Kontron Debuts Slim KVM Rack Mount Visual Systems with 17-inch Displays

2/24/2004 - Kontron AG proudly presents two new slim Keyboard Video Mouse (KVM) drawers for use as server user-consoles. The RPD-1171 and RPD-1178 are high-end 1U rack mount systems with 17-inch TFT LCD screens. Both are space-effective solutions that offer maximum user efficiency. The consoles are designed for use in cramped environments such as those found in flight control towers, server farms and factory automation sites; the RPD-1178 includes KVM switch functionality.

Both KVM consoles feature large, hinged TFT LCD displays and an industrial grade structure that provides a very reliable environment for network administrators. No software is required for setting up user interfaces.

The RPD-1178 features KVM switch functionality and it is able to access up to eight servers. Cascading allows a single system administrator to control up to 512 systems. Thus, the RPD-1178 is the ideal solution for managing a large number of servers with only one KVM console. The RPD-1171 hosts both the Digital Visual Interface (DVI) and D-Sub analog interface, enabling it to accept both digital and analog inputs.

The remaining features of both consoles are identical and their design is ultra slim to conserve space within their host racks. The 17-inch TFT LCD displays provide server visualization at a resolution of 1280x1024 (SXGA) and have an anti-reflective coating, to enable clear viewing at all times. The flat keyboard hosts an additional number block and 88 keys. The RPD-1178 features a high quality integrated front panel switch, hotkeys and an easy to use on screen display for configuring the screen and the KVM switch.
