At NAB last week I researched a number of different KVM manufacturers, trying to determine the best route to take for my company as I know they are a large investment to make. I want to make sure I get the right one.
I looked at IHSE, Blackbox, and Adder. I've also looked at Geffen.
Does anybody here have experience with KVM deployments, and would you be willing to offer me your advice?
I need a small deployment right now-- 4 workstations, all housed in a room < 100ft away.
While extenders would probably suffice, I want the flexibility of being able to access any workstation from any room.
We are a post-production facility. All of our workstations are running at least 2 heads at 2560 resolution. For this reason I think we need the capability to do 4K on each head since all of the non-4K products seem to cap at 1080 per head.
We need audio capability at each station obviously.
Cost is a consideration, but I also want something that I can expand and be somewhat future-proofed. So that might mean specking out something that is more than what we need at this time.
What do you guys think?
