 Key Benefits

  • Enhanced Performance: Comprising transmitter and receiver units, each device is assigned a unique IP address to help mitigate KVM transmission losses.
  • Flexible Architecture: The desktop-based Avocent HMX 3080/4080 offers multiple connectivity options. The receiver and transmitters can be directly connected using CATx and fiber cables. Using the integrated network ports, a single transmitter can be connected to multiple receivers or vice versa, and for connectivity redundancy.
  • Virtual IP Matrix: With sufficient bandwidth and network switch ports, an IP matrix architecture can support up to 65,000 receivers in the same network.
  • Ease of Use: Any receiver terminal in the network can autodetect and configure all the devices in the network.

The Avocent HMX 3080/4080 is ideal for control room settings in broadcast, emergency management, industrial, and energy organizations that require high-definition video and high-quality audio.
