Draco vario Dual-Head / Dual-Link

The Draco vario Dual-Head/Dual Link KVM extender is available in two variants to either extend DVI Dual Link video signals or transmit two DVI signals to two monitors via one data cable.

DVI Dual-Head and Dual Link extension

The Draco vario Dual-Head KVM extender enables the connection of two DVI monitors over a single Cat X or fiber cable, saving the expense of a second extender and reducing cabling cost and installation effort. When used in conjunction with KVM matrix systems, the Draco vario Dual-Head KVM extender saves valuable matrix ports.

It’s sister product, the Draco vario Dual Link KVM extender, enables the transmission of DVI signals to one single monitor up to 4K@30Hz 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.
