Remote Access


Raritan’s MasterConsole® Digital KVM switch (MCD) is ideal for small to midsized businesses (SMB) who need to have a centralized point of access to multiple servers without the expense and clutter of a dedicated keyboard, mouse, and monitor for each computer or server. The MCD supports the highest HD video resolution of up to 1920x1080 via standard Category 5/6/6e cabling. The multi-format video interface supports both Analog — VGA and Digital — DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort. Stereo audio is also supported by using VGA combo cables or MCD’s HDMI adaptors. MasterConsole® Digital KVM is available as a single-user switch and a dual-user switch to control multiple servers. It features KVM ports for 8, 16, or 32 servers and can be cascaded 2 levels to support up to 1024 connections at distances up to 150 feet (45 meters). Connecting to a computer is made easier with the use of standard Category 5/6/6e cables. MCD provides a friendly OSD (On-Screen Display) interface and hotkeys for quick and easy access connected computers. It is ideal for performing system maintenance, administration, running applications, and troubleshooting.
