Rose Electronics has just announced a new console extension and keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) integration product, the CrystalView Mini. The device converts the PC video, keyboard and mouse signals for transmission over unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cabling, enabling a PC-user console to be located up to 50 metres away from the computer. Designed for applications where UTP is the preferred cabling method, or where a clear and stable signal cannot be generated over regular video cable, the CrystalView Mini can also be used to interface with a Rose KVM switch, for access and control of multiple CPUs and remote server selection. The unit works with any HD15 monitor at up to 1280 x 1024 resolution, independent of the operating system, according to Rose Electronics. A dual-user version is also available, allowing two user workstations to access the connected PC. The product is distributed in Australia by DataComm Wholesale. The single-user unit carries a retail price of $698 (ex GST) and the dual version retails for $898 (ex GST).
