New DisplayPort KVM Extenders Re-envision Control Rooms with 5K and Robust System Reliability

ATEN Technology Launches New Solutions for the Control Room of the Future

­ATEN Technology, Inc., the technology leader and global manufacturer of KVM and AV/IT connectivity and management solutions, announced several new 5K DisplayPort KVM over IP Extenders, ideal for facility situation rooms, network operations centers (NOCs), utility process control centers, traffic management centers, retail surveillance centers, broadcasting distribution monitoring centers, command control centers, emergency and recue command centers and operation control centers.

The new KVM over IP Extenders can be combined with ATEN’s KVM over IP Matrix Manager (CCKM) to extend, control, monitor and access DisplayPort-interfaced computers across an independent network with flexible configurations. Over IP solutions allow operators to be separated from servers, while secure, remote access is made easy, and servers remain centrally manageable.

Product Features:

  • Native DisplayPort signal processing with color depth up to 12 bits and support for HDR 10
  • Lossless video compression up to 5K with zero latency
  • Superior video quality – up to 5120 x 1440 @ 60 Hz (4:4:4), 5120 x 2880 @ 30 Hz (4:4:4), 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz (4:4:4), 1920 x 1080 @ 240 Hz (4:4:4), 2560 x 1440 @ 144 Hz (4:4:4)
  • USB isochronous transfer enables USB camera and USB speaker usage between transmitter and receiver
  • Network/power redundancy that reinforces system reliability by maintaining uninterrupted operations and seamless power failover during any contingency
  • Quickly switch between two ports in 0.3 seconds with no blank screen transition
  • Boundless switching allows operators to switch control from one computer to another by moving the mouse cursor across screens, to quickly respond to anything with high priority

“Control room operations are being challenged to pivot effectively as workplaces face restructuring and decentralization is inevitably enforced. Despite manpower shortages, managing escalations with secure, precise, and timely data from real-time monitoring and dynamic collaboration has become measurably more mission-critical than ever,” said Aaron Johnson, product manager at ATEN Technology. “Incorporating flexible extender connections, visual collaboration, and system control, ATEN’s latest KVM over IP Extenders aim to streamline control room workflows to jump start operators’ productivity, allowing mission-critical control room operations to become more ergonomic, user-centered, and task-oriented, while remaining separate from any adverse environmental interference.”

ATEN’s 5K DisplayPort KVM over IP receiver and transmitters are now available for $2,395 USD via ATEN’s channel of distribution and reseller partners.
