Cranbury, N.J. – IHSE USA, a manufacturer of KVM matrix switch and extender solutions for video environments and government agencies, announced the484 series VGA 8 x 1 CPU switch/converter allowing up to 8 VGA CPU sources to be connected and switched through a single DVI extension port. The extension port can be connected directly to a workstation receiver or attached to one of the IHSE tera enterprise or tera compact matrix switch ports for distributed access.

The 484 CPU switch is a 1RU 8-port VGA KVM switch providing high-resolution output up to 1,920 x 1,200-pixel resolution. Two models are available: L484-8VECWR for CAT-x and L484-8VESWR for fiber. These units are targeted at classrooms, control centers and digital signage applications where you need to maintain and share legacy analog sources without taking up multiple ports of a KVM matrix switch.

The 484 CPU switch allows users to share up to eight computers to one remote monitor, keyboard and mouse. Each input port has a built-in scaling function that maintains video integrity for sharp images up to 1,920 x 1,200 pixels at a frame rate of 60 Hz. Each input port provides for a VGA (HD15 connector), USB-HID (Type B) and stereo audio (3.5mm) connections. All settings are stored in non-volatile memory for retention should a power failure occur.

The built-in VGA to DVI processor converts varying input signals and scales them to match the set resolution of the output display requirements. Each unit includes a local mini-USB port for firmware upgrades and a local USB 2.0 port (480 Mbps) for active USB data transfer. The Intelligent EDID processing is handled with hot-key commands, allowing immediate EDID updates to each VGA port on the switch.
