The DKM is a hybrid matrix switching solution for multiple signal types in an innovative KVM product system. This system replaces multiple devices with one integrated solution by supporting routing, switching, and multi-point distribution of DVI-DualLink, DVI, VGA, 3G/HD-SDI, HDMI, analogue video, USB HID, USB 2.0/3.0, digital and analogue audio, RS-232 and RS-422. The DKM system consists of a central switch and DKM extenders providing the connections and interfaces for the consoles and computers.

Two series of DKM switches are available. The DKM FX is a fully modular KVM switch offering 48, 80, 160 or 288 ports that can be freely configured as input or output with HD SDI, CATx or fibre connections. The DKM FXC is the compact version of the DKM FX offering 8, 16, 48, 64 or 80 freely configurable in and output ports preconfigured for CATx or fibre connections.

This tool assists you in assembling the central modular DKM switch according to your needs or finding the alternative compact version DKM FXC.
