Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM Extenders’ New Private WAN Support Facilitates Remote Work over Longer Distances

Extio 3 Series offers users secure and seamless remote desktop control of 4K and multi-display systems—from building to building or city to city

Matrox® is pleased to announce private wide-area-network (WAN) support with its high-performance Matrox Extio™ 3 IP KVM extenders. This new mode of operation enables organizations to introduce new remote work and collaborative workflow infrastructures by allowing users to access, share, and control any centralized workstation located in another building or city. Featuring best-in-class 4K and multi-display extension and switching support, Extio 3 ensures a secure and seamless remote desktop experience critical for a wide range of control room applications, including process control, industrial and automation, military and defense, broadcast, medical, education, and more.

Multi-user and multi-site collaboration

Built on a highly-optimized, ultra-low-bitrate encoding platform, Extio 3 provides unprecedented KVM extension and switching performance across both LAN and private WAN infrastructures. This industry-leading technology allows individual users to access dedicated systems or have multiple users connect to the same computer(s)—whether they are in the same building, between campuses, or even across multiple cities—to promote collaborative work environments.

Secure, easy-to-deploy solution

Extio 3 boasts a number of advanced security features to safeguard the KVM network. AES encryption ensures secure transmission of all audio, video, and USB signals as they are transported over LAN or private WAN. IT administrators can also integrate Microsoft® Active Directory to manage user authentication, as well as execute USB whitelist control of all connected devices.Compatible with Microsoft Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® operating systems, Extio 3 is an easy-to-deploy KVM extender that does not require the installation of any software on the host system—the ideal plug-and-play solution for certified systems that need to be controlled remotely. 

“Matrox Extio 3’s new capability opens up a wide range of KVM extension and switching workflows for multi-site organizations,” said Caroline Injoyan, business development manager at Matrox. “The ability to build highly-connected infrastructures backed by exceptional and uncompromised remote desktop performance over LAN and private WAN facilitates new levels of operational efficiency, whether it’s to optimize real-time analysis, enhance critical decision making, or foster deeper teamwork and collaboration.”
