As workplaces face restructuring and decentralization is inevitably enforced, control room operations are being challenged to pivot effectively throughout these safety protocols in the new normal. Despite manpower shortages, managing escalations with secure, precise, and timely data from real-time monitoring and dynamic collaboration has become measurably more mission-critical than ever.

KX9970 is a high-performance KVM over IP transmitter/transmitter system that allows connection to a DisplayPort computer and enables secure, remote, and uninterrupted access to the computer from a 5K DisplayPort KVM console over an Intranet or a dedicated LAN. With the transmitter console installed at a separate location from the transmitter within a standard IP network, mission-critical control room operations become more ergonomic, user-centered, and task-oriented, while remaining separate from any adverse environmental interference.


KX9970 expands on previous models with support for up to 10 Gbps optic fiber network connection, transcendent 5K audiovisual performance, speedy peripheral data sharing, and many other new features. This future-proof KVM over IP matrix system solution, incorporating flexible extender connections, visual collaboration, and system control, aims to streamline control room workflows to jump start operators' productivity with KVM over IP agility.

KX9970T 5K DisplayPort KVM over IP transmitter is a high performance IP- based single-display transmitter, where the transmitter can transmit a computer's keyboard, video, mouse, and USB signals to the transmitter for providing separate console accesses from both the transmitter's and transmitter's locations. The setup allows extended access to computer systems via a USB console (USB keyboard, USB mouse, DisplayPort monitor) over Intranet, enabling users to place the computers in secure and temperature-controlled environments, which may be isolated from the user workstation.

KX9970KX9970 supports one DisplayPort video display for delivering video resolutions of up to 5K (5120x2880 @ 30Hz), and offers flawless and lossless video quality with extremely low latency. KX9970 is equipped with one RJ-45 port and two SFP+ slots. 10-Gbps SFP+ fiber module expansions are supported for fiber optic network connections and a transmission distance of up to 10 km. For connection flexibility, both KX9970 transmitter and transmitter models can be connected either directly to each other or via a high-speed network over a copper-based or fiber-based LAN. KX9970 also features dual power supply capability for power redundancy to ensure reliable services. KX9970T can be set up at the workstation, mounted onto a wall or at the rear of a rack with its space-saving 0U rack-mount design.

As an IP-based matrix extender, KX9970 can be installed in flexible configurations, including point to point, point to multipoint, multipoint to point, and multipoint to multipoint. When combined with the KVM over IP Matrix Manager (CCKM), it can be integrated into a KVM over IP matrix system (multipoint-to-multipoint) for providing more flexible applications in different working environments.

By integrating CCKM with KX9970, IT administrators can benefit from advanced features such as auto detection of all KX9970 devices on the same subnet for the sake of fast installation or configuration, username / password authentication and authorization, and the ability to define different types of connections that can be switched and shared.

Security features of KX9970 include 256-bit AES encryption for secured data transmissions, as well as RADIUS, LDAP, Active Directory, TACACS+ for 3rd-party authentication services.

In conclusion, KX9970 is the most cost-effective and convenient way to provide full digital extension for control room applications through a network.

Native DisplayPort Signal Processing with 12-bit Deep Colors

Aided by the graphics card's dithering effect and HDR 10, KX9970 brings a wider array of luminosity with smoother image rendering, providing an impactful user experience to considerably uplift control room productivity.

KX9970Spectacular Video FPS to Facilitate eSports Broadcasting
With eSports booming and beginning to rival traditional sports leagues in viewership, it's more important than ever to broadcast impeccable coverage of global gaming events and tournament where every tiny detail is crucial to viewers. KX9970's support for 1920x1080 @ 240Hz / 2560x1440 @ 144Hz allows broadcasting producers to seamlessly switch live between on-scene players and gaming feeds without experiencing any impactful lag or interruption while the video is being streamed.

Enhanced Isochronous USB Transmission
In addition to peripheral sharing (such as cameras, microphones, speakers, and more), the USB peripheral ports are capable of isochronous transfer communication to facilitate USB data transmission at a higher rate.

Fail-Safe System with Network/Power Redundancy
KX9970 provides network/power redundancy that reinforces system reliability by maintaining uninterrupted operations and seamless power failover during any contingency. KX9970 extenders are equipped with two SFP slots and one RJ-45 port to allow fiber and copper network connections, ensuring real-time data transmission and robust system uptime.

Panel Array™ Mode to Maximize Remote Console Efficiency
In tandem with CCKM (KVM over IP Matrix Manager), the operator at each remote console connected to a KX9970 transmitter can benefit from ATEN's Panel Array™ mode that enables simultaneous view of video sources from multiple transmitters in 2x2 up to 6x6 multiview layout on one screen.

KX9970Effortless KVM over IP Extension
KX9970 guarantees secure, extendable, and zero latency KVM over IP data transmission with no distance constraint to expedite real-time situational awareness for control room management. Extended data is bolstered with AES 256-bit encryption before transmission over the network and decrypted at the transmitter for disclosure.

KVM over IP Control Access as Emergency Measure
KX9970 comes equipped with a PS/2 port for connection to a KVM over IP Access Control Box (2XRT-0015G)**, which can be used to stop all remote transmitter connections in times of emergency to allow technicians to perform timely troubleshooting and required maintenance at the local console.

Comprehensive Video Wall Collaboration to Reinforce Teamwork Efficiency
When integrating with the video wall, KX9970 features ATEN's patented Boundless Switching which allows operators to intuitively switch control from one computer to another by moving the mouse cursor across screens, in order to respond to any incident with escalated awareness. Furthermore, all screen contents can be "pushed" and "pulled" for prompt collaboration, sharing, and troubleshooting as required between workstations and the video wall, facilitating a streamlined control room workflow to maximize informed decision making.

KVM over IP matrix system for Control Rooms of the Future
KX9970 deployment is flexibly scalable, allowing point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, multipoint-to-point, and multipoint-to-multipoint installations to accommodate a multitude of industrial applications. KX9970 extenders can be mixed and matched in a matrix configuration for installation, and this KVM over IP matrix system allows for effortless and centralized management of all extender connections via CCKM – the KVM over IP Matrix Manager's web GUI or an iPad app.

KX9970 is perfectly suited to mission-critical control room applications where secure KVM over IP agility, real-time monitoring, and ergonomic desktop operations are demanded, including broadcasting NOCs, ATC towers, & production line monitoring. It is also ideal for professional gaming.
