High Performance Dual-Head/Dual Link KVM Extender for Ultra Series Systems

The Draco vario ultra Dual-Head KVM extender enables the connection of two DVI monitors over a single Cat X or fiber cable, saving the expense of a second extender and reducing cabling cost and installation effort. When used in conjunction with KVM matrix systems, the Draco vario ultra Dual-Head KVM extender saves valuable matrix ports. Its sister product, the Draco vario ultra Dual Link KVM extender, enables the transmission of DVI signals to one single monitor up to 4K resolution. Extension of signals requires a single data cable.

The extenders are compatible with regular Single-Head/Single extenders: Consoles can access Single-Head/Single Link CPU Units instantaneously. In this situation, signals from Single-Head/Single Link sources are embedded within the Dual Link signal format and can be switched with no discernible switching delay. Single-Head/Single Link images are displayed at their own native resolution within a blanked area on-screen.
