Multi-Server Control and Extension Technology
The versatile AutoView KVM switches add flexibility and performance to your network. The
multi-platform, 16-port AutoView 2000 integrates Avocent’s field-proven analog KVM
switching technology with advanced cable management, enhanced access and a patented
next-generation user interface. The AutoView 2000 provides flexible access at the rack for
two simultaneous users, eliminates cable bulk with Avocent’s AVRIQ CAT 5 designed server
interface module and provides convenient on-screen management with the OSCAR GUI. A
unique benefit of the AutoView 2000 is the AVRIQ smart cable interface. The AVRIQ CAT 5
designed cable interface automatically assigns and retains unique server names for each
attached server, which simplifies installation and eases re-configuration. The AutoView
2000 KVM switch supports all major server platforms and the OSCAR user interface allows
for full system administration.
AutoView, the product suite’s cornerstone, provides user-friendly on-screen display with
14-character naming capabilities and two-level security. This KVM switch offers switching
methods from either the keyboard, front panel or the on-screen display and its advanced hot
pluggability makes it easier to add, remove and swap channels without powering down your
servers. The Keep Alive feature allows attached servers to continue network functions in the
event of an AutoView power failure. Keyboard and mouse emulation processing power is
provided through the keyboard connection on the servers. This prevents the attached
computers from locking up and keeps you from losing time and data.

Simple KVM Access with Increased Control
OutLook
With advanced on-screen menuing, the OutLook KVM switches offer simple point and
click access to your servers. OutLook’s extensive functionality also includes
programmable naming, scanning, security and system broadcast features. The 8-port
OutLook 180ES is a single-user system that controls up to 128 computers from a single
console. The 16-port OutLook 1160ES accommodates PC and Sun platforms and supports
Intel, Sun, Macintosh, HP-9000, RS-6000 and Windows NT. The OutLook 2160ES
supports dual users and provides extensive multi-server access. The OutLook 4160ES
controls up to 256 computers from one console and supports four users.
Product Series
For advanced access and control, OutLook uses the patented OSCAR on-screen
configuration and reporting GUI. The OSCAR interface provides a Windows-like GUI to
control all administrative functions and settings. OSCAR uses intuitive menus for system
configuration and server selection and provides server status information at a glance.
OSCAR also supports multi-platform server environments and includes support for
multiple languages. With OSCAR, users easily benefit from convenient server
identification and selection. Administrators can establish preferred user-defined naming
conventions to create server lists and locate servers.
OutLook KVM switches are designed to optimize valuable space, time, power and
hardware in the most extreme conditions. The OutLook is highly scalable and
accommodates multiple users and computers as the server population grows. The 1U
high-density design conserves valuable rack and server space, while providing improved
cable management to minimize unnecessary cable bundles.
