The ATEN Modular Matrix Switch series offers sophisticated access and real-time control of multiple local and remote A/V input devices and displays from a single chassis. The most recently launched VM3200 allows users to independently switch and route video and/or audio content directly to various monitors, displays, projectors, and/or speakers simply by pressing front panel pushbuttons. A built-in Scaler encodes the video format in order to provide seamless, real-time switching. The front panel LCD shows a quick view of active port connections. The switch also includes an option to select an EDID Mode that yields the best resolution across different monitors.
Both the VM3200 and VM1600 are easily expandable and accommodate a lineup of hot-swappable ATEN I/O boards. Equipped with automatic signal conversion, the matrix switches allow various combinations of digital video interfaces, including HDBaseT (VM7514 / VM8514), HDMI (VM7804 / VM8804), DVI (VM7604 / VM8604), 3G-SDI (VM7404), and VGA (VM7104). Demonstrating such a high level of flexibility, this makes them ideal for large-scale A/V applications such as broadcasting stations, traffic and transportation-related control rooms, emergency service centers, and any application that requires customizable, high-speed A/V signal routing.
Professional workstations have included DisplayPort ports for quite some time, the interface’s prominence growing in tandem with the ever-increasing demand for multiple-monitor setups.
As the growth of ecommerce continues, server uptime is more essential to businesses than ever. Uptime is a measurement of how long servers remain operational without crashing or rebooting. The interactions between servers and their environment often pose a major risk to server availability.
Damage caused by the environment can often go unnoticed or incorrectly blamed on other causes. Condensation, rust, and heat damage is usually hidden inside machines, out of human sight.
