Fast multi-monitor, multi-system control

View and operate four source computer systems from any Extio receiver unit and control them with a single keyboard and mouse set. Seamlessly shift control from one target source system to another simply by moving your mouse across a multi-screen desktop. 

With Aggregator Mode, you can shift from the current desktop to the next by moving the mouse freely across multiple desktops. For an even more efficient way to control multiple KVM systems, the Tile View feature enables you to display up to four separate systems on one 4K or FHD monitor. 


Secure KVM control

A non-intrusive solution, Extio 3 doesn’t require any additional software installation on the source system. It also features multiple built-in safety protections to prevent security gaps in the safeguarding of sensitive information: 

  • Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to encrypt KVM signals transmitted between transmitter and receiver units. 
  • USB encryption and device management to block or authorize USB 2.0 devices.
  • Integration with Microsoft® Active Directory® and with an IPSec (Internet Security Protocol) VPN client to ensure secure KVM extension over the internet.

Ease of integration

Ease of Integration Icon

With Extio 3’s industry-leading technology, users can leverage existing IT networking equipment and standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure for seamless deployment and operations, extending up to four video signals using a single copper or fiber optic cable to reduce installation costs. Matrox Extio 3 KVM extenders fit readily into certified systems with plug and play deployment; there is no need to install additional software. Extio 3 IP KVM transmitter units are designed to optimize available space, and come either as a rack-mountable appliance or an integrated PCIe® card.

Smart control

Extio Central Manager is an intuitive, easy-to-use software to remotely configure, manage, and monitor all Extio 3 units from a central location on the network. An on-screen display (OSD) on Extio 3 receiver appliances allow operators to conveniently preview all authorized computer desktops—readily identifiable via thumbnail previews—to instantly access and switch between multiple systems.
