The Vertiv Avocent HMX 5000/6000 series is a secure, high performance, IP-based KVM extender solution.
Using standard IP infrastructure, it is possible to route any user station to any computer attached to the network without any compromises to video quality or control. This enables you to locate your critical computing hardware in a secure and temperature controlled environment away from the user workstation while maintaining a pixel-perfect desktop experience.

USB 2.0 with Class Control
Enables connection of USB devices from mice and keyboards through to graphics tables, jog shuttles, joysticks, and 3D explorers, alongside mass storage devices.
Redundant Network Operation
The units are able to detect whether the network is operational and can automatically change to its second network port if a failure is detected.
Ideal for Control Rooms
- Plug and Play
- 100m extension distance on single Catx; unlimited using standard IP network
- 500m to 10km over fiber
- Either dual link dual head, or single link or single head configurations available
- Resolutions up to 2560×1600 @ 60hz
Truely unlimited extension distances
Extension distance is not limited to a single 100 meter cable length – If you need to extend further, simply add a 1GbE network switch to achieve even greater distances. The units are also fitted with SFP cages to accept fiber optic transceivers which enable much greater extension distances.
Single CATx cable or fiber for greater flexibility
This significant asset is what gives you the freedom to use the full variety of cable links that you typically find within an average structured cabling system. The result is that you can achieve reliable links, regardless of whether the cables are CAT5e, CAT6 or CAT7
Real time control with perfect digital video
Using a spatially-lossless encoding system, with 1:1 pixel mapping. The digital video you receive is the same as the digital video leaving the remote computer.
For applications where security is of high importance, the system has the ability to disable the use of non-HID devices, meaning there is no need to physically block USB ports to prevent the use of mass storage devices.
