KVM Extender Hosts / PCIe Cards

When it comes to providing remote access for any PC or workstation, it is easy to do with Amulet Hotkey KVM Extenders solutions. Simply plug the KVM Extender remote workstation host or PCIe card into your PC/Workstation, connect to your network and you are ready to access your workstation from a remote access client. Whether you are connecting across the office, from home, across the country of from continent-to-continent your workstation becomes a performance graphics cloud computing platform. Amulet Hotkey KVM Extender solutions use KVM-over-IP technology based on the industry standard hardware PCoIP remote display protocol to meet the needs of professionals with graphically demanding applications and expect the highest performance.

Amulet Hotkey develop KVM Extenders in multiple form factors to fit into a broad range of PCs and workstation environments and include options for:

  • Rackmount KVM Extender Host: When you can’t open the workstation, laptop or system to install remote access software or add PCIe remoting cards and need a high-density KVM Extender solution.
  • Desktop KVM Extender Host: when you need remote access but cannot add a PCIe card or cannot install remote access software.
  • Remote workstation card: when you already have a GPU, or want a specific GPU in your workstation.
  • Remote workstation graphics card: a combined remote workstation and graphics card when you have limited PCIe slots available and require a dual function card.
