Dual-Head / Dual Link DVI KVM Extender

The Draco vario Dual-Head enables the connection of two DVI monitors. To extend signals a single Cat X or fiber cable link is needed, saving the expenses of a second extender and reducing cabling costs and installation effort. When used in conjunction with KVM matrix systems, the Draco vario Dual-Head extender saves valuable matrix ports. Its sister product, Draco vario Dual Link, enables the transmission of DVI signals to one single monitor up to 4K resolution. Extension of signals requires a single data cable. The extenders are compatible with regular Single-Head/Single extenders: Consoles can access Single-Head/Single Link CPU Units instantaneously. In this situation, signals from Single-Head/Single Link sources are embedded within the Dual Link signal format and can be switched with no discernible switching delay. Single-Head/Single Link images are displayed at their own native resolution within a blanked area on-screen.
