KVM Extender with on board audio
GCE800W6
1
Part No. M0577
Overview
The GCE800 USB KVM Extender with on board audio allows access to a computer system from a remote
console (USB keyboard, mouse, monitor, stereo speakers, and microphone). It is perfect for factory and
construction sites, or any type of installation where the console needs to be in a conveniently accessible
location, but you want the system equipment to reside in a safe place - away from dust, dirt, and harsh
environmental influences. The GCE800 also is useful for control and security purposes. Store the system
unit in a secure area at the same time that you put the console in a location that offers convenient access.
Recognizing the increased importance of sound in the computing environment, the GCE800 improves
on earlier models by incorporating audio capability. Now, audio (stereo microphone and stereo speakers)
transmission can be extended to the remote system along with the KVM data.
The GCE800 USB KVM Extender improves on previous designs by using compact Cat 5 cable - the kind
commonly used in Ethernet networks which makes for a much neater, more convenient, more reliable data
transfer connection. In addition, the GCE800 has a built-in USB port that complies with the USB Mass
Storage specification and supports USB Mass Storage compliant flash drives. Setup is as easy as can be:
simply connect the computer system and local console components to the local GCE800 module, run
the Cat 5 cable to the Remote GCE800 module (up to 820 ft) ; and connect the console to the Remote
Module.
Note: Y
. ou can control numerous remote systems from a single console by combining the GCE800 with a
KVM switch.

Invoking Hotkey Mode
All Hotkey operations begin by invoking Hotkey Mode (HKM). To invoke
Hotkey Mode, do the following:
1. Hold down the Num Lock key
2. Press and release the minus key
3. Release the Num Lock key
[Num Lock] + [-]
Note: There is an alternative key combination to invoke HKM (see Alternate
Hotkey Invocation Keys, page 35).
33
When Hotkey Mode is active:
• The Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock LEDs flash in succession to indicate so. They stop flashing and
revert to normal status when you exit HKM.
• A Command Line appears on the monitor screen. The command line prompt is the word Hotkey:
in yellow text on a blue background. Hotkey information that you key in displays on the command
line.
• Ordinary keyboard and mouse functions are suspended – only Hotkey compliant keystrokes and
mouse clicks (described in the sections that follow), can be input.
• At the conclusion of some hotkey operations, you automatically exit hotkey mode. With some
operations, you must exit manually. To exit HKM manually, press [Esc] or [Spacebar].
Alternate Hotkey Invocation Keys
An alternate set of hotkey invocation keys is provided in case the default set conflicts with programs
running on the computers.
34
To switch to the alternate hotkey invocation set, do the following:
1. Invoke HKM (see page 19)
2. Press and release the H key
The hotkey invocation keys become the Ctrl key (instead of Num Lock) and the F12 key (instead of
Minus).
Note: This procedure is a toggle between the two methods. To revert back to the original [Num Lock]
[Minus] method, invoke HKM, then press and release the H key again.
Alternate OSD Activation Keys
