Avocent HMX 5000 Series Digital High Performance KVM

The Avocent® HMX 5000 Series
• USB 2.0 with Class Control
Enables connection of USB
devices from mice and keyboards
through to graphics tablets,
jog shuttles, joysticks and 3D
explorers, alongside mass
storage devices.
• EDID Management
Intelligent EDID management
allows the true characteristics of
the monitor to be passed back
to the computer. This ensures
perfect video display without the
additional configuration.
• Plug and Play
These devices are delivered in
a zero config state so you can
plug them in and start working
on them straight away. There is
no need for drivers or software
to be installed. the additional

whether the network is in
operation and can automatically
change to its second network
port if it detects a failure.

The Avocent® HMX 5000 Series is a high performance KVM (Keyboard, Video and
Mouse) extender that forms part of the digital matrix solution. This enables you to
locate your critical computing hardware in a secure and temperature controlled
environment away from the user work station, while maintaining a pixel perfect
desktop experience.
Truly unlimited extension distances
Extension distance is not limited to a single 100 meter cable length - If you need
to extend further, simply add a 1GbE network switch to achieve an additional 100
meters. The units are also fitted with SFP cages to accept fiber optic transceivers
which enable much greater extension distances.
Single CATx cable or fiber for greater flexibility
This significant asset is what gives you the freedom to use the full variety of cable
links that you typically find within an average structured cabling system. The result
is that you can achieve reliable links, regardless of whether the cables are CAT5e,
CAT6 , CAT7 or Fiber.
Real time control with perfect digital video
Using a spatially-lossless encoding system, with 1:1 pixel mapping. The digital
video you receive is the same as the digital video leaving the remote computer.
For applications where security is of high importance, the system has the ability to
disable the use of non-HID devices, meaning there is no need to physically block USB
ports to prevent the use of mass storage devices.
