The Matrix Grid I/O Board is used with the DKM Modular KVM Matrix Switches, which provide a high-performance, modular enterprise routing system for complete in-band signal distribution of high-definition video, audio, and data over CATx, multimode or single-mode fiber optic cable, supporting up to 576 I/O ports in a single frame.
Using the Grid I/O Boards significantly reduces the cabling effort between DKM Modular KVM Matrix Switches. In a setup based on two matrices, the grid I/O boards can be directly connected via the fiber port. In a setup using multiple matrices, the second fiber port on each grid I/O board enables you to set up a ring topology with four grid connections on each port. Each matrix connects to two other matrices.
