Interworld Electronics has released the ST-IPUSBH-1G HDMI USB KVM over IP Extender with Audio, RS232, and IR support from Network Technologies Inc. The ST-IPUSBH-1G provides remote KVM (USB keyboard, USB mouse, and HDMI monitor) access to a USB computer or HDMI source up to 330 feet over a Gigabit network using a single CAT5e/6 cable.

Each ST-IPUSBH-1G consists of a local unit that connects to a computer or HDMI source, and a remote unit that connects to a monitor, mouse, keyboard, speaker, microphone, and other USB devices. The local and remote units can be connected together for a Point-to-Point connection via CAT5e/6 cable or a Point-to-Many connection via a managed network switch. All signals can be extended up to 330 feet in a Point-to-Point connection or up to 660 feet in a Point-to-Many configuration with a managed switch located at the midpoint.

The ST-IPUSBH-1G provides full Infrared Remote (IR) control of the HDMI source from the remote HDTV using the existing source remote control. Four USB 2.0 connections are provided for keyboard, mouse, flashdrive, HDD, or touchscreen display control. DB9 connectors at each end provide 2-way RS232 commands at baud rates up to 115200 for serial touch screens or other devices.

The ST-IPUSBH-1G features a built-in default EDID configuration table for monitor configuration, supports DDC2B protocol and is HDCP and HDMI v1.2 compliant.

Support for multiple transmitters and receivers requires a managed network switch. The system is easy to expand, additional receivers can be added as you add more control stations. Managed network switches can be cascaded to extend the distance between the transmitter and receivers. Up to 16 transmitters can be connected per individual network switch or between cascaded network switches.

When using multiple remote units, only one unit can have USB control over the source at any time. Simply press and hold the USB link button on a receiver for 3 seconds to gain USB control.

Analogue audio signals are transmitted via USB. A deactivated remote unit will continue to display video but does not provide analogue sound or USB user control. HDMI digital audio will still pass through as it is embedded in the video signal.
