-resolution video:
1600 x 1200 at 60 Hz over 200 meters or
1280 x 1024 at 75 Hz over 300 meters.
• Fully integrated skew compensation
cancels color shift and enhances
image sharpness.
• Optional bidirectional stereo audio
(16-bit digitized) support for highquality, low-noise audio extension.
• Surge protection on each CATx port
and power supply unit provide
overvoltage detection.
• Standard Warranty — 1 Year
• Extended Warranty — 1 Year or 3 Years
Each ServSwitch Brand CATx USB KVM
Extender system includes a local unit that
attaches to the CPU (or a ServSwitch) and
a remote unit that connects the user’s KVM
console. You can also plug in a monitor on
the local side.
Choose from models that extend singleor dual-head video with or without serial and
bidirectional stereo audio signals. A CATx cable
is required for each video channel between
local and remote ends.
All extenders deliver crystal-clear VGA video.
Additionally, the extenders feature emulated
DDC on the local units to ensure compatibility
with multihead graphics cards. The remote units
feature transparent DDC, reading DDC tables
from all attached monitors, then transferring
and storing data in the local unit to support
non-standard displays.
Independent low-frequency and highfrequency cable equalization control ensures
optimum video tuning across different cable
types, so installation is not costly. Control and
video tuning are carried out using the remote
keyboard with settings stored in EEPROM
memory.
The transparent serial port on the audio-enabled
models enables you to extend any serial device
up to 19.2 kbps. Extend one device requiring
handshaking lines or up to three simple serial
devices with no handshaking.

Installing ServSwitch Brand CATx USB KVM
Extenders is a plug-and-play procedure with
nothing to configure. Local video output enables
dual-access operation when a local keyboard and
mouse are connected directly to the CPU. With
a simple hotkey command, you can switch to
a private mode, leaving the remote video dark.
In most applications, the local unit draws its
power from the USB interface but, if necessary,
it also can be powered externally by the optional
Power Supply (PSU1006E-R3). The remote unit
requires an external power supply, which is
included.
Compact in design, the extender units fit
easily on a desktop. Or three units can be
rackmounted in 1U of space within a 19"
standard cabinet or rack using the optional
Rackmount Kit (RMK19U-X3).

• Extended Warranty — 1 Year or 3 Years
Put extra distance between your USB-style
peripherals and your CPU with the ServSwitch
Wizard KVM USB Extender with Audio. The
extender is ideal for high-density applications
where you want full use of USB keyboards,
mice, and other devices, but there simply isn’t
room for a server nearby, or for applications
where you want to keep CPUs secured and out
of the way.
All communications use inexpensive CAT5
or higher cable, so there’s no special cabling
needed to extend a USB bus from a PC to
peripherals.
Extend video and audio signals, too.
The extender enables you to transmit more
than just signals for USB connections. You can
use the same CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6 cable link
to transmit video signals, too.
And to transmit bidirectional audio for
microphone or speaker signals for a truly
multimedia workstation, just attach a second
CAT5 or higher link. The extender package
includes a local and a remote unit. Simply
connect the local module to your PC or Sun
ACU5050A
system and the remote module to the
peripherals next to the user. The remote unit
contains a built-in USB hub that provides four
separate USB 1.1 channels for attaching
multiple devices.

you can boost video frequencies to counter the
effects of long cable runs. The remote unit also
has a signal-boost feature that optimizes lessresponsive microphones. To protect against
power surges, both modules include internal
automatic cut-out fuses.
What’s more, you can mount both local and
remote units in an optional space-saving chassis,
which makes these extenders perfect for fastgrowing installations.

• VGA resolutions up to 1600 x 1200.
• Surge protection on the CATx link.
• Compact design for space-saving
integration.
• Options with audio and RS-232/V.24
and dual-head VGA.
• Also available with dual access at the
local and remote end.
• Enables you to place CPUs where you
want them.
• Keep-Alive function prevents server

disconnected.
• Standard Warranty — 1 Year
• Extended Warranty — 1 Year or 3
Years
The ServSwitch CATx Micro Extender Kits
provide KVM remote control of CPUs over a
distance of up to 50 meters. Even resolutions up
to 1600 x 1200 at 60 Hz are supported over the
full distance..
Intelligent keyboard and mouse emulation
built into the local module makes the kit
compatible with almost all PS/2 platform PCs or
servers, including RS/6000™ or HP® UNIX®
workstations. It provides keep-alive functionality,
so a connected server doesn’t lock up, even if the
CAT5 link is dispatched or if no keyboard or
mouse is present at the remote module.
The Dual-Access versions offer additional
connectivity to a local KVM console for on-site
administration when direct access to the CPU is
required—for instance, to service its hardware.
KVM signals are shared between the local and
remote console.
Modern graphic adapter cards often allow
dual-head VGA output. To fulfil these needs, use
the Dual-VGA Micro KVM Extenders. They allow
operators to control their processes in comfort
while the servers or workstations can be hosted
in a separate air-conditioned location.
Use the options with bidirectional stereo
audio and transparent RS-232/V.24 support (up
to 19.2 kbps) to send audio and serial signals across a single CAT5 cable along with the video
signal. It‘s the space-saving, cost-effective
solution for connecting a conference room’s
ceiling-mounted multimedia projectors to a PC or
laptop located between 15 and 50 meters away.

The hubs and remote units require no
software, are operating system independent,
and work with a variety of hardware. The hubs
perform complete PS/2 keyboard/mouse
emulation for the attached CPUs.
The hubs and remote units also feature
built-in surge protection to defend your UTP
link side against surges and spikes.
First, choose a hub for your application
from the list to the right. Then use the Buyer’s
Guide on the facing page to order a remote unit
for each active hub port. Compatible local
extender units (ServSwitch Brand Single-Channel
and Single- or Dual-Channel KVM Extenders)
