Application Notes

  • How to Extend the Computer and/or Monitor/Keyboard/Mouse from the UNIMUX-DVI-xHD
    Example Applications using the dual screen splitter
    The ST-C6USBH-HDBT HDMI USB KVM Extender over HDBase-T can be used to extend the computer and/or monitor/keyboard/mouse connections up to 328 feet away from the UNIMUX-DVI-xHD.

    When extending a computer connection from UNIMUX-DVI-xHD using ST-C6USBH-HDBT, the extender can be in either Win or MAC mode.

    When extending the keyboard/mouse from UNIMUX-DVI-xHD using ST-C6USBH-HDBT, the extender must be in MAC mode.
  • "The UNIMUX-DVI-8HD is a high quality dependable KVM switch. We have tried other switches and most seem to lag when switching ports. The NTI switch allows us to switch ports quickly."

  • "The 16-port High Density USB DVI KVM Switch was used to toggle between 14 DVI inputs with mouse and keyboard functions. We have chosen this model because it is capable of handling high video resolutions such as 1920x1080, as in our application. The setup was very easy, and the operations did not need any special knowledge. We are pleased with the product, and will be using it in our future system designs."

  • "The UNIMUX-DVI-16HD is great. I love having DVI (finally!) and with enough ports (finally!). I also like that I can boot my multiple computers with multiple operating systems with no regard for the UNIMUX switch. (ie I can boot them all at the same time.) It is great having the smaller cables with a simple and single USB connector at the PC side. All of these features really help me to be more efficient."
