The USB-X offers both USB extension and seamless USB matrix switching for mission critical display projects.
The USB-X is a four port USB extension solution that facilitates USB mouse, keyboard, and touch panel (HID) connection over a distance of up to 100 meters over CAT5 point-to-point, and, depending on configuration, from 550 meters to over 100 kilometers over fiber point-to-point. Connect USB-X modules to a network switch for USB extension over LAN connection over a virtually unlimited distance.
With the addition of a network switch and an external network-based control system, the USB-X can perform quick and seamless USB matrix switching. With the USB-X, control an unlimited number of computers or servers from one workstation. Route keyboard, mouse and touch panel control independently with a single USB-X unit per workstation. Hot key assignment allows fast switching via user-defined keyboard strokes.
The USB-X integrates seamlessly into pre-existing fiber and Ethernet infrastructures. The USB-X is also compatible with computers that have multiple layers of USB hubs, and can be powered over Ethernet.
The USB-X is available in 3 models:
The BDV-USB-X-All can be used as an upstream (PC) or downstream (HID) extender. BDV-USB-X-All includes GPIO and RS-232 extension. The BDV-USB-X-All supports Power over Ethernet.
The BDV-USB-X-PC can be used as an extender for upstream devices only (PC).
The BDV-USB-X-HID can be used as an extender for downstream devices (HIDs) only, including touch panels, keyboards and mice.
