Opticomm Optiva OTP-1DVI2A1UKM KVM extender

Alhambra, Calif. – Opticomm-Emcore, a manufacturer of multimedia distribution equipment for 4K UHD and other resolutions, has two newly upgraded KVM extenders, its proprietary Optiva OTP-1DVI2A1UKM and open-architecture openGear OPG-1DVI2A1UKM. Intended for commercial A/V installations, these insert cards extend and convert DVI, VGA and component video, along with stereo analog audio and USB-HID KVM for remote keyboard mouse applications, over a single fiber.

With the upgrade, both cards now allow for two choices of optics, the original 4.25 Gbps optics that supports component video up to 1,920 x 1,200 for digital signage and 1,600 x 1,200 for PC graphics, for distances up to 25 km (15.5 miles). Using the newest 10.3 Gbps optics, the new products can send K UHD graphics (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) over distances up to 10 km (6.2 miles).

These fiber cards are designed for high resolution, uncompressed video bandwidth intensive environments such as command and control, post-production and live events. Additional applications include video walls, jumbotrons, digital signage, scientific modeling, military simulation, video conferencing, air traffic control — anywhere that secure, lossless signal management is necessary and requires remote KVM capability over a single (for HD) or dual (for 4K UHD) LC fiber optic cable.
