Introducing kvm-tec to the UK Market

This week Argosy became the kvm-tec Distributor for the UK / Ireland and the Middle East. I am very excited to be working with them and wanted to put together a short article explaining a little bit more of the technology they offer.

There are so many KVM Manufactures in the market but I feel that kvm-tec have new features to offer to our market.

Product Offerings

kvm-tec manufacture many different extenders offering a range of configurations as part of a solution. These products can be used as a standalone extender or part of a matrix configuration used over an IP network. Here are a few of the different solutions available to you:

  • Smartline SVX: USB / DVI digital perfectly at an unbeatable price transparent USB 2.0 - in a robust housing. (Up to 150mtr at 1920 x 1200 can provide a 48 Unit Matrix)
