Avio Series


Dual-DVI Fiber Optic KVM Extender Delivers 
Uncompromised Performance

Matrox Avio F120 and F125 KVM extenders consist of a transmitter and receiver pair. The Avio transmitter unit captures I/O functionality of the host computer and sends it uncompressed over a single duplex LC-LC fiber optic cable to the Avio receiver unit, letting you separate the computer from the user environment and place it in a climate controlled machine room. Matrox Avio is the ideal KVM extension solution for design, 3D visualization, process control, broadcast, post-production, industrial and military applications where system performance and security are key requirements. Its high bandwidth transmission maintains system performance and does not introduce any latency or dropped frames. Matrox Avio is the solution designed to minimize total ownership cost and maximize performance.


Matrox Avio Series KVM extension solutions delivers dual-display workstation performance ideally suited for mission-critical environments that require stable, reliable I/O extension technology and where data security, heat, noise and space are prevalent issues. The separation of the user interface devices from the computer offers many advantages such as improved IT system maintenance and life cycle support, climate and noise control for user/operator stations, climate and environmental control for systems, and increased security.
