Typical Application

CrystalView Plus application


CrystalView Plus series of KVM Extenders allows you to position your KVM station and enhance video quality up to 1,000 feet away from your computer using a single CATx cable. The extender is available in models compatible with dual or quad video to support multiple video sources. Another option, the dual access model, allows you to access the computer at either the local or remote end.

CrystalView Plus has simplified setup and configuration by eliminating adjustment knobs and jumper switch settings. All tuning for skew, low and high frequency equalization, and RGB delay can be set with keyboard commands. Each video channel can be adjusted individually or universal settings may be applied, enabling the user to achieve the appropriate settings for image clarity.

Stereo audio is an optional addition which produces low-noise, high quality sound. Speakers, headphones, or a microphone can be connected to the remote receiver unit, giving it a wide range of uses such as call centers, trader's desks, kiosks, TV stations, and any G9other application in which multiple video and audio sources require extension from a computer.

The bi-directional serial option allows the connection at the remote location of a touchscreen, digital tablet, serial printer, or other serial device. CrystalView Plus is plug-and-play, with no set-up required for serial devices.
