Matrox Adds 10 km Extension and HDCP Compliance to Avio F125 KVM Extenders

-- New features make Matrox Avio F125 the ideal solution for long-haul transmission of high quality dual-HD, 4K or 4K UHD video content

MONTREAL, Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that important new features have been added to Matrox Avio™ F125 KVM extension solutions. Maximum extension distance over a single duplex LC-LC fibre optic cable has been increased from 4 km (2.5 mi) to 10 km (6.2 mi) and High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliance has been added.

Designed for high-performance environments, Avio F125 delivers fluid graphics and video playback over long distances making it ideal for Pro A/V, industrial process control, oil and gas, 3D design and visualization, education, military, broadcast and post-production environments. The ability to extend uncompressed dual-HD, 4K or 4K UHD video; keyboard; mouse; stereo analogue audio and USB 2.0 devices up to 10 km from a workstation over a single duplex LC-LC cable lowers the cost of deployment across campuses and multi-story facilities. HDCP compliance lets users extend and playback copy-protected content on HDCP-enabled displays.

"The new 10 km extension and HDCP compliance features let users get the most from their investment," said Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. "In particular, customers who require longer distance deployments will appreciate the significant cost saving inherent in Avio's single-cable design."

Matrox Avio will be presented at Integrated Systems Europe 2014 (Amsterdam RAI, Feb. 4-6, stand 11-M66).

Availability
Support for 10 km extension is available as part of the Avio SFP single-mode upgrade kit. The HDCP compliance feature for Avio will be available as a firmware update this quarter. For more information, contact [email protected].
