KVM over IP Systems

Datapath’s Arqa KVM over IP systems are suitable for those who need to monitor, control and share multiple sources. Arqa is capable of supporting up to 2000 endpoints contained within a single 1Gb switched video distribution network. Arqa’s intra-frame compression algorithm results in visually lossless image quality and zero latency.

The Arqa range comes in either copper and optical transmitter and receiver variances.

Push and Pull Support

Create the ideal control room solution by combining Arqa KVM systems with Datapath’s video wall controllers. Seamlessly push and pull sources to workstations and onto video walls.
