The CrystalView Plus series of enhanced KVM extenders allow you to position your KVM station up to 1,000 feet (300 meters) away from your computerusing CATx cable. 

The CrystalView Plus USB has gone one step further and eliminated adjustment knobs and jumper switch settings. Integrated controls that adjust for skew, low and high frequency equalization, and RGB delay for each channel have been made easy by simple keyboard commands.

Each channel (single or dual) can be adjusted independently or global settings can be applied for all.  These adjustments make for a crystal clear image using CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6 cabling.

The stereo audio option produces low-noise CD quality sound.  Speakers, headphones, or a powered or un-powered microphone can be connected to the remote unit.  It’s perfect for call centers, trader’s desks, kiosks, TV stations, and other applications where multiple video sources are used and need to be extended from the computer. 

The bi-directional serial option allows you to connect a touchscreen, digital tablet, serial printer or other supported serial device to the remote location.  No set-up is needed; just connect the serial device to the serial port and it’s ready to use.
