The Avocent AMX™ Analog High Performance KVM switch is designed for organizations that need to provide workers the ability to seamlessly access and share one or more computing resource(s) which are physically separated from their work environment. This solution provides users with an "at-the-desktop" experience from their work stations to any appliances, PCs or computing resources attached to the Avocent AMX™ Analog High Performance KVM switch. This secure, real-time, high-quality, "at-the-desktop" user experience is perfect for demanding environments such as pre and postproduction editing (broadcast), control rooms (broadcast, industrial, manufacturing, energy/utilities, IT, telecom and emergency response) and collaborative environments (training/simulation, medical diagnosis and imaging and financial trading desks).

The Avocent AMX™ Analog High Performance KVM switch is used in the command centers of major power plants; streamlines the editing of Hollywood blockbusters and is used in production environments by a vast majority of major broadcasting television and cable networks. In these and other cases, the Avocent AMX switch enables organizations to improve employee productivity, reduce IT costs and, ultimately, produce better business results for their customers.

The Avocent AMX™ Analog High Performance KVM switch is the ideal solution for these demanding environments. The Avocent AMX matrix switch can be deployed in a secure, closed, matrix environment and can offer reduced IT administration costs due to its easy-to-configure architecture. The centralized Avocent AMX™ Analog High Performance KVM switches provide users the ability to build completely redundant systems with automatic failover and virtually instant switches when switching between target systems.

The Avocent AMX™ Analog High Performance KVM switch centralized management features such as LDAP-based user rights management and event logging, keeping a centralized record of user access. Its matrix nature--of existing on its own proprietary matrix systemallows for its use within high-security environments.
