September 22, 2022 News


Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, recently introduced the Vertiv™ Avocent® HMX 3080/4080 series, an IP-based signal extender allowing users to remotely transmit DVI video, audio, USB and RS232 signals over a Gigabit network. The product is available now, exclusively in Greater China, South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India.

The Vertiv Avocent HMX 3080/4080 series joins the company’s high performance IP-based KVM portfolio. It improves from the Avocent® HMX 1080/2080 series with the below key benefits:

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 organisations that require high-definition video and high quality audio.
