by single-mode fiber optic cable. The transmitter unit connects to the
computer and the receiver unit provides connections to the user interface
devices. Advanced peripheral capability supports PS2, full duplex stereo
audio, serial (RS-232), USB 1.0 (HID) device ports, USB 1.1 and 2.0.
    The VelocityKVM not only extends video, it effectively supports multiple
video source(s), with unsurpassed image quality, over a single fiber. The end
result is error-free transmission, with no frame or bit dropping and complete
immunity to interference. The system also offers dual-link DVI, one
single-mode fiber, and two DVI video channel options.
