Multiple remote monitoring screens
I have DCS system (control room) having 2 monitoring screens. We use these 2 screens run our plant.
Now i need to place one of these DCS screens complete with its keyboard and mouse in another room (conference room) 60 meters away.
How can i extend the VGA, Keyboard and mouse (which networking gaugets are required).
The tricky part is i have only one client CPU whre currently the 2 screens are connected and are at control room.
Any body with ideas on how to split Monitor screens, keyboards and mouse?
A solution from Matrox is recommended, eventhough I believe there is more in the market. For the remote screens (KVM) you can use the Extio product. and for the Local screens you hae to buy the Matrox graphic cards which are compatible with the Extio. This means you get a local video and also have the possibility of remote KVM. But all has to be of the Matrox brand as they are compatible with each other.
This solution I know and works in practice, very recomendable and good performance. Extio uses fiber so distance can be big. I think there must have other solutions but I am not aware of these.
