Raritan’s New KVM-over-IP User Station Brings 4K Performance and Productivity to Remote Equipment Access

Posted on September 18, 2019

SOMERSET, NJ (September 17, 2019)Raritan® — a brand of Legrand, and a leading provider of intelligent data center management and rack power distribution solutions — today introduced the Dominion® KX IV User Station. Designed to work with Raritan’s newest and fourth-generation KVM-over-IP switch — Dominion® KX IV-101 — the new User Station delivers higher video resolutions up to 4K and supports a larger number of KVM sessions. The User Station also has three times the processing power of its predecessor.

Multiple users can simultaneously access, view, and control equipment connected to the KVM-over-IP switch across one, two or three monitors.

“The KX IV User Station is recommended for users working with 4K video, large numbers of KVM sessions, and those using up to three monitors. This new User Station delivers an entirely new level of performance and productivity,” says Richard Dominach, Director of Product Management at Raritan. “Our new Dominion KX IV solution is designed to meet the demanding requirements and applications in today’s broadcast studios, control rooms, labs, clean rooms, and semiconductor manufacturing — and in just about any place that high-performance access is needed.”

At Intel, for example, several development labs use Raritan’s KVM-over IP solution to provide developers throughout Intel secure access to prototype and development equipment. Developers can use a PC, workstation, notebook, or a KVM User Station to access equipment connected to Dominion KVM-over-IP switches. Some of the developers test 4K streaming services and applications, says Marvin Towles, Engineering Technician at Intel. “But without 4K video support the KVM solution could not be used to test these services,” adds Jesus Aromin, Automation Engineer at Intel. “The new KX IV User Solution solves this issue and should be a boost to productivity.”

The Dominion KX IV User Station supports:

  • Three times the performance of the KX III User Station.
  • Up to 4K video resolutions.
  • Faster frame rates — up to 60 frames per second for 1080p video.
  • Multiple, simultaneous KVM sessions.
  • VGA, DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort video.
  • Up to three connected monitors.
  • All User Station integrate with CommandCenter for larger deployments.

The KX IV User Station can sit on a desk, be mounted in a standard 19” rack, or VESA-mounted on the back of a monitor.

The KX IV-101 switch connects to a single computer and provides unblocked access and control to multiple users.
