Minicom Extender

  • Minicom Advanced Systems, a manufacturer of solutions for digital signage Audio/Video/Serial distribution, has announced the newest addition to its line of extension products, the KVMS Extender. The KVMS Extender allows you to operate a keyboard, video, mouse and serial device up to 1000 ft. from your computer using a single CAT5 UTP/FTP cable. The new, long-range solution is highly suited to the digital signage market, delivering real-time, high quality video media to plasma/LCD screens, and interactive kiosks and displays at greater distances than ever before.
  • KVMS Extender is a plug-and-play hardware solution that requires no software and creates no network conflicts. It is compatible with virtually any operating system and an extensive range of KVM switches. The system consists of a transmitter and receiver connected by a single CAT5 cable. The transmitter connects directly to the computer or media player and the receiver connects to the extended keyboard, video, mouse or plasma/LCD screen, its small form-factor making it ideal for desk or flat-panel mounting. An additional user can be added at the transmitter end, creating a dual-user system. Full Serial communication via bi-directional RS-232 facilitates touch-screen and additional Serial device applications. For digital signage applications, the system facilitates high quality video transmission, and allows the IT administrator to power on/off and query the status of the extended display installation from the player.
