PITTSBURGH, PA – February 15 2022 – Black Box, an industry-leading provider of IT connectivity solutions, today introduced its KVXHP Series Quad Monitor KVM extenders, which leverage DisplayPort 1.2 Multi-Stream Transport (MST) technology over Cat 5/6 or fiber to support up to four external displays with minimal cabling at the user’s desktop. Offering true plug-and-play, point-to-point KVM extension, the KVXHP Series gives users high-performance access to a remote computer, with a single cable feeding all monitors.
“While most solutions on the market can support just two screens, our KVXHP Series extender supports four — and eliminates the tangle of cables typically required for such a setup,” said David Isola, KVM product manager at Black Box. “The KVXHP extender requires just one cable connection to one monitor, over existing copper network cables for shorter distances up to 100 meters or over fiber for longer cable runs. It’s a truly elegant solution for extending video across multiple monitors on a desktop, or even creating a small video wall.”
Ideal for game developers, 3D CAD developers and other users requiring a large visual canvas and exceptional responsiveness from their keyboard and mouse, the Black Box KVXHP extender supports four external MST-enabled DisplayPort monitors with resolutions up to 1920×1200 at 60Hz using 8 bits per color and 4:4:4 chroma sampling and provides high-quality audio, EDID management and emulated USB 2.0 (HID). One cable runs from the extender to one monitor, and short, unobtrusive rear cable connections connect the other monitors in a daisy chain.
For higher-density deployments, the optional rack-mount (KVXHP-RMK) tray holds up to two KVXHP extender units for quick mounting into any 19-inch rack, leaving enough space for both power supplies and cable management. Powering up to eight or 16 12VDC devices, respectively, the Black Box Central Power Hub solutions (ACR1000-CPH8R-R2 and ACR1000-CPH16R-R2) can replace multiple single power supplies for a clutter-free, space-saving installation in 1 RU. Black Box also introduces single- and dual-monitor models of the KVXHP series for applications in which extension for just one or two monitors with resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 is needed.
