VertivTM Avocent® HMX 6500R eliminates physical restrictions to data access across hybrid networks for broadcast, post-production and other users of hybrid IT in North America
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Vertiv, (NYSE: VRT), a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, today introduced the Vertiv™ Avocent® HMX 6500R receiver, a high-performance KVM receiver that allows users of Avocent® HMX KVM switches to seamlessly switch between virtual and physical machines from their workstation. The Avocent HMX 6500R does not require additional transmitters to access virtual machines, opening up fast, easy access and control to data and files all across today’s complex IT environments. It is available in North America.
The IP-based Avocent HMX 6500R integrates seamlessly with existing Avocent HMX KVM systems, allowing secure, unlimited access to virtual machines across enterprise and colocation facilities. It eliminates the distance limitations inherent when physical connections are required, while still delivering an uncompromised desktop experience. The Avocent HMX 6500R offers DisplayPort video capabilities and expands data and file access in broadcast control rooms and postproduction facilities, mass transit control centers, government agencies, and for any organizations with hybrid IT architectures.
“Hybrid IT deployments are becoming the norm for most organizations, and software providers increasingly are delivering their platforms in both on-premise and virtualized formats,” said Angie McMillin, vice president and general manager of IT Systems solutions for Vertiv. “The Avocent HMX 6500R receiver eliminates any distinction between those formats and delivers seamless, unrestricted data access across today’s hybrid environments.”
The Avocent HMX6500R receiver is also compatible with Avocent® HMX Advanced Manager software, which expands the capabilities of the entire Avocent® HMX family of KVM switches and extenders to create a true, switchable matrix between multiple transmitters and receivers.
Last year, market intelligence firm IHS Markit ranked Vertiv the No. 1 supplier of remote IT management solutions worldwide in its KVM Switches and Serial Consoles Report 2019. For more information on the Vertiv Avocent® HMX 6500R and the entire Avocent® HMX KVM family, visit Vertiv.com.
