For managed KVM switching and extension, the ethernet-based HMX Manager is the solution for centralized desktop management. The HMX Manager provides ease of workstation maintenance, management and access in a secure environment.
The Avocent HMX Manager provides centralized management and control of HMX 1050 extender transmitters and receivers, allowing them to serve as endpoints of a high performance, LAN-based KVM switch. This solution provides media professionals with uncompromised switched KVM access to business critical broadcast and post-production video editing systems.
Based on Gigabit Ethernet and highly optimized extension technology, the Avocent HMX 1050 extender and the HMX Manager products provide the image quality and responsiveness associated with distance-limited analog KVM switches and the unlimited distance benefits previously only available through less responsive KVM over IP switches. In addition to near lossless video and snappy mouse response, these third-generation, network-based products deliver CD-quality audio and seamless extension of USB mass storage devices.
Solution for Broadcast and Post-Production Environments
The HMX Manager provides ease of workstation maintenance, management and access in a secure environment. Through centralization of computer assets, the user benefits from a noiseless working environment, optimized work area space and serviceability. Key security features allow administrators to enforce access restrictions to critical systems with granular settings that permit server access only from select user stations, as well as audit logging for full logging of all system access. The HMX Manager includes web-based management of user access rights to allow users to change desk locations without the need for the administrator to reconfigure each desk in order to provide access. Web-based management allows adminstrators to perform system administration and setup right from their desks.
